Thanks for joining Blog On!
This page is your handy one-stop reference, so you know where to find everything and you’ve got a clear idea of what’s coming up. Over the next eight weeks, we’re going to be covering four key types of post:
- How-to posts – which teach readers to accomplish a specific task
- List posts – which offer a number of different ideas, tips or techniques
- Link posts – which provide a round-up of interesting articles/books in your niche
- Review posts – which let readers know what’s worth buying (and earn you some commission too)
The focus of the course is on getting you to plan, write and publish posts on your own blog. Each of the four modules is split into short lessons which take you step-by-step through writing a specific post.
Note: You’re signed up to Blog On under your PayPal email address. If you’d like to use a different address to login and/or to receive the emails (which will alert you to new course content) then just let me know via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or the contact form, and I’ll sort it out!
I’ve set up a page where you can introduce yourself and tell me (and everyone else!) what you’re hoping to get from Blog On:
To keep things relaxed, we’re tackling one post every two weeks. On the alternative weeks, we’ll have a group update where I answer questions and critique two posts for the group to learn from, and where we can share success stories.
If you have the Gold membership, you’ll also receive three extra modules to help you create or spruce up a page on your blog.

You can find links to all the Blog On materials here on the contents page. If you ever get lost or can’t find a particular module or lesson, that’s your first port of call. (And if you’re still stuck, just contact me.)
There’s an assignment listed at the end of nearly every lesson, except for the final lesson in each module. You can also find a checklist of all the assignments (with links to the lessons) here:
Blog On: Assignments Checklist

To help you stay motivated (and, well, just for fun!) we’re having a prize draw at the end of the course. For every post which you complete and turn in on time, you’ll get one entry into the draw. You can find the full details of the prize draw here.
At the bottom of each lesson, there’s a comment section where you can leave questions, ideas or thoughts. I’ll be reading all the comments. Feel free to reply to other members, especially if you have an idea or answer which could help someone out.
If you have a question about a lesson, it’s useful if you post it in the comments – that way, other people can see the answer too. You can also contact me privately using the Blog On contact form, so that your message gets top priority in my inbox.
