Blog Tips

The Media Maid’s Blog Academy


Let me teach you how to smash it in Blogland. Let me show you all the tips and tricks you need to take your blog to the next level.

All over Blogland, you can find advice, help and tips, but nowhere can you find all the information you need to take your blog to the next level…

I have been blogging since 2006. I am now a full-time blogger who has turned my hobby in to an income earning business. I was awarded Kidspot’s Top Blogger in 2012 and have worked with some of the biggest brands in Australia {like IKEA, Adairs, Masters, Ford…}. You can read all about me here.

This is my passion – blogging. And I am going to teach you what I know. This course is for beginners (you need to have a blog and know how to use it at a basic level) to intermediate bloggers. Maybe you also have a twitter account & a facebook page, but would like to know how to use them to their full potential?

Each week you will be sent content and video to help you grow your blog. I’ll give you tasks to complete and you can do as much or as little as you want depending on what appeals to you the most. I estimate you will spend about 2hrs a week reading over the content and watching the tutorials.

Start today. Grow today.

This is an online course. You can start today! You can do this at your own pace.

Learn strategies to use on your blog and social media platforms immediately.

By the end of the course you will be able to:

Understand and use Google Analytics.
Create social media buttons and ‘advertise here’ for both blogspot and wordpress.
Edit photos and place text on images.
How to use Facebook and Twitter better.
Create a media kit.
Dazzle your audience with a good ‘About Me’ page.
How to host giveaways.
How to get subscribers.
How to use mailchimp to create a newsletter.

Frequently asked questions:

What happens when I sign up?

Once payment has been made you will be emailed details to a google drive where you will find the course information.

When does the eCourse start?

Whenever you are ready!

How will the eCourse be delivered?

The course will be delivered via a google account (which I will guide you to) with access to lots of videos with me talking you through topics and PDF’s. The course will run for 6 weeks and each week will be released on a Monday. The content will remain live for a few weeks after the completion of the eCourse so that you can refer back to it often.

What if I have questions during the eCourse?

Happy to help! Email me any time.

How much is it and how do I pay?

The cost of the 6 week eCourse is $249. I accept payment via Paypal or direct bank deposit.

    Most of the TVs have some sort of visible lighting on the edges when in dark rooms, however,
    the visible backlighting on this TV is fairly minimal and poses no distractions.
    It has an excellent matte screen surface to help reduce glare, and the picture quality is
    amazing with very deep blacks. 5 mm inputs which provide permanent connection to the computer and personal music

    Both the Wii Pistol from Penguin United and the Wii Zapper make a great
    stocking stuffer and cost very little for the amount of
    fun and enjoyment they will bring to your little, or big, gamer.
    These i – Pod stereo accessories are sometimes more exciting than the i – Pod itself, do yourself a
    favor and read all the way to the end – there’s an amazing set of speakers down there.
    Azera has a 112-inch wheelbase, with an overall length of 193.

    transitions between rear-wheel drive (RWD) and AWD with no
    driver intervention. You can run many applications on this TV, among other Netflix so you can watch your favorite movies.

    Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most
    blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.

    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
