Today I’m extremely excited to announce the creation of The Happy Blogger. It’s an idea of mine that I’ve had for some time and it’s so exciting and fulfilling to see it come to life. It goes to show, whatever your idea, if you put your mind to it, you can achieve it. Want to start a website/blog, just do it. All you need to start is a domain name, content and a website host provider like vps hosting to make your site live for everyone to see. It will be worth it when your ideas come to life! If you’re a blogger or aspiring blogger (living close to Toronto) I hope you’re as excited as me because it’s all about YOU!
You’re thinking “what the what?” Well I believe that an educated blogger is a happy blogger and I want to help make you a happy blogger in a fun way.
The Happy Blogger studio is a place where bloggers can learn new skills that will make their blogs the best they can be. There’s a lot of blogs out there and you want the skills to make yours stand out and look professional by using things like branding through logo generators and consistency. Whether you blog as a hobby or looking to take it more seriously, you want to put out your best for your readers or to attract brands. The Happy Blogger as a place to share and teach about creating visually interesting and compelling content with other bloggers.
We are kicking off with our first workshop on Saturday, Feb 1 – Learning to take better photos. You’ll learn from industry pro Maya Visnyei (a favourite around here) on how to make your own light box and learn what all those numbers & buttons on your DSLR camera are really for. You can read the full details and registering by checking The Happy Blogger page here.
(note: you must have your own DSLR camera & tripod)
Maya is a real pro and super duper talented at what she does so you’ll be sure to walk away with some new skills. Also it’s at her own photo studio, how cool is that?! I really hope that if you’re in the area I’ll see you there. Oh and you don’t HAVE to be a blogger – if you’re just really into photography and want to learn and join in the fun, please join.
Things are just getting started in the social media dept., but you can join us on Twitter for updates and info sharing.
