Whatever stage you are at in business, it is CRITICAL to keep learning. Below I have listed some of my favorite courses, programs, blogs, books, and podcasts: the best tools I have found to learn the blog business, from one (recent) newbie to another.

More about the business:
If you are just getting started with blogging, or have tried before and tanked, your first stop should be Abby Lawson's Building a Framework course, which will help you learn the blog business from the ground up. There are great video tutorials and an online community of bloggers to bounce ideas off of. Abby started from the ground up just like you and I, and now she and her husband make a full-time income from their business. First, you should check out her FREE course, Launch a Blog that Thrives, and then you can decide if the Framework course is right for you.
What the Tech?! ($297)
I've also heard really great things about Lesley Clavijo's What the Tech?! course, which explains for regular people all that techie stuff to running your website. I haven't taken it because I had already learned that foundational material when we met, but I have literally bought everything else that she puts out there, so I guarantee this course is a good one to learn the blog business.
It has been incredibly helpful for me to be a part of a community that will support and give feedback. At POP Preneurs (stands for Progress Over Perfection), we have access to tons of Lesley Clavijo's great teaching, but also, we get together monthly for a coaching call and throughout the month in our Facebook group to get feedback on landing pages, problems we are having, product ideas, etc. This is your go-to support group.
