When I first started blogging, before I even wrote my first post, I read everything I could from other bloggers. Making money from blogging was my ultimate goal, so I wanted to make sure that I was doing the best I could right off the bat. While reading different blogging posts, if I came upon a free course, I signed up! I wanted to make sure that I wasn’t missing anything because I really wanted to do this right the first time. (I totally didn’t — but that’s beside the point!) Now, I want to share with you the best free blogging courses from top successful bloggers. The information in these courses are beneficial to any blogger, male or female. It doesn’t matter your niche, experience or background. If you have more to learn, don’t hesitate to sign up for these great courses.

Why Free Courses?
There are two main reasons why I absolutely love free courses.
- They’re free. So, there’s that.
- They show me who I want to purchase from!
These may seem like they contradict one another, so let me better explain myself.
These bloggers took time out of their busy days to put all their best information into their courses in order to help aspiring bloggers.
Tons of their knowledge and experience is put into one course or location and offered to us for free! You really can’t beat those kinds of perks!
Like I said, before taking a free course, I made sure I already loved the content these bloggers were putting out.
All the bloggers mentioned in this post have been able to supplement their income (as well as the income of their husbands!) They have been blogging for years and are filled with blogging tips designed to help you see as much success as they have.
Who to purchase from
Yes, I love the free information, that’s for sure. However, I have learned (and it took me way too long to learn this,) that you should always be willing to invest when it comes to knowledge.
There is no successful entrepreneur out there that didn’t invest in themselves, in their companies or in their education. If you truly want to be a successful blogging entrepreneur, then you have got to think like one!
Free courses allow you to get a peek at your investments before you actually have to invest in them. If a blogger puts out a quality course, loaded with information for free, you can trust that their paid courses will be that much more beneficial to you!
All of these FREE courses benefited me, for sure. They benefited me so much so that I invested in paid courses through each of these women. Then I was able to learn even more! Thank goodness for all I have learned from them. Not only have I been able to create an income from blogging, but I have also had a lot of the guesswork taken out of it!
NOW, let’s get to the courses, shall we?

Working with Brands
This is an area I am just now diving into a little more. Because my brand took a little niche rearranging, I wasn’t sure just what brands were right for me. After doing a little blog soul searching and after investing in my courses, I think I am finally ready to get started with this next step full force!

Getting all this information into one brain can be a lot of work. That’s why I try to make sure to go slow and always take notes! There is nothing wrong with focusing on one course at a time! Let the other’s pile up in your inbox until you are ready for them! Don’t let your brain go into overload mode! That’s not good for anyone…or any blog. For a few other quick starts, check out my top blogging posts and good luck!
