I have learned so much and am very happy with the progress I’ve made on my blog. I’ve already got my first paid photo engagement as a result of my blog, and I wasn’t even trying to! Unbelievable. Thank you!

You’ll walk away with a stronger focus for your blog, several published posts and a handful of drafts, a theme that reflects your personality, a small (but growing!) audience, a grasp of blogging etiquette — and a bunch of new friends.

As in all Blogging U. courses, you’ll also have access to a private site, The Commons, where you can connect with other participants, share your work, and get support from WordPress.com Editors and Happiness Engineers.
