Five online courses to better your blogging skills

Hello Blogger.

I want to always be one of those people that wants to keep learning, and I encourage others to do the same. I love discovering new things and letting them soak into my brain. I’m sure if I ever attended University I’d probably still be there learning things. Actually, strike that. I’m not that into learning.

With blogging I love reading, and asking questions, and doing online and in-person courses. The landscape of blogging will always be changing, and I think it’s important to not get stuck and to keep on being open to learning new things and changing the way you do things.

Today I wanted to put together a list of courses that you can do to keep on learning. These courses are available online, so that you can do them from where ever you are. Some I have done myself, some I haven’t {if you have, please let me know in the comments what you thought of it}.

I did this one last month and I can not even begin to say how brilliant it is. But I’ll try… it’s REALLY super, so very brilliant. It’s more about creating graphics, tweaking your photos and making things beautiful. I put off doing this course for a while, and I actually don’t know why. I wish I’d done it sooner. You will need Photoshop to do the course, but you don’t need to even really know how to use it.

The only downfall for me was that once you start watching it you only have 48 hours to finish the course, and I would have LOVED to have gone through it twice to really make it all stick in my brain. To make the most of your investment, I would say you should own a Wacom Tablet to use for your graphics {every blogger should have one anyway! I have this one, and it’s perfect for my needs} and 48 hours of nothing to just immerse yourself in the course. Really, truly worth doing. Read more about it here.


Blogger Boss // AU$399

A lot of course focus on the blogging side of things: content, social media and everything that goes with writing a blog, but very little focus on the technical side. Doing that stuff yourself, without knowing that you’re doing, can be a dangerous adventure and paying someone to constantly tweak things can be quite an expensive ride. Blogger Boss focuses on the technical side and teaching you how to do those tricky things. I haven’t done this course, but I sure am thinking about it. Read more about it here.

cant-crop-thisCan’t Crop This // US$85

If you are feeling a bit stuck with Instagram and want to know how to build your brand {yep, you’re a brand if you’re a blogger} and grow your audience, this is a course for you. I have purchased the course, but haven’t had time to do it yet… but it looks good. I love everything Studio DIY does, so I’m sure I’m going to love this too. Read more about it here.


Bloggers MBA // AU$497

If you want to know all the juicy secrets to growing blogging into a serious business, then this is the course for you. You’ll be given tools to make blogging happen for you, plus access to a supportive and encouraging community. Read more about it here.


Bright-eyed & Blog-hearted // AU$397

If you like to do things with heart and soul, then this is the blog course for you. Rachel is the most beautiful person, and I haven’t done this course, but I just know that she would put her all into it, and then a bit more. Everyone I know who has done this has loved it. Read more about it here.

And because I know someone will ask…
