So You Want to Start A Book Blog

I think there’s a common misconception that blogging is hard, complicated and super technical. While some of these things are true (it takes a ton of work!), others are not. If you’re passionate about something…cough cough BOOKS….then blogging is an amazing way to find new books, receive advanced copies of books from publishers and – most importantly – become involved in the fun-loving community of other book bloggers.

My husband has started a new venture that I’m helping him with – it’s called Start Blogging Now. It’s a 6-week training course that teaches people the basics of blogging. It’s something I’m really excited about doing because I think so many hardcore readers want this outlet but aren’t sure how to get started.

Start Blogging Now

The Start Blogging Now course includes 6 video lessons and weekly conference calls to talk through any questions participants may have. The best part is that you don’t need ANY technical knowledge. I had to learn the hard way, but you don’t have to.
