Back in December, I took the plunge and bought a domain and server. Barefoot Colorado quickly became a place that I poured all of my energy and free time into. It was stressful, draining and not what blogging should be. Why the heck was no one reading it? Why did I only have 20 followers on Twitter? WTF. I THOUGHT THIS WAS SUPPOSED TO BE FUN, was a common conversation I often had with myself.
I didn’t have any direction for my blog at the time. I wasn’t sure what my focus was– sure, I knew I wanted to blog about healthy living, but my thoughts were ALL OVER the place. I now know that these worries are common for beginner bloggers, but when you are in that situation, it feels like you are talking to a brick wall.
In walks blog school.
Yes, it was a little pricey. But after some back and forth, I took the plunge and enrolled in the blog school.
It was the best decision I could have ever made for my blog.
Since beginning the program, I have increased my readership, engagement, and brand work. Back when I was so frustrated, I would have never thought that in six short months I would have worked with brands such as Chobani, PRO performance, CLIF, Kotex and others. I would have never though that I would get regular comments on my blog. I never could have guessed the friendships, interactions and support that have come from connecting with other bloggers.
This blog school contains 6 modules including:
- Blog Design 101
- Create Epic Content
- Get Traffic, Build Community
- Social Media Marketing: Facebook, Twitter & Pinterest
- Media, Money & Income Streams
Each module contains a lesson, worksheets to complete and plans to implement right away during your blog. The modules are not incredibly time consuming, but trust me when I say they are 100% effective. I have learned SO much throughout the program, and I’m only half way done!
Rita shares her favorite plug-ins, tools and advice to help to not only get people to your blog, but keep them there as well.
- Membership to Blog School’s Private Facebook Group Connect & network with like minded bloggers.
- Blogging Productivity Because nothing changes if you don’t get @#$% done!
- Five Minute WordPress Set up your own WordPress site in, you guessed it 5 minutes!
- WordPress How To Videos Take your blog further by learning to update and configure it yourself.
**In addition to all of this, you also get a lifetime membership to the school complete with 24/7 access. That’s right, you can go back to the modules even AFTER the program is over. **
Oh, and did I mention Rita is a rockstar at answering emails? I’ve sent her a handful of emails utterly stressing about my blog and she has been a savior when it comes to helping me learn to code and design my blog. This girl is the real deal.
The blog school costs $275, which you can pay all at once, or in 4 monthly payments of $89.
Yes guys, I know that when your blog isn’t earning any income, it can be a difficult decision to spend $275 on a blogging program. In my opinion, however, I believe that the blog school benefits by far outweighs the cost.
Registration starts August 13th and ends on September 9th.
