A complete blog writing course to help you Create, Connect, Share, and Inspire with quality blog and web content.
This online blog writing course is exactly what I needed 12 years ago. My success in blogging was made possible by the months and years of learning, attempting, tweaking, tinkering and trying every option possible. I guess you could say it was mostly trial and error.
When I decided to give freelance blog writing and web design a shot, I wasn't quite sure what areas of freelancing should get the most of my attention. Once I learned to get the focus off me, things started to progress smoothly.
This course is based on the cardinal rule of blogging:
"Successful blog writing requires that you write on schedule and that you always place your readers' interests above your own. "
This blogging course was designed to help you avoid the mistakes I made and bypass the many hours of research. That way, when you make a mistake, it will be a new one of your own.
This course will give you a completely new perspective on what it takes to fill a blog with high-quality original content. If you've been waiting to start blogging, but think you have to have some type of writing degree, it's time to get moving! There is really no degree required.
Anyone can start a blog, but only after mastering the building blocks for effective blog writing, can blogging be successful. Business blogging is about telling stories that inform, educate, or entertain a target audience. Content marketing is much more that just broadcasting information.
Quality web content writing is certainly not rocket science, but without the right amount of time, patience, and commitment, your blog or website may never get off the ground.

Great information.......Quality information in a short amount of time. Since I"m becoming a new blogger, I'm learning things that is going to help me get a good start.
If you want to watch a power point presentation, with no visuals, while the presenter reads the words to you--then this is your course! Or, if you want pdf documents that are interspersed giving meaningless platitudes and no examples--this course is for you! And I went to this guy's blog--and can't find any examples where he practices what he preaches.
Very good information for anyone who wants to be a blogger or for a business owner who wants to get more exposure. Mr. Bradford helped me understand the importance of blogging and how to write a successful blog. I added more information to my knowledge-base. Thanks Ken!
