Thrifty Thursday {Week 69}

Thrifty Thursday Square

Happy Thursday!  I hope you are all having a fantastic week!  Those of you who follow me on Instagram may have seen that yesterday I spent all day filming for some upcoming projects I am working on.  One project in particular is one I think many of you will be very interested in, and I can’t WAIT to tell you all about it!

When I first started blogging I looked and looked for a resource that would tell me everything I needed to know, step by step.  I couldn’t find it.  Last year I wrote my book, How to Blog for Profit (Without Selling Your Soul), because I wanted to answer all the questions I was getting from others who wanted to know how they too could earn a living through blogging.  And while the book is very helpful, there were a lot of bloggers who still asked for more.

And so Elite Blog Academy was born.

Through a powerful combination of effective videos, practical and insightful handouts, and purposeful assignments, this life-changing course will empower, enable, and inspire you to take the specific steps necessary to transform your own blog into a successful and profitable business.  Doors will be opening soon, but enrollment is limited.  Be sure to sign up here to be notified when registration opens!

    I like the idea of “not selling your soul” It can be easy to get lost in the blogosphere 🙂
