Improve your blog! The new BritMums workshop series

blog workshop


You’re not a newbie. You know your way around a blog fairly well, and you have a decent number of followers… but something is still missing. You can see your blog needs a spark, a fresh look, or possibly more focus. You have a loyal following, but you just can’t get beyond a certain number of followers.

It’s a common problem. That’s why we’ve developed a workshop to help you take the next step to improve your blog. Over the coming five weeks we’ll be looking at design, getting more followers, managing your list of contacts, the importance of an About page and how to create one, proven tips for working with brands straight from a PR, and what NOT to do with your blog.

We will also introduce you to our Resources page and you’ll get the chance to have a personalised blog critique at the end of the workshop.

Are you ready to take your blog to the next level? Then stick around, there’ll be some great ideas every Tuesday and Thursday lunchtime for these next five weeks!

This is an interactive workshop–please step up and ask questions. And if you know the answer to someone’s question, feel free to contribute!

Before we start, are there any specific questions you have about improving your blog? Leave them here in a comment and we’ll do our best to get them answered in this Improve your Blog workshop.


This Thursday watch for “Time for a blog rethink?” – our first post in the series – on redesigning your blog.

    This looks fab. I have just worked out how to do a header but still can’t fathom how to get the background I want. I shall be following with interest

    Would love to learn more about Layout, and how the look of the blog can gain, or turn off, readers?

    Also maybe a little bit on basic HTML? The more I blog the more I think it would be nice to understand a bit about how the code works so I can maybe use it myself?

    Thanks.. And it goes without saying… Great idea!

    I’d love to know what people like a blog to look like, aesthetically. Do they like it busy? Clear? What about adverts? Can’t wait to follow this series!
