A Blogcademy Brouhaha
January 23, 2013
No sooner had we wrapped the first London
Blogcademy, than Gala, Shauna & I were ferociously planning for the weekday instalment. We’re kicking off our second event today and we couldn’t be more excited! Reworking the presentation, tweaking our delivery and coming up with brand new ideas, we are adamant to make every session even better than the last. In fact we spent most of our ‘day off’ (i,e. day of shopping) stopping every five minutes to brainstorm. Gala scrawled musings on her Wagamama place mat and I sent Shauna more jam-packed emails full of notes than I think she really expected.
We all braved the freak London snow storm but the weekend was everything we hoped for and more. Thank you to all 30 of you for making (and surviving!) the trip.
But today is another day and we can’t wait to do it all over again with another 30 more of you little snow bunnies. Wrap up warm, The Blogcademy is comin’ at ya!
If you fancy casting your beady eye over more photos from the first London Blogcademy, check out our faves from the weekend on Gala’s Flickr stream . Let’s do this (all over again) London!

The Blogcademy London is Here!
January 19, 2013
Even though I've been to London a squillion times, there's something very different about being in the city with some friends who are seeing it all for the first time. Freaking out over old fashioned phone boxes, fumbling with our colourful currency and taking a trip to the shoe shopping mecca that is Selfridges. I also think Shauna nearly died and went to heaven walking into the Liberty stationery section.
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!
Vintage Furniture, 35°C Heat & Brand New Blogging BFFs
July 8, 2013
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.
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!
