Upcoming Class @ Georgetown University: Joining the Political Blogosphere



I'm excited to be co-teaching a short course this June at Georgetown University with my husband, Dr. Hans Noel. We'll be discussing and practicing political blogging. Details below. Register today through Georgetown University.

JOINING THE POLITICAL BLOGOSPHERE
Georgetown University
McCourt School of Public Policy
Executive Institute Short Course

COURSE DESCRIPTION
This course will provide you with the tools necessary to transition from a writer with great ideas to a connected, potentially influential political blogger. We will cover every step of the blogging process, from the creation of the blog, including buying a domain and choosing a platform, to the promotion of your blog with social media and through guest blogging. Extensive time will be spent on writing for the blog format. Blog posts are unlike other writing, and to be successful, they need to embrace the medium. Guest speakers will discuss the experience of blogging about politics in DC.

TARGET AUDIENCE
This course is designed for anyone interested in starting a blog. No prior experience is expected.

COURSE GOALS
By the end of the class, students will be able to set up a blog, write posts that fully make use of the blog format, and promote their blog.

FACULTY
Dr. Hans Noel is an Associate Professor of Government at Georgetown University. He is one of the founding members of "Mischiefs of Faction," a blog about political parties. He is also an occasional contributor to the award-winning "Monkey Cage" blog, published by The Washington Post.
