In November, I launched the beta version of my new blogging course, The Business of Blogging, and, after a few months of testing, it is now ready for prime time!

Today marks the official launch of The Business of Blogging, the blogging and business course offered by Superstar Blogging, my online media school. Stay tuned, because next month I’ll be launching photography, writing, and videography courses.)

If you’re looking to get into blogging or are an existing blogger looking to break out of that plateau and see large growth with your site, this courses features the step-by-step processes and methods I used to build my own website that will help other beginner bloggers grow their own, too. This course is a behind-the-scenes look at my blog, where I open the hood and show you exactly how it runs and how you can improve the ways you run your blog.

I know there are a lot of blogging courses out there promising to “teach you the secrets to success.” “If you take this course, you’re going to make it,” they scream.

I can’t promise you success. That depends entirely on you and your work ethic. But I can promise to provide you all the tools and smarts to build a website with the potential to be successful and leap above your peers.

There is a seemingly endless pool of travel blogs out there. Each day hundreds of people think “hey, I travel, so I’m going to start a blog and try make a living out of this.”

But, let’s be honest, most suck and fail within a few months. Whenever I go to TBEX, the annual travel blogger conference, I am always amazed at how many new faces there are… and how few returning ones I see.

Few bloggers make it past their first year. They underestimate how hard and time-consuming maintaining a quality blog is (you will spend a lot of time in front of the computer). Most give up. Many struggle on for a few years before eventually returning to the “real world” and an office job.

The common thread I see in all these failures is that most bloggers don’t spend the time honing their business skills or learning from mentors, networking outside their niche, or creating products that their audience actually wants.

They may know travel, but they don’t know how to turn that into a business.

That’s why this course is called the Business of Blogging, because unlike other travel blogging courses, I’m going to dive deep into the business skills you need to succeed.

I didn’t know anything when I started. I was just a traveler who self-taught through many failed efforts. I made mistakes. Big mistakes that cost me thousands of dollars!! But learning those lessons helped get me here to where I am today – owner of a blog with 1 million monthly visitors, $ 500,000 in yearly revenue, 3 employees, a best selling book, and a paid speaker at conferences. Here’s last month’s traffic:

I want to teach you how to get here too. There’s plenty of room in travel for all of us… it’s a 1 trillion dollar industry, after all! There is no reason why you can’t be successful as well.
