Mia Freedman, of Mamamia fame, recently put a few noses out of joint by suggesting that ‘Mummy Blogging’ is almost over. In fact, she spelled doom for all bloggers with her comment:

“We’ve really seen the twilight year of mummy blogs. Mummy blogs are almost over. In fact, personal blogs in general, have pretty much collapsed in engagement this year.”

There were also a lot of very influential people who quickly objected to her claims, some suggesting that blogging is stronger than ever, and that the influence of bloggers continues to grow to the point where brands are approaching them directly to help market and review products.



People become bloggers for various reasons – some just want to record their personal stories and thoughts while others want to raise awareness of an issue. People blog on every topic from the weird and wonderful to the serious and helpful, and there are niche blogs which focus on a very specific theme, and others who ramble on about anything and everything.

Have you always wanted to be a blogger but don’t know where to start?

Perth mum and social media guru Amanda Kendle has been teaching others about blogging and social media for five years and blogging for even longer.

Through UWA Extension she runs a one day course teaching the blogging basics – everything you need to start your own blog.

Over the full day course you will learn how to set up your blog, write posts, understand your audience, upload images, how to make money from blogging and issues such as copyright and privacy plus lots more.

Held in the University Club at UWA, the course is open to everyone. I attended Amanda’s workshop in 2010 and there was an eclectic mix of young and old, male and female, business and personal bloggers. Some had very strong ideas of what they wanted to achieve, others went along for inspiration and direction. At the end of the day, we all had our very own blog and many of them are still going strong.

Start Your Blog in a Day
When: Saturday 6th February, 2016, 9am to 4.30pm

Cost: $195 lunch and materials included
