ABOUT THIS EVENT
Business & Technology
You write about tech. You write about cats. You write about fashion. You write about sports.
Whatever topic you blog about, it's obvious that you want to captivate your readers, and also (rightfully so) get as much compensation out of your fans as you can while serving them.
This class will focus on how you as a content creator can motivate your readers to donate to you as a artists to keep you producing the writing/music/video/podcasts they love.
Len Kendall, blogger, and founder of new company CentUp will talk about lessons he's learned as a blogger and startup founder focusing on helping content creators earn money for their work. No sales pitch, promise!
All ages welcome
1) Watch this amazing video by Amanda Palmer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xMj_P_6H69g
2) Have a blog/site with at least 100 active readers. Note: This class isn't focusing on growing your audience, it's more about leveraging the one you already have. (Granted many of the points discussed will leader to the former)
3) Voluntarily: Follow the "teacher" Len on Twitter: twitter.com/LenKendall
4) I'd like half the session to be a bit of "show and tell." If you're comfortable presenting in front of others, please email me (prior to the class) with a link to your most popular blog post and a few short sentences on why you think it was such a successful post. We'll likely go through 3-4 examples so please don't be offended if yours doesn't get picked.Cancellation Policy

I ran a 1000 day-in-a-row project called the3six5 which featured a new writer each day sharing the story of the last 24 hours.
I proposed to my fiance Katie using internet memes. (Seriously. Google "SayYesKatie")
I started a company called CentUp which will help artists get compensated for their work. Prior to becoming an entrepreneur, I was Digital Director at Global PR firm GolinHarris where I helped establish social media programs and create content for Fortune 500 brands.
