What has been happening behind the scenes? A whole lot. Yes, August 1 is the date when we start this new journey, but in the mean time, there's LOTS to do.

So in this video I share what I've been doing and what some of the plans are for the next 5-ish weeks. Exciting stuff, so make sure to watch the video.

    Shame on you! Using your baby like that!!

    ADORBS!! Looking forward to seeing how this works out for you. Any interest in articles on video for a blog about blogging?

    • Hey, I’ve got to use what I have 😉

      Anyways, I’m looking for anything related to blogging. Even Video. That has been really big for me and can be big for many others.

    I’m sorry Leslie, I couldn’t pay attention to you because of the CUTE baby!! Thanks for the update!

  • I can’t believe how much that little monkey of yours has grown, Leslie! 🙂 My oldest just finished his last day of Junior Kindergarten yesterday… my, how time flies.

    The BAB changes sound really interesting. It’ll be cool to have new ideas and viewpoints to learn from. Hoping someone will post some G+ stuff… I suspect there is *huge* potential in that platform. I created an account on it less than a month ago and it’s already my third highest traffic generator from social media!

    • Yep, he’s growing like crazy. It’s ridiculous. I try to tell him to wait, but he doesn’t listen.

      And yes of course we’ll be posting some G+ stuff. Just had a conversation with one of the writers about that yesterday and we have some very cool plans where that’s concerned. So yes – stay tuned. Awesomeness is on the horizon 😉

  • Thanks for the update Leslie! I don’t have much to add but to say that your son is adorable!

  • John Parks says:

    Your son Noah is just too cute! I can’t wait for your new program to come out. I am an internet cave man making a living on my google blogger blog and really need to ratchet it up. Do you have a tentative release date?

    • Man, I should use him in more of my videos 😉

      In terms of a release date are you referring to the release of Become a Blogger premium? I have no release date as yet because it all depends on how much I get done and when I get it done. In terms of the restructuring of Become A Blogger, that’s August 1st.

  • Sounds very interesting. Can’t wait to see it all when you unveil the new BAB! Plus your baby is absolutely adorable. I write a “snail mail” marketing newsletter. I would love to contribute marketing articles for BAB on how to combine the two. Congratulations Leslie on what you’ve done so far to make BAB awesome! ( PS I used the BAB course to set up my blog – but have not kept up with it recently because of personal family issues. Now I’m inspired to get going again – probably will revamp the entire thing and thus will go back to the beginning with the BAB course again!)

    • Hi Linda,

      If you have experience combining the two successfully then definitely go ahead and apply. The main thing is that it needs to be actionable, and based on personal experience. That’s the only way to make it fully relevant to what we’re trying to accomplish here.

  • Oh, did you say something Noah, I mean Leslie. I need to rent me a baby, my kids are to big! I think he stold your thunder! I can not wait to see were BAB is going, just love it and am learning a lot as of late. Can’t wait to start my very own podcast and your part of the reason that I’am doing this, Thanks and keep up the great work!

    • Man, Noah really stole this one from me didn’t he? LOL. It’s all good. He’s the man in this house now it seems 😉

      Definitely let me know when you launch that podcast. Glad to be able to inspire others to taking action. That’s what it’s all about!

  • Crystal says:

    Just heard you on a Pat Flynn podcast. I love your enthusiasm!! I look forward to learning more as I explore this site. I just started my own site inspired by Pat’s podcasts! Always looking for more inspirational teachers like you.

    • Hi Crystal, great to have you hear. Pat’s a great guy and I was honored to be on this podcast. Glad you found me there. Looking forward to getting to know you here 🙂

  • Gina says:

    Change is always exciting! Looking forward to all the awesome new things BAB will have! And your son is just too adorable!

  • Mary says:

    Thanks Leslie,
    I am at a point of being ready to learn how to make money with my blog and learn audio and videos.I can write for it but the “business” part has me stumped.

    I will be looking forward to your up and coming training.
    It is time to settle into one mentor.

    And Noah is amazing. He is such a good baby and really beautiful! Thanks for the great video!

    Also, what is the plugin that give the boxes for follow up comments? I have been seaching for it. And do you get a lot of spam without a captcha?

    Thanks again, you are appreciated! Mary

    • Hi Mary,

      Thanks for your comment. There are a few plugins that do that. You can use the Subscribe To Comments Reloaded plugin or the Jetpack plugin. The easiest is the Subscribe To Comments Reloaded one.

      I was doing fan with SPAM just using the Akismet plugin but now I need to look for something else because I’m starting to get A LOT of spam comments.
