Hi lovelies, I’ve got some super exciting news to share with you today! In November, I will be hosting a blogging workshop with Kathryn from Becoming you! While chatting recently, we realised that there was a real need for a blogging workshop in Cape Town and so we’ve decided to host our very own BLOG BOOT CAMP.
Here’s a bit of info about the workshop, let us know if you have any queries. It’s going to be a fantastic morning, even if I say so myself!
The world of blogging can be quite daunting to someone who is just starting out and we know that there are so many questions related to building and beautifying a blog. The BLOG BOOT CAMP workshop is aimed at teaching you all the ins and outs of blogging and to inspire you to grow your blog whether it’s just a hobby or part of your small business.
The goal of BLOG BOOT CAMP is to give beginner bloggers the tools they need to run a better, more successful, and creative blog. The course will cover tips for creatively improving the design of your site, using social media to market your blog, monetizing your blog by working with sponsors and advertisers and finding your unique blogging voice. The morning will be filled with practical information and inspiration to help you to build a better blog and spark your creativity!
