If your friends and followers are always telling you, "You should really start a blog"...
If you've got a great Instagram account but have been afraid to take the plunge into blogging...
If you want to start a blog but aren't sure what to write about...
This is the course for you!
In this five-lesson mini-course, I'll help you hone in on what makes your Instagram account great and how you can get started blogging quickly and easily by reimagining content you've already created -- your successful Instagram posts!
Setting up a blog is easy. The idea of maintaining a blog -- and doing it well -- is the part that leaves many great content creators, influencers and creatives feeling intimidated.
I'm here to tell you that you don't have to be scared of blogging. And in this course, I'm going to help you get over those blogging jitters by focusing on the great content you already have at your fingertips.
This is not a tech-heavy or design-focused course. In fact, in it I'm going to encourage you to skip over a lot of the finer points of customizing and designing your blog. Instead, we'll work on blasting through the mental block that's keeping you from blogging.
When you complete your coursework, you'll have six weeks' worth of pre-written, scheduled blog posts ready to publish. And you'll do it all by working from the content you already know your audience enjoys.
