Are Blogging Courses Worth It?

Are Blogging Courses Worth It?

A lot of my clients ask me are blogging courses worth it. They tell me that there is a wealth of information for free on YouTube and Google, so why pay for courses.

This is what I tell them…

You get what you pay for. If something is free then it’s very unlikely to provide as much value as something you have to pay for, that’s just common sense really isn’t it?

Quite a few of them have been saying that they have got out of the swing of it, or that they can’t think what to blog about now that they are about to get their days back.

Why I Became A Blogger In My 50’s

Clilck here to find out why I became a blogger in my 50's

Have you ever heard someone say they are a blogger and wondered what on earth they are talking about?

It’s funny to think now, but just a few years ago that is exactly what happened to me.

I was on holiday in the Caribbean and I saw 2 girls who did nothing for 2 weeks other than pose around the pool and hotel gardens.  I was fascinated by them.

The whole fortnight they were constantly changing clothes and donning hats and other accessories while posing in the most un-natural ways for the camera.
