Social networking for Artists course

Mary Ward Centre, London
I'm in the middle of teaching a nine hour course called Social Networking for Artists at the Mary Ward Centre, London. This is a new course that I proposed myself at the beginning of the year. I think there is a gap in education for artists and crafters who have not grown up with computers. Often they know what they want to do but not how to get started. Thankfully the head of Art, Sharon Fuller, agreed with me!

On the course I am covering setting up a blog (using blogger because I think it is user-friendly for those that are not so computer literate), a facebook fan page and twitter account and what to do with them!

I started teaching it last week and I was really pleased to see that the class was full and that there are so many different areas of the arts and crafts represented in the group. I really enjoyed teaching this class and I'm looking forward to the next one.

So my question is this. What advice would you give artists and crafters just getting started in social media/social networking?
