Blogging: Learn to use this tool like a pro.
Join Lee Warren in the CLASSroom this week and learn how to use blogging to enhance your marketing efforts (including the ever-important, establishing a platform). And if blogging is new to you, he'll be available to answer your questions about how to choose a service, what you need to know before you start, and anything else you might want to know."
"Lee has been blogging since 2003 and he has used all of the major blogging platforms, including Typepad, Word Press, and Blogger. He used to write a political blog and he has blogged in the past for a third party presidential candidate. He currently writes a personality based blog called Little Nuances, a baseball blog called Royal Reflections, and a Christian sports blog called The Christian Sports Blog. Blogs have opened all sorts of doors for Lee, including a discussion with a South Dakota legislator (even though Lee lives in Nebraska), invitations to several roundtable baseball discussions on blogs such as Ball Star (run by a writer for the Kansas City Star newspaper) and websites such as Baseball Digest, and he's been contacted by representatives of various athletes which has led to several profile articles being placed in magazines and newspapers. Little Nuances has been a finalist the past two years in the Weblog Awards, it has also been named "Blog of the Day" by several websites, as well as receiving a "Thinking Blogger Award" from a fellow blogger. Most recently, Little Nuances was mentioned in a NY Times blog."
