From Bloggercon III, a session entitled Newbies led by Rececca MacKinnon.

It's "Blogging Evangelism 101," led by the ultimate non-techie. This session isn't just for newbies. It's also for veteran techies for whom blogging has become a way of life, but who are getting sick of explaining what a blog is to people who have never heard of one, or to people who are dismissive of blogs without really understanding what they are. It's a support session for people who could use some help spreading the gospel to non-technical blog-skeptics in their workplaces and communities.

For those who are completely new to blogging, hear the range of blogging tools and techniques out there, with some advice about which ones are most accessible to non-technical people, and how to get started. For people who recently started blogging, get answers to all those questions you would be embarrassed to ask. For people who are trying to get their companies, departments, organizations, families and communities to blog, hear about strategies for approaching non-technical blog-skeptics or the lazy and apathetic.
