New year, new blog? Start on the right foot.

Our popular get-started course, Blogging 101, returns in January. Learn more and register.

Registration for January’s course is now closed – Blogging 101 will be back in February!

Thinking of starting a blog, or re-committing to an older one? Blogging’s more fun with a little help from your friends: join us in Blogging U. for Blogging 101: Zero to Hero this January, and give your blogging skills a boost.

Blogging U. courses combine expert advice with personalized help and a supportive community. Reach your own creative goals, improve your technical know-how, and make new friends!

Blogging 101 is our foundational, get-started course: three weeks of bite-size blogging assignments that take you from “Blog?” to “Blog!” January’s course runs from Monday, January 4 through Friday, January 22.

Here’s how it works:

  • Every weekday, we’ll send you one new, bite-sized assignment to help you publish a post, customize your blog, or engage with the blogging community.
  • You’ll write posts and work through the assignments on your blog, to develop and focus it.
  • When you need a helping hand, you’ll have access to a private site, The Commons. There, you can connect with other participants, share your work, and get support from WordPress.com Editors and Happiness Engineers.
  • You’ll walk away with a stronger focus for your blog, several published posts and a handful of drafts, a theme that reflects your personality, a small (but growing!) audience, a grasp of blogging etiquette — and a bunch of new friends.

Whether you’re just getting started or want to revive a dormant blog, we’ll help you build good blogging habits and blogger connections that will keep you going over the long haul. And of course, it’s completely free!
