New Tour Date: School of Rock (n Roll Bride) – Sheffield

Today I’m a little bit over excited (and a big bit nervous) to announce the first 2012 School of Rock (n Roll Bride) workshop. On Wednesday March 21st, Gareth & I will be hopping on our tour bus and driving aaaalll the way up to Sheffield, and I hope that 20 of you would like to join us!

The 4 hour workshop (1.30pm-5.30pm) is being held at the fabulous Chimney House. From the feedback I received after the last two workshops, I’ve decided to make the classes longer and more interactive. There will plenty of time for questions and if you’d like us to, Gareth & I are more than happy to go through people’s blogs individually and give you some personal feedback.

The workshop is about blogging (duh), or more specifically how to craft and write your blog so it’s perfect for you. My aim is for the attendees to leave with practical tips on how to improve their blogs as well as a bit of inspirational OOMPH.

Most of the topics discussed will have relevance for anyone who has a blog, whether you’re wanting to be a professional blogger, someone who blogs to support their business (i.e. you’re a wedding photographer/stationer/caterer with a blog) or you just want to blog for fun! The course isn’t specifically aimed at people with wedding-related blogs although most of the examples (and secrets!) I share will probably be related to the wedding industry.

The course is broken into the following components:

1. How I started Rock n Roll Bride and built readership (and tips on how you can do the same)
2. Finding your own voice and showcasing your personality
3. Knowing what to blog about and finding inspiration
4. Leveraging social media
5. How I turned my blog into a full time business, advertising and how to make money from your blog
6. Branding and thinking about yourself as a brand
7. Dealing with the not so nice bits of blogging
8. Plenty of time for your questions

The workshop is limited to just 20 attendees and I promise, there are no stupid questions! I’ll even have Mr Rock n Roll Bride on hand to answer any of the more techy queries.

Tea, coffee and some tasty treats will be provided and after the class, I’ll be booking a table for us all to go have dinner and drinks together which I hope you’ll join us for (not included in the price).

The cost of School of Rock (n Roll Bride) is £99 and you can book your place by clicking the Paypal link below.

  1. I would love to come to this, especially as it’s where I live (the Chimney House is fabulous too – we’re considering it as a wedding reception venue). I can’t afford to pay the full amount right now so may have to wait and see if there are any spaces left nearer the time. If I don’t get to make it I hope you have a great workshop and that you love Sheffield as much as I do. Corinne x

  2. Hey Kat!

    I am so excited about this, I just went to pay and realised – I’m away on honeymoon on the 21st! Woops!
    Can’t wait to hear when the next one is, will book in right away.
    Best of luck with it all x

    Hey Kat, I’m so pleased that you’re doing this again this year! (I really want to start a destination wedding blog for fun myself as I am getting married in Jamaica this year but have NO idea where to start although I have stalked you a little on your You Tube videos!) Hopefully you will be doing a workshop in the South? I live in Southampton and Sheffield is a liiiittle too far to go… Jess xxx

  6. Hey Kat, I’m so excited for you – this is fabulous news ! Will you be posting a schedule of the other tour locations & dates for the remainder of the year ? I can’t wait to attended a workshop near me !

    Hey all. We hope to do more this year in diff locations around the country will just depend on how well this first one does before we book anything. Defo hope to do one further down south next though! Thanks for all the support and interest!

  8. I would really love to come to this.
    I am a little shy and can feel myself already being a little breathless with sweaty palms at the though of travelling all the way to Sheffield and walking into a room of folk I don’t know.
    You don’t bite do you?

  9. OMG – you’re running a session in Sheffers…..think may have to find time to come back to my uni city & learn from you……you’ll love Division St…..if Cow is still on West Street, that shop is amazing too 🙂

  10. Natty – I promise I don’t bite but if you’ll allow me I might give you a cheeky hug! I’d love you to come and met new friends. And PS I promise I’ll be the most nervous in the room! So please don’t bite me mkay? Lets make a deal…

  11. Woohoo! I have just booked, I am very excited about this, have been trying to decide and my partner finally just transferred some money and got me to book it (he is lovely).

  12. I hope I won’t be the only non-weddingy person there! I’m coming from a general blogging perspective though I am seriously considering photography, but still not weddings, I’d be too scared! Can’t wait to meet you all.
