  1. shannon, i can see why it may seem to be expensive, but i don’t think it is. not when you figure it’s two instructors for two full days for only 20 people. that’s quite personalized, and based on what i’ve seen of the class, they’ve put their heart and souls into making it fun, and beneficial to blogging, and creating a website especially as a career.

  2. This is what I was waiting for and I too am out of town that weekend. Please, please, offer round two in the fall. I’ll sign up now if you do!

  3. I’m dying to take this class but will also be out of town that weekend…please PLEASE offer another course in SF!!!

  4. The class sounds phenomenal, but I also have to agree about the price – $750 is even more money than the cost of attending BlogWorld and BlogHer, which are multi-day conferences with dozens of seminars. I think you should at least offer a generous early bird discount. I think you will probably find that a lot of gals want to come, but won’t be able to afford it. Just my 2 cents!

  5. I love the concept of this. People shouldn’t have to go to school to learn the basics of web content production, so a little workshop is an awesome idea. But I agree with the others about the price. This experience seems more about the smilebooth, the baggu bags, and the catered lunches, than about the teachings. There are things like that offer year memberships and access to a gazillion video tutorials for half the price.

  6. i see what you’re saying about your concerns about blogshop’s price, but i think with the small class, and the total experience of it is well worth the price – it’s a workshop experience that aims to be fun, and educational, and is very one-on-one. for me personally, i can’t learn online – i need ‘live’ help! i’m excited to learn and have a fun weekend.

  7. soooooo excited to attend this class! i attended the shorter version in portland this past weekend and i cannot even begin to describe how much i got out of just 3 hours with bri….this chick is AMAZING and a super rad teacher. it was worth every penny and more…i got so much out of it that i immediately signed up for the full length version in the bay area despite the price or the distant to travel (i live in seattle). i cannot WAIT to learn more from these chicks! they are insanely talented! oh and super bonus! met some really amazing gals and can only imagine i’ll meet some pretty fabulous people in san fran too….victoria included!

  8. On the price: If you have an existing business – it’s a business expense, and you can “write it off!”

  9. Just squeaked in and snagged the last spot. I’m so excited! I hear what people are saying on the price and I think, to a blogger, that it seems high because we are used to conference prices and e-courses. This is a different animal. Typically any kind of graphic design training costs well over $500. Do a quick google search for “Photoshop Class, San Francisco” and you’ll find two day courses that cost $650 and $895. And as Virginia pointed out, this is also in a much more warm environment that is catered to the unique needs of bloggers—with instructors who have a similar style aesthetic. That’s pretty priceless!
