To start the morning off, we had a table set up with cupcakes, donuts, candy, coffee and mimosas for a late morning snack and at 10:30am we dove right into the content! We set up everyone’s hosting, installed WordPress, installed their WordPress theme and then go into learning all about WordPress’ dashboard. After breaking for a short lunch, we moved into creating a header and sidebar graphics.
We ended the 6-hour workshop by taking portraits of each attendee! Your blog isn’t complete without a fun, personalized photo on your sidebar! I edited one for each person there on the spot + had so much fun getting to know each attendee on a one-on-one basis. The last 30 minutes was dedicated to monetizing your blog with our sponsor and founder of Adproval, Matthew Anderson.
The first Haute Blog workshop was a success and we can’t wait to host another in Indianapolis in July! Erika is such an amazing partner and we have had so much fun connecting with talented and creative women.
A weekly email where I share things that made me stop and consider: opinions, other articles on the internet, trying new experiences, and products you might like to buy.
