Tip-toeing around the idea of starting a blog? Itching to be heard but nervous about how to get started and find your voice? Got something under way but not sure how to sink into the traction you're looking for? Then I've got just the fix for you -- I'm thrilled be hosting Corbett Barr and Caleb Wojcik of Think Traffic, one of my tip-top favorite blogs, for an exclusive Start a Blog that Matters webinar in two short weeks.

What: Start a Blog that Matters Webinar -- exclusively for the Life After College community Topics: We'll cover 5 incredible case studies of regular people who became big name bloggers, 5 bloggers who earn over $1 million a year and the 9 essential elements of starting a blog that matters. When: Tuesday, May 1 at 6pm PT / 9pm ET Cost: Free! Register: Here
The three most common questions I get about blogging are:
- Technical - How did you get started? What platform should I use?
- Emotional - Do I have anything to say? I'm nervous...what if people don't like my stuff?
- Reach - How do I increase my traffic and connect with the audiences that matter to me?
When Corbett and Caleb asked if I wanted to host a free webinar for all of you based on their latest course, Start a Blog That Matters, I jumped at the opportunity.
This is your chance to get inspired, educated and get all your questions answered from the experts on the subject. They will be delivering ~45 minutes of insanely useful content about how to start a blog that matters, then will share info and take Q&A about the full course toward the end.
Why bother pushing through those fears to start a blog?
Building an online presence has changed and enriched my life in every single area -- confidence, friendships, business opportunities, cathartic self-expression and creativity -- and I know that it can have the same impact for you.
Deep down, many people know what they want to say -- or that they at least want to experiment with sharing ideas publicly -- but are intimidated about how to begin. A waterfall of inner critics comes rushing in to say you don't know what you're doing, you're not good enough, you're not a writer, etc. Fooey!
Starting a blog that matters is about finding YOUR unique, authentic voice, and having the courage to experiment until you find your online groove. Blogging is an evolutionary, growth-filled process -- no one expects you to be "successful" overnight. In fact, I'm of the strong opinion that you are successful just for trying and putting yourself out there -- no matter how many readers you end up with.
