Blog Launch

Available either in NYC or long distance.

You want to start a blog. But you need technical help uploading content. Or you want help learning how to maintain and operate your blog. No matter where you are or where your blog’s at, Gotham’s Blog Launch can help.

We put you together, for a total of three hours, with a member of our Blog Squad—crackerjacks who are good at listening and know the ins-and-outs of blogging platforms. When you’re done, you’ll have a great-looking blog that you can update on your own.

In particular, you will learn to:

  • Customize your blog’s design and layout to suit your taste (using your platform’s available templates)
  • Post text, photos, videos, links, and more
  • Set up widgets that connect your blog to your social media platforms

Our experts will help you choose the right platform (WordPress, Tumblr, or Squarespace—the best options for beginners) and field your questions.

Note: This is not a web design or coding service. And we can only take your design as far as the templates of your chosen platform allow. If you want a fully customized design for your blog, then you will be better off hiring a designer.

Tuition: $300
