I have taken the beautiful Blogging Your Way course three times now. Each time I have finished the course feeling inspired, energised, focused and connected. Over the past couple of years my blog has gone from an idea in my head to something that is an intrinsic part of my life. Holly’s lesson about blogging to live a better life couldn’t ring more true for me. I cannot wait to take Blogging Your Way again and I recommend it from the bottom of my heart.
I more than recommend this class to anyone who wants to start blogging. Holly’s e-course has been so inspirational to me, on so many levels. She’s taught me how to be a better blogger, and how to be the best version of myself. Her podcasts are amazing, and I think about blogging in a whole new way. “Be the tulip among the wildflowers,” “Be editor in chief of your life,” “If people bring you down- drop them,” “Be authentic, be creative, be original, be inspiring,” and of course, “Write the damn post!” I looked forward to this class every night when I came home from work, and look forward to the next one. Tina and Thorsten were fantastic and taught me so much about photography and journalistic writing.
One more of Holly’s words of wisdom- “Be a picky Pinner.” This has completely changed the way I interact in Pinterest. When I started this class I had 12 boards, and now I have 30 boards. I have gained several followers in the last month when I began to implement the skills Holly taught me. I constantly edit my pin selections to represent my brand. It’s a great platform to share all things I love and am inspired by.
Thank you so much for this wonderful journey into the world of Blogging.
Holly put together a wonderful team of industry experts to share their knowledge through practical lessons and tutorials. Each teacher, including Holly, was approachable, incredibly giving and taught from the heart. I fell in love with blogging during the course and I completed it with so much valuable information that I continue to implement today.
BYW gave me the confidence to blog from my heart and also motivated, inspired, and it made me stop and really think. Holly has a natural gift for connecting with people, and connecting people to people. I’ve made some great blogger friends that live nearby because of this class and that is absolutely priceless. I literally would not know them if it wasn’t for BYW. Lastly, Thorsten provides such first class technical advice and help in the forums that it could be a whole stand alone course. Thanks Holly, Thorsten, and all the fab teachers you have on board. BYW is a must!
My most rewarding takeaway from the class is that I now really enjoy blogging. I have connected with a lot of lovely people and I am continually uncovering what is and is not important to me. Holly’s approach to blogging as a very personal pursuit runs through the class as a red line. She really shows you how to take your blog to a professional level but also leaves you with the choice to develop your personal space so as to serve you in the best possible way for where you are in your life. For me, at this time, that is to focus my creative energies, and thanks to BYW I am doing so with the greatest of confidence!
Had this been a movie – it would have been a blockbuster! Had this been a book – it would have been a bestseller! The wealth of this course not only revolved around blogging with the incredible experience and wisdom Holly and her co-teachers added or the support and backbone Thorsten, their tech support guru, provided… It was a personal journey for each new, or old, blogger to delve deep into why we blog, who we are, what we should and could and it challenged each of us to stay focused, stay positive and most of all to ENJOY! Holly and her teachers are a team I would put my money on again any day.
Completely and utterly fantastic instructors. This e-class was so well thought out and explained. Very inspiring too! This course was more than I had expected, and it’s not just technical knowledge I’ve learned but what I really appreciated most is the motivation and inspiration that you have given me. I feel like a brave blogger now that I know the guidelines of the blogging world. I can’t believe how wonderful blogging is once you know the inside secrets. I would have never discovered any of this on my own. I had high expectations but BYW surpassed them all. I loved every minute of this course!
