Adams Hub to present class on how to build an audience for your blog

Special to NNBW

Adams Hub coworking member Jonas Ellison is a northern Nevada author whose blog, Higher Thoughts, boasts a following of over 50,000 subscribers around the world. He'll share some of the secrets of his success during the Adams Hub Lunchbox Learning series on Tuesday, June 20 from 12-1 p.m at the Adams Hub, located at 111 W. Proctor St. in Carson City.

A successful blog is a must for creatives, freelancers and "solopreneurs" who are positioning themselves as thought leaders and experts. In the online world, content is king, and the key to developing an audience. Compelling, original, high-quality content is vital to a powerful online presence and helps provide search engines with the "food" they love–which makes a blogger (and their brand) more visible.

Jonas advocates something he calls "authentic audience building", and spurns the "clickbait" tactics commonly used to snare subscribers. For his blog, he chose to take the high road, and the results have been spectacular.

Jonas uses and recommends the blogging platform Medium and in this fast-paced lunch session he'll share with you how he went from a WordPress blogger with a handful of followers to one of the Top Writers on this very influential blogging site. Medium was created by the founder of Twitter to enable everyone from world leaders to everyday folks to share their thoughts, analyses of world events, personal stories and more. As Medium says, they are "your daily news reimagined, straight from the people who are making and living it." Top Medium bloggers include world leaders and everyday folks alike.

This fun, free lunchtime class is a great introduction to using Medium to amplify your "voice" and build your brand.

Space is limited. Please RSVP to
