Do you sometimes feel like things just ‘happen’ for a reason? That somehow you are meant to ‘stumble’ upon something or someone who, unbeknownst to you, will make an impact in your life? Well, thanks to a conversation with my mom, I learned about Ruth Soukup, an amazing and inspiring woman, after reading her book, “How To Blog for Profit Without Selling Your Soul.” My mom had read the Kindle version and insisted I purchase the paperback. I was hooked — Ruth’s book was a page turner for me. After reading her book, I wanted to learn more and stumbled upon Elite Blog Academy. My timing was perfect–it was the end of 2015 and I learned that in a few months, Ruth’s class which opened only once a year would be opening its doors again.
Fast forward to 2017 and let me tell you, I would not want to navigate the fine art of blogging any other way! Below are some of the highlights of my ongoing journey:

  1. Blogging truly is an art and is not for the faint of heart! In addition to writing pillar content, bloggers must also master the fine art of creating eye-popping graphics. [Note: I am still working on both!]
  2. Finding one’s niche is not easy. I started out with grandiose plans, a self-hosted site, Genesis framework and custom child theme for a blog about studying abroad, but kept drifting back to my previous blog, www.allthingsrelax.com. I’ve finally accepted that it’s ok to move on (www.getyourdegreeabroad.com, rest in peace) and focus on what I want to write about.
  3. Reworking my blog blueprint and writing pillar content with FOCUS (thanks, Ruth!) is like a phoenix rising from the ashes. The timing couldn’t be better with the upcoming launch of EBA 3.0 and the advent of spring!
  4. Accepting that I am not and cannot be an expert in everything. I am fortunate to be in a Facebook group with an EBA cohort. Cognizant of the time suck that Facebook can be, I check in sporadically and learn a lot from other EBAers.
  5.  Lifelong learning and continuous improvement are a must for successful bloggers. B. B. (Before Blogging), I dismissed Pinterest as a social media platform, thinking it was only for DIY crafts and recipes. I have since realized that Pinterest ‘is my friend’ and FINALLY ventured into the worlds of Board Booster and Tailwind in my quest to become an effective ‘pinner.’
  6. I am not perfect and that is ok. As a recovering Type A personality, I truly rejoice in reading the emails I receive from Ruth because she has the courage to share her vulnerability up close and personal — well, virtually, that is! (hmm, speaking of vulnerability, I just had a flash back to ‘story teller,’ Brené Brown’s Ted Talk!)
  7. Building an email list is important. This is my top priority for 2017 as I work on my site redesign (as Ruth would say, Crush those goals!)

Whether your an aspiring blogger or an ‘old timer’ with millions of page views under your belt, you will learn a ton about the nuts and bolts of blogging from Elite Blog Academy–not just how to build the blog, but how to grow a business so that you can stay at home (if that is your goal).

Since 2014, Elite Blog Academy has been field-tested by bloggers just like me. The program is designed to get results, and it does.

In fact, it even comes with a 100% money-back guarantee, which means you’ve literally got nothing to lose.

But don’t wait!

Enrollment for Elite Blog Academy only opens ONCE a year, for five days only. If you want in, you’ll have to act fast!

This year, the doors officially open on February 27th, but EBA founder Ruth Soukup is offering a free training series the week before called Blogging Made Simple that I highly recommend!

You can get registered for this free training HERE.

Still not sure if blogging is for you? Take Ruth Soukup’s EBA Assessment to see if you have the mindset to be a blogger! You too will realize that sometimes things just happen for a reason!
