Being a Virtual Assistant I don’t often get to be in front of my clients. Since using MindFlow Cafe as my WiFi ‘go-to’ place until I leave for The BROAD journey, not only have I picked up a steady client, but I got the opportunity to join forces with their mission and teach a class on Blogging with WordPress.
Today I taught some new bloggers the in’s and out’s and the tips and tricks of blogging. We covered a great many aspect of beginner and intermediate blogging.

Search for Yourself
Be Unique but not too Far Out
Reading your Stats
Oh the list goes on and on. Blogging is a great tool for sharing information on any subject you find interesting, and believe me, if you like there’s others that will too. Reaching your target audience can take a little time and effort, but with the right knowledge and self determination; you’ll be a Blogging Guru in no time.
I guess I forget that not everybody knows what SEO is; Search Engine Optimization. Folks really found great value in the SEO portion of the session and in the fact that you really need to be sure at least the first 150 words of anything you post should always be unique. Typically this would be the case naturally, but with some businesses they think if they recycle the same message over and again, they make their lives easy. NOT SO!!! You simply find yourself lost in the Google Sandbox or becoming a “bad neighbor” and will not make your way to the top of search engines.
Oh so much information, but I really enjoyed teaching this class and I greatly appreciate the opportunity that MindFlow presented me. In fact, I’ve been working from MindFlow for well over a month and have even gotten a client out of the deal.
So yeah, score one for The Write Hand and for MindFlow – network, network, network.
