Creating an Author's Webpage
Given how much commerce and communication take place online, now, an online presence is vital to any author. This session will outline some of the common modes of online presence, and give participants an opportunity to consider what kind of presence they wish—or have the energy!—to maintain. After that, the presenter will demonstrate how to create two basic types of website (blog-oriented and static) using a free Wordpress account, and briefly show a few other tools that can be used, such as Twitter and Weebly. There will be a hands-on segment of the workshop, to allow participants to work on creating or editing their own sites, so please bring your laptops or tablets!
