Everything I wish I'd known before I started blogging professionally
Whether you're just starting out in blogging or have been going for a little while, you already know there is so much to learn. It's becoming more and more popular now to start a blog and you know you can make money, but how?
I've been blogging for 4 years now and when I first started I wish I'd had someone on hand to help teach me the basics, plus let me in on the secrets that seem to shroud the blogosphere. How do some people always get their work shared? How can I review products and get sponsored posts? How the heck do I find the time to blog when I have a family, a dog, a husband and possibly a job? Can I really make a living blogging?
I would really like to be that person for you. Share my knowledge all in one place, and really help you supercharge your blog into the business you want it to be. Whether that's making extra money or a full time income, there really are no limits. Get the traffic you deserve and streamline your process so you're not chasing your tail the whole time. I'm no millionaire but I am earning consistently from my blog and it's only going up.

If you have any questions I'm happy to answer.
I am a Mum to 3 children aged 9, 8 and 4, plus I run my own blogging business so I know a thing or two about being busy! I have managed to maintain and grow my income for the last 4 years since starting my blog and I'm at the stage now where I want to share my knowledge and secrets with you. I see so many new bloggers struggling and not knowing what to put their energies into - believe me I've been there. It's only in the last year that I've really honed everything, streamlined and worked out what is best to spend time on. I have put a lot of effort and time into making this course super useful, no fluff, and it will really help you. Any questions feel free to ask.
