When we announced our first Blogcademy class in New York City, way back in October 2012, we had no idea whether it would work. We didn’t know if we’d sell a single ticket. Just before we hit ‘publish’ on our blog posts, and nerves were at an all-time high, I told the girls, “Don’t worry! If we don’t sell any tickets, we’ll have a slumber party in the venue — just the three of us. It’ll be great!”
We needn’t have worried. Our class sold out in a week, and our next one sold out in 24 hours. Demand has just kept on growing ever since.
We love what we do… But after teaching well over 400 babes on several continents, we looked at one another and realised that travelling and teaching in-person doesn’t scale. There were plenty of places we hadn’t visited yet, but we still had full-time careers, husbands, and families. And it became clear to us that not everyone who needed our help could afford to come to class, either because of the price-tag or they simply didn’t have the time.
How could we bring Blogcademy to the people, we wondered?
Announcing: The Blogcademy Home School
We wanted to create content that you could engage with any time, and keep learning from as often as you needed. We wanted to film videos so it felt like you were right there with us, and wouldn’t have to read a massive wall of text. Who has time for that, anyway? We wanted to give it to you Blogcademy style: no boredom, no blathering, no bullshit!
The Blogcademy Home School was our answer. We’ve created Blog Boosters, ten videos around various topics — from advertising, to branding, to creating killer content — that you can use to fill in the gaps in your knowledge. They’re snappy, jam-packed with information, and will get you from point A to B efficiently. No muss, no fuss. We promise that our Blog Boosters will get you excited about blogging, and increase your money-making potential to boot. After all, girls just wanna have funds!
Even better? Our first video, Blogging Basics, is totally FREE! Just click on through to get a taste of what our Home School Blog Boosters are all about.
Curious about the benefits of learning at home in your pyjamas? (Other than the pyjamas, of course…)
We’re beyond excited to be sharing Home School with you today. No matter where you live, and no matter how much time you have available to devote to improving your blog and online business, we know these videos (with accompanying worksheets, activities and resources) will help you grow your business. Once you start to implement the lessons you’ve learned, you’ll be amazed by how quickly you see results.
But wait! That’s not all! (C’mon, you know us: we love to keep it spicy!)
Come and party with us in London!
One of the things we hear over and over again from our blogcadettes is how amazed — and delighted — they are to meet babes just like them at The Blogcademy. Life-long friendships are formed in every single class we teach… And it’s a beautiful thing.
It’s true that meeting your tribe is powerful, transformative, and life-affirming. So we thought, maybe it’s time to do it en masse! How special would it be to introduce 100 passionate blogcadettes all at once? The answer: very special indeed.
Join us — and your future BFFs — at The Roost in London on the 24th of July. There will be delicious mixed drinks, tasty snacks, a blow-your-goddamn-socks-off goodie bag, an all-you-can-snap photobooth, a lively Q&A (so you can get all your blogging questions answered, and then some), and hours of gleeful fun with bloggers, small business owners, and independent babes just like you.
It’s networking, babe, but not as you know it. We promise there will be no sleazoids, fluorescent lights, or stale sandwiches!
Oh, man! The excitement of it all! If you’re unsure of anything I’ve said here, hit me up on Twitter.
P.S. Are we still going to be teaching in-person workshops? You bet your ASS. You ain’t seen nothin’ yet! And we’re almost sold out of, well, all of them. So buy your damn ticket or rue the day!
