Gosh, where did March come from?

One minute it was February, then I blinked and before I knew it, it was March! Did that happen to you too? Well, let’s not waste any time then, we’ve got some new workshops lined up and an exciting surprise!

First up – for those enrolled in the Podcasting for Beginners course, we have a special guest joining us on March 15th: Cesar Abeid

You might recognize Cesar from our course materials – not only is he one of the VIP team members here at Automattic/WordPress.com, but he’s also an experienced podcaster and public speaker. You can hear him on his successful ongoing podcast, PM (Project Management) for the Masses !

He’ll be here to chat about, and demystify, monetization for your own podcast, his experience podcasting on the subject of project management, and of course to answer any of your burning thoughts – related to the course or otherwise!

This event will take place on March 15th at 17:30 (5:30pm) UTC time zone.

Please note that UTC is a specific time zone and you’ll need to convert this time to your local time zone to see what the start time is for you. To see what the start time converts to in your local time click here.

You can access the registration link from within the Podcasting for Beginners course here.

Next up (keep reading to get to the surprise)in the Blogging world, our March workshop is going to cover Reset & Planning!

What’s that you ask? Well, I’m glad you asked! (Yes, we’re going to pretend that you asked.)

This workshop is all about revamping your website, your strategy, and your content.

You might stagger what you review and revise, you might do it all in one shot. But this isn’t a once and done type of task. It’s something you should be doing with some regularity. There are no hard and fast rules about it. Some do a full site revamp every five years, some do it twice a year, or anything in between.

But the worst thing you can do is think that once you’ve built a website, you don’t ever have to do it again. That it’s a finished product that you can just keep plugging new content into.

For one, technology changes, and that can break things. Themes get retired for multiple different reasons. New features get created that weren’t available before. 

But also, styles, designs and trends change. This article shows us some interesting “then and now” comparisons.

Creating a website is never a destination and it’s never a finished project. Our recommendation is that once or twice a year you should be giving your website a facelift, or at very least doing an assessment.

But I’ve only just started creating my blogging site!

Perfect! That’s actually great news. Because all the things we’ll be covering in this workshop apply to you as well and you’ll be starting out with the right mindset of what to be heads up about in the months and years to come!

Join us in this workshop as we explore researching current trends in your niche and how to plan for a site reset – without starting from scratch, and without losing any of your existing content.

Oh yeah, the surprise…

EVERYONE is welcome! Normally these workshops are reserved for students of the paid Blogging for Beginners course. But not this one!
