Crash Course in Blogging 101

To any First Time Bloggers (or any bloggers looking for help on their site or gaining new followers),

When trying to set up your blog and gain followers, do you ever feel like this?

Creating a new website can be frustrating as you navigate themes and customization options, but it does not have to be.

Finding blogs worth following and gaining followers in return can sometimes feel like the eternal mystery, but it does not have to be.

In my 5-day course, you and I will work together to tackle these enigmas and make your blog something special! In six months, I reached 1,000 followers and let me support that statement with this, “It was not easy and it was a LOT of hard work!”

If you’re willing to work for it, then you’ve come to the right place!

In this 5-day course, we will address blogging issues such as: site identity, the physicality of your blog, blogging schedules, content, how to follow and be followed, and how to thrive in the blogging world. Additionally, I’ll still be around after this course to answer questions that may come your way not only as your Blogging Mentor but as a Blogging Friend.

For my services, I require a one time payment of $40 (approximately $8 a day, which means I’m offering my services for under minimum wage).

Tiffany from BeUTifLee gives the course 5 stars!

I enjoyed the course, learning more than when I started the blog. Kayla Ann is full of knowledge, don’t hesitate to ask any question, big or small. The course is fun, inviting, and creative. It all depends on your motivation and determination. As I always say, Creativity takes courage.

What is Plagiarism?

“There is nothing new under the sun.”

Usually this quote is applied to writing. Everything has been said and there is no story left to tell that has not been told. (I would argue differently, but that is for another blog post). However, I will argue that in today’s society we struggle with plagiarism on a larger scale than every before.

I am not going to spend a long time talking about what I think plagiarism is. Instead, I am opening it up to YOU — the bloggers of WordPress.

What is plagiarism? Is it something that can only happen in school or can it happen online too? Can a blogger plagiarize? Can an author plagiarize? Where does research meet plagiarizing? What are examples of plagiarizing?

In your own words and in your own examples, can you explain to me what you think plagiarism is?

Let me know what you think in the comments!

Fun Fact:

 Did you know the above quote actually originated from within the Bible? Ecclesiastes 1:9, “What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again, there is nothing new under the sun.”
