In November 2013, Lana from Lanaloustyle and myself hosted the first ever BLOG BOOT CAMP in Cape Town. We had realised that there was a need for a blogging workshop in Cape Town and decided to host our very own! And it was such a great learning experience for us, we met such wonderful bloggers, received lovely feedback from the attendees and had quite a few enquiries about another one, so we thought it was probably time to host BLOG BOOT CAMP again! So, come June we will be hosting the second BLOG BOOT CAMP in Cape Town!
The world of blogs can be quite a daunting one to someone who is just starting out and we know that there are so many questions related to building and beautifying a blog. The BLOG BOOT CAMP workshop is aimed at teaching you all the ins and outs of blogging and to inspire you to grow your blog whether it’s just a hobby or part of your small business.
The goal of BLOG BOOT CAMP is to give bloggers the tools they need to run a better, more successful, and creative blog. The course will cover tips for creatively improving the design of your site, how to use social media to promote your blog, how to monetize your blog by working with sponsors and advertisers and finding your unique blogging voice. The morning will be filled with practical information and inspiration to help you to build a better blog and spark your creativity!
You will receive an invaluable Resources list and there will be time for Q&A and networking during and after the event.
