Reminder: Blogging 201 this Friday

I was just reading over on the Informix Zone about the growth in traffic they've been seeing (doubling-to-tripling every year). It's great to see growth like that, as it really speaks to the value that is being derived from blogs.  

Eric Herber closes out his post making an offer for people in the Informix community to start their own blog on the Informix Zone site, which sounds like a great way to get started.  If Informix isn't yoru specialty, or if you're just looking for other options when it comes to starting your own blog, I wanted to remind you that I'll be holding the next Blogging 201 session this Friday, 12/12 (not the usual Thursday) at 11:00 ET (click here for your local time zone).

Unlike the other sessions, the bulk of the Blogging 201 is a screen-by-screen walkthrough of what it takes to get a blog up and running.  (In other words, if you already have a blog, this session probably will be redundant for you, and if you're just thinking about starting a blog, you may want to look into my Blogging 101 session instead.)

Blogging 201: From blank slate to blog in under an hour
So you've decided to start a blog, but aren't sure where to begin (or even what platform to use)? This session will start with a comparison of some of the most popular blogging platforms and then walk through step-by-step instructions to get you set up in no time!

The session will be held Friday, 12/12 at 11:00 ET. (View local time)
