Create and Collaborate for Good
This is a post about a course I’m offering. If you are not interested in courses or blogging, I recommend skipping this post and instead reading some of my favorite simplicity finds this week.
Everyone else, please continue….
The next round of The Goodblog Project begins on August 20th and I am excited to announce that there are two options. One is almost completely self-study and the other includes one on one time with me through phone or Skype sessions and email chats. Instead of another boring sales page, I thought I’d answer a few questions that might be on your mind about the course.
Goodblog Project F.A.Q.
I don’t have a blog yet. Is this a good time to start the course? No. This course is best if you’ve been blogging for a few months or even a few years. If you are starting something new and want to work with me individually, I’d love to work with you too.
What will this course really teach me? All of the content is listed on the sales page, but in terms of big picture lessons, you will learn how to grow your readership, generate revenue from your blog without resorting to spammy advertising, and learn to do it simply and honestly. You’ll also learn to develop new projects, focus the direction of your blog and discern what is most important. If you’ve been overwhelmed with blogging information and want to know what you REALLY need to know and what doesn’t matter, you will love this course.
What is a good blog? Very simply, a good blog helps people. A good blog inspires, entertains and informs people.
Do you have any feedback from other bloggers that have taken the course? Here is some of their feedback. You can see more about what they had to say by clicking on their names.
- “My blog traffic doubled during the course and I really pinned down the mission of Low Impact Betty.” – Monica
- “The Goodblog project hasn’t simply helped my blogging efforts; it has changed my entire way of thinking about my life.” – Beverly
- “Courtney provided fantastic support and coaching to me personally throughout the course. From the one-on-one calls and the webinars, a new idea emerged for me which is now in production. My existing blog became more focused, my twitter following increased and my blog followers slowly grew.” – Sonya
How long is the course? The course is delivered over 4 weeks. You’ll have ongoing access to the materials so if you need to take things slower, that is just fine.
If I have a full-time job, will I still have time to take the course? You can structure the course around your schedule. You can access the material anytime. Most of the course members from the first session have full-time jobs and other obligations.
What If I can’t attend the live webinar? The webinars are recorded so you can watch them at a time that works best for you.
How can I connect with the other members of the course? There is a private Goodblog Facebook Group so you can interact with other members and ask me questions.
Will you run the course again? I’m not sure. I hope so because I love it, but it will depend on your interest and other projects.
How available are you during the course? Because the course is limited to 20 people, I am really accessible. Skype, phone, email and FB are all part of how we will communicate.
What if I can’t pay you in advance? I do require a deposit to hold a space, but am flexible in terms of payment plans. Let me know what works best for you and I am sure we can make it work.
How do I sign up? There are “buy now” buttons on the sales page, so you can reserve a spot by purchasing there, or by contacting me directly to arrange a deposit.
When will you close registration? August 19th or when the 20 spots are filled. Whichever comes first.
What if I still have questions? Call me.
View all the details on the sales page. You’ll find specifics about the content, pricing, and structure of the course.
