Founder of Where’s Sharon?, Multiple 6 Figure Blogger 


What does it take to build a successful blog?

If you’ve been blogging for a while, you’ll have realized something by now – creating a successful blog is tough. There’s so much information out there that an answer often leaves you with more questions…


What should you be focusing on to grow your income?

How much time should you devote to social media?

What are the best affiliate programs for bloggers?

What is the fair price of a sponsored post?

How many page views should you be aiming for? Do page views even matter?

If you can answer every question above with absolute confidence then you’re one of the lucky ones.

Until 3 years ago, I couldn’t.

I was hung up on chasing goals that I thought were the ultimate aim for every blogger, and yet, I was still struggling with the following issues. Read them and see if any resonate with you.


I Believed I Wasn’t Getting Enough Readers

I was doing everything I could to improve the readers experience on my blog. I worked super hard at improving my content. I changed my theme. I ensured I was engaging with people and I worked heavily on my social media, and even when my page views did start to increase, I encountered other problems.


The Reality Was That I Didn’t Know What I Was Doing

This shouldn’t have been a surprise.

Valuable information just isn’t out there and it’s obvious why. Of course bloggers are reluctant to share the secrets that make them as successful as they are.

They’d be providing secrets to their direct competitors.

Around this time, I took on another project – I built a niche site. Not only did I learn a lot about niche sites themselves, but it transformed how I thought about blogging forever, and it made me realize what I should have known all along.


Nearly All The Information Out There On What It Takes To Build A Successful Blog Is WRONG


When I started focusing on what worked, success came – and it came fast.

My travel blog began to be the main source of income for my family.

It has since been consistently rated in the top 50 travel blogs in the world.

This ultimately transformed my life in ways I would never have imagined, and it allowed me to focus on the things I love – travel, family and FREEDOM.


Here’s what I realized:

You can spend LESS time doing things and get BETTER results

You DON’T have to work yourself to death

You CAN have more time for yourself and for your family

Building A Successful Blog Doesn’t Require A Miracle, It Requires A Strategy


My name is Sharon Gourlay and I found my niche in family travel and turned my blog into a 6 figure online business.

My blog provided me with more than just income. It’s what allowed me and my family to live our dream life for the last 3 years.

I’ve learned so much from being a professional blogger for 3 years, and there is nothing more I want to do than to share it all with you.

I’m about to lift the lid on my best kept secrets in the best way possible, and this is your chance to grab a front row seat.

Are you ready to learn EVERYTHING you need to know about building a successful blog?

Frequent Traveller

I’ve been blogging for over a year and during that time I’ve taken two other blogging courses. So, I felt like I had a good idea of what I was doing. But my biggest struggle was making any money. My page views still aren’t super high and I thought the money would come once I was able to increase those. But after just one month of Build Blog Freedom I’ve already started to see affiliate income rolling in! Not only that, but my page views are increasing too. After taking the SEO module I immediately implemented some changes to a popular article and it jumped from spot 11 on Google to spot 4 in under a week! It’s like a lightbulb has gone on in my head and I now know where I want to get with my blog and how to get there. Best blogging decision I ever made.

Le Long Weekend

I am relatively new to blogging. I had tried to learn about SEO myself. It was soon apparent learning about the basics of SEO, let alone the nuances would be difficult. I wasted so much time trying to work it out. As soon as I implemented Sharon’s tips, I went from DA 1 to DA 22 in a couple of months. Growing up I was surrounded by teachers and I know what quality training looks like. I knew I wanted to do a SEO course but was put off by the low standard available. I was not happy to pay hundreds or even thousands of dollars when the teacher was not even qualified and the training materials non-existent. I found many ‘courses’ gave outlandish promises and when pressed cannot back up these claims. When Sharon opened up her Build Blog Freedom I jumped at the change to join. I knew she walked the talk and I knew it would work. And it is! I am learning so much. There is also a private Facebook group. It is very supportive environment full of like-minded people. The fact Sharon is a qualified teacher shows and her courses are excellent. Each module is well thought out and no detail left out. It is also current and constantly being updated. I am so happy to be enrolled in Build Blog Freedom and recommend it wholeheartedly wishing to learn about SEO or affiliate marketing!

With so many courses and books out there telling you how to build a successful blog it can be daunting to know which one is the best. So why did I choose Sharon’s Build Blog Freedom? Because I trust her. She has proven not once but multiple times that she knows how her stuff by building multiple six figure blogs, so I wanted to learn from the best. She is a brilliant teacher and is so enthusiastic and I believe she really wants others to succeed. Her course has helped me so much, I have learnt more in a day doing her course than months I spent trailing the internet for information, not knowing if that information could be trusted. I can’t recommend the course highly enough if you want to learn how to make money from blogging and learn from one of the best and most successful in the blogging world.

Have a question? You might find the answer below.

Who is this course for?

Build Blog Freedom has been designed to be suitable for anyone with a blog that wants to take it to the next level. The course is practical for all levels, with some individual courses at beginners, some aimed at advanced and some for everyone. That means from beginner to advanced, no matter what your skill level or stage in blogging, you will find course material to assist you in taking your blog to the next level.

How is this course different?

Build Blog Freedom is the only blogging membership course designed to guide you through proven steps for creating a successful blog. It’s not a course that simply instructs on what works – it provides the framework from proven methods and allows you to implement them one step at a time. This way you’ll be able to avoid feeling overwhelmed, balance your life and do things right the first time around. It also isn’t a course with an end date. You will continue to receive support and the latest information on what is working in blogging for as long as you need it.

Do I need to already have a blog?

Yes. Build Blog Freedom is for bloggers that are looking to take their blog to the next level.

Do I need to use WordPress

The lessons will show you how to do things in WordPress. It isn’t essential that you have a WordPress site, but it will make things a lot easier.

How does the membership work?

When you’re signed up to Build Blog Freedom, you’ll be given access to new modules each month which you can complete at your own pace – over the month or over a year. You can pick and chose which modules you complete based on your own goals and needs. As this is a membership course, there is no fixed end date which means you’ll continue getting access to new training materials and modules each month. You’ll have assistance for as long as you need it and you’ll always have up to date information on the best blogging strategies.

How much time will I need to complete the course material?

Everything you learn in the course is designed to be applied as you learn it. This means you don’t need to find extra time on top of your usual blogging tasks. You can work on the material as you would normally work on other aspects of blogging only without wasting on time on trying to work out how to do things yourself. The course material is also designed to be completely self paced so it’s fine if you need to take time away to travel or look after a sick kid. It will be waiting for you when you return.

Why should I trust a fellow blogger?

The only reason I am able to deliver this course to you is because of my own knowledge and success with blogging. I know it can work and I know the strategies that can make your blog successful, but why trust me? Because I used these exact strategies to grow my travel blog into a 6 figure online business. I’m known for being transparent, and Build Blog Freedom is the most in-depth I’ve ever gone.

Is there a minimum commitment period?

There is absolutely no minimum commitment period – you can stay a member for as long or as short as you like. This means that if you aren’t seeing results, you can simply withdraw yourself from the course with nothing to lose.
