Register For Blogging Your Way!

August 9, 2010

It’s time to enroll in the Blogging Your Way e-course that will return next month for a 4 week session with me and a lovely co-teacher Leslie Shewring! This is the first blogging e-course ever launched online (I rolled it out in March 2009) so I’m proud of the connections I’ve made and the wonderful information that I share with all of you along with the helpful tools and ideas that Leslie will provide.

Register For Blogging Your Way!

This course will teach you how to write from the heart, style interiors (I’ll share some ideas I learned on the road while working on my book) and Leslie will show you some favorite things to arrange and photograph for your blog to give it more personality. It will also cover photography and share tips and tricks, teach you how to set up an inexpensive home photo studio, flower arranging ideas, organizing your work area so you can be more creative, and so much more — like how to connect with your blog readers, using social media to network, how to earn extra income through blogging and how to edit images and add text and borders to them to make your blog more beautiful and interesting. When it comes to blogging, presentation is key to creating a blog that reflects your style so why not present your home and the things in it in the most authentic and personal way to your readers? This course will help you to learn how to do that. And so much more! Other topics include: Handling negativity online, how to overcome writer’s block, dealing with fear, taking risks…. lots of topics to use and enjoy.

We’ll have a lot to cover in 4 weeks but I’ll leave the class open at the end for an additional 4 weeks so that you can catch up if you need to. The forum will remain open during those additional 4 weeks so that you can network with fellow students. I will post a podcast weekly for 8 weeks, the final 4 weeks you will be invited to a special section in the forum where you can discuss the topic with other students.

This is a self-paced, password only e-course so only students can access all course materials, website and forum. We will not have group homework assignments in this class but will have weekly homework that you can do if you’d like — these exercises are meant to help you get the most out of this class but they are not difficult assignments — they are fun! Promise!

After class, you will be invited to join a private BYW email group that currently has students from past BYW courses so you can continue to connect there with fellow classmates from this course and also to meet and greet others who have taken BYW before you. The group is very active and fun to be a part of, so I’m sure that you will enjoy it!

Enrollment begins today and the course will cost $119 USD which gives you access to me daily, Leslie on Friday, a dedicated tech support person, all materials, weekly podcasts (over 10 total), a private forum for students only, and extra forum time to discuss additional podcasts, oh yes… and enrollment on the alum email list. If you have taken this class before you are welcome to enroll as we have lots of fresh material to share.

Date: September 3 (on the 3rd you will only receive materials to get you started, class officially kicks off after Labor Day weekend on Tuesday, September 7) and runs until October 4, 2010 with class/forum time extending until November 1, 2010.

Complete course outline here.

Leslie and I cannot wait to welcome you to our next class – you can SIGN UP HERE until the class is full and then registration will close.

    This is a great course. I have taken the fist edition of BYW and I am taking it again to give me a little kick and to enjoy the new features of the course. I really encourage blkoggers to take this course (and, in case you wonder, Holly is not paying me to say so – It is what I think!)

  • Reply netcat August 9, 2010 at 12:52 pm

    I have a couple blogs that have not been updated for quite a time, for reasons which, I am sure, could be overcome after having taken this course. Also, they’re not in English. Would I qualify?

  • Reply Nic @ Yardage Design August 9, 2010 at 1:32 pm

    I cannot recommend this course highly enough – it was amazing, as are Holly and Leslie (obviously!). Good luck everyone!

    Reading about the new BYW course brings back such fond, warm memories!! I wish that I could join in again Holly, but I’m traveling in Italy for most of that period… damn, maybe I can do both?
    For anyone else who might be interested though – I HIGHLY recommend it! Holly and Leslie are brilliant teachers, with oodles of quality information + wisdom to share! Trust me, you’ll never regret it :)

    I’d love to take this course. I am wondering, however, if the topics are applicable to a food blog or are they more design-focused? Thanks :)

    • Reply decor8 August 18, 2010 at 6:19 pm

      Jenious – Yes a food blogger could definitely benefit! We have all sorts of bloggers take this class, not just decorating/design peeps but also mommy bloggers, tech bloggers, scrapbook/crafty/artsy bloggers, personal coach bloggers, corporate bloggers, you name it!!
