Blog Boss: Blogging + Social Media Online e-course

September 10, 2014

I’m seriously SO happy that I’m back in the saddle after having a baby and ready to rock and roll my next e-course, Blog Boss! If you took the last one then this is NOT the same content and if you’ve never taken this course, then you are in for SUCH a treat. I’m covering the best and most timely blogger topics trending at the moment and I can’t wait to tell you who my co-teacher/s will be. This will be a totally bang-up awesome class, I’m buzzing with pride because I am totally feeling this class like crazy and know that whoever takes it WILL walk away smarter, happier, knowing what you want to do with your blog and you will definitely feel invigorated and ready to get to work on making your blog and social media time spent online the best and most productive it’s ever been.

Blog Boss: Blogging + Social Media Online e-course

All of my insider tips and blogging/social media secrets, the secrets of my co-teachers and how they got their mojo AND 24/7 access to so many great students that you can network with (you can access the class site the moment you sign up so you can get networking TODAY) is a mere $149 (or if you took the last two classes you are a BYW Member so it’s $129 for you. Bam!). WHAT A DEAL! Blog Boss runs online from October 10 – November 10 and it’s a class that you can login ANYTIME day or night to see what’s new, listen to podcasts, watch our videos, etc. We have a private student forum where you can chat with others from around the world and ask questions and best of all, get the best answers.

Topics we’ll cover include:

* Blog burn out? Turn blogging into something you love again

* The good, the bad and the ugly: working from home and how to find balance

* Goal setting + ideas: How to choose and follow through

* How to know which ideas to pursue and which ones to shelf for later

* Planning and prioritizing your blog posts the easy way

* Teaming up with other bloggers – things to do, things to avoid

* New, smart ways to make money as a blogger

* Do not work for free or “exposure”, Here’s why!

* What’s trending with blogs

* Social media tips + tricks for Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter and Instagram

And 10+ more lessons!

So, that’s my sales pitch. Are you in? OF COURSE YOU ARE! See you in class, you crazy blog boss, you!

    Holly, is this a course for more seasoned bloggers or is it also meant for newbies? I’m relatively new to the blogging world and I’m not sure how to grow my blog mostly because I don’t know who reads it and why. Perhaps you can do a post about that if it’s not in the course?

      @Kiana – It’s for all levels and I’m sure you will benefit by jumping in, networking with the other fab ladies in the class, etc. We’ll have fun, don’t miss out!!!!

    I have fallen in love with my newborn as well (born at Christmas). My little prince made me realize that – besides anything – I want him to be proud of his mummy; this means one thing: that I lead my life by opening my heart and letting it speak. Therefore I am going to continue my (blog)writing; something that kept me going since I was young (36 now).. My Dutch blog is my best friend. But, due to Blogging Boss ( I am enrolling this evening) I am sure it will also become the platform of which my son will be proud. Thanks Holly for your inspiration and chance to enrichen my (blog)life.

    i am thrilled to take another BYW class. i adore you and your spot on teaching style.
    i can use all the inspiration i find in your classes to carry on with my blog Platinum Boomer. And i should add to “fabulous at any age” – “continue learning at any age!”

    thanks so much

    I’ve been waiting for this course, forever! But I’m going overseas from 6 Oct to 20 Nov, and I am unsure if I will have proper internet access during this time.

    For 6 Oct to 30 Oct, I’ll be in China, and I’m concerned about 1) if the website will be blocked over there and 2) if internet speed is ok. And from 1 Nov to 20 Nov, I will be going to the US with two little kids, and I’m not sure if I’d have the time.

    What shall I do? And when will you next run this course or 2.0, Holly? Thank you!

    • Reply decor8 September 11, 2014 at 8:27 pm

      @Lucy Chen – It will be awhile as I plan to totally change Blogging Your Way for 2015 and I will no longer have any of my current classes anymore – no more 2.0 or Blog Boss or any of them. So if you want in, this is it for several months. It sounds like you won’t have the time so just wait and join us next year when we have some different classes, I’m sure you will still love what we’ll teach and be just as excited for them!!!

    Hi there! I am interested in bloging and learning about it, but I do not have a blog.I do my first baby steps with “bloging” on social media. Do I need to have an actual blog in relation to the course?

    • Reply decor8 September 11, 2014 at 8:28 pm

      @Lana – Yes, it’s helpful to have a blog because you can apply what you are learning as you go. So just sign up with or WordPress or Squarespace or whatever and create a blog and then work in the class to get it all pulled together, talk to other students and ask them for help/advice, etc. It’s a great way to kick yourself into gear!!!

    Hi Holly!

    I loved the last Blog Boss class and look forward to taking this one! My favorite part of your classes are always listening to your podcasts with a big cup a tea in hand!!

    OH! Checking this out now!

  • Reply Lucy Chen September 12, 2014 at 10:43 am


    Oh I see. I am excited for your new courses for sure.

    I’ve read in your FAQ that the content will be removed from the website not long after the course ends, so I think you’re right, it’s better I wait for next year.

    Thank you, Holly.

    • Reply decor8 September 12, 2014 at 1:16 pm

      @Lucy – All of the content is removed for each course and we will continue to do that in 2015, etc. We want students to take the class seriously and to get involved. We find that giving students indefinite access to course materials makes them NOT very interested in being present during class because they think they can do it anytime. And that means less participation in class, less “good energy”, and ultimately the experience for all is affected. I’ve taken classes online where materials can be accessed forever and I do not take it as serious as I do when there is a set time limit. In fact, I don’t even show up for class and log in after the class is over and then I feel alone and disconnected. So yeah, the class materials will always be taken down a few weeks after the class ends. It’s like going to college, you can’t go back to the classroom in 6 months and ask the teacher to teach you everything again because you weren’t really paying attention the first time… Right?

    Hi Holly!

    How are you?

    I’ve been saving up since last year for your Style & Intention class, as you had it written, at one time, you were going be running it again in the Fall of 2014.

    Where can I find a list of classes you are running this year?

    Do you have a co-teacher for Blog Boss? Will there be any lessons on styling, photography, or design related to todays blog world?

    Once the class is taken down, where are the lessons and information available for reference? is everything downloadable?

    Thanks much,
