Are you a beginning blogger who needs some technical ADVICE and strategic direction for your new blog? Do you feel frustrated with the PROCESS of getting your blog off the ground? Have you been struggling to maintain the focus and consistency it takes to see RESULTS in reaching your professional blogging goals for your business or career? Does it feel like NO ONE but your mom is reading your blog, even after all the hard work you’ve been putting into it?

If you answered “YES” to any of the above, I invite you to take my Blogging School Homestudy Course!

Allow me to introduce myself if we haven’t met yet…my name is Rosetta Thurman, creator of the The Blogging School Homestudy Course. I started blogging in April 2007 and could never have imagined the benefits I would reap as a young professional-turned entrepreneur. Six years ago, I was a NOBODY in my industry. No one knew who I was and I had virtually NO personal brand. But in 2007, I made the decision to just put myself “out there” and EVERYTHING changed for me. People began to invite me to their events for speaking engagements, hire me for consulting gigs and ask me to write for professional publications. I was even offered an adjunct faculty position at a local university!

The opportunities were coming at me so fast that I started using my vacation time to meet with clients around the country, earning extra income every year on top of my 9 to 5 salary. In 2010, I quit my job to become self-employed and haven’t looked back. I’ve also had the opportunity to publish two books! Today, my business is thriving with multiple income streams that allow me to use my unique set of skills, expertise and experience in combination with what I’m passionate about in life. Currently, I earn a living working for myself full-time as an author, speaker, mentor and coach.

But you know what?

If I hadn’t started my professional blog back in April 2007…I wouldn’t have the business or lifestyle I have today. My blog has been the #1 marketing tool that gets me invited to speak to audiences all over the country on the topics I write about on my site.

Since I started blogging, I’ve been awarded significant recognition in my career and business. I’ve been featured in numerous media outlets including JET Magazine, BBC London, The Washington Post, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Fox 5 News and The Network Journal. I’ve been named a “Top 25 Urban Entrepreneur to Follow,” ”Top 100 Most Desirable Mentor,” ”Top 25 Online Influencer in Leadership,” and a “New Leader in Philanthropy.”

My first TV appearance even came through my blog! The reporter found my site through a Google search :)

“But Rosetta…WHY does any of this matter?”

Because blogging was THE BIGGEST factor in helping me to launch my business and advance my career. And I want to show YOU exactly how to do that for yourself!

Hear Directly From a Blogging School Student About What She Learned in the Course…

Author and speaker Wilma Jones blogs about creating a happy life after divorce over at LivingHappierAfter.com.

Here’s What Other Blogging School Students Have to Say:

“This course has been a great experience on a lot of levels. Practically speaking, it was really “doable” in terms of the fee, work load, and pacing. In terms of quality, it was great value for the money, and I was really impressed with the level of detail with which you were able to address everyone’s questions, as well as with the authenticity, openness, and friendliness you bring to what you presented and how you presented it . . . and it just made them that much more enjoyable and real.”  - Melissa M., lapiana.org/about/la-piana-blog
“Before I took The Blogging School course, I was just blogging without a real vision for what I wanted to do. The biggest thing I learned in The Blogging School was the importance of creating your brand and using your brand to get yourself out there. Now my career is taking off as people are contacting me for speaking engagements, consultation and general information on how to effectively interpret the enslaved experience at historic sites and museums. My blog is not perfect but it constantly gets better with the information I gained from The Blogging School!” – Nicole M., interpretingslavelife.com

I’ve designed this program to be useful to those who are just starting their blogs as well as folks who have been blogging for a while, but want to professionalize their current blog presence.

“I have found your tips on setting up a blog and focusing on one thing you are passionate about very helpful. My blog had already been in existence for 4 years, but I used your tips to change its name, restructure it and focus more on the arts and culture reporting, rather than including random photos of places and cute pets etc. Within weeks of restructuring, I was contacted by the producer of a tv travel show who had come across my blog in her research of arts events in Las Vegas. As a result, a film crew are here this week to interview me, film my artwork, and I will escort them to some cultural events and galleries. Thank you so much! - J. Russ, jorussfotodiary.blogspot.com
