One of the most common searches that lands people on my site is “What should I blog about?” One day, while talking with Julien Smith, he said, “You should totally do something with that, like start a project or something.” This was, like most advice Julien gives, great advice, and I did. I ended up gathering hundreds of active weekly subscribers to a product that delivered 10 or more post topic ideas per week, plus more. And then I closed it for a little while, because I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do next.
Blog Topics for You
Here it is again: Blog Topics is back in a slightly different format. You’ll still receive weekly emails filled with topics and blogging ideas, plus solid writing advice, but instead of paying a monthly subscription, we’re doing it as one lump payment, and you’ll be sent 45 weeks worth of posts.
PLEASE NOTE: If you subscribed to Blog Topics in the past, this is the same product you received (somewhat refreshed), so it might not be a great idea for you to sign up for that again. However, I have something for you, too.
Introducing Blog Topics: Master Class
If you’re looking for a writing course to help with your blogging (and your other writing), something that’s full of meat, something with accountability, something with plenty of information for you to work with, I invite you to sign up to Blog Topics: Master Class.
BTMC (what we’re calling it for short) is my best effort at creating my best advice, writing exercises, interviews with experts, tutorials, resources, live interactions, a group of peers learning with you, homework (with consequences), and more. The course runs for 16 weeks (just about 4 months), with weekly information being sent to you to work on and act upon.
Want a tiny peek at some of the modules? This is my little note list of what goes in which order. There may be a few shifts around, but it has at least all of these modules in place.

The very first class starts now, so if you want to jump in, check out Blog Topics: Master Class. (It starts when you sign up, so you won’t miss anything if you didn’t get to this blog post for a day or two, but don’t delay.)
And If You Want to Sell This?
We’ve also opened up our HBW Affiliates program, which means you’re invited to sell the above courses to your community, if they appeal. We share 50% commission on both projects, so that can amount to some decent income, if you’ve got a community that can benefit from these courses.
If you’re not sure how to do affiliate selling, don’t worry. I just put together a welcome letter that hopefully gives you some of the basics, plus resources on how to learn more.
And if NONE of this is of interest to you, I’ll see you next post with information that I hope is useful to you.
