Our next offerings start this Monday, September 15. Blogging 101 is a month of bite-size assignments to help you build up your blog, and Writing 101 is a write-every-day challenge to help you build a writing habit and push you as a writer.

Blogging U. challenges are completely free, and a whole lot of fun. We’ll offer our best guidance and resources, and you’ll complete the exercises on your own time and in a way that works for you.
