Have you ever wondered how to start a blog? How to keep it alive? What to write about? What makes a blog “successful”?
At the October convention, Kansas Authors Club District 5 will host a seminar with a panel of successful bloggers. Each panelist is invited to share their personal blogging story, focusing on what makes a blog attractive to followers. After their short presentations, class attendees will be able to ask questions and receive thoughtful answers from the experts.

Sara Severance Weinert blogs at emptynestfeathers.blogspot.com
Regarding her blog she writes:
What does a mommy blogger do if she missed the mommy-blogging avalanche of the last century? She writes about the empty nest. MomQueenBee (Sara Severance Weinert) prattles about readjusting to life without four sons in the House on the Corner, and has opinions on many things. She tries to be amusing. (editor note: And often succeeds to the delight of her readers!)
If you have questions about how to manage a blog, you won’t want to miss this panel.

Wow! I continue to be surprised at the amount of planning that has gone into the Kansas Authors Club 2019 convention in Wichita. Just amazing! And these articles about the upcoming convention if collected could make a book–or at least a workshop. This blogger panel sounds really interesting. I’m sure I’ll learn a lot.
You think so? Since you are one of the teachers! The best way to learn is to try to teach someone else. Thanks for your comment.
