Blog Boot Camp 2014

Blog Boot Camp 2014

I’m very excited to announce that Kathryn of Becoming You and myself will be holding our second Blog Boot Camp on the 7th of June. We held the first Blog Boot Camp last year and it was a fantastic morning. We had lots of wonderful feedback and thoroughly enjoyed sharing our knowledge and meeting so many great bloggers!

Once again we’ll be using the fabulous vm central & olive studio at The Woodstock Foundry and the morning will be filled with valuable advice, tips and tools on how to enhance your blog.

Here’s some more info about the morning…

The world of blogs can be quite a daunting one 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 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, how to use social media to promote your blog, how to monetize 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!

  1. Would love to do this but I’m a Blogspot blogger. Do think you’ll ever run a ‘generic’ workshop? x

      Hi Colleen

      We will stick to because that’s the platform that Kathryn and I both use and know best.

      Some of the tips and tools and technical side of things that we cover in the workshop would obviously not be relevant to you but you will still come away inspired and have a great morning!

  2. Ah I wish I was in Cape Town to attend!
