Lunching and Learning and Wishing and Hoping

December 17, 2007

Today is Monday, a day that normally finds me in PJs and bunny slippers working in the home office.  But I made the trek into the main office today, because it’s a Lunch and Learn (!) day. 

What, you may ask, is a Lunch and Learn?  It’s an opportunity for our marketers to get together and talk about new technologies and how they impact our jobs.  Today is the blogging L&L, and I’ve been asked to talk about how to set up a blog. 

Against my personal preferences, I will be using Bloggerto do this demo.  I much prefer WordPress, but have to admit that it’s not always that intuitive at times (must be why WordPress For Dummies has been the #1 on the most popular blogging books list on Amazon).  I’ve heard TypePad is a breeze, but it’s a paid service, and not everyone will want to fork over their hard-earned moola to set up one of these puppies.  It’s in my best interests and everyone else’s for that matter, to go lowest common denominator here.

Wish me luck!

    Ellen, you didn’t need luck on this one… You did a fantastic job covering the in’s and out’s of launching and maintaining a blog. Very well done. It almost inspired me to start a blog…
