Blogging is the new DJing, and I’m here to help you blog successfully. I have had the privilege of helping 20 to 40 ultra busy college students to launch real and professional blogs every semester, half of them online, for the last two years, and now I’m here to help you too.
My name is Susan, and yes, I really am a blogging professor. I have been teaching in higher ed since I got my MFA from Bennington College in 2000. Before I went to grad school, I did publicity and marketing for a book publisher before venturing out on my own as PR and writer for hire. I am the co-author/author of several books.
When I first started teaching, I taught at three colleges during one semester for little pay and no benefits, no office, no nothing except I loved being in the classroom. I loved meeting new students. I loved hearing their stories. I loved helping them learn what I could teach them.
I lucked out and scored a full-time position at a small private college until I moved on to my current position as a full-time instructor at Drexel University in Philadelphia. I am also the director of the department of communication online courses. I teach both online and face to face.
Welcome to my blog. I hope to help you get your blog started, and I will include other advice, like personal branding for college students and how to start an actual life after college as it arises because it always does. I consider it a privilege and honor to help new students of blogging.
