WHAT IS BLOGGING YOUR WAY?

Trusted + Respected

Blogging Your Way launched in 2009 when Holly Becker, best-selling book author and founder of one of the first design blogs, decor8, decided to teach the web’s first e-course about blogging. Together with her business partner and husband, Thorsten, and a team of professional co-teachers, classes personal instruction online on blogging, social media, creativity, photography and styling for not only bloggers but also influencers and business owners who want to learn more about how to network, earn money and grow their brand online.

Confident Graduates

We’ve taught over 9,000 students worldwide and many have moved on to win awards, author books, work for print magazines and television networks, design product lines, launch their own retail spaces, create e-courses of their own and become top bloggers and influencers. We are honored to have taught so many amazing women (and a few men!) who have walked away empowered to face their career with the tools needed to succeed.

Content Is Never Repeated

Our online classes re not pre-canned - we don't sell the same content over and over again as a new class. We create all new videos, written lessons, podcasts and screencasts for each new class. Each e-course is taught in a semi-live fashion with lessons shared multiple times a week, homework assignments given by teachers once weekly (and checked) and a live weekly chat between students and their teacher. Students and teachers are fully accessible and active in our private forum on our site (not a Facebook forum), answering questions concerning lessons and sharing ideas and inspiration. In other words, you don't have to worry that if you take one class with us, future classes will contain some of the same lessons. Never!

Caring Community

Blogging Your Way offers a caring, considerate community where students share ideas, organize meetups, offer their services and encourage each other, not just within class but also in real life. We offer various forums during class and after class has ended, and an additional private Facebook group where current students can keep in touch but also where they can meet and interact with students from previous classes. Our forum on the class site is where students can also interact with their teacher daily to ask for help on any lesson we've taught.

Our teachers are seasoned pros in their field, many of them award-winning creatives and bestselling authors. Each e-course is unique, no two are alike. Fresh, relevant lessons are important to us. All materials are specifically created for each class so that the teacher's expertise is reflected in all lessons. We pride ourselves in providing insider knowledge that's both current and easily applicable. Join us to learn about blogging, social media, photography, marketing, branding, writing and coming soon - decorating!

Just don’t give up trying to do what you really want to do. Where there is love and inspiration, I don’t think you can go wrong.

Ella Fitzgerald

Social media and blogs are proven ways to share your creativity and business with the world effectively and fast - if done right. It doesn’t matter if you share quick updates on Twitter, your latest project on Instagram or heartfelt thoughts on your blog, the way you communicate matters. We will teach and empower you to use the most current tools available to your greatest advantage. Our motto is to always use your blog as a catalyst to live your best life. Blogging in any form can improve your quality of life, increase your joy and, of course, can be profitable for you, your family, and your business.

If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself.

Henry Ford

Blogging Your Way is focused on providing students with a solid education that is effective and fun but additionally, we provide bloggers with a built-in community through our site. Teachers and students interact in our private, secure forum and after class ends, you can stay connected with our large global student base. Students are encouraged to ask questions, exchange ideas, offer their services, and plan local meetups. Many of our students meet in our e-courses and become friends, some even collaborate on projects together. We put the community back into blogging.

Grow

As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.

Audrey Hepburn

We offer proven techniques in our lessons that professional bloggers and influencers use to be successful along with personal life lessons designed to save you years of struggle and stress. We teach from experience because our teachers have all been working in social media and blogging for many years and know the business inside and out. Each class has a weekly homework assignment that encourages students to exchange feedback, learn together and share their progress with both students and your teacher. We provide fresh ideas to keep your brand current and desire to help you see results because your success is our success.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How do your e-courses work?

Our e-courses are self-paced yet provide a classroom-like experience by encouraging and fostering communication between students as well as teachers.

New lessons are posted Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays by 11:00 AM European time. Students are notified via email when new material is available. To access lessons students need to log in to the site with the username and password created at registration.

Lessons consist of written materials and podcasts, videos, screencasts, cheat sheets and live chats with the teacher.  Students are encouraged to print and download all lessons for future personal reference.

What do I need to take your e-courses?

  1. We support desktops (PC or Mac) and mobile devices. As our lessons tend ot be content rich we recommend using desktops when possible.
  2. We recommend using Firefox, though any current browser will suffice.
  3. A digital camera since most of our e-courses cover photography tips and techniques (your smartphone camera will suffice for basic assignments).
  4. If our classes are specific to Instagram or another social media site, you should have an account first to get the most out of our lessons.

Do I need to be online during specific days and times?

No, you do not need to be online during specific times to access class material. You will automatically be notified via email once new material has been posted.

Please note though that we do not offer bundled downloads. We discourage students from logging in on the final day only to download material. Your best experience will be to actively participate in class.

How much time should I invest each week?

We recommend spending 3 hours weekly reviewing all material, which posts Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. All lessons can downloaded as PDFs, videos and podcasts can also be downloaded.

We also issue a weekly homework assignment, which is not mandatory though. However, the more invested students are the greater the benefits.

How long will class content be available?

All our classes have a start and an end date, clearly indicated at registration.

Once class ends content will be available for an additional two weeks. After that, all content will be removed and no further access will be possible. We therefore urge prospective students to ensure they are able to participate during the dates posted at registration.

Will I be able to meet other students in class?

Yes, you will. You are invited and encouraged to participate in our private forum. You can ask questions, get support, plan meet-ups in your city (or attend them), share homework, interact with teachers and more!

After class ends you can continue networking with classmates and former students in our members-only Facebook group, too.

Will I get direct feedback from you about my blog specifically?

Feedback is only provided for specific homework assignments. Beyond that teachers will not be able to provide individual feedback.

Our classes are structured so that upon completion you don’t need professional feedback – you are able to look at your blog or social media account and know exactly what needs to improve.

What can I expect to accomplish by the end of the e-course?

We promise to provide you with the best and most current education for bloggers out there delivered in an encouraging, inspirational and positive classroom environment. We'll give you access to our teachers and fellow students during class so that you can get the help that you need, when you need it. You can download any of our lessons for future reference, too.

What you get out of class has a lot to do with what you put into it. If you connect with students, ask questions, do some of your homework assignments and view all of the lessons that you think apply to you, then you'll be amazed at how much you will be able to learn in mere weeks - an education that would take you years to learn from reading books or simply through blogging on your own, trial and error. If you apply what you learn, there is no end to what you can do or become online.

How do I register and pay for a class?

We only accept payments via PayPal as our registration system depends on PayPal transaction information. However, you do not need to have a PayPal account, you can transmit payment directly via credit card, wire transfer, etc. Instructions are provided by PayPal at checkout.

If you've never registered before, here's a quick overview of the registration process:

  1. Upon payment PayPal will redirect you back to Blogging Your Way. If you do not get redirected within 10 seconds please click the link at the top of the PayPal page.
  2. Once you are back here you will see a confirmation with a Button/Link to create your account. Create your account by choosing a username and password.
  3. To ensure you can complete your registration (e.g. PayPal didn't redirect or other mishaps) you'll also receive an email with a unique link (valid for 48 hours). However, this link will be invalid if you've already created your account.

Do you issue refunds or transfers if I enroll but decide to cancel?

As per Terms & Conditions all sales are final and no refunds or credits will be given once class starts.

That being said, we do consider extraordinary circumstances that may prevent students from participating. However, students need to inform us prior or while class is in session. Any requests after class ends cannot be considered.
