Meet Alaíde Ventura and learn a bit about who she is, her professional career, and the books she has written. She explains how blogs helped her turn writing into a daily habit and structure her ideas to transform them into stories. She also introduces you to the writers that have had the biggest influence on her personal style.

Start with a quick history lesson about the blog to understand where it comes from and how it works. Analyze different types and formats until you find the one that best suits your creative goals. Then, thoroughly explore the key concepts of personal narrative and style.

Now it's time to set up your blog! Study the pros and cons of the three most popular platforms and choose your favorite. Give your blog a name and start shaping your voice by writing your first post. Next, establish the rules of the game: decide what you want to write, and how, why, when, and how often you're going to do so. Alaíde then teaches you some useful tricks to unblock your creativity when it seems like you're running out of ideas.

Write your first entries and analyze your blog with a critical eye by reviewing the features that make it engaging for your readers. Learn to differentiate between a personal diary and a personal blog and work on weaving a coherent thread throughout your content to create a blog that acts as a single narrative piece. To finish the course, Alaíde gives you some tips on how to captivate your readers and share your blog page with the world.
