Hello Socialites! After an unplanned hiatus, the Craft Social team is back and raring to go with big plans for 2015. Join us on Tuesday, January 27 at 7 PM EST for our first chat of the new year!

We’re going to chatting about the nuts and bolts of setting up a blog: choosing a platform, selecting themes and plugins and all those behind the scenes technical things that may be holding you back from starting a blog of your own. Bring your questions and your experience to the chat.

Added Bonus – a Giveaway!

To help you jumpstart your blogging career, we’ll be giving away 6 months of website hosting ($50 value), compliments of Lyonshost.com. Using the installers they provide, you can install a blogging platform in minutes and use what you learn at our chat to get your new blog up and running in no time.

Note: Lyonshost is owned by Jonathan Lyons, husband of CraftSocial team member, Barbara Forbes-Lyons
