Blogging with Crisis Skylight

The World of Blogging was the theme of a workshop I delivered this week for Crisis Skylight in Sheffield.

Crisis is a charity for single homeless people

Crisis Skylight South Yorkshire is an outreach service for homeless and vulnerably housed people. The charity delivers courses and activities within hostels, day centres and community venues. It was my first session with the team, and I loved it.

The course focused on how to set up and start a blog. As I write a book and running blog it seemed a great course for me to deliver. I always enjoy meeting a new group. In fact, having the opportunity to work with lots of people is one of the most rewarding things about being a freelance tutor.

The group worked incredibly hard and by the end of the day everyone had created a blog they were proud of. We had many different subjects including football, family, fashion and being transgender.

As well as introducing the group to blogging and creating a blog, my course included training on how to write a blog post, build an audience and use social networks to support your blogging. In a few hours we covered a lot. At the end of the day the group were determined to continue blogging. I’m very much looking forward to working with them again to see how their blogs develop.

In the meantime I am writing a guide to blogging. This will be useful for anyone who is thinking about setting up a blog. More details to follow.
