Blogging Bootcamp e-courses: are you interested?

Blogging Bootcamp

We are back! Big, bolder, and better. The Big Blogging Bootcamp e-course served as well, but now we have THREE e-courses to choose from. Whoop whoop!

After three intakes this year of The Big Blogging Bootcamp I have learned LOADS about teaching blogging shiz through the e-course format. Each time I seek to improve on the last and I am super proud of where I have got to.

Now, I have decided to split the e-course into three to suit the needs of the bootcampers. I am incredibly lucky to have bloggers joining my e-courses from all over the world and all at different stages in their blogging journeys. I have learned so much from these e-courses that I feel it was time to totally revamp and re-do the e-course but as three separate streams. This will allow me to better serve the bloggers taking the e-courses, meeting the level of blogging.

The original e-course was a solid 30 days of tasks, quite the challenge! So this time I’ve decided to break the e-courses into 5 week programs with two days off in between (a weekend to catch up!). This should help those with super-busy lives to keep up with the course and work on their blog improvements incrementally – which is what I recommend.

The other big change is that the e-course will be available to join at any time! Yey! So no more missing the enrolment date, you can join when it suits you. Of course, I’m hoping we can all start together on September 8th. Because that would be rad.

As my Rosalilium readers are the best, I’m going to offer a sneaky peek at what to expect from these three new blogging e-courses.

Blogging Ecourses

The e-courses are pretty much divided into beginners, intermediate and advanced. Each Blogging Bootcamp e-course will include different topics and feature a separate private forum for bootcampers to meet, share and talk to each other.

The e-courses are called:

***Beginner’s Breakthrough Blogging***

***Boost Your Blog***

***Broaden and Branch Out***


The Beginner’s Breakthrough Blogging e-course will be aimed at those starting their blog from scratch or newly started. It will cover all the basics to help you get your blog off to a great start.

The Boost Your Blog e-course is aimed at more established bloggers, perhaps those who have been going a few years, who are looking to hone their content, boost their creativity, increase traffic and engagement and find new systems to help with blogging.

And finally, the Broaden and Branch Out e-course is aimed at advanced bloggers who are ready to seek pro opportunities whether it is through monetising their blog or using it to further their career.

I am super excited to be bringing these e-courses back. And fingers crossed you love them too!

If you are interested in taking one of these e-courses do sign up here to be the first to know when we open for business. 

Thanks so much for all your support!



Lil bro came to visit

Vlog Lil bro visits

I don’t get to see my blacksmith of a brother very often these days, which is a massive shame. He is off being a country bumpkin, artisan blacksmithing guy over in Herefordshire at the moment. But he did pop over to visit a couple of weeks ago, so I decided to vlog the day.

It’s a couple of weeks late, oops! You can’t throw ALL the vlogs out there at once, eh?

If you like this video do pop on over to Youtube to subscribe to my channels RosaliliumTV and RosaliliumExtra. Some fun videos planned very soon.


Joss & Main: Awesome Homewares (£50 giveaway)

Win £50 Joss & Main Voucher

Time to get swooning over a new home and interior’s website, and it’s a good’un! Joss & Main launched recently in the UK, they’re huge over in the US, and they have some mighty fine offerings. If you are not yet familiar with them, it’s one of those members websites that has short sales on exclusive items, I believe the term is flash sales site. So, it’s great for grabbing some nifty deals on your homewares. And it has to be said, I have a big weakness for homewares.

Joss & Main covers a range of price points, so you can pick up fashion-forward desk lamp for your office for around £30 or you can find a stunning sideboard (who doesn’t love a good sideboard?! – says the girl with two in storage at the moment) for around £300. All of the items are heavily discounted from retail prices, up to 70% off.

As to be expected, I’m generally drawn to the retro inspired pieces. These are some of my favourites:

Living the unconventional life

by Elizabeth Sellers on 14 August 2014 · 25 comments


It was never for me, the conventional life. That is, I never grew up imagining the standard degree, career, marriage, kids, house, car, holiday once a year, etc. I don’t know exactly why, it’s not like I thought I was particularly special or anything, but I just never pictured my future that way. Instead I would dream about travel, strange places, people, performing, adventure and discovery. There was always a man, yep…I always wanted a partner – someone to share my life with. And I always wanted kids. But I just didn’t imagine the settling down bit. Maybe I’m just a dreamer, but my life has never followed the conventional path. Instead I have taken the scenic route at every opportunity, not always an intention, yet it appears that scenic is my path.

I mentioned last week that I felt like I might quit blogging.

It was an interesting post to share. The feedback from my dear readers, you lovely lot, was really encouraging. So thank you for that!

Long time readers will know that I take honesty and integrity very seriously here at Rosalilium. This blog is, after all, an extension of me. It’s a personal blog, even if it has been monetised so I can make a few pennies. So, it was important to me that I shared how I was feeling and kept you in the loop, even seeking feedback where necessary. And as it happens, the process of both writing and sharing has proved most cathartic. I’ve had a good mull and I think I’m finally getting to a point where I know what will be next…

what I wore to Blogstock

Last Saturday I went to Blogstock – the UK’s first blogging festival. Yep, much like a music festival but filled with bloggy-ness. Straight from a day at Summer in the City I was totally in the zone for all things creative and digital. Oh, and I got to hang out with some of my fave bloggers, which is rad.

Cajun Chicken with Lemon and Coriander Quinoa

Cajun Chicken with Lemon and Coriander Quinoa

If you make your own spice mix for the Cajun Chicken you instantly have a sugar free meal, whoop! As part of my healthy living diet I am experimenting with new recipes. This recipe is one such experimentation that ended up being an instant family favourite. Simply combine a bunch of spices to marinate the chicken, bung it in the oven while you whip up some quinoa with fresh vegetables, finish it all off with a squeeze of lemon and loads of fresh coriander. The result is a fresh, tasty meal that is healthy and surprisingly filling.

Colouring Books, they’re not just for kiddies {plus a giveaway}

Colouring in is not just for kiddies anymore. No siree, us grown-ups now have some rather smashing colouring books to get down with and what’s even better is that apparently it’s good for the soul! Colouring books for adults have been taking France by storm where over 1 million of these Art Therapy books have […]

I Might Quit Blogging

It’s been a long time coming. It was a niggiling feeling that started to creep in at the end of last year. By New Year I was doing lots of mulling and feeling like there was more, like there was something missing here and I had a deep desire to write more, write differently and […]

Yes/No Food List (the no sugar, whole food diet)

Our new diet is pretty specific. As I mentioned previously we are giving up sugar, but there are also a whole host of other foods that we are restricting from our diet at the moment. It’s pretty tough going, but with a change in attitude to how we eat we are managing to make interesting […]
