The struggles I faced learning how to build this blog are what inspired me to start my own Blog Mentorship Program. Having a mentor takes the pain out of learning the essential techniques to having your own blog. Why spend hours upon hours watching YouTube tutorials and scouring online forums when you can work one-on-one with a team of experts?

  • Content, Branding and Strategy: I started blogging with zero experience and did EVERYTHING wrong before I got it right. It’s through this experience that I know the value in having a mentor. With my Beginner and Advanced Blogger Programs, I will teach you everything you need to know about strategic storytelling, creative content and keys to effective engagement.
  • Website Development: Chris is my personal web designer and has been the backbone to this blog. While a pretty website is important, it’s the technical parts that keep it running smoothly. With both the Beginner and Advanced Blogger Programs, you will be working one-on-one with Chris to develop your website and learn the technical side of blogging.
  • Graphic Design: Two years ago, I came to my friend Brandon with an idea, The Blonde Abroad. I had nothing more than an idea for a logo and a dream of a cartoon blog header. I didn’t even have a blog yet! He came back to me with the logo and website design I LOVE and use to this day. If you need any graphics for you website, including a logo, you will work directly with Brandon to turn your idea into a professional and beautiful design.

The difference between my Blog Mentorship Program and other blog courses is our team’s comprehensive approach to your education. Working one-on-one with a team of experts will ensure you have a deep understanding of blogging, a clear strategy on how to effectively tell your story and a plan on how to better connect with your audience.

Instead of hiring someone to do everything for you, we will give you the education and tools necessary to run your own website.

Client Testimonials: The Proof Is In The Pudding

Kiersten and I met over a Catalonian food tour in Barcelona during a TBEX conference. From then on I was a loyal follower of The Blonde Abroad.  A year later, as I was developing my brand, focusing on what I do best, I was consistently frustrated with all things html to Photoshop and every thing in between. Don’t even get me started with trying to figure on how to organize my social media platform.  After one of my freak-out moments and shout out to the universe to find me my own tech/blog/brand guru I somehow landed on Kiersten’s website and noticed she has a blog mentorship program! I am still in awe with what Kiersten has provided me within less than two months. I really felt that she was really committed and excited for my project and me. This wasn’t just a job/pay check for her. Kiersten truly became a teacher and a cheerleader for my brand. Not only do I have a website/brand that I am in love with, but also I have the knowledge, the skills and the tools I so desperately needed to run a successful online presence. I actually know how to use Photoshop! This program was THE most important part of my business. Kiersten, you ROCK and you are such an inspiration.
Susan Singer, Advanced Mentorship Client,

I came across Kiersten’s site when I was thinking about starting a blog. I loved her style and decided to reach out to her about her Advanced Blogger Program. It was the best decision I could have made as a beginning blogger. When first starting out, I was completely overwhelmed with everything there was to learn from Photoshop to WordPress to social media. Kiersten helped me prioritize the tasks and taught me the tools I needed to get going. She coached me through how to find my niche, define my mission, and solidify my brand, as well as how to amplify it using the vast network of social media channels. On our weekly calls, she was always super enthusiastic about where I was headed and she was full of good ideas that I would have never thought of of my own. Then in between calls, she was also very responsive and available to answer spur of the moment questions. I really enjoyed working with her. Kiersten – thanks so much. My blog wouldn’t be where it is today if it weren’t for you!
