Can you be a Lady Boss Blogger? Great question! I am going to answer this fast… YES! in fact, HELL YES! haha! It’s 2020 and I have come across many asking is blogging dead? absolutely not. Yes, there are more blogs than ever but trust me blogging is alive and well with more people than ever not only blogging but actually living off them. Yep, that’s right… making a full-time wage and living life on their own terms. Sounds amazing right?
My blogging journey
So I started blogging about 3 years ago now – albeit sporadically! One day I just thought I have so much to say… I’m going to start a blog! and I did… just like that. I signed up on WordPress and basically winged my way through setting up a very basic blog. Bottom line – I was just loving writing. Was anyone reading it? perhaps a handful of people if I was lucky. Why? because I had no idea what I was doing really, I hadn’t even considered things like SEO.
The turning point…
Fast forward to last October and I decided to take my blogging venture a little more seriously. I was envious of other blogs I was looking at and their pleasing aesthetics and honestly, I’m not the kind of person to do anything half-hearted… so why was I doing this with my blog?!
There’s a wealth of blogging information out there…
There is a ton of information on blogging and a lot is available for free which is amazing and you should totally take advantage of this. But it can become hard work… googling this and that trying to pull articles from all over the internet to just find not only the right info but the best! I spent ALOT of time doing this.
Spending money on blogging!
So I was lost in a sea of information and for me, it was the right thing to do to pay someone to help me. I’m not tech-savvy, I’m creative! I like writing, I’m obsessed with words, pretty photos and a fan of social media. Building a website was really not my forte! Plus I had made the mistake of not being self-hosted. What does this mean? well, I didn’t actually own my site, gulp! So I enlisted help off someone who is tech-savvy to migrate my site to the self-hosted platform GoDaddy and redesign it. I justified this by telling myself I wouldn’t fix my own car, cut on my hair etc so why would I spend copious amounts of time learning how to build a website?
Fact: Blogging is not free!
True story… even running the most basic site is not free. But if you are thinking of starting a blog to make money then you are going to have to invest in it. Not only money but time… I have spent pure time on my blog, I mean it’s a lot to learn. My advice… take whatever shortcuts you can! There is one course I wish I had bought from the beginning… Lady Boss Blogger’s “HOW TO START A MONEY MAKING BLOG” Course. Sadly for me, this was not on my radar when I started out but if it had of been I could have saved myself a ton of headaches, trust me!
Learn to blog the right way
Imagine somebody giving you every single step to creating a blog the RIGHT way… well this is exactly what the LadyBossBlogger Course does. It breaks down EVERY SINGLE STEP of setting up a blog and not only that a blog that you could totally make a business out of. Let me tell you… Lady Boss Blogger is not messing about!
Lady Boss Blogger covers it all…
Now there is no need to be overwhelmed… it is broken down into modules. So you can work your way through the steps at your own pace. No stone is left unturned… and guess what? If I had found this course at the beginning of my journey I could probably have set up and designed my own self hosted site too! (saving me the money I spent on that!)
Working my way through the course…
Confession: I’m still working my way through the course but I simply had to bring it to your attention now. Why? because I don’t want you to waste time like I did trying to figure it all out! Time is precious, isn’t it? and had I found this course in my early blogging days I would be a lot further along with my blogging journey now. But it is just that… a journey and the main thing is I am enjoying it. If you are on the fence about whether to even start a blog at all perhaps reading my post ‘I’m so in love with blogging‘ will inspire you.
A closer peek at the course…
I love that the course doesn’t just dive into setting up your blog… it helps you discover your why and find your niche which is so important. Just to give you an idea… setting up WordPress is step 9! Before that, we dive into designing your brand, email marketing strategy, and social media foundations. It covers the best SEO practices (so important!) creating strategic content and the all-important ‘Howto make money blogging‘. Did you know there are legalities with a blog? Yep… me neither! as I said earlier no stone is left unturned…
It also includes a few bonuses like ‘how to make money as an influencer’ I know a lot of people are keen to do this too and it goes hand in hand with blogging!
Wait… who has written this course?
This is an important question… can we trust this information? absolutely… here are the facts! This course is brought to you by Elaine Rau who speaks at conferences all around the world on how to blog professionally and make money online as an influencer. In just under a year she gained 20,000 followers across her social media platforms, it’s been 3 years now and she is up to 200,000! WOW! You can read her full story on the Huffington Post here.
