Exciting free 4 week on-line blogging class! Basics to monetizing

{FREE} 4-Week Profitable Blogging For Beginners Class
Are you thinking of starting your own blog? Maybe you have one already and are wondering how how to make a bit of cash with it. Are you like me? A bit jaded about “free” classes? Most I’ve attended just give you a taste of what they sell in their ebook or whatever else it is they’re promoting and you come out basically with nothing but wasted time. I’ve been pleasantly surprised with this one.

Sure they have tutorials and services to sell, but the free class is really a class. You actually learn about blogging. It takes you from the basics of setting up a blog to how to make money with it. Here’s what you’ll get. For free:

  • ~~ A class manual – packed with 60 pages of information that will help take the overwhelming out of starting your own blog
  • ~~ A FREE year of web hosting.
  • ~~ Blueprints, step-by-step tutorials, networking with other bloggers – Everything you need to grow your blog.
  • ~~ Save yourself a lot of time, trouble, and money – learn from Tanya’s experiences what to do and not to do.

A new class is starting in July, so sign up now!
