The Blogcademy: New York City!

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!!!!

Ever since launching the School of Rock blogging workshops I’ve been inundated with people asking if we might take it over the pond (American readers I love ya!) So when I was in NYC in May I spent many an evening chatting over the idea with Ms Darling. We started wondering if we could do something even bigger and better than School of Rock – to combine our years of blogging experience to create a truly one-stop blogging (work)shop. And Nubby… hell, Nubby is epically awesome with branding and graphic design (she designed my site and she created the Rock n Roll magazine in it’s entirety!) as well as being the perfect example of someone who successfully uses her blog to support her design business.

And so the idea was formed and The Blogcademy was born. We were to pull together a two day masterclass for bloggers, right in the heart of the most exciting city in the world. Covering anything and everything you could possibly want to know about blogging, branding and running your own business, this will be a weekend to remember. We promise truckloads of learning, laughing, photo ops, sugary treats and homework assignments you’ll actually want to complete. As Blogcademy headmistresses we promise to be unshakably honest, to give away all our secrets and to be full of sparkle at all times.
