Quick reminder, for those in the vicinity, or those coming in: I'm offering a 3-hour blogging workshop on Saturday at the National Council for Research on Women's annual conference, Hitting the Ground Running: Research, Activism, and Leadership for a New Era, on Saturday. The conference froms from June 5-7 at the Kimmel Center at NYU (60 Washington Square South). And for anyone convinced that the blogosphere can be ignored, I urge you to read last week's article in AdAge on just how mainstream it is--among women.
Developed in tandem with Courtney Martin, who will be out of town for this one, the session will be led with the assistance of Elizabeth Curtis.
You can still register for the NCRW conference, here. And thanks for passing it on to anyone you think might be interested! Description of the session below.
Strategic Blogging for Organizations, Women’s Centers, and Feminist Experts
Author and blogger Deborah Siegel will lead participants through the basics of blogging—both logistical and philosophical. Participants will leave with a sense of the ways in which blogging is changing the media landscape—especially for women!—and tools for how to start one for their organization or improve one that’s already off the ground. Topics will include: young feminism and activism online, reaching the momosphere, and publicizing events and publications through blogs.
