That’s what happened to me as a result of completing Rachel MacDonald’s Bright Eyed & Blog Hearted (BE&BH) course.
When I was searching for an online course to help me get back into blog and writing mode, I discovered BE&BH.
I enrolled thinking I would focus on building a personal, creative blog and ended up going with my instincts and building the foundation that is my business blog and website today – A Glittering Soul.
I came into the BE&BH course with extensive knowledge of web development from nearly 15 years working in the digital industry. I’d had several attempts at personal blogs which had never really evolved into what I hoped they would be.
It wasn’t until I co-authored my book A Faster Future did I truly feel comfortable with my own writing abilities. I wanted to start my blogging journey from scratch and this time around I was determined to leverage my skills and focus on creating a blog that I would truly love.
The level of detail in the 8 week course curriculum and professional quality elevates the BE&BH course. Building a successful blog requires vision, planning, strategy, authenticity, great writing, quality content and consistency. Simply getting a domain name and choosing a theme is the tip of a big iceberg.
But here’s the beauty of BE+BH. You’ll cover those basics and then learn about all the different aspects of blogging with practical tools and resources. There’s also a truly gorgeous community of like-minded bloggers in a Facebook group who you can share the journey with and cheer on, along the way. Rachel’s care and attention to her tribe and her generosity is admirable.
From a personal perspective, I thoroughly enjoy the process of developing a blog and website I truly love. With A Glittering Soul, it’s an extension of me. I poured my heart and soul into it and I found my voice by trusting my instincts and connecting my passion for personal development, coaching, digital, design and developing content.
I relaunched my coaching business and since blogging have written two guest blog post this year plus a soon-to-be-published feature article for one of my favorite magazines. I’ve also written and designed my first eBook, a 33 page guide to help other female entrepreneurs with their blogging efforts: The A-Z Guide to Soulful Blogging – Expanded Edition.
BE&BH helped me to clarify my direction and inspired me to take action. If you’re thinking of starting your own blog or refining your existing blog definitely check out BE&BH. There is lifetime access and the third round starts soon.
