Welcome to Remedial Blog School

by Marinka on June 29, 2009

I’ve been blogging for over a year, which means that I am totally a blog expert with tons of blog wisdom to share.

So, if you’re a new blogger, or a pre-blogger, considering carving a place on the internet for yourself, you’re in luck! You know, because of the whole wisdom-sharing that I will be doing.

Although like the best teachers, I will sort of be winging this as I go along, I did want to give a brief overview in the EZ 2 Read Q&A 4mat.

Q: When and where will Remedial Blog School meet?
A: Every Tuesday, right here. Please show up bright eyed and bushy tailed, like a rabid squirrel.

Q: I am looking for excellent guidance on topics such as such as blog etiquette, the use of social media or the mysteries of StumbleUpon. Will Remedial Blog School help me?

A: Yes and no. Yes, because I will direct you to Jennifer of Playgroups are No Place for Children. Her 14-part series Blog Tips may be the most valuable lessons that I’ve learned about blogging. I still have the Blog Tips page bookmarked on my computer and review it periodically. If you are considering starting a blog or are relatively new to blogging–check it out. You can thank me later. No because I will be providing more of the do’s and don’ts of blogging, based on my personal experience. And a lot of the technical “how-to” questions will be answered by “hire someone to do it for you.” (Don’t worry, I’ll have suggestions of who!)

Q: Didn’t someone already write a sort of “Blogging for Dummies” post?

A: Well, Aunt Becky wrote Blogging for Dummies post, (like TWO WEEKS AGO, so it’s totally stale) which is great if you’re one of those weirdos who likes humor and information mixed together in one pithy post. But if you like several posts that drone on forever with their own self-importance over a series of months, then make yourself at home! Because Remedial Blog School is in session!

Q: What if I have a question that I would like addressed in a future Remedial Blog School post?

A: No problem! Just email your question to me at MarinkaNYC@Gmail.com and I will try to answer it in a future Remedial Blog School post. Please put “Remedial Blog School” in the subject line of your email.

Q: You keep saying “Remedial Blog School”. It’s really annoying.
A: Sorry.

Q: Will you stop saying it then?
A: No.

Q: If I faithfully read Remedial Blog School and take your advice, what can I expect?
A: A more satisfying blogging experience. And fewer wrinkles. Remember, I made many, many blogging mistakes, so you don’t have to.

Well, I think we can all agree that the Q&A session was both fun and informative, or perhaps, neither.

Please join me back here next Tuesday for our first official lesson:

I’m Starting a Blog! I Should Tell Everyone About It, Especially My In-Laws, Right?
