I have a huge announcement to make today you guys – it’s regarding something I’ve been working on for a very long time.
It’s a STEP-BY-STEP COURSE ON STARTING A BLOG (for beginners!)
Because I write so often on the blog about earning extra income from home, I get so many emails from people (mostly other moms) every week asking me specifically for advice on how to get a blog going.
I have a whole 2,000+ word blog post dedicated to the entire blog startup process – it’s a complete step-by-step “how to start a blog” tutorial that walks you through every step of setting up a new blog; however, it’s a LOT to read all at once.
I always felt like I could make the process easier to follow. I don’t want you to miss a single critical step in the process of starting a blog. So this course is exactly that – an easy to follow step by step daily guide to starting a blog the right way from scratch!
What You’ll Learn in Start a Blog Bootcamp
Let me start by saying I WISH I had had access to a course like this when I was first starting out. It’s so much easier to have someone walk you step by step through the set up process (as opposed to how I had to piece together all the information I needed from dozens of blog posts and Youtube videos! No thank you! This course is your easy button. 🙂
In the Start a Blog Bootcamp we’ll cover how bloggers make money, how to choose a blog name, how to determine your blog categories, and more. It will basically guide you through the process of pre-planning your blog all the way to the point when you start drafting your first blog post.
Here’s a peek at the table of contents:
Notice how I’ve laid out the course into “days” but keep in mind that you will have long term access to this course, so if you need to go through it over the course of a few weeks instead of in a 5-day straight period, then that’s completely fine! It’s up to you.
I have more trainings in the works for the stuff you need to know after this. There is a lot that goes on between starting a blog and having a $10,000 month blog, but little by little we will get there together!
With this course, you also get access to some handy cheat sheets to help you choose the perfect blog name.
These are super useful to help you choose a blog name you won’t regret!
The worksheet set includes a brainstorming worksheet to help you dig deep for words and names that have meaning to you and relate to your blog topic. And the second page is a list of commonly mixed and matched words for an amazing blog name. You can literally use these two worksheets to help you come up with a catchy blog name that’s unique to you that also has a special meaning to you as well.

I hope you decide to join me on my crazy blogging adventures. 🙂
How to Get Over Your Fear of Starting a Blog
I can’t tell you how many emails I receive each month along the lines of “I have been thinking about starting a blog for a really long time, but I just don’t know where to start or if I’ll be good at it. Help!”
Literally, at least 10.
I get it – learning how to start a blog is one thing. Actually doing it is another!
I was scared out of my ever-loving mind when I published my first blog post. I felt like I was getting up in front of the entire world on stage and shouting my story.
It can be intimidating! Putting yourself out there is one of the hardest things to do. It’s hard for me even to this day! Sharing things like my fears about getting diabetes or exposing my actual income…that’s hard stuff.
I won’t say it will be easy. But I will say that it get easier over time. Take this post for instance. At one time, this would have taken me an entire day to write. But now? I can do it in less than an hour. It’s just gotten easier over time as I’ve gotten to know my readers and really considered exactly what I’m trying accomplish with my blog – for me, that’s help other moms find financial freedom. For you, it might be helping others get over the stigma of mental illness or find easier ways to lose weight without spending every moment at the gym. We all have something important to say – you have a voice and experiences that others can benefit from – never forget that!
Also, as I like to say, “What’s the worst that can happen?”
You spend a few weeks working on the blog to decide it’s not for you?
You spend a few weeks diving into the blogging world and realizing it’s far more rewarding that you could have ever imagined and you can’t believe you didn’t do it sooner?
Is the downside (wasting a few weeks of your time) REALLY worth not risking it for the potential upside of living your dreams?
What would you do with an extra $500, $1,000, or $5,000 per month? That’s the real issue here! I love to look at the benefits of blogging.
Please – I beg you – don’t get caught up in the fact that someone will think you’re a failure or you’ll never get started. Truth is, you don’t even have to tell your family and friends that you have a blog until you’re ready. And even if you do, will they really ridicule you if you gave it a shot and changed your mind? I doubt it.
The Life-Changing Potential of Blogging
Starting a blog was a big deal – for me, it was the turning point in my life where I stopped worrying about money + clipping coupons and started seeing amazing income possibilities open up for my future.
I want to help as many women as possible create the same future for themself – to have a way to contribute to their family income while freeing up their time to spend it doing whatever they want, whether that’s going on all the field trips with their kids or going on vacation whenever they want.
We don’t need to be defined by a 9-to-5 job and we don’t need to answer to anyone else for our financial future. This opportunity is available right now to anyone with the means to come up with $200-$300 to start the online business of their dreams. That’s literally how much it costs to start a blog from scratch. I don’t know of any other legit work from home opportunity that offers that promise right now.
I think blogging is the best way to spread a message + make money from home that ever existed – we truly live in amazing times right now. Everyone who’s getting on the blogging bandwagon in the early days is reaping the benefits that may fizzle out in the distant future….it’s like the gold rush of the internet ya’ll.
There are so many ways to make money from a blog – I won’t get into those here, but you can read all about them in my income reports here >> I’ve posted detailed accounts of many months from when I was earning $3k per month all the way up to $10k to give everyone an idea of what’s possible.
I hope you decide to join me on this adventure. I’m honored you’ve decided to let me be your coach. Now let’s get to work!
See you on the other side! :=D
