Mother, wife, blogger, children’s book publicist, freelance writer, Etsy store owner, person who is trying to get into shape… I wear many hats and for me that means one thing. There are never enough minutes in the day.
Blogging is fairly new to me. I launched Sew Creative in January so it’s less than 7 months old. The blog has come leaps and bounds in the first 6 months but as a blogger I’m learning new things every day. I would LOVE to attend a blogger conference one day but jetting off for a weekend hasn’t been in the cards for me as of yet. I just haven’t had the time.
I am busy. Between our vacation, blogging, parenting and getting ready to go back to work next week from maternity leave I haven’t had a chance to take the entire course yet… but that is the beauty of this program. You can access it online, in your own time, in the comfort of your own home, in front of your computer.
I don’t know a single blogger that couldn’t benefit from taking The Blog Workshop Conference.
Yesterday afternoon I decided to tackle learning more about SEO for my blog. As I was taking the online course I loved that I didn’t have to furiously take notes, trying to catch every single word, trying to remember every single point that the speaker made. Because it is an online program I was able to pause and tackle things on my blog one step at a time, rewind if I missed something and most importantly I was able to walk away when the baby woke up from his nap and come back to exactly where the conference had let off when he went down to sleep for the night.
I’m not the most tech-savvy gal but I was installing plugins, signing up for SEO webmaster tools and submitting sitemaps like a crazy girl! If I missed a step, all I had to do was rewind.
The workbook that The Blogger Workshop provided was also really helpful to have on hand.
I want to thank the speakers for sharing their expertise and wisdom with us and the sponsors of the conference for making it happen. It’s a pretty amazing world that we live in to have this kind of information at our fingertips.
