This Monday, the 21st, marks the first day of a new run of Blogging for Scrapbookers, an online class all about how blogs and scrapbooks are not all that different. It’s not to late to join us! If you’re thinking about it, here are ten reasons to jump on board!

Write with meaning.
There are blog posts that say a little and there are blog posts that say a lot. You know the posts you have read that made you really sit back and rethink something or even physically nod in agreement? The sort of reading material that captures your emotions? We’ll break down just how easy it can be to move your blog from a list of things that have happened to something that captures your true feelings and captivates your readers.

Keep in touch.
Have friends and family far away and wish you could keep them up to date with what’s been going on, but find it hard to find the time to write or phone everybody? Use your blog to write everything once, and in class we’ll discuss how to get your family involved so they communicate with you too, even if blogging isn’t for them.

Scrapbook with your blog.
Blogs are words and photos. Scrapbooks are words and photos. So really, they have the very same starting point, which means you can use your blog to gather your thoughts and words together and craft this part of your scrapbook page, even when you can’t get to your scrapbooking supplies. When you do have time to get crafty, you’ll have a bank of posts ready to help you. And if you’ve never approached a layout with the words written first, you’re in for something that can totally change the way you feel about the most important memories in your albums.

Make new friends.
Our class is filled with people who love the exact same thing you do: scrapbooking! And they all blog too. On our private message board, you can chat and get to know your fellow classmates and follow their blogs. Leave a comment for them and they might leave a comment for you and suddenly, new friends! There are several bloggers who met in our original class run in 2009 who are now the closest of friends. Love it!

Pretty up your corner of the internet.
Sold on the idea of having a blog but want to make it look great too? We’ll cover all the technical stuff (in an easy-to-follow way) for giving your blog a make-over, customising the look and making sure everything is exactly your style.

Remember little moments you might forget.
Scrapbooking is all about preserving our memories, right? We’ll talk specifically about ways you can use your blog to get the littlest of things you want to remember committed to words as soon as possible so you don’t lose the details between the time something happens and you get around to scrapbooking it. Whether you share your blog with the world, with a group of trusted friends or just keep it to yourself, this is something that makes blogging a fab journal to day to day life.

Something for everyone.
Whether you’re just thinking of starting a blog or you’ve been blogging for a long while, if you love scrapbooking there is something for you in this class. In our first run, some of the most amazing blog posts came from participants who hadn’t written a composition since school and some experienced bloggers pushed their blogs to the next level and even started their own blog-based businesses.

Discuss everything with like-minded bloggers.
When you read a book, it’s been edited by someone other than just the author. But blogging eliminates that step and lets us publish anything we want, whenever we want and from wherever we want. But sometimes a little direction and editing is just what we need to make things have that lovely polish. No scary editors here, but a members-only message board where you can discuss your goals or get opinions on a post from others in exactly the same boat.

Participate in multi-blog events.
One way to bring new readers to your blog is to participate in blog parties or events that jump from blog to blog. Throughout the class you’ll have the opportunity to participate in events like this and even step up and host one of your own. Jump in and have some fun when you see a topic that inspires you!

Continue your learning.
In addition to fifteen detailed prompts (delivered to your inbox, Monday to Friday for three weeks) you can also download two workbooks to continue your Blogging for Scrapbookers experience: Blogging Blueprints is a step-by-step technical guide for making things work on your chosen blogging platform and A Year of Blogging includes a blog post idea for every single day of the year, all written specifically for scrapbookers! Follow along daily or just refer to the workbook when you need some ideas to get your blogging thoughts going again.
