UPDATE : Classes in Mumbai on September 16th and 17th, 2017. Limited seats left, Register today.
Weblogacademy.com, was launched in the first edition of #BNLF. We wanted to have a program that cut through all the Riff Raff and gave people a very transparent understanding of blogging. We found that many were trying to mimic the behavior of websites when blogging. Even though websites served as a decent reference point for a blogger, it had different objectives and principles. From the creative thought process that went into the writing of a blog to the ability to interact with an open mind, it was painfully obvious that blogging was a different beast and required a different way of thinking.
The training focuses on key aspects of your blog. It helps you understand how people look at your blog and what they would expect from you. This in turn helps you use your creativity to communicate while imbibing your flair in the mix!

Unlike other blogging workshops, the deliverables were realistic and rightfully implemented. Very lively and interactive workshop with focus to each of the participants.
Insightful and practical session. Can apply the learnings back on my blog and take it to the next level.
What the blogging workshop did for me was put me in touch with a part of myself that I had deliberately suppressed.
It was an amazing experience and a nice way of making new friends!
I learnt a lot from the workshops with Rama and IndiBlogger. The topics covered were very helpful and I have made a few changes in my blog based on the same.
