Elite Blog Academy


Do you want to what it really takes to earn a full time living from your blog?

As a full-time blogger, I know all too well how overwhelming it can feel to juggle the day-to-day demands of writing a blog with the big-picture strategy of creating a profitable business.   While Living Well Spending Less has grown to become one of the largest personal finance websites on the net, currently receiving more than a million visitors per month, this wasn’t always the case.

Not so long ago it was just one small blog among many, and I was struggling to keep up.

After I wrote my book How to Blog for Profit (Without Selling Your Soul) I was flooded with requests from bloggers who wanted more.  The book was a great start, but they wanted more in-depth information and concrete action plans for everything from building a platform to maximizing their income. I began consulting on a limited basis, but I found that my already jam-packed schedule just couldn’t keep up with the demand, and as much as I love mentoring & helping other bloggers, I had to start turning people away.

I hated that.

I decided instead to combine all the secrets of my own success in one comprehensive course, and Elite Blog Academy was born.

Friends, I cannot even tell you how excited I am about this course!  I am not kidding when I tell you it is life changing.  Through a powerful combination of effective videos, practical and insightful handouts, and purposeful assignments, Elite Blog Academy will empower, enable, and inspire professional bloggers & communicators to take the specific steps necessary to transform your blogs into a successful and profitable business.

While much of the information available about blogging and internet marketing is written only by those whose audience consists of other bloggers and marketers, Elite Blog Academy is different.  It shares proven, field-tested strategies for building a successful, profitable blog, regardless of the niche and no matter the target audience.  In other words, this is the course I wish someone would have written for ME when I started blogging.

It is possible to create a successful business from a blog, and in Elite Blog Academy, I share exactly how it’s done, step-by-step.

And in fact, I am so sure that this program works that I am willing to put it in writing and offer a 200% money-back guarantee.  Anyone who completes the course and has not seen measurable results in both traffic and income growth will get double their money back, no questions asked.

You’ve literally got nothing to lose.

Elite Blog Academy is currently full.

    Hi Ruth, I’ve just come across you and you’re site today. Someone yesterday suggested that I purchase your book off of Amazon which I did. Although I’ve only just started to read it I can tell already it gives huge value.

    My blog is 10 months old and I am just starting to monitize it now. I write about saving and make families money without scrimping on life. A bit similar you to I suppose (on a much smaller scale though!). Anyway I’ve had some great success and it’s lead me to secure regular columns with both local and national press in the UK.

    Today is the first time I have visited your site and I must stay I am extremely impressed. I will be devouring the content here and in your book with the plan of growing my income so I can provide a great life for my family.

    I am also really looking forward to finding out more about your elite blog academy

    Thanks for everything you do.

    – Ricky

    Hi Ruth,

    I recently started a blog about the city of Manchester. I aim to provide information about events, entertainment, food and drink, student offers and basically everything you can think of about Manchester.

    I bought your book from Amazon recently and have been blown away at how eye opening it is. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it so far, and have been both inspired and motivated to drive my blog’s progress forward in the best way possible.

    I wanted to say thank you for such an awesome blogging guide, and I’ve just signed up to be notified when there are some spaces available on your Elite Blog Academy.

    Thanks again.

      Hi Phil! I’m so glad to hear you are enjoying my book! It sounds like you are really motivated and I think you will LOVE Elite Blog Academy! The next class will be starting in the spring but keep an eye out for a special holiday promotion–we will be sending out an email soon! :-)

    I am a new blogger, seriously considering the Elite Blog Academy. Do you recommend this for new bloggers, or should I wait awhile and get more content on my blog? I feel like I have a good start on my blog and some good content, but I can’t seem to tap into social media to promote it. Thanks!

      Just in case another new blogger is reading through these comments, thinking about taking Elite Blog Academy, I am going to answer my own question. I signed up for EBA, and I am going through the info much more slowly than people who have already been blogging for awhile. However, they are all complaining about having to go back and update, while I feel like I am able to learn how to do it well from the beginning. There are many days when I am terribly frustrated because I do not get very many page views at all, but going through EBA lets me know what the next step is, what I need to do better, that there is hope. So, I think that EBA is great for beginning bloggers who are serious about blogging.

    I really would love to go through your blog academy course but I just can’t afford it. Maybe next time.

  • Cheri April 20,

    Hi Ruth, I am so glad I found your blog! I can’t afford the Elite Blog Academy right now but I did purchase your book “How to Blog for Profit”. I received it yesterday and I’m already 1/3 through the pages. Great information!

    I received your book and read it today! It was very helpful. As a new blogger on my own site (have been on HuffPo for several years), my instinct is to simply give content and freebies to help women for at least 6 months, which you seem to confirm!

    Question: what do you think about periscope for writers/bloggers?

    What is the best conference you recommend for new bloggers?
