Digital Evangelist: Blogging 101

Last July when I was charged with training NAACP members in digital media, I thought—here is a great opportunity for me to share my love for digital media with the NAACP family.  With that challenge in mind, I aim to teach folks about mobile, social media and everything in between.  My weekly blog will update you on my trainings; and give you info about how to sign up and equip yourself with the tools you need to disseminate your message well for your NAACP branch or chapter.

This week’s webinar is Blogging 101. I will discuss what blogging is, the different blogging tools you can use, and how blogging can bring light to the issues your branch is working on. Register and join me for the webinar Thursday at 9:15pm Eastern Time. 

During last week’s webinar, I talked about using mobile messaging for organizing.  I explained the uses for mobile messaging--how using it can help you broaden your audience, and I gave examples for how the NAACP uses mobile messaging at the national level. The ultimate goal being—that each unit start their own mobile messaging program. If you are interested in using mobile messaging for your branch or chapter, contact me at and I’ll be happy to assist you.

And please make sure to join me on our future webinars! Topics and dates are below:

Blogging 101 – August 8th

Twitter 101 – August 15th

Facebook 101 – August 22nd

Email for Organizing -- August 29th

MailChimp 101 -- September 5th

After you finish the webinar, please take a moment to fill out the Weekly Webinar Survey. Is there a topic you are interested in that is not being covered? Let me know! Our primary goal is to equip you with all the digital tools you need for your local NAACP unit. Look forward to seeing you on Thursday!
