What are your recommended resources to improve search engine optimization, blogging, or public speaking?

These skills are intended to improve my ability to run a political action committee. I plan to take improv classes and join a local Toastmasters. I have found a lot of potential resources for blogging, but most are focused on generating income. I'm not opposed to income but prefer quality content to reach as many viewers as possible.

Hello,

I am a certified SEO professional and I am saying this so that somehow you can trust what I say.

One of the most important ranking factors is indeed, quality content. I have a guide on how to do SEO writing and I hope it will help.

But if you really want to be a certified SEO professional, I can recommend 2 online sources:

eMarketinginstitute and Semrush Academy, both are free.

To get started in understanding SEO, here is a link:

Feel free to message me, I will gladly help. :)

Regards,

There are many blog platforms but I am most familiar with LinkedIn and Wordpress. There may be others in the political space that I am not familiar with though. Toastmasters is probably the best known public speaking training platform. Good luck. You will have to utilize LinkedIn and other platforms to build your contact database.
