Today I helped Chris Watkins, a longtime contributor to the Ypsilanti Courier, start to set up a blog for her column. Watkins confessed to me that she’s pretty “old school” when it comes to new technology but is interested in finding ways to enhance her storytelling.
During her first visit, I went over some of the basics with her: Twitter and what it can do to help promote her blog; promoting articles on facebook and the basics of setting up a blog on Blogger.
We are still working to finalize her title and URL but that will come next week. In the meantime, I’m excited to see what kinds of ideas we can come up with together as we learn how to promote her writing. I’m sure it will be a learning experience for the both of us.
