I mentioned previously that I have been really stuck in a rut lately with my blog and wasn’t sure how to really move forward, or how to succeed. Then I started the LadyBossBlogger* course, How To Start A Money Making Blog and can honestly say I have found a whole new love for my blog.

Elaine Rau‘s course starts from the very beginning, so I was able to completely refresh my mindset and discover my “why”, as well as reconsider my niche (take the quiz if you’re not sure what you want yours to be!).

Before LadyBossBlogger, I was just aimlessly writing and not really considering who my audience is, or what they might want to hear. These are all topics that are covered in the first 25% of the course*, so I think that reflects just how much there is to learn.

“If you’re writing blog posts without a defined goal of what you’re trying to accomplish, you’re tossing work in to the wind hoping something will stick.”

This is exactly what I was doing before this course! I’m now looking forward to implementing what I have learnt when I write my future posts, rather than racking my brains on what I feel like writing about week to week.

What I particularly appreciated throughout the course*, was Elaine’s honesty in sharing all of her knowledge in every aspect of blogging. I think it would be easy for someone to keep all of this to themselves, but Elaine has shared everything she knows in order to help others succeed.

Elaine encourages you from lesson one in a way that feels personal, helping you to figure out what kind of blogger you are. Then on top of that, she helps you to figure out your strengths and how to utilise them, as well as the resources to help you with what you need to improve on. For example, those of us that are more in to the writing side of things but not the design – Canva is your friend. I can definitely vouch for this!

I won’t give too much away, but so that you know what else to expect, the course also covers:

I wasn’t focused on any of these things before now but seeing as I’ve already noticed an increase in my blog traffic, I’m incredibly excited to move forward and continuing putting all of the great lessons from this course* in to practice.

Some more key points I have learnt during the course* are:

  • It’s important to read other people’s blogs but also use them as research too – Elaine suggests some of the top bloggers in the most profitable niches, so I’ve also found some great new bloggers to follow!
  • You should be solving a problem or answering a question for your readers
  • Blogging is more than just writing a great post
  • You can supplement your blog with a YouTube video and/or podcast – something I definitely want to explore in the near future
  • Don’t be afraid to reach out to brands!
  • Celebrate the milestones – all of the little ones, not just the big ones
  • There is no such thing as an oversaturated niche
  • Try your best and give it your all, the worst thing you can do is nothing!
  • It’s ok if you want to explore more than one niche (phew!) …but do narrow it down

All in all, I’ve learnt more from this course* than I could have ever imagined.

If you use my code KATIEWATT, then you can grab yourself 40% off of the blogging course* for yourself, or perhaps How To Make Money as an Instagram Influencer if that’s more for you!

LadyBossBlogger: The Blogging Course That Is Engaging From The Start

If you follow me on my Instagram or Twitter, you might have seen me mention that I’ve felt a bit stuck in a rut with my blog over the past couple of weeks. I’ve started to feel a little bit like it’s not going anywhere anytime soon, which is frustrating to say the least, especially when I don’t really know how to rectify that! I thought about courses but was really put off my costs and how vague they seemed, would it really help or would it just be a waste of money?

LadyBossBlogger to the rescue!

Start A Money Making Blog* is broken down into easy to follow sections and is engaging right from the start, to the point that I actually feel excited to work on my blog again. The course* is broken down into the following categories:

  • Discover your “Why”
  • Find Your Niche
  • Claim Your Blog Domain Name
  • Create Your Target Audience
  • Design Your Brand
  • Set Up Email Marketing Strategy
  • Blog Marketing Strategy: Social Media Foundations
  • Learn WordPress Basics
  • SEO Best Practices
  • Curate Strategic Content
  • How To Make Money Blogging
  • Understand The Legal Aspects
  • How To Promote Your Blog + Brand

So, as you can tell, there’s A LOT of learning to do and the course* covers literally everything right from the beginning of starting a blog! That doesn’t mean it won’t be helpful if you’ve already started though. I’m nearly a year into my blog but have still learnt so much already… considering I’ve only completed 5% at this stage, that’s pretty impressive.

The main points that I have taken away so far are:

  • Your content needs to be of value to others, not just yourself
  • The importance of scheduling posts and setting up an email list
  • Focusing on your mindset – you need to find your purpose, your WHY. The first part of the course really focuses on this and how to get to know yourself better, which I thought was particularly great.
  • You don’t need to be an expert right away – it’s ok to still be learning!
  • The thing that hit me the most… be ok with where you are in your journey

All in all, I’m very excited to get well and truly stuck in to the course* and start implementing everything that I learn along the way. There is a real personal touch and I can tell already that Elaine is right there for every step of the way.

As well as A Money Making Blog course, LadyBossBlogger also has a great course on How to Make Money As An Influencer. If you head over to my Instagram right now, I’m REALLY excited to inform you that I’m running a great competition to win either one of these courses for FREE.

In the meantime, I also have a 40% code you can use! Head over to LadyBossBlogger and use KATIEWATT. Additional LadyBossBlogger Resources are:
