So save the date: Thursday, November 12, from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM, Rising Tide is getting its first beginning blogging class on at the Bridge Lounge, located at 1201 Magazine Street.

We will be there to answer all your questions and to set you up right then and there with your own blog. Laptops are welcome. Registration is free.
So tell us at the Rising Tide blog if you're coming, ask us some questions or tell us what you'd like to know in the comments, and mark your calendars. It is on.
