Hi! I’m Sam, welcome to Blogyoucademy. The place where you learn how to blog and unlock your potential!
I started blogging for fun over a decade ago. Since then it’s become something of a self-taught obsession. From the joy of research and writing to rolling my sleeves up and getting geeky under the hood, blogging has given me so much joy, fulfilment and challenges!

So, why should you start a blog?
Quite simply, do you want earn a living doing something you love, from home, or, indeed anywhere?
If yes, blogging is right for you if…
- You love to share and connect with people
- You want to inspire, teach, motivate and entertain
- You aren’t afraid to roll up your sleeves and really put the hours in
- You have a knack for simplifying stuff so others can grasp it easily too
- You’re so passionate about your ‘thing’ you just can’t help but share your enthusiasm!
If you said yes to any of these, then yes, blogging probably is for you!
What if you aren’t so sure you can inspire or teach? What if you don’t have a true passion, or an obvious skillset. Is blogging still right for you?
That’s exactly why I created Blogyoucademy!
I believe everyone has potential. I want to help unlock your potential. I want to help you uncover and embrace your unique set of life skills, passions and experiences to create a blog which connects and serves an audience of devoted fans who love what you have to say.
Let’s get real though. Blogging isn’t just about you. It’s about other people. Good blogs scratch an itch, they help people get from A to B, they solve problems, inspire and motivate.
A great blog is not a glorified journal. It serves one tribe, one niche. Yup, it’s all about them.
You don’t have to be an expert to write a blog people want to connect with, either. You just have to be willing to frame your journey of discovery so others can relate. Remember, it’s not necessarily what you say or do, it’s the way you say it that turns visitors into raving fans.
Raving fans buy your products, services and recommendations. From courses to affiliate marketing, there are many ways to monetise your blog and I’m here to show you how that’s possible without a huge following.
I’ve built lots of blogs over the years and Blogyoucademy is about me getting meta: A blogger who blogs about blogging. I’m walking the talk and building this blog from scratch, sharing over a decade of experience exclusively with my subscribers. I dish on what’s working and what isn’t so that you can implement the best strategies for your own blog.
