Way back in November, Elsie of A Beautiful Mess introduced the latest of her online e-courses Blog Love.

At the time I was going through a rough patch juggling ideas of what I wanted for my own blog and shop alongside my role as mom and homemaker, all amidst the impending holiday hoopla and general, all-round craziness.

Having followed Elsie since our introduction earlier in the spring during the Indie Biz e-course, I was naturally curious to learn her secrets to blogging success with the hope of instilling some of that magic into my own evolving blog. So after my holiday guests had left and school had started back, I made sure I signed up so as to begin!

Unlike the Indie Biz workshop, Blog Love is instantly (within 48hrs of payment) accessible with all sessions presented at once via a private blogsite. Available for at least 2 years, topics can be worked on at your own pace or, like I did, printed off to be read anytime in the future.

The private blogsite is beautifully presented in Elsie's unique style, with a wealth of photographic examples to endorse her points. It is clear her heart and soul has been poured into this e-course, when it shines with her endearing personality and obvious enthusiasm for her subject.

With 12 topic sessions plus a number of extra bonuses that include her personal blog journey and thoughts on ethical behaviour, there is much to absorb and think over - I filled several pages of my daybook with notes and ideas generated by Elsie's candid knowledge!

In particular it was her own personal, handmade-indie-craft twist on the subject that makes paying the course fee so worth while. Elsie has a special way of making learning so enjoyable!

Though it looks to cater to new bloggers in particular, Blog Love goes far beyond the 'getting started' stage. It was both a great refresher as to why I'm blogging in the first place, with ideas on how to elevate it from being a purely fun side project to something more meaningful. And it got me seriously thinking about what I want my blog to be in the great scheme of things - something that had begun whilst absorbed in the Indie Biz class with my shop.

If you are interested in going beyond the basics and would appreciate a next level learning experience to enhance your blog journey, then I would firmly recommend Elsie's Blog Love course.

It is great value for money + a fun learning experience.

With the advice gathered from Blog Love, I have gained a new enthusiasm and perspective for my little blog and am working on ways to implement those ideas one post at a time. Great stuff!
