I first head about Altitude Design Summit last January. Alt is a conference for bloggers that takes place yearly in Salt Lake City. When I heard about it I was so jealous of all the bloggers that got to go and learn all sorts of wonderful things about how to be a better and more successful blogger.
I was more than a little excited a few months later when I heard that Alt was bringing their classes to everyone throughout the year – not just in January to those lucky enough to attend the conference. Enter Alt Channel – a source for online classes about blogging. The classes are live, and hour long, and cost just $15.
So far I’ve taken two courses: ‘Understanding Analytics’ by Nicole Balch of Making it Lovely (and the amazing speaker at BlogPodium), and last Thursday I took The Organised Blogger: Tips and Tricks for Blogging Success’ by Victoria Hudgins of A Subtle Revelry. I’m still trying to wrap my brain around all the things I learned in my latest class, and I’m really hoping I’ll be able to implement some of the neat things she shared.
In the next little while I’m hoping to take advantage of some of the other classes they offer: Growing your Readership, Graphic Design for Bloggers, DSLR 101, Pinterest 101, and Photoshop for Bloggers. The courses they offer are generally repeated every month or so, so if you can’t make one scheduled class don’t worry – it’s bound to be offered again.
Have you taken any classes? Do you want to? Right now Alt (in partnership with Bing) is giving bloggers the opportunity to attend up to 4 ALT classes for FREE in the month of July. Yup – Free. If you’d like more info on how to attend click here.
So, what classes will you going to sign up for?
