Blogging Boot Camp, done through Sassy Suite is well worth it! If you are going to do it, that is, in my opinion, the only way to go!
Blogging and Sassy Suite
Blogging and Sassy Suite go together like peanut butter and jelly, or maybe cake and ice cream! Sure, you can have one without the other, but it would be missing something somewhere along the way. Yes, it is pricey…or seems to be…but for what you get! It’s a no-brainer!
I knew, in the back of my mind, that I really, REALLY wanted to do Blogging Boot Camp! My mind was made up, and I was determined I was going to sign up when the time came! Then I saw the price! Sticker shock! So, what did I do? I went in to WordPress, started my own, and wrote 5 articles! Wow! Right? Wrong! In so many ways, that was the wrong way to go. Let me explain!
Why doing it on my own didn’t work.
Maybe YOU could do it on your own, but I couldn’t! I had absolutely no idea what I was doing! When you go in to WordPress, you get to pick a theme! What’s a theme? i looked at o many different ones, I just picked one and jumped in. Don’t get me wrong! There are a lot of options, and good ones at that, but since I had no idea what I was doing, that’s exactly what. It looked like!
But, I went ahead anyway! I wrote those 5 big posts! Yes! I’ve got this! No, I didn’t! I did not have a single view! None! Nada! Why? Because I didn’t have a clue! I knew nothing about SEO or submitting to Google or Yahoo! Or Bing! For some reason, I thought I could just start writing and be on my way to being discovered!
After 3 months, I gave up! Mindset is everything! I got a “why bother” mindset, because why bother when no one was going to see it anyway! But I still wanted to do it! Well, it turns out that I needed help! Enter Sassy Suite again, with the announcement that Blogging Boot Camp was being released again! YES!
I was ready this time! Right?
NO! Again, the price got in the way! There was no way I could fork over that much money for something like this! But, where there’s a will, there’s a way! So I worked my behind off to try to come up with enough money to justify doing it! My reasoning was, if I had enough money saved up by the release date, I was doing it!
Initially, there was only going to be one price point…..which was beyond my means! Then it was announced that there was going to be 2 different versions, standard and premium. Of course, you do get more with premium, which is why the cost is higher. I can’t speak for premium, because I went the standard route, but it WAS WORTH EVERY CENT!! Trust me on this!
What do you get?
Blogging Boot Camp is exactly what it sounds like…..boot camp! You get 8 weeks worth of guided information to be able to set up, design your own site, and take it “LIVE”. The videos in each course show exactly what needs to be done and how to do it! It is also self paced, so no need to worry about falling behind everyone else! There are 4 themes to pick from in standard, plus 4 additional ones for premium! Luckily, I only had 4 to pick from, because I had a hard time narrowing it down out of 4!
It was such a joy watching it all come together! And it’s all mine! Yes, I had help, but I couldn’t have done it without their help and guidance!
But let me back track for just a second! I was so excited to sign up! Then reality set in! What did I do? What if I can’t do it? How am I going to come up with ideas for writing, when I only did 5 in three months time? Well, there is even a video dedicated to that subject alone! Was I still scared? Yes! Petrified! But I did it, and I am so glad I did!
Blogging Boot Camp – Is It Worth it!
YES! YES! YES! And YES! I think you’ll be glad you did it, if your heart is in it completely! It is work, and there were times I wanted to give up, but that didn’t happen! If it had, you wouldn’t be reading this post right now!! And yep! I can wear this button with pride!
So go ahead! Check out Sassy Suite! Prepare for the next Blogging Boot Camp release! And if that time doesn’t work, maybe the next one will! There are plenty of other courses to pick from there, too, so if blogging isn’t in your plans, maybe there is some other training that does fit! Enjoy!
