The Blogcademy New York: A Quick Recap
October 22, 2012
I’m currently lying in bed in my East Village apartment (well, I wish it was mine!) with Nubby the day after the first ever
Blogcademy. It’s 7am and we’re both bolt upright excitedly gabbing about the events of the past 48 hours. It was a weekend of magical, unexpected, positivity and excitable exhilaration. Loving, learning and inspiring each other – all in our own imitable fashion. I feel mentally exhausted and my feet hurt like hell but it’s oh such a good feeling. Our 30 attendees were just what we hoped & prayed for and more, and I honestly feel we’ve all made some new BFFs for life.
I fly back to the UK tomorrow (BOOOO!) so I’ll be sharing a full report and announcing the next date and location (!!!) as soon as possible, but for those of you who haven’t been bored to hell & back with our incessant instagram & twitter updates, I hope you enjoy some of my fave photos from this weekend. You can see more at the #theblogcademy on both instagram & twitter!
So, where should we take The Blogcademy next?

I've been throwing the word ‘whirlwind’ around a lot lately, but goodness these past few weeks have really been one! I've strolled around the streets of Manhattan, danced with a disco ball, made custom lipsticks, got a crazy Japanese glitter manicure, found my perfect wrist candy, had a coughing fit live on the internet, hosted a lunch date with our past students, eaten a tub of popcorn larger than my head, posed on velvet couches on city block corners and got locked on a rooftop... and that was just in the first few days!
We did two Blogcademy classes on this trip and I'll be blogging all about the Minneapolis adventures soon, but today it's all about my favourite city in the whole wide world - New Yaaawk!
Behind the Scenes at The Blogcademy
November 1, 2012
"I know this sounds crazy, but I really feel like The Blogcademy is going to be a massive game-changer for all three of us," Gala said to Shauna & I the morning after the workshop, "and I really hate that phrase..."
But you know what, I think the girl might be onto something.
A heady mix of nerves, anticipation and excitement seeped through my trip to New York this month. Lisa & I had a few other things planned, but we knew our visit was concluding with the biggie. Organising this event was a labour of love and a project of passion - squillions of emails flew back and forth over the course of just a couple of short months while Gala, Shauna & I planned every last detail whilst thousands of miles apart.
The Blogcademy Down Under: Melbourne
November 30, 2013
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 Blogcademy World Tour & Live Online Q&A!
March 19, 2013
Sometimes you have a little crazy idea but you just know you have to run with it. The butterflies in your tummy tell you that you're onto something exciting and pretty darn life changing. That's just how I felt when we came up with the The Blogcademy, and its exactly how I'm feeling today as I'm here to tell you that we're announcing a world friggin' tour and an online Q&A livestream!

We’re Bringing The Blogcademy to… LONDON!!
November 14, 2012
Cor blimey guv'nor, it's true! We're off to London-town for the next instalment of The Blogcademy madness and we couldn't be more excited!
It didn't take much persuading, but I've coerced Gala & Shauna into hopping on a plane to do the next Blogcademy workshop on my turf. To say I'm excited is a HUGE understatement. Come on Britain, let's show these international playgirls a good time! Shauna has never even been to the UK... I can't wait to get that gal in a black cab, by a red phone box and eating fish n chips. Lisa & I managed to get her drinking tea in New York, it's only a matter of time until she's a fully fledged Anglophile!
Sixty Students, Four Days & Three Very Tired But Happy Headmistresses Later…
September 23, 2013
It's hard to believe that in just under a year The Blogcademy has taught over 300 women (and a few token men!) about blogging and how they can conquer their corner of the internet. When we first launched the workshop we thought we'd meet some people, teach them some stuff and that would be about it. Never in our wildest dreams did we imagine just what an impact attending this two day class would have on the attendees lives... and ours!
The Blogcademy: New York City!
August 20, 2012
Isn't it amazing when a plan comes together? In the weeks running up to today's announcement I've been literally seconds away from tweeting my excitement and giving the whole game away. In fact anyone that knows me 'in real life' will be well aware about how rubbish I am at keeping secrets. Like... literally terrible. I actually don't know why anyone would ever tell me anything because I'm the first person to accidentally say "OMG you will never guess what I just heard..."
Which is why it has been utter torture for me not to scream this from the rooftops I'M GOING TO NEW YORK AND DOING A TWO DAY BLOGGING WORKSHOP WITH GALA & NUBBY!!!!
Phew... that felt goooooooood. You'll have to excuse me for being so damn uncool about it all...
