I first started a blog in January 2016, finally a resolution that was useful!
I’ve been blogging since and think I’ve made as many mistakes as anyone.
When I first started blogging it was more of a hobby than anything serious. I enjoyed writing about my personal finance journey and wanted to help others.
But with a full-time job and several other commitments outside of work I didn’t blog consistently. But last month I decided to quit my six-figure job to blog full-time and become a self-employed solopreneur.
The past month I’ve done nothing but learn about blogging, understanding SEO, Pinterest, content marketing, and web design. I realized how overwhelming blogging can actually be.
This was initially one of the reasons it took me so long to start a blog.
To help everyone who wants to start a blog, I’ve created a free course to get started! The course is designed to help people get started blogging and become a great blogger.
Why Did I Create a Free Course?
I created this free course for several reasons. The biggest reason is that I want to eliminate a majority of the roadblocks that stop people from starting a blog. I dragged my feet for months before I actually got started.
I’ve heard so many excuses people use about why they never started their website or blog:
- “It seems to hard.”
- “I don’t know anything about blogging.”
- “I’m not a graphic designer”
- “No one will read it anyways what’s the point.”
- “I don’t have the time to start a blog.”
And the list goes on. People think blogging is impossible to setup, have no technical experience, and not sure it won’t be a failure.
These were all the reasons I drug my feet for a year before actually getting started. But, much to my surprise starting a blog isn’t as hard as I thought it would be.
Yes, some aspects may be hard, the beginning of anything is always the hardest. Whether you take up a new sport, a new job, or try to learn skills there is always a learning curve!
Nothing is different with blogging. But, you have to try, learn from your mistakes and repeat until you’re successful.
My free course will help you during the beginning and hardest moments of starting a blog.
What Is Included
I’ve designed the course to help people start a blog from the absolute beginning.
A great blog has the potential to change so many lives. It can definitely change the author’s life as you get to share your wisdom, knowledge, and experience with readers around the world. It also can potentially change the life of anyone who reads your site.
Instead of getting too stressed when you start out to take my free course to learn the basics of blogging.
Here’s what I will cover:
Module 1: Setup and Design Your Blog
Purchasing your domain and installing WordPress is the most “technical” aspect of blogging. Once you have this setup you’ll be able to start creating your website, publishing blog posts and sharing with the world.
I’ll show you how to do this in less than ten minutes and streamline the process. You’ll also learn how to install a theme and add the plugins and widgets necessary for your blogging success.
Module 2: Seven Steps To Being a Pro Blogger
As I mentioned, I’ve made nearly every mistake you can when it comes to blogging. But, my experience has helped me understand what it takes to be a great blogger.
I’ll show you the best practices big time bloggers use, how to optimize and create images for your site, and how to keep everything organized.
Module 3: Master Social Media
Once you create your blog posts and website you’ll need to use social media to share with the world. I’ll cover the big three social media platforms to help you understand how to use each one for more traffic each month.
You’ll learn how to create your Facebook business page, set up a Twitter account, and start using Pinterest.
Module 4: Create an Email List
After you have created great content and started sharing on social media you’ll need to start an email list. This will make sure your fans can receive each new post straight to their inbox.
I’ll discuss all the different platforms (free and paid) you can use to get started.
Module 5: Blogging Resources
There are so many blogging resources it can be overwhelming for new bloggers. This module will show you the top blogging resources to further understand WordPress, SEO, and social media.
