If you’re like me, you’ve probably taken a few blog classes along your blogging journey.  

I’ve taken three workshops (i.e. 4+ weeks for each) and two mini workshops (i.e. 2 weeks each).  I can honestly say that I’ve walked away from each one armed with more knowledge and a few new blogging buddies!

While I am planning a post to talk about several of these, today, I wanted to focus on just one and it’s my favorite class to date!

Sarah Morgan is a blogging guru and if you haven’t visited her blog, XO Sarah, then after you finish with my post, grab a cup of coffee, head on over, and settle in for a ton of blogging goodness and inspiration.  

After you spend a little time on her blog, you’ll easily sense her love of blogging and her passion for sharing that love with others (just check out her post on Friday where she answers all of your blogging/coding questions!).

Sarah also happens to be the woman behind the Badass Babes Blog Club + e-Course!

I was in the January course and we just wrapped up a few weeks ago and like I said earlier, this was my favorite blogging course!  Taking this course was one of the best blogging decisions I’ve made!

What I LOVED about this Course

It’s 8 weeks of content.  That’s right…8 weeks!!  All of the other courses I’ve taken were either 4 weeks or 6 weeks.  With 8 weeks, we were able to cover a lot of content, but space it out enough so that it’s not overwhelming.  You have time to allow the concepts to sink in, percolate, and for ideas to start flowing before the next lesson comes out. 

Why is this good?  Because compared to classes that flood you with lessons 5 days a week, I got a lot more out of the content.  I was able to dive deeper into the lesson and within myself to come up with some really good stuff that still has me flying high!

Working on a worksheet for one of the lessons…

It makes you think. Sarah has a way of presenting the content and posing questions that really get you thinking.  Her lessons aren’t long in terms of a lot to read or long videos to watch, so you might not realize it at first, but if you take her questions and lessons to heart, it’ll start opening up doors within your mind allowing you to explore more ideas than you thought you had (and this, folks, FLOORED me!).

Sarah is very involved in the class. The Badass Babes Blog Club is accessible via a Google+ group.  I hadn’t really used Google+ much up to that point, so I didn’t know what to expect, but I really like that forum better.  It’s much more organized!  Sarah is very active in posting helpful articles and advice.  And, if you have any questions…and I mean ANY…about blogging, your blog, the class materials, you can ask it there and she (as well as the  other Badass Babe alumni) will jump in with answers, advice, tips, etc.

You get a personalized blog review.  That’s right!  Sarah will go through your blog and write up a review on what you’re doing right and suggestions for what you can do better.  This was one of my favorite features of the class!  I had been wanting to have a blog review and in researching it prior to this class, I found it to be in the neighborhood of $100, so this was a huge incentive for me when considering the class.  Sarah gave me fantastic feedback (which was right around the time I did my blog redesign).  I incorporating pretty much all of her suggestions and I’m still working on a few others.

Weekly LIVE Google+ hangouts.  Throughout the course, there are weekly Google+ chats with Sarah and your classmates.  They’re an hour long and they quickly became my favorite part of the class.  I think this right here is what really sets her course apart from others.  Sarah is open to any blogging questions…it doesn’t have to be specific to the lesson, which I thought was SO helpful!  There were several times I asked general coding questions for something I wanted to do on my blog and had no idea how to do and Sarah told me exactly what and how I needed to do it!

You’re in the Badass Blog Club FOREVER! And finally…after you finish the class, you are part of the Badass Blog club (for life!).  In ALL of the courses and classes I’ve taken prior to this one, when you finish the class, that’s it for interacting with the instructor.  Some allow the Facebook group to remain open so students can continue to network, but the instructor is gone.  Not so with the Badass Club!  As I said earlier, Sarah is active in the Google+ group and as alumni…so are you :).  AND…every other week, she has a Google+ hangout for the Badass Club members!  We talk blogging, life, food, etc.  Basically anything goes and I always keep my schedule open to attend!

What I GOT OUT of this Course

Sharper Focus:  I went into the class with a good idea of my target audience and a general idea of how I wanted to grow my blog.  But, I still felt like I had a lot of unanswered questions and I hadn’t quite figured it all out yet.  While I wasn’t floundering, I wasn’t exactly blogging with purpose.  

After taking the Badass Blog course this is no longer the case.  I know exactly who my target audience is and I know exactly how I want to grow my blog (I even have a 5 year plan…that wasn’t part of the class, but the lessons enabled me to get to that point!).

I had struggled in the past with coming up with a mission statement (which you need if you want to blog with purpose!).  After going through the first couple of weeks of lessons, when we got to this one, I was able to finally come up with a mission statement that was spot on (with Sarah’s help, I might add!).  Now, every decision I make regarding my blog is with that in mind.

100+ blog post topics:  Yes…you read that correctly.  When I finished the course, I had over 100 blog posts topics.  My editorial calendar is planned out for the next couple of months and I STILL have other topics on my list.  No more scrambling for ideas on what to write about at the last minute.  I have more topics to pick from than I would’ve thought possible!  And yes…this is a direct result of her Week 4 lessons.  It also taught me a fantastic process for continuing the practice of brainstorming ideas as I go forward, so I will never be at a loss for what to write about!

PAGES of blog topics!

A better blog design: Several of the things I’ve implemented on my blog in the past two months were suggestions by Sarah that I either wouldn’t have thought of, or I would’ve never figured out how to do without her help.  My blog is now better, stronger, and it just works.

Who Should Take this Course

This is a premium course and for those bloggers that are really serious about blogging and honestly want to do what it takes to get to the next level.  If you put the work in, you will get a lot out of it!

While I think anyone at any level would benefit from this course, I, personally, think it’s best suited for those that have been blogging for at least 6 months, if not longer (for some of the lessons, you review your posts from the past 6 months – 1 year).  She doesn’t go into how to set up a blog or other newbie questions, so, ideally, you need to be past that point to get the most out of this class.

If you’re serious about blogging and you’ve been blogging awhile and don’t know how to get to the next step, I can’t encourage you enough to take this course! Believe me….it is worth every single penny.

I want to take this class, where do I sign up!?

    This sounds like a really valuable blogging course. I think having an honest blog review would be wonderful. Especially from someone who isn’t familiar with your blog already. I’ll have to keep this course in mind. It sounds like it’s just what I’d need… Thanks for sharing!

    This looks great! I registered my email because I’m hoping to get more info (price). I definitely have so much to learn still :).

    This sounds awesome! It would be so nice to be able to get a review on my blog and get an idea of what I should change and do differently to improve. Thanks for sharing this course, I am going to look into it!

      Awesome! It’s really a great class and yes, the blog review was fantastic! I was a little nervous to see what she thought, but was happy to hear it was in line with how I was hoping it was perceived!

    I have checked out Sarah’s blog and really dig the whole vibe she has going on! I did explore the course options, but felt like at that price point I definitely need to get some more blogging experience in before starting something like that. Great to hear about your experience of it for future reference though! And I feel like the personalized blog reviews and being in the group forever make it worth the cost.

      Yeah, I think it’s great for those with some experience under their belt. I think you get more out of the class since she doesn’t go over some of the basics…it’s really about moving beyond and going to the next level. Definitely keep it in mind if/when you get to that point!! It was a definitely game changer for me :).

    Loved hearing your take on the class! My review should be going up tomorrow (hopefully, haven’t started on it yet)! It was definitely my favorite out of the two classes I took!

      Erica, this class would be PERFECT for you! You are definitely far enough in your blogging journey & serious enough about it to really get a lot of value out of it! Sarah is such a cool person and is so generous in sharing her knowledge and know-how! I hope you take it and become a fellow Badass Babe!! :)

    WOW You basically have me sold on the fact that she will go through and review your blog. I think that’s so important–to have a 3rd party come in and give you feedback! Great post, I will definitely be checking this out.

      says

      Awesome!! That was a huge selling point for me as well, and I was not disappointed. It was refreshing (and slightly terrifying!) to know someone would be taking a look and providing feedback, but such a rewarding process :).

    I’ve been thinking about this for awhile. I’ve come across Sarah’s blog a few times, and I’ve been interested. The thing that has stopped me was the price point and fear of not getting what I’m looking for out of the course. I’ve been slightly (& in some cases majorly) disappointed with what I’ve gotten from previous courses I’ve taken. ..for whatever reason – the pace is too fast for me to assimilate & implement, feeling like I wasn’t being heard or my concerns addressed (due to the size of the class), etc….which is not to say that I haven’t gotten something out of them. Just not what I was expecting or looking for.

      Hey Jen! I totally hear you! Pretty much all of the classes I’ve taken prior to this one had daily lessons M-F, which is almost impossible to keep up with when working FT. I try to catch up on weekends, but then I feel like i’m skimming over material just to keep up. That’s one of the things that was awesome about this one. Sarah only sends out lessons twice per week (Mondays & Wednesdays). And…they’re not super long reads or long videos. She keeps it right to the point. Coming from other classes where it was daily with long lessons to read or videos to watch, I was at first surprised and a little concerned given the price point, but after getting into the first couple of weeks, I saw the wisdom behind it. I was able to really dive into the lessons and implement the lessons so I got SO much more out of it! In the past month, my daily visits and pageviews have started climbing beyond my expectations and really think that’s due to the lesson where she had us brainstorm on blog topics. I came up with stronger topics than I do on the fly and I’ve been posting those and I think that’s really paying off! As for the class size…she maxes it at 30, but there were maybe 10 in my class, so it’s easy to be heard and she’s great at answering any question (even those not related to the material!). Email me if you have other questions…it’s definitely an investment and if you’re considering it, you want to be sure it’ll fit your goals and where you are! (vicky@randomlittlefaves.com)
