    Excerpts from WABW Tech Camp sessions

    The WABW Tech Camp offered three sessions designed to help women become more acquainted with technology. The camp – held Saturday, Oct. 23, 2o1o, in Philadelphia – was sponsored by We Are Black Women and Digital Delta Media.

    Here are excerpts from the sessions:

    Blogging:      

    Before getting started, choose your passion or subject matter, whether it’s a hobby, politics, community events, healthy living or restaurant reviews.        

    Choose a purpose for the blog: Why do you want to blog? What do you want to convey?      

    Register your own name as a domain name in case you want to start a business or other enterprise of your own someday. The cost is minimal per year and you can do this through Blue Host, GoDaddy or any other hosting company.      

    Register the name of your blog. You can do the same through the host companies.      

    Choose a platform for your blog, using the free blogger.com or wordpress.com (or another, such as Tumblr). If you’re more advanced, try WordPress.org that gives you more control over your site.      

    Create your blog on the platform you choose. Be consistent and blog often.      

    An alternative: If writing a blog isn’t your style, consider Blog Talk Radio and create your own online radio show.
