Celebrity Blogging Description

Celebrity blogging is a course created by Roy Fielding. The author’s goal is to teach amateur artists, web freelancers, online business owners, and hobbyists build a blog that gets noticed in the marketplace. Roy talks about the growing trend of celebrity bloggers who make an impact in their marketplace/audience despite being average people and how they’re doing it.

Celebrity Blogging Detailed Overview

In the beginning, blogging started out as a simple online journal which people thought were creative outlets for teenagers and young adults. But over the last few years, blogging has become one of the best ways to keep in touch with your audience and make an impact in the marketplace, so much so that almost every major company and business has their own blog.

One of the trends that have been increasingly popular is the rise of celebrity bloggers. Bloggers such as Perez Hilton and Just Jared have made a name for themselves out of obscurity. The Celebrity blogging course attempts to figure out what marketing and blogging strategies these bloggers are using to build a huge following.

The course by Roy Fielding is broken down into 12 video lessons that walk you through the process of building your blog from making tweaks to make your blog more SEO friendly, creating posts that get noticed, branding your blog, and working with plugins to make your blogging more effective.

At first, it seems like the course would go into what top bloggers are doing in order to gain notoriety and fame. But when you start going through the course, it becomes increasingly clear that the course is more focused on getting your blog set up, making the necessary adjustments, and designing your site.

The first five videos go through grabbing a domain name, getting web hosting, working with Cpanel, and installing Wordpress on your site. The next videos reveal how to find wordpress themes, customize them, and install plugins that make blogging easier. Videos 9 and 10 talks about getting traffic from the search engines and using plugins to make your blog SEO friendly.

The last two videos are the ones that start going into strategies that will get your blog noticed. There are tips on writing blog posts that grab attention and how to optimize them to make them more attractive. Then there are strategies on how to brand your blog, add more content, and getting traffic from other blogs.

I didn’t see much information in the area of actually marketing your blog. Unfortunately, the celebrity bloggers aren’t studied and their sites are not dissected in detail. There isn’t anything that goes through what these big name bloggers are doing to get tons of traffic and get noticed in their marketplace.

Celebrity Blogging Reputation

In conclusion, the course is basically a primer on setting up your Wordpress blog on your site. There isn’t any advanced information on actually marketing your blog. While this course is perfect for the Wordpress beginner, it will be a disappointment for the experienced blogger that was looking for strategies on what celebrity bloggers are doing. The course has received negative reviews from customers because it is misleading and there is only generic information on marketing your blog. If you are an experienced blogger or even a novice that only recently set up a blog, this course is not for you.

Absolutely lame

Celebrity Blogging was nothing more than recycled information. I wish I would have known this before I spent my money. I thought maybe I was going to grab a few secrets showing how to get into the "secret" world of celebrity blogging. All the videos that I got I found every single one of them on Youtube which made me so upset. Celebrity Blogging basically showed me how to set up a regular blog along with the basic aspects on how to generate traffic.

All of the information that Celebrity Blogging threw my way could have been found through searching Google if I wanted to go that route. Very disappointed in this product.

Obviously Didn't Have Staying Power

I thought this site was a good idea and tool when I first stumbled across it. I'm pretty interested in people like Avril Lavigne and thought it would be fun to set up a blog about her that could be monetized. A couple of the videos and articles on Celebrity Blogging were helpful to me; however, not worth the money I invested because much of the information was either common sense or easily found online for free. I'd say the most valuable thing Celebrity Blogging offered was information on where the best sources of star gossip could be found (specific magazines, t.v. programs, online feeds, etc.).

I say offered in past tense because this site is now a squatter search site! That goes to show that this was just another overnight system...

Wondering which video games are good to play with your girlfriend/boyfriend, wife/husband?

 
 
 
Teaches everything except for getting visitors to your site

I was surfing forums when I came across Celebrity Blogging. The idea seemed very intriguing so I decided to give it a try. I used it to create a blog and followed all the steps it outlined. My celebrity guide was set up, and the guide even includes news websites where information can be picked up. The one problem was getting traffic. I created a blog around Paris Hilton, but received very minimal earnings. I’ve worked on this blog for a week, and my Adsense earnings are barely $1 per week. This was a waste of time and money. I recommend using your money on something else, and not wasting your time on this guide, as it doesn’t really help you make a lot of money.

Does not really help you get visitors

I loved the idea of this guide so I purchased it. It was very well written and concise. Using it I created a blog and followed all the steps that I was supposed to do. My celebrity blog was set up and this guide even includes other news sites where info can be picked up as well as effective editing and writing methods to create well written articles. But the fault is that the guide does not explain how will we get traffic onto our sites. I built a blog on Lindsay Lohan and my blog appeared on page 6 of Google search which was very disappointing. My AdSense earnings came out to be just under 50 cents a week. So after working on it for one more month I dropped the blog and the idea altogether and I still have this stupid pack lying in front of me.
