Flagler College Enactus invites local moms to "Make Blogging Their Business"

ST. AUGUSTINE, FL (10/03/2014)(readMedia)-- Flagler College Enactus wants to help First Coast working moms make blogging their business at its interactive "Blogging Moms: 101" workshop on Friday Oct. 10 at 2 p.m.

Enactus has invited Michelle Olson-Rogers, popular blogger and founder of Modern Florida Mom, to teach local professionals and "Mompreneurs" how to start and build a blog for their business or family.

Whether it's a specialized blog for a company website or a personal one for family and friends, Olson-Rogers not only wants to share the basics of blogging with fellow moms, but also demonstrate how to optimize and monetize a website for the long run.

Launched earlier this year, Modern Florida Mom is a lifestyle network of websites for the stylish and modern Florida Mommy. Active blogs currently include South Florida's ModernBocaMom.com and North Florida's ModernStAugMom.com.

Michelle Olson-Rogers, a 2004 alumni of Flagler College, formerly served as an account director at a boutique public relations and social media agency in New York City. She decided to relocate to Boca Raton, Fla., with her husband after the birth of their first child. After six months in South Florida, Olson-Rogers decided to take control of her own career and launch a blogging-based business and Modern Florida Mom was born.

The workshop will take place in the Gamache-Koger Theater at Flagler College Student Center, 50 Sevilla St., St. Augustine. It is open to the public but seating is on a first-come, first-served basis; reservations are not required. For more information, call Donna DeLorenzo at 904-819-6255 or visit www.flagler.edu.

Flagler College is a private, four-year comprehensive college located in St. Augustine, Fla. The college offers 29 majors, 34 minors and two pre-professional programs - the largest being business administration, communication, psychology and education. Small by intent, Flagler College has an enrollment of about 2,500 students, as well as a satellite campus at Tallahassee Community College in Tallahassee, Fla. U.S. News & World Report and The Princeton Review regularly feature Flagler as a college that offers quality education at a relatively low cost. A Flagler education is less than half the cost of similar private colleges, and competitive with many state universities. A relatively young institution (founded in 1968), Flagler College is also noted for its historic beauty. The centerpiece of the campus is the former Hotel Ponce de Leon, a grand resort built in 1888 by Henry M. Flagler, an industrialist, railroad pioneer and co-founder of Standard Oil. The Ponce has been designated as a National Historic Landmark. For more on Flagler College, visit www.flagler.edu.
