The German blogger workshop series called BLOGST came to Munich a few days ago. The workshop in Munich was entitled BLOGST PRO – blogging for advanced bloggers. Ricarda, the mastermind behind BLOGST, asked me whether I’d be interested an co-lecturing the workshop with her and it took me two seconds to consider – I said yes!
Teaching my first blogger class was pretty exciting. First I was a bit nervous, then uncertain what to teach and then I just had so much fun cause we had the best student bloggers ever in Munich. The days before the workshop I clicked through 22 German lifestyle blogs spanning from DIY over food blogs to fashion blogs and wondered what to teach those advanced blogger ladies.
During the workshop I talked about time management for busy blogger bees with full-time jobs or families, about editorial calendars, prettying up the blog with Photoshop and about networking. I revealed a few personal tricks and tweaks to blog efficiently, a few freebie sources and networking tips. The feedback was positive so I felt happy and relieved after a long day.
Beside the fact that I was the only guy among 23 ladies, I couldn’t help but admire the funky co-working space Combinat56 with its 50s decor. It was the perfect location to let the creative juices flow and work on our blogs.
After a super long workshop Saturday we rounded the things up by having dinner in a downtown restaurant and I felt like I not only accomplished my dreaded task of teaching my first blogger class, but I also gained 22 new blogger friends! I’d say that was worth all the hassle!
