Blogging Your Way e-course: Intention & Style
I'm so excited to announce that we've opened registration for our mega-fabulous upcoming Blogging Your Way e-course called "Intention & Style". I'm 26 weeks pregnant so this is the last class I'll be doing until next Spring, so catch me now before I begin nesting! :) For this online class, I've asked Photographer/Stylist Naomi Robinson from Bakers Royale and Better Homes & Gardens along with Lisa Nieschlag, who is a stylist, graphic designer and cookbook author with her fourth title releasing in January to be my very special co-teachers. (Psst: Lisa also helps produce these really great food recipe videos with her partner, Julia.) Our e-course will focus on INTENTION as a blogger and will motivate you to really fall in love again with blogging in case you’re currently in a rut because let's face it, we bloggers can get into ruts. We'll also focus on STYLE because c'mon, the blogs most of us love have a specific style and really put a lot into their content right? So we're going to help you to learn how to take professional-looking photos of crafts, interiors, food and more that you'll be proud to share online and we'll cover photo editing along with loads of styling how-to's so you can style your photos in a way that gets your posts a lot more pins and social media shares.
In this online course we'll cover:
Blogging Topics Include: How a successful blog is created and maintained, staying strong and true to your brand and vision, growing your audience (in a new way), how to make money as a blogger, pricing your services, why "free exposure" isn't enough and how to demand payment when companies approach you to work for free, what's hot in blogging today and what we predict will follow, how to turn your ideas into actions, how to outsource, working with others (including your competitors), how to deal with difficult people and situations such as blogger privacy issues and we'll even include a case study to examine top blogs and why they work. Plus, we'll include a bunch of bonus tips and ideas as we go so you're head will be a-buzz with new and fantastic ideas that you can put into your blog today.
Styling & Photography Topics Include: Taking photos from set up, composition and styling to shooting bright, shooting dark & moody and post editing. We'll also cover camera settings and talk about aperture, exposure, exposure compensation and white balance for natural light, artificial light and for mixed lighting. In addition, we'll explain macro photography and show you how to set up and the capture details of smaller objects from floral arrangements to tiny finds from the flea market. Another topic we've included is photo editing and how to process Raw files using Adobe Lightroom 5. You can use a cloud version of this software via the Adobe website for Free for a 30 day period. For the styling portion of our class, we'll take you from A-Z from how to choose a theme, location ideas, prop selection, planning your shoot day and how to to set up a room like a pro along with setting up vignettes or objects on a tabletop, food styling how to's and more.
