Writer and professional blogger Ali Hale created a digital course called Staff Blogging to help other writers develop yet another reliable revenue stream in these times of economic hysteria – I mean challenges. I had a chance to use and review the staff blogging course. Here’s what I found. 

From the discussion of setting goals to the one on writing headlines that sell your writing, Ali Hale’s Staff Blogging Course is not a marketing tool to sell her website. It’s a useful, information-packed study of staff logging – writing regular blog entries for specific sites for pay. Ali has been a corporate trainer, has written training classes and seminars and is a working staff blogger who earns her living by practicing what she offers her students.


 The best of Ali Hale’s Staff Blogging Course  

  • The Staff Blogging Course is well organized, easy to follow – gets right to the meat.
  • Work at your own pace
  • The writing is clear, well thought out, intuitive. As soon as your mind forms a question, Ali has answered it.
  • The exercises walk you through what you need to know, whether you’re a beginning writer or a seasoned pro.
  • The Staff Blogging Course stays on topic, wastes no time.
  • Author Ali Hale names names and tells all. Many e-book courses tease with “learn all you need to know” rhetoric, but never give a clue about finding markets or selling your work. Ali gives specific examples that lead you to discover additional resources.
  • The course is inexpensive – less than $20. 

Things that could be improved in the Staff Blogging Course

I couldn’t come up with a thing and no, I don’t know Ali personally.  

The course pays attention to detail and shows pride in the workwomanship. It can stand against any other out there, and I have seen most of them. Ali is good at marketing and respectful of her readers’ intelligence. She doesn’t hammer you with sales pitches – she’s professional, adult and appropriate. Other online marketers could learn from her.


If pushed to criticize, I’d say she might consider doing less blogging and writing more courses! As a matter of fact, I secured two new staff blogging assignments after working through her course. And maybe she’d consider a livelier color scheme…

  1. Thanks for the review, and all your kind words. I’m especially delighted that you found the structure intuitive and that questions were answered as they arose … I very much aimed at that, so it’s great that I managed it!

    It’s fantastic to hear you got some new assignments from the course — in fact, I spotted your rather delicious looking chicken/turkey burgers recipe in my DLM feed earlier this week, so I’m wondering if that was one of them! (They sound delicious, by the way…)

  2. I thoroughly enjoyed the course – I can recommend it to my readers without a worry!
