Does this sound like you?

  • You want to create a location-independent lifestyle so that you can travel and work from anywhere in the world, including from home!

If you answered “YES” to any of the above, then allow me to take you “behind the scenes” for a moment and share my journey with you…

In a nutshell, here’s the story behind why I’ve been teaching hundreds of people about blogging since 2011.

I started doing this work because I’m so passionate about the power of blogging to transform lives, businesses and careers.

I’ve seen how it’s opened so many doors for me and others who have a strong online presence. You might know that I started blogging back in 2007 and could never have imagined the benefits I would reap as a young professional-turned entrepreneur!

6 years ago, I was a NOBODY in my industry. No one knew who I was and I had no online presence whatsoever. But in 2007, I made the decision to just “put myself out there” online and EVERYTHING changed for me.

Organizations began to invite me to their events for speaking engagements, hire me for freelance writing and consulting gigs and ask me to write for professional publications. I self-published my very own book and was even offered an adjunct faculty position at a local university! The opportunities were coming at me so fast that I had to start using my vacation time to go speak at conferences around the country, earning extra income every year on top of my 9 to 5 salary.

But if you go back and look at how I got started, the BLOG was definitely the catalyst. Even being a professional in my field with a Master’s degree, it was the VISIBILITY that came from having a blog that really skyrocketed my reputation among my colleagues and peers!

Since I started blogging, I’ve been awarded significant recognition in my career and business. I’ve been featured in numerous media outlets including JET Magazine, BBC London, The Washington Post, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Fox 5 News and The Network Journal. I’ve been named a “Top 25 Urban Entrepreneur to Follow,” ”Top 100 Most Desirable Mentor,” ”Top 25 Online Influencer in Leadership,” and a “New Leader in Philanthropy.”

fox5My first TV appearance even came through my blog! Get this: the reporter found my site through a basic Google search!

In 2010, I quit my job to become self-employed and the rest is history.

Today, my business is thriving with multiple income streams that allow me to use my unique set of skills, expertise and experience in combination with what I’m passionate about in life. Currently, I earn a living working for myself full-time doing what I love: writing, speaking, mentoring and coaching.

But if hadn’t put myself out there by starting my first blog, I wouldn’t have the location-independent lifestyle or freedom I have today. I’m able to travel and work from anywhere in the world, as long as I have a laptop and an internet connection!

Now WHY does any of this matter?

Because BLOGGING was the biggest factor in helping me to build my online business and location-independent lifestyle.

And I want to show YOU exactly how you can create these same results for yourself!

If you know that now is the time for YOU to take that leap and start putting yourself out there”online, I invite you to join me inside the Blogging School. I’ll be teaching you everything I know about building your online presence – from branding to content to traffic to list-building to monetization – and answering all your questions along the way.

In just 5 weeks, you will learn exactly how to start a professional blog, create an authentic online brand and build a business that allows you to travel and work from anywhere in the world!

Hear Directly From a Blogging School Student About What She Learned in the Course…

“I received my first speaking request!”

Kiara Blogigng School Testimonial Photo“Before I took the Blogging School course, all I had was a vision. I needed to learn how to put myself out there and offer my insight to a larger audience.

As a result of taking the course, I have been able to write about my passion in a way people can relate to and I have begun to carve out a space for my perspective online. As a result of putting forth effort into each assignment and engaging with and learning from the material and my classmates, I have gained the confidence to begin to leverage myself to family, friends, and co-workers.

I received my first speaking request shortly after! The person who contacted me mentioned how impressed she was with my site, which I can’t thank Rosetta enough for helping me to organize and fine-tune in our one-on-one session!

I recommend this course for anyone who is ready to establish their online presence without feeling as though they are fumbling around in the dark. You will be thoroughly guided and supported by Rosetta and a host of like-minded and inspiring individuals!”

– Kiara Jones, kiarajones.com

“I have been able to build a professional-looking blog presence…a huge feat for someone like me without any technical skills!”

Keisha Reynolds Blogging School Testimonial Photo“I was thrilled to discover Rosetta’s Blogging School course, just as I was considering embarking into the blogging universe. I had no idea where to start and I needed the detailed guidance that the course provided.

As a result of taking the course, I have been able to select a WordPress theme and build a professional-looking blog presence, of which I could be proud—a huge feat for someone like me without any technical skills.

I also love that the course allows you extended access to the materials and lectures. As I progressed in my blog creation, I was sometimes unsure of how to handle specific challenges. In these scenarios, I was able to listen to related lectures again to ensure that I was moving in the right direction.

I would definitely recommend this course to anyone who wants to launch their own blog, become a contributor to someone else’s blog, or simply wants to become better educated about this interactive media option. It was a real pleasure to participate in the course and I am eternally grateful to Rosetta for the information!”

– Keisha Reynolds, globalhands.co

“I’ve launched my coaching practice, secured speaking engagements and gotten paid as a freelance writer!”

meinthecaronmyweddingday“I signed up for the Blogging School because I needed clarity and guidance on how to start a successful blog. Before I took the course, I needed help with brainstorming ideas to spark conversation, building an audience and creating a viable schedule. What I enjoyed most about the training was Rosetta’s immediate feedback on my site and homework. I also found the templates extremely useful. On top of that, I loved the fact that I could complete the course at my own pace. As a result of the Blogging School, in less than a year and a half, I’ve been paid to write for popular online sites like Madame Noire, The Root, Hello Beautiful, Black and Married with Kids, The Griot, and LearnVest. I also have been featured in print publications like Black Enterprise Magazine and Ebony Magazine for my message of financial empowerment, girl power, and “juicy living.” In addition to freelance writing, I have leveraged The Frugal Feminista to secure speaking engagements and launch “Get Coached By Kara,” my personal finance coaching practice. I highly recommend this program for anyone who is looking for structure, support, honest feedback and practical tools to help them build their blog into a business.” – Kara Stevens, thefrugalfeminista.com

“It was a great value for the money!”

Melissa_Mendes_Campos“This course has been a great experience on a lot of levels. Practically speaking, it was really “doable” in terms of the fee, work load, and pacing. In terms of quality, it was great value for the money, and I was really impressed with the level of detail with which you were able to address everyone’s questions, as well as with the authenticity, openness, and friendliness you bring to what you presented and how you presented it . . . and it just made them that much more enjoyable and real.”

0617civalwar103-e1346856480368-220x300“Before I took The Blogging School course, I was just blogging without a real vision for what I wanted to do. The biggest thing I learned in The Blogging School was the importance of creating your brand and using your brand to get yourself out there. Now my career is taking off as people are contacting me for speaking engagements, consultation and general information on how to effectively interpret the enslaved experience at historic sites and museums. My blog is not perfect but it constantly gets better with the information I gained from The Blogging School!” – Nicole Moore, interpretingslavelife.com

Module 3: Traffic

Once you have your blog set up and some great content available on your site, the next question you will be faced with is: WHERE do you find readers who are actually interested in what you have to say? Fortunately, there are numerous FREE tools you can use to drive people to your site, if you know how to use them correctly.

Module 4: List-Building

You’ve heard it before – the money is in your list! Your EMAIL list, that is. I started building my email list back in 2008, but I didn’t really take the process seriously until years later. Big mistake! Your email list is the source of your most loyal blog readers as well as a valuable pool of potential clients and customers. This module will teach you how to leverage your blog to start building your email list right from the beginning so that you can reap the benefits much faster than I did!

  • my #1 secret for using social media to attract new email subscribers quickly!

Module 5: Monetization

This module will show you exactly how to monetize your blog using the most profitable online income streams available today.

“My blog has opened up opportunities to showcase my talent and expertise as a woman veteran entrepreneur!”

DonnaNewmantmphoto (2)“Before I took the Blogging School course, I was struggling with how to get started with the process. My gremlin “not good enough” paralyzed me from moving forward.

As a result of taking the Blogging School course, I have been able to step out of my comfort zone, because Rosetta’s teaching points and tips were exactly what I needed to get moving. The list of content examples Rosetta provided during the course was right on time for me. I felt more confident in sharing my passion and purpose with my target market. The 10 blog posts I have created thus far, have been met with favorable feedback and comments from others. Which in turn, opened up opportunities to showcase my talent and expertise as a woman veteran entrepreneur.

I recommend this course for anyone who wants to take their business to the next level with Rosetta’s support and expertise. Rosetta is a true professional whose energy and commitment to the success of others was demonstrated every week during the Blogging School Course.”

– Donna Newman-Robinson, CPC, ELI-MP, US Army/Retired, CEO/Founder of LAMA Resource Network LLC, lamaresourcenetwork.com

“I was able to set up and design the site myself!”

Likeisha Blogging School Testimonial Photo“I enjoyed and learned so much from the Blogging School course. For some time, I had been thinking about setting up a blog, but didn’t know how to start.

As a result of taking the course, I have been able to launch my blog site and therefore have an additional means of communicating with my niche audience for me life coaching business; Destination Purpose. The course stretched my technical knowledge and abilities, but in the end I was able to set up and design the site myself. The guidance provided by Rosetta Thurman was invaluable. The course provided great tools to not only help me design the site, but how to structure the writings for my blog and how to attract more readers.

I recommend this course for anyone who wants to start blogging but are unsure how to begin or those that have a blog but want to learn how to obtain more subscribers and readers. You will walk away with a wealth of new knowledge.”
