Clutch Magazine Offers Summer Blog Academy

I'm pleased to see more and more Black bloggers taking their craft seriously. Dede Sutton, the sister who runs Clutch Magazine (BBR #17), plans to partner with with Black Web 2.0 (BBR #237 and others to create a summer series that helps her readers learn how to succeed online. The seminar will go over just about every element someone should know when entering the online game. Also, it will hip them to the most up to date trends in social media.
Some of the topics to be discussed in the Summer Blog Academy include:
  • How to make money from your blog or website.
  • Tactics to increase traffic.
  • Learn about social media/marketing in general.
  • Learn how to set up, design and maintain your site.

It should be an interesting experience. I plan to participate as a prelude to attending the Blogging While Brown Conference in Atlanta on July 18-20.

That sounds like it is going to be awesome! I love how our community (contrary to popular belief) can pull together to do things for one another.
BTW - I just nominated you for the category of "Most Important Site For Black America"
on the BlackWebAwards.com website!

Peace & Love!

Ms. Marvalus - An online magazine? Let me know how I can help. Have you seen the magazine created by Purple Zoe?
