Blogging: Social Media Practicum

Instructor: Sandeep Junnarkar
This workshop takes academic attendees through the basic steps of establishing a blog — an online space to highlight their research and accomplishments. We’ll consider the merits of various free plug-and-play blogging platforms like WordPress.com and Tumblr. While each has its merits, we’ll delve into WordPress.com during this session, including the following skills:
- Creating a WordPress.com account
- Writing a post, title and excerpt for each entry
- Uploading and/or embedding media (photographs and PDFs)
- Hyperlinking to your work
- Changing design themes
- Updating or editing posts
