Want To Learn How To Deal With Haters, Build Your Audience, Set Your Rates, And Take A Great Still Life Photograph?

We’re super-excited today to announce the addition of four new videos to our Home School roster! Filmed in in a picturesque English garden, we created lessons around some of the questions we’re asked most often.

Dealing With Negativity features all three of us discussing how we deal with negativity online. The potential of getting negative feedback stops a lot of people from sharing their true selves online, which is such a shame! If this is happening to you, don’t worry: you’re not the only one! We trade war stories, talk about coping strategies, and ask, does it ever get any easier?

Still Life 101 was inspired by a segment Shauna created on-the-fly in our Chicago class. It’s now a staple of our Blogcademy weekend! In this lesson, Shauna shares her top tips on how to craft a great still life, no matter whether you’re using Instagram or composing images for your latest blog post. Remember, photos of experiences usually get more engagement than selfies because people genuinely want to see what you’re working on and what you’re inspired by!

How To Set Your Rates is all about coming up with a price (and sticking to it!). Shauna and Kat have a great conversation about setting rates, and cover it from the perspective of both a blogger figuring out how much to charge for sponsored posts, advertising or collaborations, and as a creative using your blog to sell your services.

Building Your Audience is clearly one of the most important things you can do, and it’s one of the things we get asked about most often. There are so many things you can do to engage readers and make sure your content is reaching the right people, and in this video, you’ll learn all about the techniques that we used when we started our blogs. In fact, we continue to implement them to this day!

We’re delighted to build on from our original 9 components, which covered Blogging Basics (a free class!), Media Kits For Bloggers, Creating An About Me Page, Blog Brand Audit, Brands Working w/ Bloggers, PR & Marketing For Blogs, Advertising, Creating Killer Content, How To Work With Brands, and Pinterest for Bloggers. Phew!

Each lesson is priced at $20, and they all come with worksheets, checklists, and prompts to help you put into practice what you’ve learned. They’re designed and presented efficiently, because we know how busy you are — we don’t want to waste your time, babe! We promise to only give you real, actionable information you can actually use. Our tagline is No Boredom, No Blathering, No Bullshit, after all!

Much love,
