WEEKS AT A GLANCE:
WEEK 1: Course Intro and Buckets!
Take this week to look through the course overview and set aside time in your calendar for the next four weeks to work through the course materials. Then, begin thinking about your “blogging buckets” and narrowing the items in them down to your niche topic.
WEEK 2: Idea Generation
Use the monthly idea calendar, blog prompt list and content generating slides to brainstorm a list of possible blog post entries. You will also explore the ideas of guest blog posting, interviews and affiliate marketing through your blog.
WEEK 3: Time to Write!
Use the blog post template to plan and write a bank of 6 - 10 blog posts. Once your blog is live and ready to go, you will use these posts (and the calendar templates provided) to plan a consistent and sustainable posting schedule.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR: Amanda Zieba is a self-proclaimed word nerd and has been so her whole life. In her opinion back to school supply shopping should be a national holiday because she certainly finds fresh notebooks and new pens a reason to celebrate. After a dozen years in public education, she now teaches writing part time at the college level, writes educational materials for a cultural connectivity company and most of all enjoys making up stories for the enjoyment of readers of all ages. She is the author of eleven books, with more on the way. She has visited schools and book clubs and lead writing workshops and retreats in four states across the Midwest.
COST: $80, which includes 4 workbooks and 3 Google Slideshows (with embedded videos).
