MacTechnics Meeting

September 20, 2014

with Dee Overly

In this presentation we'll cover the gamut of blogging: the who, what, when, where, why and how of blogging.
We'll take a look at the past, the shakers and movers in the blog world, the broad scope and bring it home to the personal level.

We'll examine a variety of blog types, discuss what you personally might want to blog about and how you would get started,
and the tools that you need.

Then Dee will set up a free blog before your very eyes.
You can just watch the process or dive in and set one up for yourself
right along with her.

About our Presenter:

Dee Overly is a graphite and colored pencil artist.  She also has a love for computers and websites and built her first website about 15 years ago.  Dee is currently the gallery director and webmaster for the Riverside Arts Center in Ypsilanti.  She also teaches web and effective image classes at WCC through the Economic and Community Development Department. 


You bring in your questions; troubleshooting your
apps and hardware; how did I do that?
