New Blogger Bootcamp [Pro]

Everything you need to know in year 1 of starting a blog. Seriously.

Getting your site up & running…

…and looking good.

And finding the time to produce content.

And learn Pinterest.

And SEO.

And–well, everything else.

Blogging is hard! Especially the first year, when traffic and growth seems to come entirely too slow.

That’s why I created the New Blogger Bootcamp–a 9-lesson free email course that covers precisely what I believe new bloggers need to know in order to thrive in year 1.

This course takes the free course even further, offering video lectures and some additional bonus content not in the email course!

By the time you’re done with this bootcamp–you’ll be armed with the knowledge of what you need to focus on (and what you don’t), and have a clear strategy for growth in your head.

Truth be told, four months ago I didn't even know what a widget WAS. That could have been something related to the politically incorrect word midget for all I knew.

I still don't think of myself as a tech person per se, but now I think of myself as someone who can figure it out. If not I know I can find the help to do so. Probably in the Slack group. Probably from Teresa (shout out, you're all awesome Blogger U Slack group!)

Another thing is that now I'm hanging out with other bloggers and writers in the community and my mastermind group, (half of which is also in Blogger U) I've started to think of myself as a writer and blogger. Four months ago I wouldn't have said that. To become something, you first have to believe that you can and you are.

I'm a blogger!
