            "content": "<p>We often think of blog posts as being just a few paragraphs long, or being a &#8220;less serious&#8221; kind of writing. Not so! In this challenge, we&#8217;ll focus on writing longform pieces that are equally at home on your blog or in a magazine. Whether you have trouble organizing your thoughts in longer pieces of writing or simply want to challenge yourself as a blogger, <em>Writing\u00a0201: Beyond the Blog Post<\/em> can\u00a0help.<\/p>\n<h3>What is\u00a0<em>Writing 201: Beyond the Blog Post?<\/em><\/h3>\n<p><em>Writing 201: Beyond the Blog Post<\/em> is a four-week course to help those beginning to explore longform writing (or who are frustrated with their past attempts). Each week, we&#8217;ll focus on a different kind of piece, working our way from interviews &#8212; one of the easiest ways to get started with longer pieces &#8212; through instructional pieces and opinion pieces, ending with a personal essay.\u00a0It&#8217;s the product of\u00a0a range of writers and editors, including the founders and editors at\u00a0<em><a href=\"http:\/\/longreads.com\" target=\"_blank\">Longreads<\/a>\u00a0&#8211;\u00a0<\/em>folks who know a thing or two about high word counts.<\/p>\n<p>The course doesn&#8217;t have &#8220;assignments.&#8221; Publish a draft on Monday, a work-in-progress on Thursday, a new post on Saturday, or even commentary on the writing\u00a0process. Don&#8217;t publish at all, or\u00a0submit your piece to an online magazine. What you publish and how is up to you.<\/p>\n<blockquote class=\"alignleft\"><p>For those who&#8217;ve never worked with other writers before or are scared\u00a0to open your work up for feedback, don&#8217;t worry! We&#8217;re a friendly bunch, and we&#8217;ll offer tips on workshopping before getting started.<\/p><\/blockquote>\n<p>The most important part isn&#8217;t our advice, but the feedback you offer one\u00a0another. As with all Blogging U. courses, you&#8217;ll have a private community space, the\u00a0Commons, where we encourage you to workshop your writing. Workshopping is all about collaborative brainstorming: share excerpts from pieces you\u2019re working on or links to your published pieces, ask focused questions, and provide critique. You offer specific, constructive feedback to others, and they do the same for you.<\/p>\n<h3>The nuts and bolts<\/h3>\n<ul>\n<li><em>Writing 201: Beyond the Blog Post<\/em> begins on Monday,\u00a0December 1.<\/li>\n<li>New workshops are published at 12:00 AM GMT on Mondays. Each one helps you create\u00a0a new longform piece of writing &#8212; interview, instructional, opinion, and personal essay\/memoir. (And since you&#8217;ll get your final workshop on December 22, you can wrap up in time for the year-end holidays.)<\/li>\n<li>What &#8220;longform&#8221; means depends partly on you, but we use it to denote writing that&#8217;s 1500 words or more.<\/li>\n<li>There are no posting\u00a0requirements; the emphasis is on exploring new forms and workshopping your material. Publish your work when and where you&#8217;d like.<\/li>\n<li>Participants will have a private community site, the Commons, for workshopping, chatting, and connecting with others.\u00a0<em>Daily Post<\/em>\u00a0and <i>Longreads\u00a0<\/i>staff and WordPress.com Happiness Engineers will be on hand to answer questions and offer guidance.<\/li>\n<li>This course is completely free and open to bloggers and writers from any platform.<\/li>\n<\/ul>\n<p>Note: this is\u00a0<em>not<\/em> a course about blogging, it&#8217;s a focused writing workshop. If you&#8217;re interested in learning to blog or developing your existing blog, you&#8217;ll want to try our Blogging 101 and 201 courses &#8212; Blogging 101 will be back in January.<\/p>\n<h3>How to register<\/h3>\n<p>Want to join?

What are they?<\/h3>\n<p>\u201cEmoji\u201d is a Japanese term meaning \u201cpicture character.\u201d It\u2019s a standard for showing smileys and other little symbols inside text. But unlike traditional smileys that are made up of a sequence of letters like <code>:)<\/code>, every emoji has its own letter.<\/p>\n<h3 style=\"text-align:center;\">\ud83c\udf37 \ud83c\udf39 \ud83c\udf3a \ud83c\udf3b \ud83c\udf3c<\/h3>\n<p>Emoji blossomed on smartphones, where quickly picking out an emoji is often faster than typing out a long sentence.<\/p>\n<p>Today we\u2019re rolling out hundreds and hundreds of emoji across WordPress.com \u2014 872 to be exact.<\/p>\n<p><img class=\"aligncenter wp-image-29203 size-full\" src=\"https:\/\/en-blog.files.wordpress.com\/2014\/11\/emoji.png?w=620&#038;h=420\" alt=\"emoji\" width=\"620\" height=\"420\" \/><\/p>\n<p>Do they look familiar? That\u2019s because <a href=\"https:\/\/blog.twitter.com\/2014\/open-sourcing-twitter-emoji-for-everyone\">Twitter has graciously decided to open-source their entire set<\/a>, allowing anyone to use them. We\u2019re already busy preparing to add these to <a href=\"http:\/\/jetpack.me\">Jetpack<\/a>, so WordPress.org users can join in the fun too.<\/p>\n<p>Before today, emoji you inserted into your posts on the go wouldn\u2019t always show properly for all your visitors. While the nice little bunny (\ud83d\udc30) would show up fine when seen on your iPhone or Android, desktop visitors might just see a nondescript square:\u00a0<a href=\"https:\/\/en-blog.files.wordpress.com\/2014\/11\/square.png\"><img class=\"alignnone size-full wp-image-29204\" style=\"vertical-align:middle;\" src=\"https:\/\/en-blog.files.wordpress.com\/2014\/11\/square.png?w=12&#038;h=15\" alt=\"square\" width=\"12\" height=\"15\" \/><\/a><\/p>\n<p>Today&#8217;s launch means emoji will now show up properly on every device, no matter if it\u2019s a smartphone, desktop, or tablet. Thanks, Twitter, we appreciate it! \ud83d\udc97<\/p>\n<h3>How do I use them?<\/h3>\n<p>Inserting emoji in your posts is most easily done on a smartphone or tablet, though it varies how smartphones let you do it. Here are instructions for <a href=\"http:\/\/blog.getemoji.com\/emoji-keyboard-android\">Android<\/a> and <a href=\"http:\/\/blog.getemoji.com\/emoji-keyboard-iphone\">iOS<\/a>.<\/p>\n<p>If you\u2019re antsy to insert new emoji from the comfort of your desktop, here are a couple of tricks:<\/p>\n<ul>\n<li>Mac users on Mavericks or newer\u00a0can insert emoji by tapping <code>Command<\/code> + <code>Control<\/code> + <code>Space<\/code> while in a text editor.<\/li>\n<li>Windows users on version 8 or newer have a special touch keyboard with emoji support (<a href=\"http:\/\/blog.getemoji.com\/emoji-keyboard-windows\">see instructions with pictures<\/a>).<\/li>\n<li>Windows users on version 7 and below can copy\/paste emoji from <a href=\"http:\/\/www.iemoji.com\/emoji-cheat-sheet\/all\">this cheat sheet<\/a>.<\/li>\n<\/ul>\n<p>Have fun with the new emoji!<\/p>\n<h3 style=\"text-align:center;\">\ud83d\udc35 \ud83d\udc36 \ud83d\udc37 \ud83d\udc38 \ud83d\udc39<\/h3>\n",
