Saturday Seven Party {No. 52} + Mom Blog to Money Blog Workshop Giveaway ($199 Value!)

Hello, friends! I am so glad you stopped by tonight, because in addition to this week’s Saturday 7 Party, I have an amazing giveaway in store for you!

(‘Tis the season for giveaways, my friends!)

Recipe for Success!

Now that I’ve been blogging for a few years now, I often get approached my fellow bloggers who want to know if I have any tips for how to grow make money blogging. Even after treating my blog as a business for 2.5 years now, I have a confession to make: There are still plenty of days when I find the business side of blogging to be completely overwhelming! From blog design to ad networks to SEO, there is so much to take in!
So, when I heard recently that Laurie Turk of Tip Junkie has just put the finishing touches on an online workshop that does just that, I was over-the-moon excited! Laurie has taken all she has learned and put it into The Mom Blog to Money Blog online workshop, which gives all members a lifetime ALL Access Pass to what is needed to know to make money online, just like Laurie does. When it comes to experts in the blogging business, Laurie’s knowledge really is unrivaled. Ladies and gents, this talented girl makes $12,000/month from Google Adsense alone! 
Designed for those who have been blogging three months or more, the Mom Blog to Money Blog Workshop will help you set your blog up for success from top to bottom, including tips for how to brand, make money, create community, and generate traffic through the different zones of your blog. The workshop gives you the flexibility to work at your own pace, in the comfort of your own home. With 30 daily assignments,  16 checklists and printables, and 17 how-to videos, there is a wealth of incredible insight here for beginning and advanced bloggers alike.
 Are you ready to learn how to take you blog to the next money-making level? 


Giveaway Time!

 One lucky PS reader is going to win a FREE all-access pass to the Mom Blog Money Blog workshop!
This giveaway will be conducted via Rafflecopter, so use the widget below to enter. Please note that the widget might take a moment to load, and if you are enjoying this post in a reader or via email subscription, you might need to pop over to the blog to get entered.
