Blogging Your Way 2.0

Holly Becker of Decor8 has expanded her long-running course, Blogging Your Way, with a new 2.0 class for bloggers past the beginning stages. Holly is a supportive, open, and honest teacher, and I’m proud to be joining her along with Jeanette Lunde from Fryd + Design to teach the first session this June.

I’ll be showing how I create layouts for Making it Lovely, talking about advertising and monetizing your blog, and more. The full list of course topics covered can be found here.

Join Us!

Registration has begun and you can sign up here. I also have two spots to give away! You can enter by leaving a comment below with the class’ hashtag: #byw2.

Rules: The giveaway is open to international entrants until midnight CST, May 20. One entry per person. Two winners will be chosen at random and notified on May 21. Seats are non-transferrable, and those who have already registered and paid for BYW 2.0 are ineligible. Valid only for the June e-course. Comments must include #byw2 to be eligible.

* The winners are Sarah A. and Kate S.

    #byw2. Nicole I’ve lost my way!! I took the course early last year but have been focused on other things since. Including my new baby grandson. I have a plan, but executing it will need a good deal of planning, ideas and faith. I so need to get my head around ways to promote it and make the ideas exciting via my blog. It’s stalled and I need help. This is such a great opportunity, thank you. I haven’t been able to enrol for this one because of lack of funds! Thank you for offering the spots on the course….T
