My first blogging lesson

Friday, 22 October 2010
I wish I had a bit more cash so I could donate it to Friends of Literacy, a charity I'm involved in Knoxville. We help adults learn how to read and specifically get a GED so they can get out in the work place and earn money for their families.

Since I don't have a lot of extra green, I can certainly donate my time which is what I did early this month. I auctioned off a Blogging Lesson with Wine and Cheese at our Writer's Hall of Fame fundraiser. Kem bid on it and won and invited three of her good friends to learn how to blog at her place. I brought the cheese and wine.

The ladies were excellent sports and stuck with me for the entire two and a half hours through reloading web pages, clicking on certain links and filling out profiles.

By the end of the night we all had new blogs and everyone knew how to start a new post, link to other posts and add pictures. Melissa even designed a poll question for her readers and posted it.

Next week I'm going to meet up with my friend, Ace. She's going to "pay" me with dinner. Fair trade!
