Learn About Blogging ~ San Antonio Events

Blogging can be a hobby for fun or a job for money (or both). If you are blogger or you want to be, there are two upcoming local events that you won’t want to miss. As a blogger in this great city, I’m happy to finally be able to share about San Antonio events for bloggers!

Build a Website Using WordPress

This full day seminar is hosted by San Antonio Online Marketing Group and sponsored by local businesses for local start-ups, entrepreneurs and business owners. Yusuf Chowdhury, Founder and Digital Marketing Consultant, SEO trainer & Social Media Coach, has a reputation for helping others for the sake of helping others. His attitude comes through in his teaching and you will learn so bring your questions.

This seminar will focus on building a website using WordPress platform with hands on training so you can leave with a ready website for your business or blog.  This will be for beginners who don’t even have a website yet and for those of us who have WordPress sites and want to learn how to use it … you know, the ins and outs. 8 full hours to learn WordPress, yay!

It will be hands on so bring your laptops!

No cost to attend this event! Seriously. This is one time ‘you get what you pay for’ doesn’t apply.
