I recently put together a free email course called Blogging 101: The Ultimate Start Guide for Blogging as a Side Hustle.
My course, Blogging 101, spans 7 days and each day has a different topic. We talk about the best hosting, how to pick a domain name, the best tools and plugins you’ll need, and why WordPress is King. We go over the best tools to use for graphics, best free and paid resources out there, and how to start a blog if writing isn’t actually your “thing”. Plus, so much more. I’m not entirely sure how I fit it into 7 days, honestly!
But through my research, I found several other free courses out there that can help you discover your niche, focus on a particular stream of income, and teach you things like taking your own photographs. They teach you how to get more sign ups to your email list, and a bunch more. All of these courses are very useful, especially if you’re just getting started. I absolutely recommend you try some of them out. Not all of them; you don’t want to get overwhelmed. Pick one or two that really speak out to you. Focus on following their steps, and when you’re done, you can pick one or two more.
There is really no such thing as too much information, especially when you’re blogging. You’ll come to find that what works for one person, may not be true for you. And what works for you, might be in direct contradiction of the advice of a blogger who makes 6 figures a year.
Take what you need, and leave the rest.
I did a lot of research for my Blogging 101 course, and along the way. I found that a lot of the courses that talk about blogging that are incredibly useful to me, are already listed at:

So please, sign up for my e-course here! And then go check out the list that is the end-all-be-all of lists about free courses for bloggers. (Mine is not listed, because mine did not exist when this list was compiled. Ha!)
I’d love to know in the comments if you signed up for mine and how it compares to the others!
