Rookie bloggers "stumble upon" how to build a blog the right way through previous failure and discover the secrets to launching a successful blog FAST...
Our blogging career started with a big fat failure...
Hey guys! We're Alex and Lauren, and this is a photo from our first blog - Health and Happy Hour.
While most bloggers would probably not openly talk about this stuff, our first blog failed, HARD.
It's a tough pill to swallow, but it's the truth.
Not every blog starts off the right way or become successful - actually, the majority don't!
We had lots of excitement for our blog and energy for our ideas, but we never felt like we got anywhere. We felt like we we just spinning our wheels and "hoping" it would work.
The worst part - we spent a TON of money on things we didn't need.
Things other bloggers and entrepreneurs told us we had to have...
It's not all doom and gloom though:
It was through these experiences that we learned how to successfully launch a blog the right way.
Fast forward to today, and we have successfully launched not just one blog, but 2 different blogs in completely different niches + a Youtube Channel!
We want to share with you right now the 5 reasons why our first blogged failed to launch and how you can make sure you don't make the same mistakes we did...
- By the end of our 1st month, we successfully launched and built our blog from scratch!
- By the end of our 3rd month, we had 300,000+ visitors and readers and had and quit our full-time jobs!
- By the end of our 6th month, we had made $17,163.98 with our blog!
- By the end of our 1st year, we had made $103,467.89 blogging and got to travel the world!
Our third blog,
- By the end of our 1st month, we successfully launched and built our blog from scratch!
- By the end of our 3rd month, we had 30,000+ monthly visitors and had made our first product!
- Currently... We don't talk about the income specifics on this blog, but things are going really well, and we are making over $10k/month!
And Now It's Your Turn to Finally Build and Launch Your Very Own Successful Blog From Scratch!
Pam went from feeling overwhelmed, scared, and lost to excited and thankful after finding Launch Your Blog:
"Hi! I am so glad to have signed up for this course! I was feeling overwhelmed, scared, and lost.
My blog is lifeangles.com Shortly, after I made it, I just stared at it and wondered what now? That's when I searched and found this amazing course! The courses are laid out in such a simple and easy to follow fashion.
I am totally excited! I definitely have some work to do to fix my blog so it's definitely "under construction"! LOL
I just wanted to thank Lauren and Alex for giving us such great content! Good luck everyone! Let's do this! -- feeling thankful"
-- Pam, Launch Your Blog Student
Here is what Beth had to say about Launch Your Blog in our private support group (access comes with the course!):
"The Launch Your Blog program is excellent! When I say I learned a lot is an understatement. I literally knew nothing about blogging or the process of what type of equipment you need (Bluehost, WordPress, X Theme, etc.).
You both were great teachers. I've watched all the videos once, just as an overview, and now I'm going through them again taking notes [and writing down questions that pop into my head].
This was definitely a case of "I didn't know how much I didn't know." I feel confident now to get everything set up and ready to go! Starting from Square 1 doesn't feel so scary anymore. Well worth every penny! Now I can work on making millions of pennies myself! :)"
-Beth Kosc, Launch Your Blog Private Community Group

Take a peek inside the program...
"I started to take the plunge into blogging without knowing what I was doing, looking up all sorts of info on the internet... which is incredibly overwhelming when you're first starting out. The course breaks everything you need to know down to the most important parts so you aren't going crazy and spending time on the wrong things."
- Brittany, Launch Your Blog Student
"This course took me from hitting my head against a brick wall (WordPress) to feeling absolutely empowered and confident about my blog launch."
- Christina, Launch Your Blog Student
Here is what Danielle emailed us about her experience with Launch Your Blog:
"I loved your Launch Your Blog Course! I have always wanted to start a blog and just didn't know where to start. For months, I had been searching online for sources to understand the steps and WordPress. I became frustrated and confused with all the different information out there. Because of this, I almost gave up on blogging completely until I stumbled upon one of your posts on starting a blog.
Then, I found your course! It was just what I had been looking for in one complete package. Your course helped me tremendously and my blog is up and running at www.bringingbackthepeace.com.
I am also now taking Lauren's Pinterest Traffic Avalanche Course. I am loving that course too!"

- Sheila, Launch Your Blog Student
"Their course cut my learning curve in half, literally. Without t heir course, it would have taken me far longer to put this blog together. There are so many things they mentioned in their 'Build and Launch Your Blog' course that I had no idea were even possible. Before buying their course, I was walking blind, trying to figure out how to blog and just didn't have any idea what I was doing..."
- Michael, Launch Your Blog Student

Who is Launch Your Blog NOT For?
Intermediate to Advanced Bloggers
If you've been blogging for a few months now and feel like you've got the hang of WordPress, have designed your blog, and have already written your first few blog posts, this course is not going to be for you.
Those Looking for Traffic or Monetization Help
This course is NOT designed to get you blog traffic or help you monetize your blog, because we have OTHER courses dedicated entirely to these subjects. There is WAY too much info to pack into just ONE course on all of these topics!

Who are the bloggers that are teaching this madness??
Alex Nerney & Lauren McManus, Co-Founders, Avocadu & Create and Go
Hey there, future blogger! We're Alex and Lauren, and we own a health and wellness blog at Avocadu.com as well as a blog called Createandgo.co, where we teach people just like you how to turn your passion into a profitable business you love.
We absolutely love what we do here at Create and Go, and we've been featured on some major websites for what we do.
In less that 9 months of working online together, we turned our health and wellness blog into a passive income machine that generates over $20,000 per month in blogging income.
We were able to quit our full-time jobs working as a personal trainer (Alex) and a CPA (Lauren) to pursue our dreams of being able to work from home and we now make over $100,000/month with our two blogs. We have even been able to travel to countries like Nicaragua, Peru, Bali, Portugal, and more - all while working on our blogs!
Don't get us wrong... It takes hard work and dedication, but you'll find that working on something you LOVE and that has the ability to majorly impact your future is a million times more rewarding and fun than a job that you hate. Now, it's your turn to experience the fun and success that we've been able to achieve!
Let's build your blog together!
