Get Your Blog Into Shape for 2018

Have you ever thought that blogging is harder than it looks?

You want to have a value-packed blog that readers love. You want to share your ideas and expertise – and maybe make some money too.

But … you struggle for ideas. You procrastinate over every post. And no-one’s reading.

Are you ready for that to change?

Eight Week Ecourse

During this eight week course, I’ll teach you how to structure different types of post, how to get the most important pages on your blog right, and how to beat procrastination forever.

What People Have Said About Blog On

I have found Ali’s work to be consistently useful and this course is no exception. The course takes you step by step, through what you need to do to write good, solid blog posts. I have admired Ali’s writing for a long time and have often visited her site to get inspiration about how to write or structure a post so it is great to go “behind the scenes” and learn more for myself about writing excellent web content.

Jen M. Smith

You will not just learn how to create different types of blog posts.  You will also learn how that same knowledge can be applied again and again for bigger, better and longer pieces. You see Ali isn’t just thinking about her students whilst they are in her course.  She is thinking about how her students can use the same knowledge in two months or two years time.

Ainslie Hunter

In every module, every single day, Ali completely overdelivers. There is nothing out there that even compares to the level of professionalism and comprehensiveness to Blog On. If you want to learn how to write blog posts that get accepted at A-List blogs, posts that get noticed in the blogosphere, and posts that you can be proud to have in your portfolio, Blog On is the course you have been looking for.

Here’s What Each Blog On Module Includes…

Module 1: Blogging Ideas: From Your Overall Goal to Individual Posts

begins Mon 13th Nov

  • Knowing what you’re aiming for – understanding what blogging can do for you, and setting goals for your blog
  • Choosing (or refining) your blog’s topic – what should you write about in order to achieve your goals?
  • How to generate ideas for your blog – different tips and techniques to get your mind into gear

Module 2: How to Write a How To Post That Readers Will Love

begins Mon 20th Nov

  • What makes a good “how to” post – so you don’t waste your time writing something that your audience doesn’t care about
  • The importance of the three-part post structure: introduction, main body, conclusion – by getting this right, you draw readers in, keep them reading, and make sure they stick around at the end
  • How to come up with the steps of your post – you’ll learn three different methods for this, so that you can find out what suits you best
  • How to format each step of your post – because this makes it easier to write, and easier to read

Module 3: Your Contact Page: Clear, Concise … and Crucial

begins Mon 27th Nov

  • Understand why a contact page is important – and learn what to call it and where to place it in your blog’s navigation
  • Learn what to include on your contact page – so that it’s easy for your readers to connect to you in their preferred way
  • Write and structure your page – with a contact form to encourage readers to engage with you

Module 4: How to Write a List Post That Delivers Real Value

begins Mon 4th Dec

  • What makes a good list post – so you can brainstorm some powerful ideas that will resonate with readers
  • How to use the three-part structure for list posts – the introduction and conclusion are still crucial to “frame” your list and to get your readers to take action
  • How to brainstorm list items – you’ll be able to pick from three different methods, so you can use whatever works best for you
  • Why order matters, and how you can impose it on your list – so that your post will stand out above the crowd (most bloggers don’t think at all about how to order their list items)

Module 5: Your About Page: You, Your Blog, and Why Readers Should Care

begins Mon 11th Dec

  • Get to grips with your About page – the most-read page on your blog, and the hardest one for most bloggers to write!
  • Develop a clear mission statement – this will help you to get readers’ attention, and it’ll give you some guidance for future posts
  • Learn what to include on your About page – so you deliver the information that readers are looking for, and you establish a personal connection with them

Module 6: How to Write a Link Post that Curates Great Content

begins Mon 18th Dec

  • How to come up with a focused and manageable idea – so you can deliver value to your readers without spending the next four weeks hunting down links…
  • Several great ways of opening your link post – it’s important to add a bit of “you” to your post when you’re mainly linking to other people
  • How to make your post useful for your readers – a collection of links alone can seem a bit bare-bones, so we’ll look at different methods for fleshing it out
  • Techniques for using link posts as a regular feature on your blog – this can boost your standing in your niche

We’ll have a week off at this point for Christmas! Then…

begins Mon 8th Jan

  • Taking basic post types further – learn ways to develop the “how to”, “list” and “link” post structures
  • Developing consistent structures – save time by re-using basic structures, such as for book or product reviews
  • Breaking down other writers’ posts – find and use great structures, based on posts that you’ve enjoyed yourself
