The Art of Building A Blogging Career

THE ART OF DOING STUFF ECOURSEWhen I first started blogging, I had no clue what I was doing. Like, none. Not at all. No one was there to guide me, or direct me, or steer me away from or towards certain avenues, including advertising/sponsorship, content, finding my “voice” online, and so much more. Sure, there were certainly courses on how to achieve blog success and to parlay a love of blogging into a viable career, but they were all away, one had to travel to get to them. Lacking both the time and resources necessary to attend such blog-schooling conferences, I considered them out of my league and kind of blundered my way through the process of crafting a career from blogging.

Fortunately for you, other options now exist, including a very exciting one being offered by my Canadian buddy, Karen Bertelsen. A former TV personality, Karen found a very successful way of taking her blog The Art of Doing Stuff from a hobby to a career. She’s ready to share the secrets to her success with you. There are very few folks I’d consider adept and skilled enough at such a topic to recommend to you. Karen is definitely such an individual. Time and again, she guides her blog’s readers with detailed instructions and a hefty dose of humor (which I very much enjoy) how to craft, build, bake, or otherwise create something. She’s a natural teacher.

Karen has created what looks to be a wonderful, information-rich e-course entitled “The Art of Building a Blogging Career.” It begins September 15th and lasts 5 days, for 1 hour a day. But what if your schedule doesn’t permit you to be in one place, guaranteed, for 5 days next week? No problem. That’s just when the class is live, should you wish to interact with other folks enrolled or chat directly with Karen. Otherwise, you can take the courses at your leisure, and there’s no expiration date on when to complete the program by. Pretty awesome, right?

The program is $250 for the full 5 days/5 hours of instruction. That might seem steep at first glance for some of you, but, really, it boils down to $50/session, an amazing deal for receiving first-person, thorough information from a highly trafficked blogger on taking your own blog to the next level. And you can do it all from home. In your p.j.’s, With a cocktail, even, if that’s your kind of thing.

In an effort at complete transparency, I’ll disclose that Karen has invited me to share her e-course on “The Art of Building a Blogging Career” as an affiliate. What that means is that for every small measure reader that signs up because of my recommendation, I’ll receive a commission. Honestly, though, I’d vouch for her whether I stand to make anything from her endeavor or not. Her tone, humor, style, and general body of knowledge draw her to me, and I think that she’d resonate with many of you, too.

Cheers to sharing skill sets and helping others become proficient at blogging and being creative, successful individuals! Best of luck in your course, Karen!
