Meet the Instructor
Micah J. Murray
I was a Clumsy Blogger too, asking all these questions for years. stumbling around learning the answers the hard way – trial and error, frustration, dead-ends, Google, conferences, and lots of late nights in front of my computer screen.
This is the part where I'm supposed to make big promises about how the Clumsy Bloggers' Workshop is going to CHANGE YOUR LIFE and get you ONE GAZILLION PAGE VIEWS and QUIT YOUR JOB. I'm not going to do that.
I will say this: I've learned a lot about blogging – from growing my own blog and from building blogs for dozens of authors. And in this course, I will tell you everything I've learned.
I can also guarantee you this: You will learn a lot. I cover everything you need to know to succeed in blogging.
And I've written this course as if we’re sitting in a coffee shop talking about something we are both passionate about.
Each lesson is super-practical, written in a conversational style, with plenty of examples – images and links scattered throughout each lesson.
At the end of each lesson, you will find a 2-3 page printable PDF of action steps to help you apply what you've learned. If you need more on a particular topic, you’ll appreciate the list of Recommended Resources I compiled for each lesson.
When you finish the Clumsy Bloggers' Workshop, you'll have all the information and resources you need to set up a professional-looking author blog, fill it with quality content, share your posts via social media and mailing lists, and grow your online community.

What People are Saying
" Clumsy Bloggers' is a blogging workshop that actually has heart. It encouraged me without filling me with a false sense of confidence, and it pointed out my blind spots without making me feel inadequate. I loved this course."
- Jonathan Hollingsworth
This course is for anyone who wants to learn more about blogging. Maybe you are just starting out and want to build a solid foundation. Maybe you have been blogging for a while and want to see more traffic, more interaction, more community growth. Either way, this is for you.
This course is designed to take six weeks. You will unlock a new lesson every week, which should take a few hours to complete. You will read the lesson materials, fill out the Clumsy Bloggers' Worksheets, and apply the changes to your blog. However, you WILL have access to the course materials forever, so feel free to move at your own pace too.
The workshop starts when you want it to. As soon as you enroll, you gain access to the Introduction and Lesson 1. Every week after that, you will get an email notifying you that a new lesson is available. Just click the link to log in and view the week’s new lesson.
Forever! Once you’ve unlocked a lesson, you can review it again any time – even after the eight weeks are completed. The Clumsy Bloggers' Workshop will be a resource you can revisit often as you grow as a blogger.
This is a very practical, hands-on course for building a blog, so you'll need a blog to work with as we go. I recommend WordPress, but if you already have a blog on another platform (such as Squarepace), that's fine too. Each lesson includes printable PDF worksheets, so you'll want a printer and a pen too. I'd also highly recommend a journal or notebook – an important tool for any writer.
I'm confident that this course is exactly what you need to reach your personal blogging goals this year, but if for any reason you are unsatisfied I will happily issue you a full refund within six weeks of your enrollment date.
