Blogging Your Way e-Course: Registration Open!

February 14, 2011

I have to shout it to the world — Leslie and I will soon teach the Blogging Your Way e-Course and registration JUST started today! I can’t wait to dig in again and hang out with students in an intimate, private space online where we can connect! Leslie and I can’t wait to run this course because we won’t be running this particular one again until next year — so if you want to take Blogging Your Way, this is THE opportunity to do it! We have lots to share in this class, including a video from Leslie who will tell you about herself a bit more in detail and I’ll do a video as well (along with 4 podcasts so you can download them) and much more so you are guaranteed a good time!

REGISTER HERE – Class space is limited!

Blogging Your Way: Outline

Friday, February 25th – You will receive your login by email so that you can get set up before class kicks off the following Monday. On this day, you’ll listen to two introductory podcasts from Leslie and I, watch a webcast explaining how to use the site and forum, and you’ll receive a course outline that you can download and print out along with a printable download for taking notes week by week.

Monday, February 28th – Class officially begins. Ideally, it’s great if you can log in once daily during the week but if you can only log in a few times a week that is also fine. You will need to dedicate 2-3 hours per week to this class if you want to get the most out of it. Some really dig in, network, and spend more time and some only hop on 30 minutes 3x a week. However, I suggest logging in 3-5x per week and spending quality time reading the materials and completing the fun and easy weekly homework assignment for best results.

Monday, March 28th – Class officially ends. You will, however, have access to the class materials and forum until April 11th. At that time, the site will be taken offline.

Hope to see you in class!

    Hi Holly,
    great to hear BYW starts again – I took the last one in September and loved it! It was really really useful and I am starting to implement all I have learned into my blog – albeit gradually – due to may day job and time constraints. Quick question: is this BYW different from the previous one in September? I just noticed you said you will not be running ‘this particular one’ again this year so I am curious. Is another course coming up? Best, Ebru from Istan-cool

    So when you say you won’t be running “this particular one” until next year does that mean your cooking up something new???

      @Michelle – Hello sweetie! To answer your question – it’s a big maybe, we are both involved in a lot of projects currently so we’re not sure exactly if and what it will be. But this class will not be offered again until next Winter — I know that for sure, because I have a lot of traveling and work to do for the rest of the year around my book and some other things — and since this class keeps me very busy and I need to stay in my office the entire time without traveling in order to do it – this is the only time slot that I can commit to right now.

    If you are on the fence about this course I have to say that it’s a NO brainer! YOU HAVE TO TAKE THIS COURSE! Holly and Leslie are brilliant and offer THE most comprehensive and most aesthetically concerned blogging course ever! They are both very passionate about sharing their incredible skills and do so in the most enjoyable, inspiring and joyful manner. It doesn’t feel like work as you learn to blog via Holly and Leslie cuz it’s so fun to interact with them and your blogging classmates! If it weren’t for this course I would still be just talking about having a blog. I have had my blog now for only 1 year and it’s going fantastic! Thanks to these fine gals I am well on my way-but still planning to re-take this course cuz I enjoyed it sooo much and would love a brush up and I really want to meet you! So go for it, sign up before the spots are all gone or you’ll be talking about that blog for another year til they offer it again. If you already have a blog- this course will make it 10x’s better!! Now go!

    Excited to get started. I’ve had a blog for years, but have just the last few months decided to really take it seriously and make it better. I’m looking forward to growing and learning.

    This is great! I took the last 2 BYW courses and they were great and really changed the way I blog and see blogs. I’m tempted to take this one, but how will it be different from the last two?

  • Reply Catherine February 15, 2011 at 2:36 am

    I’m really interested in joining the class (I bit my fingers for not doing it last fall) but I’ll be gone on vacation for 1 week in the middle of the class. Is this a major problem or do you think I will I be able to catch up once I get back? I really hope I’ll be able to hop on board! Thanks

    Definitely sign up for this class — I really believe it’s something that can fit with most everybody. It’s a lovely and thorough way to take a look at your own blogging and see what you need to do in order to set and reach your (not somebody else’s) goals.

    I have been revisiting my notes from the winter 2010 class and am re-learning all over again. Great stuff!

    I was waiting for this course! I need some inspiration for my blogging. I am looking forward to start!!

    Hi Holly,
    Am I doing something wrong? I’m trying to register but all the links take me to the information/registration about last September’s course. Help needed! This must be a sign that I do need this course!!

    Gotcha. I was hoping you were insinuating that you developed an uber awesome “how to take your blog to the next level” type course in addition to BYW.

    • Reply decor8 February 15, 2011 at 4:07 pm

      @Michelle – Stay tuned ;)

  • Reply Trish February 15, 2011 at 3:52 pm

    If you’re on the fence about taking the BYW course, DO IT! Holly and Leslie gave such amazing and detailed advice in the September course and we learned above and beyond what we ever expected! Perfect for the new blogger, like we were, or even better for those who already have a blog. Enjoy!

  • Reply Alice February 20, 2011 at 5:36 pm

    Oh, this course sounds really fun! I see that registration is open until the 27th and I’m hoping to be able to sign up by then. Just waiting on some $$$ to come in. The course sounds exactly what I’ve been looking for!

    I would love to do the BYW 2012 course. C ould you please let me know the exact dates in April, as we will be back from our vacation on the 12th of April. Honestly, I’ve waited for the past 2 years to join the BYW e-course. I am hoping to join it this year.
