Blogging genius?

Blogging is still an ever-growing field, despite the rise of other forms of social media. I still prefer blogging, the feeling of publishing my own little web magazine. But the size and scope of the medium can feel overwhelming at times, especially in terms of learning new systems and methods, and just simply trying to get people to read your blog.

I've created a few blogging tutorials in the past (and hope to do so again too) as I find understanding more about how blogs (and the web) works gives me more control over how I can say and show exactly what I want to here. Understanding and learning new things has always mattered a lot to me and my tutorials allow me to consolidate that new knowledge.

And much of my knowledge of blogging has come from other bloggers. By reading their blogs and learning how, and why, they do things the way they do, and what encourages me to return to their blogs. And also by indulging in blogging courses and books. I say 'indulging' but I've actually found the courses I've done illuminating and helpful and this is why I was a little excited when I heard about this bundle of courses and eBooks which is on sale for the next few days.

The list of eBooks and courses available is long. It includes 24 eBooks, 33 eCourses and audios, and 5 printable packs. I've linked to it linked to it here, which is where it is also available to buy, and the variety on offer seems to me to be exceptional. And the cost isn't 'giveaway-cheap' at $97 (which, at time of writing, translate to around £79 - do check currency rates before you buy though, especially if you're in the UK) although the individual cost of all the courses included adds up to something like £3,000, which, I have to say, is a small fortune. £79 is far more reasonable and is quite a saving if you're interested in a few of the courses. The list on the selling site, called Ultimate Bundles (they do a few of these type of offers throughout the year), shows the normal selling price of the courses and books, so you have a clue as to how much you could save.

None of the books or courses are about making or selling jewellery, or any other kind of craft, but several of them cover photography which is always a topic that fascinates me. The focus of the courses is more on blogging itself, how to make your blog work better whatever your reasons for having it, as well as figuring out Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, Snapchat - basically all kinds of social media (which seems a never-ending and forever-changing topic in itself!) and how they can help your blog, and the technical side of blogging - HTML, CSS, SEO, all those letters that are both scary and, for me at least, quite fascinating.

If you think it might be right for you then do click through, or click on the image above, and have a look at more detailed information. The bundle also comes with a 30-day guarantee. It is only available at the reduced price until the end of Tuesday 1st November, at midnight in the USA although, if my very-rusty understanding of the time difference serves me correctly, we in the UK get an extra 7 hours till it ends. If my understanding of the time difference is wrong then please let me know!

I hope this is of some interest to you, especially if you're looking to improve your blog and social media presence to showcase your jewellery or crafts.

(PS. If you do click through then a video starts auto-playing - just a warning in case you're somewhere you'd rather that didn't happen!)

Please note, this post contains affiliate links, which cost you nothing if you click through but may make me a few coppers if the stars are right that day... For more info check out my about page.
