Win Blog Boss e-course Seat

February 21, 2013

I thought I’d do a FLASH giveaway because I mentioned somewhere earlier this month that when I announced my upcoming e-course, Blog Boss, that I’d include a giveaway and I want to honor that! Irene already gave away one seat on her blog (the winner was Sonia Barrigas) and I found a winner for the mini contest I ran using Pinterest for my #bloghug hashtag party (Winner is: Jeanetta Gonzales), BUT I still want to giveaway THREE more seats! SO! Here goes!

Win Blog Boss e-course Seat

Enter to win one of three seats in the March 1-29, 2013 BLOG BOSS e-course. Enter to win by tweeting (or posting on Facebook) the following to help me spread the word, “Have You Heard About the new Blog Boss e-course!? http://decor8eclasses #blogboss”.

AND COMMENT below with a reason why you think BLOG BOSS would help you and your blog.

That’s it! If you do both of those things then you are officially entered and I’ll randomly choose a winner on February 25 (at noon GMT+1 time) and the THREE winners will be announced on decor8 on the same day. The winners will be notified by email. If you cannot take the class, you are not allowed to sell your spot or give it to another else outside of your family, so please do not register to win if you can’t take the class. These winning seats are ONLY for Blog Boss and cannot be transferred to future e-courses.

NOTE: If you’ve already registered and paid for Blog Boss, you will be reimbursed your tuition if you win this contest.

    Blog Boss will give me some perspective on my current blog and soem freshg opinions on how it is going.

    I think Blog Boss would help me as I need a serious kick up the blogging butt! I need to find my blogging mojo and I need to know what to do with it once I’ve found it!

  • Reply Sarah @ Just The Bee's Knees February 21, 2013 at 4:05 pm

    I’d love to win a seat in this course! I’m looking for tools and inspiration to learn how to grow my blog and take it to the next level while balancing family life at the same time, so this course would be perfect for me!

  • Reply Amy February 21, 2013 at 4:06 pm

    I have so much to learn — there are MANY reasons Blog Boss would help me; not just one! Among them are developing fresh ideas and better habits for working from home, and the importance of planning. I’m sure I would also greatly benefit from the case studies. I’m new-ish to blogging, but really enjoy it, and I’d like to do it well and do it right!

  • Reply Lauren February 21, 2013 at 4:06 pm

    I love blogging, but have no idea how I would make a business out of it, so I’d be thrilled to take a course to set me on the right track!

  • Reply Marlene February 21, 2013 at 4:07 pm

    I have a question about the e-course. I work full time and I would like to know if I can take the course at any time of the day (Ex. night time) or if it is offered at a fixed time of the day?

    • Reply decor8 February 21, 2013 at 4:35 pm

      @Marlene – Yes, it is a self-paced e-course meaning you can log in anytime day or night – new class content is made available each week on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Hope you’ll be a part of this class!

  • Reply Amy February 21, 2013 at 4:08 pm

    I would love to win a seat! My blog needs some encouragement.

    I would ABSOLUTELY LOVE to win a spot in the upcoming Blog Boss e-course. I’ve been waiting for months to register for this course, but recently my husband and I experience some financial changes, so there just isn’t room in the budget. As a new blogger I’d really love the encouragement and chance to connect with other bloggers. I’ve heard really great things about your past courses! If I don’t win this time, I’ll definitely take one in the future :)

  • Reply February 21, 2013 at 4:15 pm

    Recently, a few companies have been contacting me for reviews/giveaways and this tiny bit of blog “success” has my mind whirling! How can I take best take advantage of these opportunities and grow my blog even more so that I’m getting noticed by even more people/companies/readers–all while staying true to myself and my blog’s mission? These are the questions that are spinning around in my head and I think the Blog Boss e-course would help me sort all this out!! Thanks for the opportunity! :)

    I am an avid follower of your blog and would like to win a seat on your course because I am looking for a career change and would use this as an opportunity to create a blog to use as a potential platform for a new business adventure in baby/childrenswear.

  • Reply Lisa February 21, 2013 at 4:21 pm

    Dear Holly,

    BLOG BOSS would give me the perfect opportunity to upgrade my little blog to another level: more mature design, better readability, easier handling – I started the blog a year ago and didn’t really know how to blog nor to design a lovely layout around my content – and I still don’t.

    I started writing about my life as a student in the beautiful city of Hamburg a year ago and loved it. Now that I moved to Braunschweig, I want to give it a new twist, a new look and fresher content.

    Your blog gives me so much inspiration! My mind is full of great ideas how to recreate my blog, but I’m lacking technical knowledge and ways to implement my ideas. I feel like this e-course could be my chance to close these knowledge-gaps and improve, improve, improve! :)


  • Reply Andjela February 21, 2013 at 4:21 pm

    Hi dear,

    I’ve posted it on my Twitter account:
    I write blog on and I have a wish to make it very successful for which your course could help me. Unfortunately, there is no PayPal for Serbia yet, so I am not able to enroll it.
    I would be very greatfull if I were on of the winners.

    Best regards from Serbia,

    I believe that this is right time to do this… this is the year I become a mom, that I’ll try to move from one place to another with a baby in my arms and at the same time fuel my blog and get to be my own boss as a stay-at-home-working-mom. So Blog Boss is oh so perfect and being taught by such remarkable women… OMG! Superb!
    I truly admire your work Holly and I’m seriously considering taking this e-course!

  • Reply Courtney February 21, 2013 at 4:31 pm

    Ohh, this looks like a wonderful opportunity. I’ve been playing around with my blog, but I’m finally getting clear on what I want to focus on. I would like it to be of use to people though, and the advice on approaching it as a magazine editor, with a critical eye, would be immensely helpful.

  • Reply Nadine February 21, 2013 at 4:33 pm

    Oooooh Holly,
    what a stunning give away!!! I´d be very pleased if I could take part in your e-course…
    My blog is in the snooze-mode for a while now – and it even hasn´t really started before. I think my main problem is the time – there are many things I´d like to join, but I don´t really know how to manage it…maybe the keyword is “organization”!? ;) At the same time my blog needs a refreshing – a new and personal style. I´m kinda blocked about this and I´d reeeaally LOVE to get some fresh input from the very top. So I hope that there´s a little chance for me so that I can learn from you and your wonderful co-authors.
    Sending you the warmest wishes

    PS: Oh, and I forgot: some tips on how I could use the blog for my little business would also be enriching for me!

I am at a point in my life where I am trying things out and experimenting and blogging is something I would love to continue. I know I want to launch a business in the fashion field and one step on this path is blogging. I want to get a feel of the e-fashion world through blogging and then make my way towards my goals. I think this e-course would certainly help me out a lot!

    I need structure. While I blog, I feel like my posts are inconsistent and that my readers do not know what to expect from day to day. I also sometimes run out of content. I desperately need help shaping up content and promoting my blog. I would also like to start having a dialogue on my blog. I will talk to people and they tell me they read about it on my blog, but how do I get them to engage on line. Thanks so much for this opportunity. I would be extremely grateful for the Blog Boss class.

    Hi Holly,

    I’ve been maintaining a personal blog for the past seven years and blogging for a popular beauty website for five, but although I’m an early adopter with good technical skills I feel like my content has stagnated of late.

    I think Blog Boss would help me freshen my ideas for and implementation of content, as well as be a better editor. I’m interested in critiquing and improving my blog design and content without being self-critical, something I currently find difficult! I’d hope that Blog Boss would also give me the confidence to implement some of my ideas around collaborations and meet-ups – I’m much too eager to stay in my comfort zone and hide behind the monitor.

    Thanks for the giveaway, it’s a lovely idea :)

    Just started a new blog, and I would LOVE to learn more about focusing its content, creating a brand and style, finding followers, and contacting advertisers. As an avid blog reader, I notice that there are certain circles of blogs that focus on similar topics and often link to one another. I am a HUGE fan of style blogs and design blogs, but I would like to focus on my life and family. I’d like to incorporate the two ideas of design and family into my blog, and I hope that Blogboss will help show me how to do this!

    Like Holly, I worked in the corporate world until I finally came to terms with the fact that what I really wanted was to be a writer. So I left my job & New York City a year ago, joined my significant other on a farm in Indiana and began blogging about the city to country transition. I have been dying to take a BYW course and now I have enough experience under my belt to learn the ropes of what it takes to blog on more professional level. Blog success case studies and making the transition from blogger to book author would be especially helpful.

My blog is almost one year old and I know this class would help me so much with increasing my exposure and improving my blog. Pick me!!

    Thanks so much for this giveaway! I’d love to win a place on Blog Boss because I’ve been unsure of what direction I want to take with my blog for so long and just recently I’ve decided to make a commitment to it, give it proper time in my day and do my best to make it a worthwhile, fun and interesting read. I know that Blog Boss would help me to make this a reality! I missed out on Blogging Your Way which I really wanted to take so would love so much to win a place on Blog Boss. I have everything crossed… :)

    Found this post while looking for some help with my Frugal DIY blog. Shared on Twitter so I made sure I had a spot – looks like an awesome course! Even if I don’t win, I’m going to have to definitely mention this to my husband and convince him I need to do it. :)

  • Reply Elana Kilkenny February 21, 2013 at 7:39 pm

    Hi Holly, I love the synchronicity of reading about your generous giveaway concerning your upcoming Blog Boss e-class as I have been literally looking for such a course for a few months now and have loved your blogged for a long time. I am an Intuitive Counselor and Feng Shui Designer with a distinctively modern design orientation. I am also a mother to two young children and I am definitely in need of some guidance on how to create a blog that truly inspires, reflects the work that I do and can become a business of its own. I have been fascinated by how amazingly creative people like you and Oh Joy! have turned their passion into a successful business that has many branches of creative and entrepreneurial collaboration. While I feel my Pinterest page reflects me, I do not feel that my blog does as of yet. Between my work with clients and time with my children I don’t have a lot of time to sort through all the information out there on how to truly create the blog that I envision and would be so honored and blessed to learn from the masters of this field as I know that with these tools I could create a blog that truly supports and inspires others as well as nourishes me creatively and grows my business authentically. I would be most grateful to win a spot in your amazing e-course. With gratitude, Elana Kilkenny

    I think Blog Boss will help me get my blog and business going. I’ve started freelance webdesigning just a few months ago, and decided to start a blog in addition to my portfolio but all the topics I come up with, I just feel like it’s all been said before, so I’d love to find out how to develop fresh ideas or write about those topics in a unique way.

    I’ve been in a rut of unemployment since moving to a new state for my husband’s job, and have felt very sour about it until recently. I am a natural writer and photographer and I finally started to think it might be ok to try focusing on those interests instead of gloomily churning out new job applications every day. I think blogging could fuel my creative happiness and possibly take me in a new direction career wise. I would love to be a part of your course, thank you for the opportunity to win a seat!

BUT because of my privacy settings I can not post the message. I searched like hell, but I can’t find what setting I have to change in order to get the message posted. So here I am: the social media nitwit you are looking for. Who really needs a good Blogger e-course! I am going to post your e-course on my blog and share it through Facebook and hope this will work.

    While it’s not always possible to explore artistic avenues at work, I’ve been focusing on trying to expand my personal creativity off hours. While it’s fun to pursue artistic passions at home, it can get a little lonely, which is why I started a blog–to connect with others who share the same interests. Now that it’s started, I’m unsure of the next steps to take. The Blog Boss course would get me on the right track.

    Taking the very first Blogging Your Way e-course you offered way back in ’09 really helped me realize how exciting, creative, and energizing blogging can be – and also gave me the extra courage I was looking for to dive in and pursue my passions. Since then I’ve been able to use my blog as a platform to launch the beginnings of a freelance writing career. But somehow along the way, as I have gotten busier and busier working for others (which is GREAT, I am not complaining!) I’ve been letting my blog languish a bit. I feel SO ready to take my blog to the next level as a business and kick some butt – and I know you are just the lady to inspire me to make that happen! xoxo Laura

    Blogboss is exactly the right level for bloggers like me who have been at it religiously for years. We’ve got through the initial set up and making posting a regular thing. My blog is two years old and is doing really well (I think? How do you really know if you are doing well? Stats? Commentators? Hits per month? – I’m going with that as that’s my highest!)

    But what now? What’s the next step?

    I’m not sure how to get to the next level. I know that it’s no good saying that you need to go and do x,y,z. You have to actually go and do it. All I know is I have the determination and the enthusiasm to make it bigger and better in 2013 and BlogBoss will answer all the questions for the next step. Onwards and upwards I say.

    I’d absolutely love to take part in Blog Boss! At the beginning of this year my boyfriend and I began looking for our first home together, and decided to blog our little interior adventure as we’re both really into interiors (there are definitely pros and cons to this… :) haha!) and thought it’d be great to share the inspiration we find along the way as there really are so many great sources of inspiration and beautiful products out there.

    Since starting the blog, which we do part-time, i’ve found something i really really enjoy doing – from discussing trends with others on twitter and blog posts, reading other people’s inspiration (and noseying into their homes too of course!), and learning more each day about everything from antique furniture to crafts!

    As young as the blog is, i’ve discovered a new passion and I’d now like to to learn how i can develop my own style within the blog, plan better within the times i have and discover the potential!

    Some great feedback on the other courses – so sounds like an excellent course with some really inspiring teachers!

I’d keep on blogging even if I had one reader forever, but it would be great to have some guidance on how to properly transmit everything you need to others and how to have the chance to network with creative people like yourself. Sometimes being creative means you have 10 ideas you tag as super duper great in your head, but the next days they fade of because you can’t do everything by yourself and within the time you like. It would be great to participate in your e-course Holly :)

    Although I’m familiar with those basic, technical things, I think I still have to go a long way to get my blog into the direction that I want it to be. I’d like to become my blog more professionell and to develop my very own voice within the world of bloggers. I know that there is so much undiscovered creativity inside me. Creativity which is still sleeping.

    I’d love to take part in your e-course to awaken this creativity. To show myself by my own topics, by the way I’m writing and by the direction I push by blog into. And I think that I can learn a lot by experienced and popular bloggers that have gone this way I still have to go.

    HI Holly! I’ve been blogging fairly regularly since 2007. When I had a website set up last year I had my blog integrated into the new website so its all nice and seamless. I share my artwork, the process, and little snippets of my life. But I never have a large readership, and those that do read don’t comment or interact the way I would really love. My artwork is my passion but I do feel that blogging more effectively could really help me connect with my client as well as other artists. Thank you!! PS I met you in Philly when you were touring with Decorate-loved having that opportunity. xo

    I was recently just laid off and now am an unemployed 24 year old with so many ideas and no where to put them. I craft, I teach yoga, I garden, I draw pictures, and I bake killer cookies. I feel like the universe is ready for me to channel my creative energy into a blog, but I don’t know where to begin. Help!

    I’ve been apart of your Blogging your Way ecourse and loved, and found all the information so helpful. Blogging is the hobby that I love the most, and would love to find a way to turn it into something that truly inspires me and others. I want to know how to blog better.

  • Reply Daniela February 22, 2013 at 2:15 am

    I started blogging about six months ago with the goal of turning it into an additional income stream and perhaps eventually into a full time gig, but I’m struggling with creating unique content and how to use my time wisely. Being a fan of your blog, who better else to learn from, right! This e-course might be just what I need to get on the road to being a better blogger.

    I love my blog and it’s starting to get a lot more page views, I really feel like I could do with some help and inspiration to take it up a notch so this course would be perfect for me.

    How people make money online, specifically through blogging absolutely fascinates me and I’d like to one day take that leap into the unknown but I honestly don’t really know where to start. I would love to win a place to learn from you and the other amazing teachers lined up to deliver the course. It sounds amazing!

    I want to build and develop an opportunity that will allow me to work for myself instead of working for the man (literally). I LOVE DIY and blogging, and want to share that creativity with others. Learning about how to design this outlet for my creativity will help me get my butt in gear. Can’t wait! Fingers crossed.

    Hi Holly,

    As a newbie startup I think the Blog Boss course would help me out so much because although i read blogs daily, I’m a new to actually blogging. I had my own retail boutique store back in the early 2000’s, but that was of course before blogging took off. i want to ensure that my second go round in the land of boutique’s is much more fierce!! I’m hoping an entry to your course will help me along with this……

    Writing and taking photos are two things that make my heart sing, I blog because I love to, although I do have ambition. I see other bloggers who have forged a career through their blogs; writing books, collaborating with other creatives, and can’t help but applaud.

    I’ve hit a wall, I could desperately use the expertise and advice to help me figure out what I need to work on and aim for next.

  • Reply Andrea February 22, 2013 at 3:21 am

    Hello Holly,
    I have already registered for the course and can’t wait to begin. I have been spending quite a bit on my blog education over the last few months. Getting a little financial help would be fantastic, so consider this my official entry in your contest. I am a designer of children’s spaces. I have been in this business for 16 years in NY, LA and now San Francisco. After completing over 1200 spaces, I think Im ready to hand out some tips to the world. My studio walls are packed with editorial calendar plans. And my computer’s had drive had to dumped to an additional terabyte drive to fit all of my photos. I am beyond anxious to hear every tip you have to offer. My “official” launch will be April, 20th, my birthday. Thanks for the opportunity.

    I started blogging at a time when I felt work was consuming most of my life and I was in dire need of a creative outlet. I was losing touch with the simple in things in life that used to make me happy.

    My blog now serves as a chronicles of the things that give me inspiration and make me happy– most of those things DIY projects. I feel however, that there is so much more to learn in terms of improving my blog and how I present the things I blog about and more importantly, how I could inspire other people to appreciate the little things in life through my blog.

  • Reply Melissa Jaine February 22, 2013 at 6:27 am

    Ah, Holly, you may know I’ve been spinning around in circles seeking and searching for my place in blogland. I really, really, really believe I am now *this* close (thumb and first finger almost touching!), and I am so excited and happy with the work I want, and am just starting, to create.

    I have no doubt that Blog Boss will fill that gap between my finger and thumb and set me solidly on the road to where I want my blog & creative life to be – and then some! :) Thank you.

    I just started a decoratingr business in my African country and one of my marketing strategies is to set up a blog both to create an awareness for the decorating industry as well as increase sales and services for the array of brands I would be selling. Even though the blogging business has become very popular, it is obvious that a lot of bloggers would rather not take a risk and so everybody seem to be blogging on what I would call a “Safe Perimeter” and rather not be distinct nor different. I want to have a first hand knowledge of the Blogging business and use the blog to promote my business in a fresh and creative way that would generate interest and increase my business bottom line. This E-Course is for me.

I am not very good at it because I can’t/don’t have enough time to dedicate to it. Sometimes I wish I could, as I love to communicate through it. Lately I have been thinking on how could I make it easier for me in terms of time and uploading the content.

    Oh, how I would love to win a seat to Blog Boss! I was hoping you would do a giveaway. I am unemployed, and have been since October. I was hoping that being let go would give me this super great opportunity to do something *I* wanted to do in live – to create something that was just mine, and that I could put my whole heart into. Unfortunately, the need to pay bills came first, and I’ve spent 5 months trying to find work instead of delving into my own business. I have wanted to start a blog for YEARS, but something stops me. I just feel so intimidated! I just feel so BEHIND – everyone seems to be in the know except me. I don’t know where to start, and while I do know how to get a blog up and going, I want to learn how to take it to the next level, making ME the BOSS of my own career, my own life. I would desperately love to win a seat because not only do I need the guidance and have the desire to learn, but winning a seat would also save me $129, which right now is a lot of money to me and my (still) unemployed state! Thank you so much for the chance to win!

There’s so much to learn… ! I’d love to get this chance :)

    I’ve taken extended learning classes to further my social media knowledge and experience. The courses I’ve taken covered very little on blogging and I would love to learn more! Especially since businesses utilize blogs to optimize their exposure. I just want to understand it more!

    i have so many ideas and blessings that i want to share with those interested in the topics i blog about. but i am a big picture person and embarking anew on creating my blog. i’ve begun, but as a big picture person, i would like help to understand the big picture so that i can avoid wasted time and mistakes in structuring things poorly. thus, i’d love to take this course! perfect timing.

    Hi Holly
    I did your last course and benefited a huge amount – both personally and with regards to my blog … I was inspired in soo many more ways than I expected. I am still working towards living my best life but I am struggling to find work balance. I am totally inspired by you and all that you accomplish.
    I would LOVE to win a seat in this next Blog Boss e-course.

    Getting a seat in Blog Boss will open a new perspective on how to tackle this technological advancing world. Since disovering blogs last summer, I’ve explored all kinds of blogs and examined all their different ways of approach in sharing info with the world, but keeping it true to themselves. It is all very inspiring. I’ve been stuck on a name for mine, but I think I almost have it done. With a seat with Blog Boss it will help affirm some decisions in this blooming world.

    since I started blogging in 2006, I always visited Decor8 to see the latest development in blog design. I deem Holly as one of the best bloggers not only for her constant quality content and creativity, but also because she is around since so long, knows the blog land by heart, and even blogged her way to book author.

    After discovering Steffi and Thorsten via their blogs, I am convinced that this e course can give me new inspiration for my six year old blog.

    And last but not least, my dear friend, who I met via my blog, has signed up as well! Would love to join the group!!

    My blog focuses on the restoration of physical environments and objects to make them beautiful again. It is intended to capture an essence of a beauty lost to time, decay and neglect. I currently do a lot of thrifty crafting, and love making things from any material. I sew, knit, crochet, quilt, DIY and I currently have a penchant for organising with cereal boxes! I’m also on a journey to a simpler life and write about decluttering and the various challenges related to that. My blog is currently small, and the blog boss course would help me design an engaging platform for my readers, and pick the right content to write about. I would love to take part to see if there is potential to make my blog into a business idea.

    Hello Holly,

    I’m sure your head is swimming from reading all these awesome entries by now so I’ll try to keep my entry short and sweet.

    My blog Violently Happy is 5 years old. I cover everything from motherhood, home design, shopping, film/music and food, you know most of the junk millions of bloggers cover. My blog is like that nerdy girl who always has her hair in a ponytail and wears thick glasses. She needs a mini makeover by the popular girls in school badly. She’s never kissed a guy and desperately wants to go prom. She’s really sweet and funny and has a rad sense of style but no one notices her at the school dance because she seems like a wallflower. She’s totally a bad ass underneath it all.

    I’d love the opportunity to learn how to sharpen my content skills, network with amazing people and pick up some tech stuff to align my wonky photos. I hope you pick Violently Happy, she’s tired of spending her Friday nights at home. Plus my birthday is in March so that would be stellar!

Now I’m trying to focus more on writing about brooches. Since I also have a vintage brooch shop. And i just love all the stories behind those pins.

    Hi Holly,
    What a great giveaway! I would love to win a seat on the blog boss e course as I need to invest some time in thinking seriously about my blog and how to take it to the next level as it were. I think that this course would be a great opportunity for me to do that as well as providing the opportunity to learn from other bloggers.
    Fingers crossed!

    Would love to win because I finally got the website I wanted – now I need to get my blog polished! Would love to learn from you (you are awesome) and the others and connect to other like-minded women!
    Your course sounds GRAND!

    Dear Holly,

    I have wanted to do one of your courses for a long time now but haven’t yet been able to financially justify it ( I have a toddler and just bought a house so money is tight). I love how you describe that your courses help bloggers use their blog as ‘a catalyst to create their best life’ – that is completely how I view blogging. It inspires me to make and do the things I want to do! It teaches me to celebrate the little things and reflect on ALL things. I am just so excited about how much more I could learn from you and how I can put this to practice in not only improving my blog but consequently my life!

    So glad I found this, it’s wonderful.

    I think Blog Boss would take me to the next level of blogging. It would help me see that I can make a living doing & sharing what I love. I want to be inspired & taught by the bloggers I have been following for years. I want to find the perfect balance of how personal to get with the blog.

    I have been freelancing for 3 years and off & on blogging and know from my mini-blog break that blogging is 100% something that I need to be doing. It is such a great way to share my passion with the world and I want to learn from the masters how best to do it.

    Thanks so much for this opportunity! xx – Patti

    Hi Holly! I’m a blogger in high school who would love to be part of the Blog Boss course so that I can learn to interact with older bloggers and be a part of their community, as well as improve my own blog.

  • Reply Ada February 25, 2013 at 4:49 am

    This is a fantastic giveaway!! I would love to win because I’m at that stage where I’m invested in my blog, I’m constantly trying to think of ways to make it better, post more and wanting it to become a more important part of my day to day life. This course would help me get a first hand account from successful bloggers about how to really make my blog my own – find my voice, putting myself into it to make it uniquely mine. And get a grasp of what it really means to become more than just another name in the blogosphere.

    How would Blog Boss help me? Can I count the ways? There are SO many! I’m just starting out, and like many, juggling a full time job with my new personal endeavor – so I want to make every key stroke, every moment, every post count, while also creating a blog that will entertain, serve, and enrich readers. Blog Boss sounds like the perfect course to hone my skills on purposeful blogging related to my new business! It goes beyond generating an interesting post, and will help me understand the ins and outs of the blog business. I’m looking forward to the class!

    I’ve been writing my blog for almost 2 years but would love to try and focus the content a little more and encourage more engagement with my readers. This course sounds exactly what I’m looking for and I would love to win a place.

  • Reply Jeanne February 25, 2013 at 10:08 am

    Hello Holly!
    I would be more than thrilled to win a spot on your Blog Boss course. Being a blogging newbie, as my blog is little over a month old, I know I have a lot to learn. The number of readers has been rising steadily – readers continue to return and I add new readers daily. My friends who have seen my “share” posts on Facebook have commented on how much they enjoy reading what I have to write, and I have no shortage of things to write about, posting on average about 4 times a week while maintaining a full time job (and my posts are pretty meaty). I will be making the transition from fashion design to interior design in 2 weeks and will be able to spend more time on my blog then, but I would like to take my blog to the next level and I am hoping that your course will help me do so. I know there is a LOT to learn – the more knowledge I have, the better for me… and my readers! Cheers to you and all that you have done for the blogging community!


  • Reply Albertine February 25, 2013 at 10:18 am

    everything is ready: basic knowledge of blogging, graphic design skills from my studies of industrial design, pictures, topics, time, lots of ideas and love. But somehow I did not manage to get really started with blogging yet. So many questions keep picking my mind. This course would just be the big kick I so hardly need and the answer to a lot of my questions!

    crossing my fingers in Berlin!

    I just moved to India a few days ago and have been blogging about my adventures as an expat/artist. It’s been amazing to see such a positive response already but I’d love to learn even more about getting my story out there!

    Dear Holly, I took the BYW course in 2010 when I started blogging and I loved it, so inspiring! So now two years down the road of blogging is definitely the perfect timing for the blog boss course! :) And I love Steffi and Irene and their blogs so it would be so great to get one of the three seats! xoxo, Melanie

I love sausage dogs and hot chocolate. I love training to be a florist and dreaming of a world covered in jewel like anemones.

    At 33 I wrote a blog for several years about life after cancer and a bone marrow transplant. It was an open truthful account of my life filled with love, opportunity and inspiration. I wanted to give others who were young with cancer, hope. The blog was very successful but now I want to move away from my survivor-hood and get back to the real me.

    I’m an artist & designer. I recently worked for a year designing artwork to be printed on fashion and home linens out of Victoria B.C. Canada (Vancouver Island). I would like to start a business sharing tips of the industry as well as promoting my design work. I want to use my social media skills to get internet shy artists online. We have such a plethora of skilled artists whom could benefit greatly from an online presence.

    I would be overjoyed if I could gain a space for the course. ?
