So, I quit my job the other day. You know, the one where I was doing consulting and whatnot from this blog. Scary stuff. But I had a really good reason.
2015 is going to be a year of community ’round here, and I’m skipping out on doing anything but develop that community.
So, what will I be doing with you?
- Developing free content on this blog, per the usual, for us to discuss.
- Creating products for bloggers, independents, artists + shop owners (I’m loving having another Etsy shop up and running–more stuff coming soon–but I hope to develop products that help other sellers).
- Continuing work on a secret project that will help other creatives.
- And finally (+ very excitedly), going through a solid year of loving on my blogger buds through a series of #50Workdays. Allow me to explain.
Over the past year I’ve come to see that many of us have four types of questions + stages when it comes to our creative presences online. In 2015, I am breaking those stages down and developing guidance, resources, and real life examples for small groups of creatives to go through together. Each quarter of the year will be broken down into sets of #50Workdays (so, Monday through Friday for 10 weeks straight–but you can work on the weekends if you’re unable to get everything done during the week).
Stage 1 (First Quarter: Jan. 12 – Mar. 20)
Question/stage: How do I go from zero to blog? Literally, what’s the first step? and the second? and the third? I want to build an audience from scratch. I want it to be for realsies.
Program: Instead of me simply telling you what I’d do if I was starting from scratch all over again >>> I’ll literally be starting a blog from scratch with you and showing you EXACTLY what I do, offering tips, giving feedback, and taking you through a guided process of starting a blog that grows an audience and gets traffic.
You, and I, and 24 of our new friends will all be starting blogs, supporting each other, and learning the concepts of design, content, community, and strategy that helped me get byRegina.com to over one million pageviews per year. (More details on Q1 below, because it’s open for application now.)
