Waiting for the Right Time to Start That Business Blog? How About for a Good Cause?

Shaping a business blog at the new YMCA Pottery Studio

Have you been told, "Your business should be blogging"?

I'm not a fan of unsolicited advice, but if someone has told you that, and you agree – or want to find out how it's done to decide whether or not you agree - here's a chance to learn how to start writing a business blog and start funding the purchase of a pottery kiln for the YMCA Pottery Studio at the same time.

Business Blog Seminar – A Charity Fund-Raising Event for the Pottery Studio at the YMCA at Virginia Tech

Monday, October 19, 2009, 6:00 - 8:00 PM

YMCA at Virginia Tech, Conference Room, 1000 North Main Street, Blacksburg, Virginia

Seminar speaker?
Anne Giles Clelland, President, Handshake Media, Incorporated, a VT KnowledgeWorks member company

Who's attending?
Ten – and only ten – aspiring business bloggers

How much?
$100 per blogger

Hey, that's expensive!  10 x $100 = $1000!  How much does the speaker get?!
$0.  I'm not a fan of unsolicited advice, but I am a fan of start-up funding and we're going to seed the start-up fund for a pottery kiln.

Why a pottery wheel and a Pottery Studio at the YMCA?
From Gail Billingsley, Executive Director, YMCA at Virginia Tech:  "Our area is without a public access arts space.  We are building our own Pottery Studio to be able to offer classes year-round that will generate revenue to fund our community outreach programs."

See?  Revenue for quality of life for all.  That makes perfect business sense.

Here's how to register and pay for the Business Blog Seminar.
