It’s official, The Blogcademy is a whirlwind. A giant, turquoise, glitter infused whirlwind! I am so pumped today because I have some news that I’ve been struggling to keep in for weeks. I’m glad I finally get to let rip and share it with you today!
So the big news is that our London class this year has already sold out… and it’s not until July! Insane. So, we’ve decided to add a second date, the weekend before, on July 19th and 20th. Again, it’ll be taking place at the beautiful Curtain Road Studios (I know we shouldn’t have favourites but…) Just click here to register.
After many cries from our Facebook page for another East Coast date, we’ve also added Washington DC to the mix. We’ll be there on October 4th and 5th. None of us have ever been to the city before so we’re super excited to explore! Again, you can register here.
And finally, because it seems like FOREVER until we’re teaching next, we’ve decided to do a FREE live broadcast from Palm Springs on Sunday 9th February at 11am PST/ 2pm EST/ 7pm GMT!
You might think that teaching three workshops in three weeks would be enough, but not for The Blogcademy! In between our two Melbourne classes, Gala, Shauna and I flew to New Zealand for our final location of the year. Our venue was Generator, a super rad event space in downtown Auckland.
Having mini films of each city on this trip made was so awesome. I’ve loved reliving these moments since!
This might have been one of the smiliest classes so far…
…and the best dressed!
“I read numerous comments stating ‘you can find everything you want to know about blogging/monetizing by simply googling it, or you can just ask fellow bloggers, as some have been doing this for ages’. The truth is, I’ve done a tonne of research on all these things (all the not-so-basic blogging questions), and have been blogging for years myself, and I’ve never found the information I needed (not the super-important stuff anyway) from Google or from just asking around … At Blogcademy all your questions are answered, and nothing is taboo – this for me was golden!! I guess what I’m saying here is if you are thinking about attending Blogcademy and are told that you can just get that info anywhere – my personal opinion is that you can’t and the wisdom I gained, made Blogcademy totally worth attending!” – Angie Fredatovich
When we launched our 2013 Blogcademy world tour last March, we were blown away by how quickly the tickets started to sell, but no city was as fast as Melbourne. Within only a few days the class had sold out and so we made the executive decision to extend our trip down under and add a second date to the mix – and I’m so glad we did, Melbourne was one of my favourite cities to teach in all year!
The classes were held at the beautiful Lightdrop Studios. Alex and Bernice who own it were a dream to work with and made our time with them stress-free, nothing was too much trouble. And when, a few days before the class, we were contacted by ABC News wanting to interview us (you can watch it online here!) Bernice, a trained make up artist, even offered to do our faces – what a babe!
“Everything you’ve ever read about The Blogcademy is true. It does change your life. You do walk away feeling overwhelmed with excitement and inspiration. It is totally fucking fabulous. Gala, Kat and Shauna are just as magical as you think they are. And they have the capability and drive to match the exceedingly gorgeous sparkle that seems to trail behind them wherever they go.” MJ Valentine
