Come to Our Last Ever Blogcademy Live Classes and Get the Online Course Absolutely FREE!


In September we’re rolling up the turquoise carpet and calling time on the current format of the live Blogcademy workshop. Since we launched the class in 2012, we’ve taught over 1000 people, all over the world. From LA to London and New York to New Zealand, we’ve travelled more than ever and met so many inspiring blogcadettes. However we’ve collectively decided that it’s time to refocus our energy and put it into coming up with something new!

On September 12 and 13th we will be in San Francisco and the weekend after, September 19th and 20th we’re in New York – where it all began!

To go out with a bang we have a very special offer for you. For one week only, anyone that books into these final classes will also receive The Blogcademy Online, the digital version of our course worth $497, absolutely free!!

While the teachings in this class are exactly the same (the video segments were recorded at a live class) you get extra worksheets and prompts, plus you get access FOREVER, meaning you can watch and re-watch the lessons and do the homework as many times as you like! You’ll receive the course after you’ve attended the live class meaning if you were too overwhelmed to take in all the info over the weekend, or you forgot to take notes on something important, you’ll be able to go back and watch the lesson again. Amazing right?

When my two best friends and I decided it might be fun to teach a blogging workshop back in 2012, we had no comprehension just how far that little idea would take us. We figured maybe we’d get to do one or two classes and it would be a fun new project for a few months… Well, over 1000 attendees and 30 workshops later, its been one hell of an incredible ride!

Last month we did our 6th (SIXTH!) class in London.

Long Haul Films slayed it with this video. They’re also currently offering £200 off wedding videos for Rock n Roll Bride readers so be sure to check them out!

As ever, we held the workshop at the gorgeous Curtain Road Studios in Shoreditch. We love this space so much because it’s big, bright and pristine white… but that doesn’t last for long after we arrive!

It’s My Birthday and I’m Giving *You* a Gift!

Yay it’s my birthday! Although I do feel really bloody old now. I’m THIRRRRTYY freakin’ ONE! OMG I’m totally ancient.

Although this time last year I was definitely struggling with the thought of leaving my 20s behind, the past twelve months have been awesome (hello! I now have a magazine in actual shops!) Nothing actually really changes the older you get, does it? I mean, you’re still you. You still have complete control over what you wear, how you act, and what you do. I have no plans to dye my hair a more respectable colour or to stop dancing in sequins on beaches!

But I digress.

To celebrate the start of my thirty-second year, I wanted to give YOU all a gift by taking a whopping 50% off the price off The Blogcademy Online!

For those of you that don’t know, The Blogcademy is a blogging and business workshop that I’ve been running with Gala Darling and Shauna Haider since 2012. In January this year we launched an online version of the course which is perfect for those of you that can’t travel to an in-person class, or just prefer to learn at their own pace. You can read all about that topics that we cover on our website.

Out With The Old, In With The New: The Blogcademy is Having a Spring Fling!


Last Friday was officially the first day of Spring so I can think of no more perfect time to have a little digital spring clean. That’s exactly what we are doing at The Blogcademy. We are currently working on a whole host of brand new digital and live course offerings (so exciting, just you wait!), and so the time has come to clear the decks to make space for them.

As of this coming Sunday (29th March) The Blogcademy Home School – our short, sharp, pick n mix video lessons – are going the way of the dodo. So today we are saying goodbye with a bang and offering them at half price!

Take Charge of Your Blog, Your Business & Your Life with The Blogcademy Online!


Do you dream about being your own boss, calling the shots, and never being told what to do? Do you want to live and work wherever you please? Are you desperate to be creative, to speak your truth, to find your tribe, to create something meaningful… and to get paid for it?

I did too, and since starting Rock n Roll Bride my life has completely changed. I’ve won awards, been interviewed on television and radio, and been featured in magazines such as Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire and Grazia. I’ve been profiled by the BBC, flown to Australia on an all-expenses paid trip, and become editor in chief of my own magazine!

It might sound like I struck it extremely lucky, but that actually couldn’t be further from the truth. Sure, there have been joyous moments of serendipity (and lots of hard work!) in the past seven years, but the long and short of it is that anyone can do what I’ve done.


Everyday my inbox is flooded with questions from budding bloggers and entrepreneurs. From not knowing where to start, to wondering how to earn money from their passion, and everything in between. In fact there probably isn’t a small business or blogging question I haven’t been asked!

It’s questions like these that were the catalyst for The Blogcademy in-person workshop. The idea was dreamt up by myself, Gala Darling and Shauna Haider over dinner in Las Vegas in early 2012 (and unbelievably this was the first time we’d all been in the same room together!) Our first class took place in October of that year and since then we’ve taught nearly 1000 people, all around the world, how to use the internet to take their businesses to the next level – and beyond!

However the more classes we did, the more cities we flew to, the quicker it dawned on us… We had to think BIGGER. With an in-person event, there’s just no possible way for us to reach every single person that wanted to attend. Everyday we’d get requests for classes in really small cities, or emails from people who couldn’t commit to two full days away from home. We’d receive desperate messages from people saying they missed the class in their town and would we come back. We physically couldn’t keep up.

This is precisely why we’ve created The Blogcademy Online.

You can now take the full Blogcademy workshop from the comfort of your very own home. The course is broken down into short videos of between 10 minutes and an hour each. You can either watch the whole lot in one weekend, or spread them out and dip in and out when your schedule allows. The course also includes accompanying worksheets, activities and a 300 page transcript of the entire thing!

So what exactly will you learn?

The internet is a crucial tool for building and sustaining a successful business. The fact of the matter is that if you don’t know exactly how to use it your bottom line will suffer. While there is no one-size-fits-all technique that will guarantee your that your idea will flourish, there are some very definite do’s and don’ts.

We’ll give you the essential formatting basics to make sure your blog looks its best, and then we move straight into creating a blogging business plan to help you work out exactly where you want to go. We’ll assist you in discovering your ideal reader, as well as writing a killer about page, and solidly defining your blog’s purpose. We cover everything you need to know to create killer content, discuss the importance of consistency, show you how to use social media for great results, teach you how to network (without feeling like a sleaze!), and give you a big branding rundown. We do a case study of The Blogcademy, answering the question, “How did you teach over 1000 people in just two years?”  We’ll show you how to compose and shoot great still life photographs, teach you all we know about blog advertising, give you the skinny on brand collaborations, show you some business documents you’ll need, discuss diversifying your income — with guest posts, media coverage, digital products, and publishing — and show you how (and where!) to find great images you can use on your blog.

Yes, it’s a lot of information but your purchase will give you life-time access to the course meaning you can watch and re-watch the lessons as many times as you like!
