Blog Boss: The Business of Blogging e-course

October 2, 2014

So, with all of the blog burn out and stories of slowing down out there, are you ready to get pumped again about blogging, to get serious and to move full stream ahead? Because now is the time plus I want to announce my two co-teachers who are all set and ready to teach alongside of me for Blog Boss: the Business of Blogging that starts online October 10th. First up is Nichole Robertson from Obvious State (formerly known as Little Brown Pen) and Fiona Humberstone from The Brand Stylist.

Both bring years of expertise and wisdom not only on small business and blogging but on the topics they’ll teach which are outlined above – I can’t wait to learn all of the fun color psychology for branding personally… Just look at some of the examples of what Fiona will teach above – I love the idea that we each have a very distinct seasonal personality. I’m also very interested in what Nichole has to say about storytelling as she does that so perfectly on her blog and in her books.

Nichole Robertson is an American writer, photographer and bestselling author of Paris in Color, The Paris Journal and Paris In Love (now ready for pre-order). She also co-runs Obvious State, a multi-disciplinary creative studio. Prior to Obvious State, Nichole spent ten years as a New York-based freelance writer, working with brands, magazines and ad agencies.

Nichole will teachStorytelling for Bloggers, How to monetize your blog without ads, and The power of a mailing list (which is now more than ever quite important!).

Fiona Humberstone is a self-published author, speaker, Creative Director and blogger at The Brand Stylist. Based outside of  London, she has worked with small businesses for fifteen years: styling brands, running workshops and has owned, run, grown and sold franchises as well as founding, building and selling her own company, Flourish Studios. There is nothing she loves more than working with small business owners (and bloggers!) to capture the essence of what makes their brand unique and to help them communicate that powerfully.

Fiona will teachBranding — The absolute essentials of color psychology, Making design decisions that reflect your style, and Using color psychology to influence your editorial decisions (so that you communicate with authenticity and consistency).

And of course, I’ll teach through written lessons and podcasts (my topics are here) so you’ll be inspired, focused and ready to go out there and get to work on your blog viewing it as your business – I’ll fire up your engines for sure because blogging is something I’ve found a lot of success with and I want to share my secrets with you. I have so many.

To enroll, you can click here. If you’ve taken Blog Boss before please note this is a totally different curriculum so materials are not recycled. You only have a few days until we close registration and this class will never be taught again – so if you want in, this is your last chance. Class begins October 10th!

    Hi! I just registered for the course. I can’t believe Fiona and Nichole are offering exactly what I wanted to learn – branding and storytelling – what great additions to the already amazing course! Can’t wait for it to start!! xx

    I’ve looked at your courses before, Id love to enrol, but the fact I haven’t actually even started a blog, has put me off! I’m just not sure where to start! Do you have any suggestions of how to start? I’d love to do a future course once I’ve got a blog… Don’t want to go about it the wrong way round!
    Many thanks

    I’m extremely excited to learn more about color psychology, not only for blogging but as a designer I think it will help strengthen my skills. This will be really interesting!

    Great that colours are being taken into account in this training on a much deeper level. And realizing the importance of colours matching up with the essence of our being, and consequently our work.
