Hi, I'm Hope

My journey into blogging started years ago, when "Live Journals" became a "big thing".

In the last 15 years, I've worked as an Event Producer for a national charity, running one of the largest conferences for television producers in the world. I was also a renaissance festival performer for about 4 years. But when my husband and I decided to start a family, I focused on my small event photography business. That is when I found blogging  for business and discovered what a powerful tool it can be! 

Since then, I have personally built  3 businesses through blogs, over 50 blogs for other companies and worked to create a programs that will help others build their businesses. Over the last 2 years, I have taught over 400 bloggers to build their dreams into WordPress reality.

I get how easy it is to become overwhelmed with new technology and all the different options.  In this 4 weeks class, I will keep you accountable and help YOU get your blog up and running.

Hope Hanson, Founder, Tea Drinking Geek Blogger!

How many hours does the course take?

Most people complete this 4 week course in about 4 hours a week.  Some people will do that in one big chunk, others will work at it in 15 minute blocks! 

Do I need to be a technical wiz?

NOPE! That is the power of this course.  We will walk you through the process with simple, easy-to-follow step by step videos and instructions.  Our weekly group coaching calls and Facebook mastermind group  are there to support you, too!

Are there any additional costs?

Yes, you will be purchasing your domain and hosting (don’t worry, we explain what all that is).  You have options when purchasing these but they usually costs less than $100.  The best part is that your enrollment in this class INCLUDES a beautiful Wordpress Genesis Theme valued at $140.

I am afraid I don’t have anything to say!

We will literally walk you through ways to create 60+ ideas to get you off on the right foot.

What is the difference between this class and your DIY BYOB?

This is a 4 week group coaching, so we hold you accountable to getting your work done.  We include the Facebook mastermind group (value $200), a beautiful Wordpress theme (value up to $150) and live group coaching.
