• How do you start a blog?

    Many women ask me this question: “How do I start a blog?” and I always give them the same answer: I took The Blog Class with our real life friends Emily and Ryan of Jones Design Company.

    If you know you want to start a blog, stop reading this post and click here to see the re-launch of The Blog Class with Emily and Ryan.

    If you are familiar with blogging, you could start a blog pretty easily with a template and a free account. These free resources are great for people who want to use their blog as a sort of online journal that they can share with others.

    But what if you need more than that?

    What if you need someone to explain everything to you in a way that you actually understand it?

    The Blog Class includes 40 cheerful, inspiring instructional videos that you can view over and over at your convenience.

    What if you need shopping carts and customizable everything?

    If you plan to sell something from your blog, or promote your book or homemade products, you need a customizable template (which comes with the Blog Class! It’s the Canvas theme, which normally costs $100; it’s the same one I use). This way you can add your own graphics and info for your business, and make changes to whatever you’d like to change as time goes on.

    What if you want to save tons of time and avoid mistakes that many newcomers make?

    For example:

    What size photo can you add to a blog?

    Why does the size of the photos matter?

    How do I adjust the size of my photos?

    How do I avoid spam comments? (I’ve had like 13,000 spam comments in just two years that were blocked because Ryan helped me find the right spam blocker!)

    How do I make sure I don’t pick up viruses?

    And here is the big one:

    What if you need lots of encouragement?

    Emily and Ryan are some of the most encouraging and generous people I know. They will put 150 % of their effort into helping you succeed, and they will encourage you and cheer you on.

    Emily and Ryan truly encouraged me. I don’t think I ever would have started my blog without this class.

    If you are stuck anywhere in the process and you really need things to come together for your blog, take this class! It is totally worth the money. Check out their info page here. It’s time to get started because you have something beautiful to offer and you need to get it out there! Good Luck!
