While MagentaScribe is for writing resources I think that this post will benefit anyone who has or is going to start a blog. I think that blogging is quickly becoming a vehicle for authors to self promote and interact with fans. Having three active blogs I can tell you that producing good content for all of them takes a huge amount of time. When I saw a description for Content Brew I could not wait to sign up. Turns out it was well worth it.
Description of the class from Momcomm site:
“In Content Brew, you’ll learn how to plan & create fresh content ideas for your blog, Facebook and Twitter. You’ll also learn ways to find content to share and tools to make doing all of this easier. At the end of this course, you’ll have anywhere from a month to a quarter’s worth of content planned out for your blog, Facebook page and Twitter (to a more-limited degree), not to mention a process that you’ll use over and over again.”
I know that sounds like a lot of information to be able to learn in one week. But Melissa does a great job of breaking it into manageable chunks that build momentum as you work through them. I was shocked at the amount that I learned about organizing my blogging, I have been doing this for about six years now.
Sense of Community
There is a Private Facebook group that is open to participants of each class, Melissa is available to answer questions, provide support and feedback. The group of individuals that were in my class have been great as well. It is nice to learn that you are not the only one struggling with this sort of issue, that there are others who are in the same boat.
Tools of the trade
The one thing that hit home for me was the use of technology to help make my digital world work smoothly. Now I could give you a list of all the wonderful things that are part of the class. But that would ruin the wonder that comes from finally using that app that you downloaded but never used to its fullest potential. I would not want to ruin it for you.

I am happy and a bit sad to report that the upcoming class is already sold-out, but if you click on the badge it will take you to a page where you can pick when the next class will take place. Also make sure that you sign up for her newsletter it is a good way to get the scoop on upcoming classes.
I will be the first to recommend this class to anyone who I talk to about blogging, what I learned has already made a difference in my on-line work flow. So if you are in need of a redo as to how you come up with content for your blog or are just starting out this is the class for you check it out.
