Share Your Story: Blogging for Regular People

Thursday, September 15, 2022

A weblog - blog for short - is a popular way to share stories and opinions. Anyone can write one, but how is a different story. Join writer Josh Urban as he takes the mystery out of the technology, and helps you build your very own blog. You don't even need a computer! 

Urban will walk you through the basics. Bring yourself, and a story to share. Topics covered will include setting up a free blog, picking a name, and creating your first post.   

Registration required. Please call the Blue Ridge Library at 540-928-2900 to register.
