Blog Boss e-course

February 21, 2013

Bloggers fasten your seat belts! I’m SO EXCITED to offer you a chance to get involved in an all-new e-course called BLOG BOSS that I’ll teach in March along with my blogging friends Irene from Bloesem and Stefanie from OhhhMhhhh. We can’t wait to work with students on becoming their very own blog boss because we each have made a business out of our passions and want to share everything – tips and insider’s ideas – openly and freely for four weeks of podcasts, videos, webcasts and written materials along with a private student-only forum where you can connect with us and other bloggers around the world. This class will be your big turning point, I’m sure!

I know that you are very familiar with my work if you are regulars here, but I must highlight the qualifications of my two co-teachers because they are super amazing and inspirational to me personally and I’m so happy they’ll be a BIG part of this class. But first, here are the topics we’re covering in the March class below which runs from March 1-29.

* BLOGGING FOR BUSINESS: From taxes to business etiquette and business planning for your blog
* HOW TO be the EDITOR IN CHIEF of your blog – Taking a magazine approach to content
* TEAMING UP with others and how this can work for YOU
* WORKING FROM HOME – pros and cons and how we do it
* HOW TO Analyze and Critique YOUR BLOG like a magazine staff does
* HOW NOT to be a copycat – WAYS to DEVELOP FRESH ideas that NO ONE ELSE has
* HOW TO deal with copycats, content theft, and other naughty people
* HOW TO FIND AN ANGLE (even if you are on the road with 100 bloggers): 5 story ideas that WORK
* PINTEREST tips and tricks
* BLOGGING TRENDS that we predict
* HOSTING 101: Meet ups, events, workshops and more!
* Overcoming BLOG ENVY
* Work Life Balance as a mom, wife, etc.
* The importance of PLANNING
* SMALL INVESTMENTS that can make a BIG difference
* STAYING TRUE to your style
* Learn how to FOCUS on what you CAN achieve
* BLOG Etiquette online and how to deal with people who have none!
* Going from Blogger to Book Author
* The Importance of your BIO
* WHAT EVERY Blog needs on their main page
* Blog Case Studies: Blogs That Rock and WHY

More details can be found here, but wow, doesn’t this look great? Even for me because I know I’ll learn new things from all of you and our co-teachers.

We nearly sold out after I announced this class on Facebook recently but I had to make sure I told you asap because I know so many of you who are blogging and in need of ideas and encouragement and whoa, the classes I teach online are always jam-packed with everything you need to fuel your blog and even your life in general. I’ve been teaching online since March 2009 long before e-learning became the trend, and to date I’ve taught over 5,000 students and have invited several lovely bloggers to teach alongside of me. This is the FIRST time though that I thought to create a course all about managing your blog and your life in general. Bloggers ALWAYS ask me how I do it all and if I ever sleep but I actually have a life outside of work and I sleep plenty! I realized that what you really want to know is how I organize my time so I can accomplish so many things at once. I will answer that and much, MUCH more in this class.

    This sounds so much fun and having done the last 2 BYW courses I would love to do it again but sadly I can’t afford it this time. You mentioned a few weeks ago on Facebook that you were going to offer a giveaway, did I miss this?

  • Reply Lena February 21, 2013 at 3:15 pm

    Can’t wait to be part of the class – again. And I am encouraging everyone to join. Even if you think your blog is too new or small, or you don’t know enough about all the technical stuff. Because that’s what I thought when I took the first byw course and it DID NOT MATTER! All you need is some passion for blogging. (But watch out, you’ll not want to do anything else but blog after that class…)

    This sounds wonderful – the topics, the teachers, the jump start is just what I need right now. I’ve always loved your classes, and I learn sooo much. When I have attended professional seminars and conferences I am lucky to take away a couple of useful snippets, but in your class – I take away TONS of information. I can’t wait!

  • Reply Anette@lebenslustiger February 21, 2013 at 6:35 pm

    I did sign up weeks ago when you announced it on FB but I am kind of worrying a bit ever since because after I paid, I was somehow redirected to the last e-course of yours. Well – I hope all is o.k. and I am signed up for the right one :) Really don’t want to miss this great course…?Anette

  • Reply Marilyn February 21, 2013 at 6:56 pm

    This will be my first time taking one of your courses and I am SO excited!

  • Reply Laura Gaskill February 21, 2013 at 8:48 pm

    Oh boy oh boy! I had no idea you had this cooking, and now I’m so excited! I’ve gotten soooo much out of your Blogging Your Way classes in the past, not just tips, but lasting friendships with others in the course. I have to review my budget first, but if I can I will definitely sign up for “Blog Boss” because I know in the long run it would really be worth it, and I feel so ready to kick my blogging up to the next level! xoxo Laura

    Oh, and how awesome is that to have Irene as a co-teacher! :)

    This sounds a blast!!!! I can’t wait for it to begin :-) I’m really looking forward to it.
    Thank you, Holly for putting these courses together and helping so many blogger achieving their goals <3

    Thanks for the chance to win Holly! This class would be priceless to me as I have been blogging sporadically for almost a year and I need to inject more life into my website, and myself. The areas I really need help with are blogging for business, how to use Pinterest to maximise exposure, balancing my indie jewellery & art biz with my life, family AND full-time day job, motivation & focus tips in times of procrastination and fear.

    It sounds really great! March is a bit complicated for me, so I hope you can repeat this e-course another time this year!

  • Reply Jennifer M February 22, 2013 at 8:30 am

    Mt goal for the new year is to get my blog up and going. But I don’t even know how to start to go about it really. Now if I could just win the course then I would be laughing :-$

    My first BYW course was a game changer for my blog and I have no doubt that this one will be too. Can’t wait.

  • Reply kittybaroque February 22, 2013 at 11:43 pm

    I took the last course & got a lot out of it. While I know there will be some crossover, I’m hoping to get more networking & action in this time around and having a Wordcamp (a weekend all about WordPress) so I might actually get to DO this time around….you never know……
    Look forward to meeting new friends.

    yay!! just enrolled!!!!

  • Reply Beverly Kohl February 23, 2013 at 4:49 pm

    Would definitely benefit from your awesome knowledge about blogging. I recently retired from my University job where I kept the department website updated and/or re-created for 12 years. Now I need to focus on my own blog and your courses are amazing!

  • Reply Sarah Seung February 23, 2013 at 6:52 pm

    Hi Holly,

    I just signed up for the Blog Boss course and I’m super excited!!!!

  • Reply Lauren @ girl and the abode February 24, 2013 at 2:13 am

    I am thrilled to get to join in on one of your courses again! I was enrolled in your last two, and feel hooked. I love learning tricks of the trade, but I really love the interactions with fellow bloggers. It is such a nice community to be a part of. Looking forward to March 1!

  • Reply Ute February 24, 2013 at 6:31 pm

    I registered for the course a couple of weeks ago and I hope, everything is okay, because I didn’t get a confirmation. But I hope this is the normal way.
    So I’am looking forward to the first of March.

Thanks for the push along and I look forward to the course starting very soon, can’t wait really!!!!!

    This is just what I need. I have problem with managing my time recently and few (I think) very good ideas for my blog but 24 hours in a day is never enough for me! I’m so looking forward to this course.
    Can’t wait till 1st of March Holly :)
    Take care,

  • Reply Regina February 25, 2014 at 11:42 pm

    So Holly, Is it closed. I m on your mailing list and never received a notice. :(
    That is my I’m crying, like a baby face.

  • Reply eve November 8, 2014 at 5:39 am

    Hi, I see the course is closed but I feel confident about taking a future course online after a quick browse on your page! I couldn’t seem to locate class prices (I didn’t get too much extra time to really dig yet) and also if you can answer a question when you have time, I wanted to just check if this course would be right for me or if there’s another you can recommend – here’s the thing, I’m stuck in an OCD cycle redesigning my blog, taking way too much time, with no real content up on this one yet. I’ve read enough tutorials, learned so much code, etc, that I know the next steps to take but I need to actually GET IT going! Thanks, hope to hear from you!
