Free computer class: Using BlogsPhiladelphia, PA, --- Promoting an organization's agenda in the 21st century takes an internet presence. But, how does an organization or individual on a shoestring budget convey information via the internet? With the ongoing Internet evolution, community members have more tools at their fingertips than ever before to accomplish this required self-promotion.
On Saturday, November 15, 2008, Liberation Fellowship Community Development Corporation will host a free computer workshop class called, "Using Blogs" to teach individuals and organizations how to use the internet as an excellent resource for hunting, gathering of resources and promoting their agendas.
This workshop is an excellent opportunity for grass roots organizations and community members to learn more about a wide range of e-topics, including some fantastic how-to content for social networks and other tools.
During this 3 hour hands-on workshop, participants will learn: What is a blog? Why do I/my organization need one? How can I build and maintain a blog for free? How can I promote my blog? How can I use a blog to generate revenue?
