Black Belt Blogger is part of the Time4Writing.com and Time4Learning.com family. Our service is online education for children. This blogging course, our first venture into grown-up education, sprang from a fortuituous combination of a great teacher and some people who wanted to learn…
The Black Belt Blogger prototype course was developed by BBM (Black Belt Mama) in 2008, an educational techy person (john) who happened to be a blogger himself, and Kris, who pulled it all together (updated 12/09). Black Belt Blogger teaches students how to write an interesting blog and build a community of readers.
About Black Belt Mama (Black Belt Blogger Instructor)
“Most karate moms just do the commute; this one is working towards her black belt.”
I am a
30-something forever 29 year old work at home Mom. I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a degree in English Writing, Creative Nonfiction. I worked for a small literary journal as an Assistant Editor, at Clinique cosmetics (because the pay was better), at a graphic design firm, and as a high school English teacher before having my first daughter and deciding to stay at home. A few years later, I started my first blog “Black Belt Mama.”
One day I got an email asking me, “Why is your blog so engaging? Why is mine so much the opposite.” I took a look at his blog, emailed him a response, and was then cajoled into teaching this course. It’s been exciting to watch students take the course and create amazing blogs.
