Insanely actionable tips delivered in bite-sized chunks straight to your inbox for how to build your blog’s tribe in as little as 30 minutes per day.
Starting a blog is the easy part. Getting people to read it is hard. And, getting people to come back and read more and more is even harder.
I should know a few things about this. My name is Jessica Malnik, and I made every mistake in the book back when I started blogging professionally.
This is the course that I wish I would have when I started blogging more than 5 years ago. One of the things that frustrated me for the longest time was always being stuck in the dreaded comparison trap. Only, I was always losing because I had almost no traffic, a tiny email list and almost no traction. Sound familiar, anyone? I had that lightbulb moment a couple of years ago looking back at all my posts. I realized I was doing blogging all wrong by constantly trying to compare myself to other bloggers, who I thought were more successful in this space.
- My posts were not as authentic they could be because I was trying to mimic other bloggers’ tone and styles.
- Some posts were straight-up boring, because I got too obsessed with all the “free” blogging “best practices” and lists of ten things that you have to do to reach XYZ.
- And, others were just straight up uninspired.
I realized the only way to grow a blog is to harness and nurture the community around it. While at first, it may be quite small. If you constantly feed content that interests your community, the community will continue to grow and swell up around you.
I’m going to show you how to get unstuck and grow your blog’s audience month over month so that you don’t make the same mistakes I and so many other bloggers have made. To do this, the course is broken up into four parts:
- Audience Research and Analysis
- Content Creation
- Influencer Outreach
This month-long course is designed to take you from blogging newbie to a confident pro on their way to building a thriving blog with a loyal community.

Nice Things People Are Saying
“Being new to the online ad blogging world, Jessica made the information easy to understand, and approachable for me. She broke down everything so there wasn’t even an opportunity to get overwhelmed. I learned a ton from Jessica’s course and would recommend it to others!”
“This course is absolutely fantastic. I started blogging in 2008, and didn’t write for almost two years when my career picked up and life happened. I took this course to get back into it and re-evaluate where I wanted to go with my writing. The structure and the content in the course is SO helpful, and what I got out of this course in such a short period of time took me MONTHS, if not closer to a year to figure out on my own. If you’re interested in writing in an authentic way and building a genuine audience of people to rally behind your topic, you should definitely take this course. There are a lot of “how to” posts about how to get your blog started, but this is by far the best approach I’ve seen, and well worth the investment. Save yourself the time of navigating through the process yourself or endless trips down the Google rabbit hole trying to find articles that all barely skim the surface. This course is where it’s at. I highly recommend it!”
“The step-by-step structure of this course is the perfect way to help ease anyone into a new, and sometimes intimidating world. That same structure also provides accountability and keeps you on task. It packs a lot of information into a short time period, but does so in an effective way. I’d like to see more courses using a method like this.”
