For those of you without a blog: Thinking of starting your blog but not sure where to begin?

For the rest of you who own a blog: Been running your blog for a while but tired of not getting the traffic you desire?

After a highly successful run of my blogging program last year, come Dec 8 (that’s in less than two weeks!), I’m starting a new and improved run of my Blogging Success Program, sharing my top strategies on how to blog your way to a million pageviews.

If you are tired of courses that don’t deliver and want to pick up cutting-edge blogging strategies from someone who blogs for a living, this upcoming blogging course is for you. :) Read on!

My Blogging Story

(This section shares my blogging story for those of you who don’t know. If you already know this, skip to the next section on course details!)

December 14 was the day I started my blog, Personal Excellence. At that time, it was called Embrace Living under the domain embraceliving.net (now defunct). My layout was nothing fancy, just a standard WordPress template:

PE circa 2008 - EmbraceLiving.net (Screenshot)

PE circa 2008, a.k.a. Embrace Living. I later changed it because it didn’t fit my blog vision.

My blog subsequently went through several overhauls, going through changes in site name, tagline, logo, layout, and even domain name!

PE in second half of 2009. By then I have switched my blog title to “The Personal Excellence Blog” and domain to “CelestineChua.com”. This wasn’t the last of it!

2010 was when I dropped “The” and “Blog” for the blog name “Personal Excellence”. I also switched my domain to PersonalExcellence.co, which is PE’s domain name today.

Hitting 1 Million Pageviews/Month in < 3 Years

Throughout my blogging journey, I learned many crucial lessons about building a top blog. I learned the key steps to build a blog’s traffic. I learned the things which web surfers look out for in deciding whether to stay on at a site. I learned what are the things that separate a top blog and a “not” blog. And I learned how to create a blog that people would want to read, above and beyond other blogs.

Because of that, my blog traffic grew very quickly. 

  1. In my 1st week of launch (Dec ’08), I was getting an average of 237 pageviews / day (some have difficulty hitting the 100’s range in traffic even after years of blogging).
  2. In my 1st year (Dec ’09), I was getting 1,893 pageviews / day (that’s a 800% growth!!!).
  3. In my 2nd year (Dec ’10), I was already getting over 10,000 pageviews a day: 11,117, to be precise. That’s a 600% growth on top of the previous year’s 800% growth, or a 4,690% growth vs. my first week!!!!

PE's traffic between 2008 to 2010 (Screenshot)

PE’s traffic between Dec 2008 to Oct 2011

Then in Oct 2011, after less than three years of running the blog, I reached over one million pageviews in that month alone. That meant that PE was receiving over one million “views” of the individual pages on the site in just that month, all coming from  hundred thousands of visitors from around the world!

One Million Pageviews in 2011

Hitting one million pageviews in just one month!

Achieving that milestone meant that PE has become one of the most highly read personal development blogs in the world! In a sphere immensely saturated with hundred thousand other sites, this was an incredible feat.

PE Today: Leading Personal Development Platform

Today, I have developed PE into a go-to resource for anything to do with personal growth, from having free articles, to inspirational quotes, to videos, to podcasts, to e-books, and more.

Blog Your Way to a Million Pageviews: My Blogging Course!

Blogging has changed my life. It has opened doors for me where there weren’t, connected me to great minds from around the world, forged new friendships on my behalf, and allowed me to pursue my passion.

Most importantly, blogging has led me to you.

I’ve learned heaps in my blogging journey (five years and counting, plus I had five years of web development experience pre-PE, making it a total of 10 years of online experience). I’ve learned what it takes to create a top blog, set it apart from the crowd, and build top traffic in the shortest amount of time. I built PE to a million pageviews a month in less than three years, and this wasn’t by chance in anyway: it was all a deliberate, conscious effort at blog building and traffic building.

And I’m here to teach you how to achieve the same too.

Starting Dec 8, I’m opening a limited-slots-only blogging course to those of you who want to learn the best about blogging and blog your way to a million pageviews. Details below, and sign up NOW by scrolling to the end of this post!

Who Should Attend This Course?

  1. If you are looking at blogging to build your business. Even if you are new to blogging but you would like to explore it for your business platform, this is for you!
  2. If you want to build a personal blog and take it to success. The course is suitable even for those who want to build a personal blog. The fundamental strategies and tactics I’m going to share will be relevant be it for a personal or business blog.
  3. If you are a newbie blogger and you want to cut down their learning curve. Let’s face it — blogging isn’t easy. It can be tough and intimidating, especially when you are starting out all alone in this huge blogosphere. Rather than struggle in your blog journey and go through the arduous learning curve, I’ll be sharing you my proven success strategies in this course. No frills and no fluff. Just real content and things that work.
  4. If you have been blogging for a while and you want to take your blog to the next level. Whether you are currently facing a traffic plateau or you wish to break through to that next level in your traffic, my strategies will apply. What I’m going to teach are timeless and they apply to any blog development phase; they continue to be relevant for me today even as I reach out to more readers on PE.

Don’t expect tutorials with technical how-to’s (like how to use WordPress, set up your blog, code in HTML, install a plugin, use a plugin, or install a theme). All these, you can easily read up by searching via Google!! I’m here to teach you pure content and top blogging success strategies which you cannot find anywhere else. I’ll most definitely be sharing links to resources and recommended plugins where appropriate.


There will be six modules at a pace of one module each week:

  • Module 1: Set Your Blog Fundamentals
  • Module 2: How To Create Cutting-Edge Content
  • Module 3: How To Get New Visitors To Your Blog
  • Module 4: How To Retain Existing Visitors
  • Module 5: Art of Creating Raving Fans (Key to Self-Fueling Traffic)
  • Module 6: Review and Wrap Up

Each session will be 2 hours long. It will be in a small-group, group coaching format, where I will be presenting the lessons, sharing real-time exercises, and having participants discuss their answers with the group each week. It will be a live and highly interactive course.

Course Schedule

There will be six sessions every Sunday, 9pm to 11pm (2 hours long), Singapore time (GMT +8).

Kindly crosscheck the corresponding time for Singapore for your timezone. I’ve provided the equivalent timings for other time zones below as a reference, though they may be subject to errors as it depends on whether you are observing daylight savings in your country currently:

  • CDT (GMT -6, no daylight savings): Sunday, 7am to 9am
  • EDT (GMT -5, no daylight savings): Sunday, 8am to 10am

  • CET (GMT +1, no daylight savings): Sunday, 2pm to 4pm
  • IST (GMT +5:30): Sunday, 6:30pm to 8:30pm

At the moment, the sessions are planned for the following dates (subject to changes):

  • Module 1 – Dec 8 / Sun
  • Module 2 – Dec 15 / Sun (No class on Dec 22 and Dec 29 as it’ll be vacation period)
  • Module 3 – Jan 5 / Sun
  • Module 4 – Jan 12 / Sun
  • Module 5 – Jan 19 / Sun
  • Module 6 – Jan 26 / Sun

* This is the second run of the course; our first run was between Dec 2012 – Feb 2013.

Testimonials from Past Participants

Here are just a handful of the many testimonials from past participants of the course…

My blog would definitely not be what it is today without Celes’s teachings. I took her first blogging course in 2011, and back then my web site really needed a makeover! I learned so much from that experience, but there is always more to learn. I knew that I would get immense value from taking another blogging course with Celes, and that is why I signed up for this one.

In this blogging program, I walked away with some really big insights. I got specific feedback on my blog– this was a great forum to get real constructive feedback from people sharing their true thoughts. I also learned some techniques for attracting more readers and encouraging them to stay involved in discussions on my blog. Celes very clearly explained how to make a blog more user friendly and the specific reasons for each suggestion, based on her real-life personal experience. She explains what to do and *why* it works.

Perhaps the biggest insight I gained is the importance of sharing personal information and using my blog as a platform to have an intimate conversation with my readers, like I’m sharing over coffee. Throughout this course, I’ve worked through my own visibility and criticism fears and have started taking steps to share more of myself. So it has been very therapeutic as well.

Celes shares all her step-by-step secrets for how to get one million pageviews/month on a blog in a simple, structured way. She holds back nothing and is very transparent about how she has achieved this goal for herself.

I recommend this course for beginning bloggers, but also for more advanced bloggers who want to improve their blogs—I guarantee you will walk away with at least one new high-level insight that will make a big difference!

Thank you for sharing! Looking forward to another course soon. :) 

~ Christina Mattschei, Blogger @ Coaching with Christina, Blogging Success Course Participant

I cannot believe all the information I’ve learned about blogging from the Blogging Success Program. I thought I had a pretty good blog when I started the course and just wanted to find ways to get new people to find me. I’d even considered skipping the first couple of lessons since I thought I’d already done a great job on my layout, title, etc.

Looking back, I am SO glad I did not skip those lessons. I’ve made so many changes on my blog already and the difference is amazing. Even the parts of the course I thought I didn’t need helped me tremendously! And the parts I knew I needed help on, driving traffic to my site and retaining visitors, was also priceless. I am certain that by following Celes’s advice I learned in this course, I will have an amazing and wildly popular blog.

Celes is an amazing teacher, and after doing this course with her, I would even call her a friend. Her style is casual, yet informative, and you can tell she really cares and wants the best for you as she’s teaching you all her best tips. What she teaches you in the Blogging Success Program is the same stuff she used herself to create a mega successful blog and business for herself. These are tried and true methods!

I’ve read many articles on blogging over the years and I have never found anything that matches what you learn in this course

If you are serious about having a successful blog and are willing to put in a little time and effort into growing it, you need this course. I would wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone out there wanting to start, grow or improve their blog.

Thank you so much Celes, my teacher, my blogging mentor, and my friend! You have most definitely created a raving fan out of me! ”

~ Marsha Roberts, Blogger @ Get Off the Couch, Blogging Success Course Participant

I LOVED the course! This was easily the fastest way for me to learn all the information necessary to creating a top blog

From the very first lesson I was already learning vital information to improving my site. One of the things I learned was how my sites theme can convey the subject I want to new readersand how detrimental having a poorly thought out page design can be ( Module 1).

I also learned how important it is to make a personal connection with my readers (Module 2, Module 5). I know how I can create a strong relationship with readers so that they see me and my blog as a person they can trust rather than just a faceless website.  This is something I can use to keep readers coming back again and again.

Before the program, building traffic was easily the most mysterious task for me. Celes helped me to understand the various ways of driving traffic to my site  (Module 3). She also helped me to better understand the pros and cons of different traffic sources as well as how to maximize the effectiveness of advertising on other sites. 

Celes was a fantastic trainer and very knowledgable.  She gave all the nuts and bolts information that any site needs to thrive.   All of the information was well organized and easy to grasp.  There are a million things a person can do to try to grow their blog.  Some of these things could be more effective than others.  Celes gave me the key steps that will help me to make my site successful.  So instead of needing to test a million different items that may or may not work I now have proven action steps from a person who has years of experience in blogging.

I would absolutely recommend this course!  I think anybody who is serious about building a successful blog needs the Blogging Success Program.  It’s the easiest and fastest way to understand the steps to make you and your work successful online. 

~ Matt Leyva, Blogger @ Your Drawing Lessons, Blogging Success Course Participant

This blogging course is not like any other course that I’ve attended. It is really open up my mind to what a successful blog should look like, be like. I realized that all my previous blogs are crap! And obviously nobody reads them! It was when I was taking this course that I learned that I wasn’t delivering value to my readers.

The best thing I’ve learned from the course is the importance of providing high value content to readers. Before this I didn’t realize that there were so many elements to consider when writing our content and also the types of must-have content in a blog (Module 2). I’ve also learned a lot on how to create a blog layout that will attract web-surfers and make them want to explore my blog (Module 1, Module 4). Besides that, Celes also taught us how to have a clear identity, branding and mission (Module 1).

With this knowledge, my blog would not be “just another blog” anymore.

I can’t think of any course better than this that will teach you the step-by-step strategies to grow your traffic, list out the pros and cons of each method, and even evaluate the effectiveness of each method (Module 3). It will definitely take me years of research and trial if I were to find my own way to attract people to visit my blog! The different ways to retain readers and eventually create a fan base were also very informative (Modules 4–5).

Celes is a very fantastic and hardworking trainer. She patiently goes through every single point with us and makes sure that everyone understands. She also tries to answer all our questions and one of the most powerful tool that she uses throughout the whole course is a lot of examples to make us understand all the modules better. Celes is also a very friendly facilitator.

I would definitely recommend this course to anyone who wants to create a top blog and hit one million pageviews quickly. The value you get out of this course is worth many times more than the price you pay

~ Alyssa Choong, Malaysia, Blogging Success Course Participant

The Blogging Success Program was beyond all my expectations, both in terms of the content, structure and relevant information, and also because it went so much more beyond that. Personally, for me, it was a truly growing and empowering experience!

After finishing the last module, I worked on my blog for 5 hours straight! I was so filled with ideas, energy and optimism and I haven’t felt so empowered and so right in a very, very long time. So thank you, Celes, for that. :)

I have learned so many strategies, techniques, tips and valuable resources that I am absolutely convinced that I would not have found anywhere else. The modules were packed, filled with on-the-spot exercises, very structured and organized, but also, very much focused on the participants. I loved that after each segment, we had time to reflect and ask questions. I have also learned the right fundamentals for a successful blog (Module 1) and most importantly, how to maintain and keep your blog and your business growing (Modules 2–5).

Again, all the information presented, all the tips and techniques are based on hard, personal work and doing your very best, which I believe it is awesome. The course will not provide a short term, quick success, but is focused on providing you with the tools and knowledge to develop a stable, authentic and lasting blog, ever-growing, that is if you follow the suggestions and do your part.

I would absolutely recommend this course! It’s a must! I actually had a blog for quite a while, so I knew some of the fundamentals of creating one, but even still, I was amazed at the powerful, quality-filled content, its efficient structure and the way Celes conducted the webinars.

Thank you so much, Celes! 

~ Roxi Staton, Blogger @ Playground for Life, Virginia, Blogging Success Course Participant

Celes gave me the confidence to start my platform and succeed. This confidence comes from a solid understanding of ALL aspects of blogging and the blogging world.

I look at other sites and see glaring—easy to fix—mistakes and feel sorry for them as they are spending their valuable time and energy on something that’s not working very well.

You’ll have so many aha!! moments in this course. Back yourself 100% and buy this course. I can’t recommend it enough.”

~ Monique Hohnberg, Sydney, Australia, Blogging Success Course Participant

I had seen the tremendous value Celes provides to her readers through her blog, Personal Excellence. Her posts overflow with detailed information and helpful insights, some taken from Celes’ personal life experiences. I knew that if I ever managed to get my blog going it needed to have the underlying qualities of PE, so when the Blogging Success Course was announced, it was obvious to me that I had to attend.

My expectations for the course were high and Celes did not disappoint. She willingly shared what she knew and coached us through six expertly-crafted modules that took us step by step through the process of building our own successful blog from scratch.

I learned the importance of knowing my target audience and developing my theme; how to create great content and how to attract, retain and transform visitors into raving fans. Most importantly for me, I learned that blogging takes time, effort and a genuine desire to deliver high value to your readers. I would need to give myself if I wanted people to truly connect with my message and the only way for me to achieve this would be to blog about a topic I genuinely believe in, love and enjoy.

Thanks Celes for a great course and for giving me massive value for money. I’ll be using the lessons learned for a long time to come.

~ Thomas Harper, United States, Blogging Success Course Participant

What an awesome program!  Celes has a wonderful demeanor and managed to embrace and connect with every attendee.  This created a supportive, constructive, productive platform… which really helped, as she provided huge amounts of information

Each module was detailed and well thought out.  Thorough, methodical, laid out in simplistic format with accompanying slides, examples and case studies… Suggestions and recommendations ranged from blog ‘friendly’ programs to start up your blog (Module 1) as well as layout options/rational (Module 4), to target audience breakdowns (Module 3) and the elements of creating great content (Module 2), etc.

There were so many areas of focus… by the time the program was complete, I had a much better picture of my goal and how to make it happen.  I am excited and inspired – as was everyone – to get started.

Interestingly, and surprising, the fifth module was the most poignant and personal for me.  Creating advocacy (Module 5) was truly a light bulb topic – not only for my blogging hopes, but for life in general. 

For all you blogging wannabes, you know you want to strike a chord with peoples’ hearts… this course gives you the tools to let that chord ring out farther and louder… enabling you to reach more readers.

Thank You Celes!  Awesome Job!!

Frequently Asked Questions

There are some clashes between the course schedule and my calendar. What should I do?

Don’t fret. Video recordings and slides will be sent to all participants of the course 48 hours after each session ends. This is to help the participants who already have prior engagements they need to attend.

Also, even if you can’t attend the sessions, I will be giving free e-mail consultation to any course participant who has questions in between the week’s modules. This consultation will last throughout the duration of the course.

There are so many blogging sites out there with free information. Why should I sign up for this one?

I always like to look at the accomplishments of a person before I decide whether to take on the person’s advice. So for example, if someone is giving me weight loss advice but does not have a healthy physique, it suggests that the person is probably still missing the full picture on being healthy and hence does not have the information I’m looking for.

In the area of blogging, there are indeed many blogs out there dispensing free information on blogging. I’ve no doubt their opinions have merit.

However, each person’s advice has different layers of depth and can only bring you to the level he/she is at. Meaning if someone is running a site that is four years old with about a 200 visitors a day, following the person’s advice will likely bring me to the maximum result of 200 visitors a day (which is still healthy traffic by the way, don’t get me wrong).

If I want to learn the best there is in blogging, I would much rather learn from someone who has achieved significant blogging milestones which I want for myself. This person’s opinion would have the most credibility because he/she has walked the path and “made” the marks I want, and hence know the best way to get there.

I’ve already shared the results of my blogging journey in the beginning of this post. Now it’s your turn to decide if you want to achieve similar growth for yourself.

In taking this course, you get direct, point-by-point insights on how to create a million-pageview blog, all packed in an easy-to-digest six-module course. These are insights you will not get from plowing through 1,000 sites on blogging, because not everyone may have the knowledge to achieve such results.

I’m an alumni of last year’s course and I’m interested to attend again.

You are definitely welcome to! As a special thank-you for supporting my work, all alumni will get to attend for free. Attending the session again is also a great way to reinforce the lessons you have learned.

Simply let me know your interest and post your payment transaction number for last year’s course in the comments section and I’ll hook you up with the registration details! :)

I bought Blogging Success Program before and I’d like to attend the live course.

If you have bought the product version of Blogging Success Program before 1 Nov, you get to attend this course at a top up fee of $120 USD (that’s just $20 USD per session)! You will find the live experience is much richer than just viewing a video recording because you get to interact with the participants, do the exercises live, share your answers, ask questions, and get instant feedback.

Simply let me know your interest and post your payment transaction number for your product purchase in the comments section and I’ll send you the discount coupon!

Update Dec 8: We have a FULL class of 26 registrants and registration is now CLOSED. Thanks everyone who have signed up and look forward to an amazing six modules ahead!! :D

I do my blogging course only once a year. I’m not sure if I’m going to do it next year because I’m always busy with different projects every quarter. (And I’m not dangling this as some sales pitch; I’m serious that I don’t commit to conducting regular courses since I focus on creating passive income systems.)

If you are serious about learning about blogging from someone who has been there done it, now is your chance. If you’re interested to learn about blogging and creating your top blog, now is the time to do it.

If you’ve ever wondered what it takes to create a top blog that attracts hundred thousands of readers a month, and why only a small handful of bloggers succeed where 99.99% others don’t, then this course is for you.

    Important: Hey everyone, it appears I got the day/timings wrong on the course schedule. For the timings in the western countries, it should be one hour further behind as I did not factor in daylight savings. Also, it should be Saturday, not Sunday.

    Please find the corrected day/timings in the post. Please also double check the day/timings according to your timezone – the course will definitely be held 9:30pm to 11:30pm on Saturday, Singapore time; so cross check that with your own time zone and let me know if there are any discrepancies with the timings listed in the post.

    Sorry about the mistake. Thanks Matt for highlighting it!

    Hey, Celes!

    How are you?

    Are you going to deliver the same material as in the previous blogging bootcamp you did 1-2 yrs ago? :-)



    • http://personalexcellence.co Celes

      Hey Christine! I’ve already addressed this in the post above. Refer to the section titled “Past BIB Members (from 2011)”.

      For those of you who took the Blogging Intensive Bootcamp (BIB) last year March (2011), you will get an additional 30% off! This course will have certain degrees of overlap with BIB but there will definitely be new things to learn and new things to apply in building your blog. Not only that, it is a great way to refresh the important principles you learned before but forgot/have not been applying!

      Simply post your receipt number and first five letters of your Paypal email in the comments section and I’ll email you directly for your exclusive, additional 30% discount offer (on top of the launch/early bird discount)!

      The blogging bootcamp was a 28-day step-by-step course where I covered sectional topics on blogging. This one will be a six-week/module course (video, webinar-style) focused on specific things I did to grow to a one million-pageview/month blog today. IMO, there is definitely enough new content and strategies covered which warrant taking this course even if you have taken the previous one before. The additional 30% discount I have provided has already accounted for the areas of overlap in the material.

      (FYI, I see both courses as completely different courses. I’m designing this course from scratch as a standalone six-module course and I’m actually not reusing any of the material from the last blogging bootcamp.)

      Not only that, I think it’s a great way to refresh on the things which were taught in the previous bootcamp but which might not have been reinforced 100% yet. I’ll be using some participants’ blogs as case study examples to illustrate some of the principles during the course. The webinar, video/presentation format now allows for new things which the previous blogging course didn’t (which was conducted over the forums in text).

      Hope this answers your questions and let me know if you have any other queries!

      (PS: I’m doing great, hope you are too!! Just received a conference invite from Rejoy just a month ago!)

        Hey Celes,

        Thanks for the reply and sorry for not reading the above post thoroughly.. I was just skimming this post when I saw the title that you are conducting this blogging bootcamp and thought of dropping you a line.

        I am doing great by the way and just pretty busy being a mother now. hehe…

        Hope you can meet Rejoy again!

        Merry Christmas in advance!



        • http://personalexcellence.co Celes

          Hi Christine, no no, it’s no worries at all! It’s great to hear that you are busy being a mother now. SO much has changed since you last took the bootcamp in March 2011, huh??

          I’m so happy for you and hope we will get to meet soon when you drop by Singapore. In the meantime, much hugs and love to you! :hug:

  • Marsha

    Oh no! I’ve been waiting for this to come out and have been so excited about it, and now it’s out but I am completely broke from Christmas shopping :( I can’t believe I have to pass on it, but this is the one time if year I can’t spend this much money. I hope hope hope there will be some way to get this next month :( :( :( Dang!!!

    • http://personalexcellence.co Celes

      Hey Marsha! :) If you are keen to get this program, I can set up an installment plan option for you at the same price. But this is only for those who are really unable to make the payment right away. Let me know if you are keen! I really doubt I’ll be running another blogging course again after this run.

      • http://likeimdying.blogspot.com Marsha Roberts

        How much would it be and when would i need to make the first payment? I am VERY interested in this course!

        • http://personalexcellence.co Celes

          Hi Marsha! Drop me a mail at [removed] and I’ll customize an arrangement for you! xx

      • geppina


        I have been reading all of your emails which I never read emails ever that I subscribe to thank you for all the actually amazing information. I own a massage practice and am working on developing an essential oils business. I want my blog to bring in traffic for sales and for exposure of my business. Will this be usefull?

        If so I am interested. Can I do the installments for the duration of the week and pay per week?

        I really want to do this course.

        Thank you


        Geppina :(

        • http://personalexcellence.co Celes

          Hi Geppina! As long as you want to build traffic for your blog and learn the fundamentals of what it takes to create a top blog, this course would be for you. It will help people who are setting up / running a blog as a platform to drive awareness for their business (kinda like how I’m using PE as a core platform for my own business) and/or people who are pursuing blogging as a hobby potentially to convert into their full-time career in the long run.

          Regarding installments, can you drop me a mail at orders@personalexcellence.co right away to get the ball rolling on this front? Thanks!

  • http://www.CoachingWithChristina.com Christina

    Hey Celes!

    I’m really interested in signing up for your course! I can’t find my receipt for the first blogging course I did with you–would I still be able to get the discount? Also, is this a teleseminar format course where we will be calling in? Sounds like some exciting new information! :)


    • http://personalexcellence.co Celes

      Hey Christina, yes, you would be – I definitely remember you took the BIB course so I’ll be happy to extend the discount to you. :D Just drop me a mail at [removed] and I’ll send you the code!

      It will be a webinar, live format course, where all of you will log into a designated meeting URL and I’ll be presenting the module in a powerpoint format. All of you will be able to chat with each other in text chat during the webinar itself. And yes, it will definitely be very fun! Participants of previous webinars (passive income course, emotional eating course, the self-esteem webinar) can all attest to that! The energy is always incredible!

      • http://www.CoachingWithChristina.com Christina

        Hey Celes,

        Thank you for clarifying! I’ve gone ahead and signed up, but I’m still confused about a few things. First, I clicked the test link and got sent to an error page saying that I’m unauthorized to view the information. I was able to get to the test page via a Google search and was told I needed to download Java. So I did that, but I’m still not able to use the link in the email. I’m hoping this won’t be a problem.

        Also, since you provide a call in # with pin code, are we calling in on a phone too or just clicking the link to go to AnyMeeting?

        Looking forward to it!


        • http://personalexcellence.co Celes

          Hey Christina! Where did you see the call in # with pin code? I have not provided it anywhere in the confirmation email receipt. Whatever the call in # is or wherever you saw it (if AnyMeeting had provided it), don’t use it.

          The first link in your confirmation payment receipt should bring you to AnyMeeting to register for the six modules, complete with a registration form asking you for information about your blog and all. You should access the weekly live sessions via the hyperlinks provided by AnyMeeting after completing the registration.

          The link to the test page is indeed broken as you said. My apologies. It should be: http://www.anymeeting.com/webconference/systemtest/AnyMeetingSystemTest.aspx.

          The entire course will be conducted online with both video (powerpoint slides) and audio. It’s not a teleconference/teleseminar but a webinar (complete with participant online chat), and this is why I will not be accepting any call-ins. Let me know if you have any questions!

          • http://www.CoachingWithChristina.com Christina

            Hi Celes,

            Thank you so much for clarifying everything! The call in # with the pin code was provided in an email from AnyMeeting for the registration confirmation. This is what it looked like:

            Blogging Bootcamp: How To Create a Million-Pageview/Month Blog
            This meeting recurs every 1 week(s) on Saturday from 9:30 PM to 11:30 PM (UTC+08:00) Kuala Lumpur, Singapore starting on 12/15/2012 and ending on 1/26/2013 (Add to Calendar)


            Thank you so much for explaining more about the format and letting me know about the link. The new link definitely works and everything checks out fine.

            So excited to get started! :)


            • http://personalexcellence.co Celes

              Hi Christina, got it! I’ve removed the information from your comment as it’s private only for the registrants. Simply ignore the part with the call-in number and log onto the sessions via the hyperlink provided instead (I believe it should be provided in the registration email, right?). Let me know if it’s not inside.

              I’m excited to get started with you for the first session too! :D

              • http://www.CoachingWithChristina.com Christina

                Hi Celes,

                Yes I did see the hyperlink to the AnyMeeting sessions. I’m ready to go!


  • Mal

    I can’t do any Saturdays, becuase of work. I’d be really interested in this program but won’t be able to attend any of them giving the time/days are right in the middle of my work day. Do you think it’s still worth signing up and paying for if I’m getting only the recording the day after and not any of the actual involvement? I know from previous programs with you the video after is extremely useful and still valuable (along with the slides) so I have no issues signing up again if you don’t feel this one needs a lot of actual involvement/participation to be useful.

    • http://personalexcellence.co Celes

      Hi Mal! Sorry to hear that you can’t do Saturdays due to work. If there are sufficient readers who share similar feedback, I might consider shifting the sessions to Sunday. For now I’ll leave them as Saturday first.

      Regarding value, I don’t foresee significant difference in value. The value comes from the strategies and content which I’ll be presenting and which anyone will get regardless of whether they are attending live or as watching as a recording. During selected weeks, I’ll also be picking a small handful of blogs for critique (in relation to the week’s topic), so if you already have a blog, you are given the option to share the URL in the registration form for the webinar, after which I may select it for critique during the course itself. Whether it’s your blog being critiqued or not, all participants will get value from listening to the review.

      The style and format will be similar to previous courses (P.I. course and self-esteem webinar) with 80% of the time being me talking and 20% being participant sharing, which everyone benefits from anyway (be it the participant who is sharing or participant who is listening). So if you have been in previous programs before and found the standalone recordings helpful, then this wouldn’t be any different and you can expect the same experience/takeaways too.

      I think what will further help is you can send me any questions you might have before the module (based on the topic for that week) and I will make sure to address them by way of the material. If you have further questions after each module or about any of the exercises, you can also let me know via email and I’ll be happy to address them.

      I hope that helps, Mal! Let me know if you still have any concerns or if there is any area you would like clarification on!

  • http://tranquilitynow.blog.com Tina

    Hi Celes,

    I took the BIB course. I can’t find the receipt in my email but I found some information through my Paypal account.

      Hi Tina! Yes it is sufficient. I have sent you a mail with the coupon code. Register asap to be entitled to the maximum offer. Hope that helps! ;)

      • http://tranquilitynow.blog.com Tina

        Thank you so much! Signed up :dance:

        • http://personalexcellence.co Celes

          Awesome!! Look forward to connecting with you in the first module Tina! :D Be sure to register for the webinar sessions via the registration link in the confirmation receipt if you haven’t!

  • Antonia


    Signed up for this webinar! I have not started any blog, but this bootcamp will definitely help me in gaining perspective in starting one. Although technically I may need help by outsourcing. I am very IT challenged.

    • http://personalexcellence.co Celes

      Hi Antonia, thanks for signing up for the course! You will definitely find this course beneficial. :D Outsourcing won’t be covered in this course but feel free to drop me a note if you have queries about it. I highly recommend you to check out my article on outsourcing if you haven’t – it’s my one-stop guide to outsourcing and how I go about doing it: http://personalexcellence.co/blog/outsourcing/

  • http://www.juragantutorial.blogspot.com Robi

    Hi Celes

    I’m really interested with this course, but I dont have any paypal account,, is there another way to joint ??

    • http://personalexcellence.co Celes

      Hey Robi! :) You can pay with a credit card via the link above. It allows for both Paypal and credit card payments. Let me know if you run into any issues registering!

  • Thomas

    Hi Celes,

    1) I missed your passive income course as I hadn’t found your blog yet. Will you be repeating it or offering it as a program like you do with 30DLBL?
    2) Is your blogging course for beginners (like me) who have never blogged before but know we will need to in the future or is it for active bloggers?

    Thanks & kind regards,

    • http://personalexcellence.co Celes

      Hi Thomas!

      On the blogging course, it’ll be for both people who are starting out and who have their blogs already. I’ll be teaching principles and strategies and these will be applicable for anyone who wants to take his/her blog to success.

      On passive income course, that’s the unfortunate part – I do not know if I’ll be offering it again, and even if I do, it will not be anytime soon. This is why I would highly recommend that you go for the blogging course if you are genuinely interested. Just like the PI course, I highly doubt I’ll be conducting it ever again or anytime soon because PI and blogging simply are not core subsets of personal development, and not the areas I want to focus on. (Spending time on developing the products and courses is time spent that can be used on other areas for PE.)

      Hope this helps!

      • Thomas

        Hi Celes,

        I’m trying to register for this course but I’m having difficulty using my PayPal account and the order form doesn’t actually give any option for using my credit card directly. Please help!!

        • http://personalexcellence.co Celes

          Hey Thomas! When at the shopping cart, simply click the check out with PayPal button. Then, it should give you the option to pay by credit card. Let me know if it still doesn’t work!

  • Jennifer

    Dear Celes

    I am from Canada and I would like to sign up for this webinar. Do you have an installment plan in place? With the Christmas season my budget is a bit tight to pay for the full amount



    • http://personalexcellence.co Celes

      Hey Jen! Drop me a mail as soon as you can at [removed] and we’ll take it from there!

  • Dee

    I’d like to purchase 2 spots, 1 as a gift, but both for different emails addys. How do I do that?

    • http://personalexcellence.co Celes

      Hi! Simply make payment for one spot first, then make a separate, second payment for the second spot. You can then forward the second ticket to the person whom you want to invite for the course so he/she can register via the registration link. Hope that helps!

      • Dee

        Thank you Celes!

        • http://personalexcellence.co Celes

          Hi Dee! I think I have received your first registration (under the name of Debbie, is that right?). Just want to check that you have *not* registered the second seat? As I have not seen any second registration come in from you. Let me know if you have any more questions or need any help in that department! Thanks! :D

          • Dee

            Celes – Thank you. My person chose another gift. However, I noticed a change from Sunday to Sat- I read through briefly and am getting ready to head out to work again- that could be an issue as I work every Sat am.

            I’ve not taken previous PE classes. Are we able to download the transcripts- hear/see the video? How does that work? I’m on CST.

            Oh- also, was I suppose to receive a registration of sorts? Because I hadn’t- just the PayPal confirmation. Want to make sure I wasn’t missing something else.

            • http://personalexcellence.co Celes

              Hi Dee! Actually it was always Saturday – it was more that the days listed were wrong as I had mentioned in this comment. I had corrected it thanks to one of the participants alerting me about it.

              Don’t worry if you are not able to attend the class. There will be recordings provided and available for viewing up to a week after each session ends. The recording will be in video format. I’ll also be sending the slides (pdf format) across. The recording will be viewable online but will not be downloadable for copyright reasons.

              You should have received an email a confirmation receipt (other than the Paypal confirmation) with instructions on what to do next. Can you check your spam folder to ensure it did not get filtered there? (Otherwise even if I were to send a new confirmation receipt, it will just end up there anyway.) Also try doing a search for “blogging bootcamp” in your mailbox to see what mail comes up.

              • Joi

                I’m so excited to be a part of the bootcamp and have always admired your work! Starting a blog has been a personal goal for a very long time; seeing what you have done has been great inspiration. Thank you for sharing your expertise!

                As a visual learner- I was wondering if there will be a downloadable guide for us to use alongside the workshop? I worry one week will not be enough time during this holiday season for me to review and take all the notes I need to fully absorb all I need to be able to referr to later, when I will actually have time to work on this project. Of course- not having taken one of your courses- I could be completely wrong- I’m just concerned-
                I may be doing more note taking than active listening.

                • http://personalexcellence.co Celes

                  Hi Joi! Yes, the slides will be made available after each session. They will be available in .pdf format so they will be compatible for viewing as long as you have an Acrobat Reader.

                  I hope that answers your question! I’m excited to have you aboard and can’t wait till we get started! :D Do fill in the registration form if you haven’t (the link is inside the confirmation receipt).

  • Dawn Hays

    Can i download the material to my computer via video, pdf as i dont have a blog yet but have wanted this class so much for years… december is just too busy for me… if i can download material, then it might be worth it…. i still have to start a blog which isnt in the lesson…let me know what materials, deadline for this on downloading lessons and all of that if it starts in dec/jan…. very interested.. too busy with holidays to learn this… very excited you are doing this! :dance:

    • http://personalexcellence.co Celes

      Hey Dawn! For copyright reasons, I intend for the recordings to be viewable for only a week or up until the next session (for example, the second session has a two weeks gap till the third session so that would be viewable for two weeks). If you’re interested, do register asap as there are limited seats left. Let me know if you have any more questions!

      • Dawn Hays

        Hi Celes, my computer doesnt recognize powerpoint but if you are doing this video format then you are just demonstrating with powerpoint on your end.. i dont have to have powerpoint to view right? i have to leave to an appt but will be back by lunch.. i hope there is an available spot left open for me… if this question and answer here works out, then its a go for me.. i’ll check back!

        • http://personalexcellence.co Celes

          Hi Dawn, nope you wouldn’t need PowerPoint to view. :) As long as you have a video player (everyone has a video player these days), you would be able to view. After each session, I’ll also be sharing the slides for that session in .pdf format which everyone is able to read as long as they have Adobe Acrobat Reader. Let me know if you have any other questions! :)

          • Dawn Hays

            o;k.. this sounds great. pdf or something to have if not video or it takes up too much room to download on my computer, then pdf will work.. just something to refer back on… i think i am about to sign up..i dont know how much i can particpate live, but your info is essential to my growing so i’m diving in :dance:

          • Dawn Hays

            o;k .. for a second time it sent me the time zone of singapore from 9:30 pm.. i went in and changed my time to CST.. can you help me resolve this or am i doing something wrong? i dont understand.. will check back.. thanks….

            • http://personalexcellence.co Celes

              Hey Dawn, you’ve posted quite a few comments (7!!!) which were about the same questions and cluttered up the page. I’ve deleted all the comments and will be addressing your enquiries here. Hope you can understand! Also it’d really help to consolidate all your questions in 1 post rather than post multiple ones as it can get very confusing and make it difficult for me to be of help to you!

              My responses:
              1. The time zone information is something you input on your end with AnyMeeting. This isn’t something I can change or control.

              2. It does’t matter what time zone it is showing in your email, whether it is Singapore time or CST. The basic point is that the meeting will definitely start at 9:30pm to 11:30pm every Saturday Singapore time (according to the course dates schedule reflected in this main post above; please scroll up and refer to them), which is 7:30am to 9:30am Saturday CST, except for Dec 29 where there is no session as it is a holiday weekend. (You can also double check the CST time on your end to ensure Singapore 9:30pm Saturday is indeed CST 7:30am Saturday.)

              As long as you note that in your own personal calendar, and log into the meeting link that has been provided to you in your email, it will be fine. Since you have also mentioned yourself that you doubt you’ll be attending the sessions themselves, I’m not too sure why you are particularly concerned with the time zone? If you can clarify that that would help too.

              3. All the instructions to retrieve each week’s material will be sent via email to all the participants every week AFTER each session. The main thing you had to do after making payment was to register for the six webinar sessions online and you have already done this, so effectively there isn’t anything else for you to do now except to turn up for the first session (or if you can’t turn up live, then simply wait for the followup session details to be sent after the session itself is over this Saturday).

              If you have any other questions, let me know. Thanks! :) Welcome aboard to the blogging bootcamp Dawn!

              • Dawn Hays

                Hi Celes,
                I am sorry for all the comments.. i panicked as it was a last minute decision and wasnt sure how it worked.. i will be making some of the webinars live and some not.. i understand exactly what you are saying now..

                I have a very tight schedule so if i am 20 minutes late on a scheduled live webinar, is it best that i wait for the email link for the recorded one.. (i do understand not to get on late and start asking “what did i miss”.. no disruptions.. just wanted to know if i should wait if i run late on a live one and just get the pdf and recorded one..
                .. i didnt mean that i couldnt make all of them.. i am super excited .. thanks for your help.. this was a very last minute decision during a busy time and i want to make sure i understand it all previously to the course.. sorry for the panick! :hug: .. thanks again! :):)

                • http://personalexcellence.co Celes

                  Hi Dawn! It’s fine to enter the meeting room late, as long as there is minimal disruptions (i.e. exactly what you said about not asking “what did I miss”). So as long as late participants don’t do that, it’s okay to enter the meeting late (if due to unavoidable circumstances) and to leave early (if necessary). It’s also okay to attend some live and some not.

                  Hope I answered your question, and thanks for registering for the course! :hug: Let me know if you have any more questions. It’ll be an exciting first module! :D

  • Nazila Aghabeikpour

    Hello Celes,

    It’s really strange, I tried 2 times to enrol in the course using the link provided below ( to use the early bird discount), but don’t know if my payment finished successfully. I don’t have a pay pal account, so tried to pay using my credit card. First I used Visa card, then Master debit card. But after confirming the payment, I did not get a confirmation message or email.

    I really like to sit for this course and use the early bird discount, could you please check whether I have secured my place?

    My official name is: Nazila Aghabeikpour.

    Thank you so much.

    Best regards,

    • http://personalexcellence.co Celes

      Hey Nazila! I didn’t receive any payment or registration from you. Can you please try it again? To know if your payment went through successfully, you should have a receipt, which you didn’t. I think something might have went wrong during the purchase?

      Click on the link above on the page that leads to e-junkie – During checkout you should see that it’s $207.90 for the blogging bootcamp. Let me know if you still face any issues and I look forward to receiving your registration!

    • http://personalexcellence.co Celes

      Got your registration Nazila. Welcome aboard! :)

  • monique

    Hi Celes,

    I’ve signed up! I’ll be only listening to the recorded sessions as there are in the middle of the night for me – Sydney time – so do I need the system requirements for the live sessions? My computer doesn’t meet the necessary requirements….but perhaps it doesn’t matter if I’m only listening to the recorded version?



    • http://personalexcellence.co Celes

      Hey Monique! Yep you are right that it doesn’t matter that you don’t meet the system requirements if you are not attending live. Welcome aboard!! :D (You still need to register via the registration form link provided in the confirmation receipt though. It’s just for protocol purposes and for me to understand your blogging background and needs. Let me know if you didn’t get that.)

  • Monique

    Hi Celes,

    Also, I won’t be able to access the 22nd Saturday course as I’ll be on a farm for ten days. The owner (my friend’s mum) is eighty yrs old and has no Internet access. The nearest town is small and has no Internet cafes either
    So can an alternative arrangement be made?


    • http://personalexcellence.co Celes

      Hi Monique! That would be fine. When are you going and returning from the farm visit?

      • Monique

        Hi Celes,

        I had registered.( got a confirmation email) So I did it again after your comment Then had a little trouble with processing so now I have 3 emails in myinbox saying I’ve registered so u may want to delete something from yr end. : )

        I’ll be away from the 21st dec until 31st dec on the farm – looking forward to some nature!


        • http://personalexcellence.co Celes

          Hey Monique, that wouldn’t be an issue then. Since there is no session for the last weekend of the year (I want everyone to enjoy their vaca as I’ve shared in the post above), I’ll be having the recording for the second module available for two weeks, up until the third session itself. So all is good.

          Enjoy your farm trip from 21st to 31st Dec, and let me know if you have any questions about each module after it’s aired! :)

  • Bette

    So hi there Celes! :hug:

    JUST discovered this opportunity and I am very interested in this blogging course!

    Some concerns…I am traveling this weekend, and I am uncertain as to when the laptop will be up and running and how well it will be running in the week following. I recall with the last webinar course I took with you, I had to have a certain speed or something to be able to tune in. Anyway, those are my logistic concerns. I KNOW I would benefit from the knowledge and experience you have about blogging. I have been wanting to try my hand at blogging and see if it is a good fit for me, and you are certain to deliver the goods with this topic I’m sure! Also, as you know, I have almost zero technical skill with computers, so I am concerned I would have all this knowledge from you, and then be so techno-challenged that I wouldn’t be able to get my content into the blog! :rolleyes:

    So those are my concerns, Celes…I wish sometimes that I could just read a book about this topic, but I know the topic presented “LIVE” has its definite pluses. There is SO much happening this month, it’s hard to commit before after Christmas, but I would give it my best shot, depending on the logistics (having the right connection and being able to tune in) flowing with ease and grace, that is.

    I get nervous when there is just so little time to make a decision and get on board, especially when I am getting ready for a big transition (moving to Puerto Rico for the winter), and busy with the Holidays activity as well. Also, like others, funds have been mostly allocated to gifts and holiday-oriented matters. And then there is traveling on the top of that. Still, I AM interested in your course and writing this comment in hopes of arriving at a wise decision in a timely manner.

    Even though Blogging and Passive Income are not like 30BBM and 30DLBL, knowing how to do the passive income and how to blog are ways we can express living our best life with excellence, if we so choose, and if we know how, so offering courses like those seems to me to be very beneficial and right in line wrth PE as a regular offering. Depending on your schedule and availability of course… Just my humble opinion…

    I welcome any and all thoughts you have on any of the above, Celes. I wouldn’t want to miss a great opportunity on topics I am so interested in, nor would I want to sign up for something when it may not be the best timing, and my attention may be compromised.

    Thank you for all the material on PE that includes thought-provoking questions and topics. You present to us
    rich inquiry that allows us to go as deep as we are able to go, and we grow to ever greater heights. :D

      Hi Bette! Thanks for your interest in this course! :D Regarding getting the laptop up and running, let me know (via orders@personalexcellence.co) if there is any case where you can’t view a particular in time. I can extend the viewing time for you then, not a problem at all.

      I understand regarding the funding situation – let me know if you need a separate installment plan arranged. I can do it as a one-off only scenario for you.

      Let me know what you eventually decide and if you have anymore questions! I think it’d be great fun to have you aboard. You are always such a joy to have around during such live courses/challenges and if you are interested to explore blogging, then this course is definitely one you should take.

        I am still interested Celes..
        I cannot attend this coming Saturday, (traveling) nor do I know how well the laptop will run, but I am interested in this course. .And yes, a separate installment plan would be helpful.
        Thank you for your note, your encouragement, and your support. :D

          Hey Bette, thanks for your response! :D Let’s set this up over email – I’ll drop you a mail at this same email you are posting this comment from.

    Hey Celes – would love to do this BUT I live in Australia so the training times mean that I will be sitting there till 2.30am which means I won’t be able to attend ANY of the sessions. Any chance of accomodating the Australia time zone with a separate course? :dance:

    • http://personalexcellence.co Celes

      Hey Nic, there are readers from all around the world and unfortunately this is the best timing I could pick given the audience demographics. I apologize for the inconvenience.

      For the purpose of those who can’t make it for the sessions due to timezone differences or other reasons, there are the recordings which are available for viewing up to a week from the date of module itself. You can view them an unlimited times during the week. The value difference from watching the recording and attending the course is minimal and I have had many participants take past courses without attending any of the sessions (instead opting to watch the videos instead) and they have gained tremendously all the same. There is also an Australian participant for this blogging course (refer to Monique’s comments on this page) and she is also opting to view all the modules through the recordings rather than attend live.

      Also, if you have any questions at all about the material, you are always free to contact me directly via my orders email (the email where the confirmation receipt will be sent from). I’ve always answered all my course participants’ queries in a very prompt manner for all past courses and they can attest to the value and customer support they have received.

      Let me know if you have any other questions!

      Hi nic,

      It’s Monique from Sydney…. We cld swop numbers if u want to talk about the course as it progresses. I’ll be listening to recordings during the week……

        That would really be awesome if you guys were to do that actually! :D Let me know how it works out eventually if you do proceed with this arrangement! A buddy system is always good for courses, provided both buddies are committed individuals themselves (which both of you have to be if you are reading PE!).

        • Monique

          Hi celes,

          Yep, I’m def keen to do a buddy system if there is anyone else from Australia who signs up. It’ll help with motivation and being part of all those blogging – soon to be dynamos – will be cool. : ))

    Hi Celes,

    • http://personalexcellence.co Celes

      No problem Alyssa and I’m glad it has been resolved! :)

  • Gavin

    Hi celest, I signed up for your course. But I will be overseas tmrr, so will miss the first lesson. Look forward to watching the first recording!

    • http://personalexcellence.co Celes

      Sounds good Gavin! Thanks for informing me and look forward to having you live for the second session! :) The first recording (and slides) will be sent out 24 hours after the first session is over!

  • Gaby

    Hi Celes

    I am very happy that I registered and paid for the blogging bootcamp. I was not able to attend yesterday and thought that you will send an email with the recording and some pdf files.

    Unfortunately, I did not received anything. Can you please check, as I would love to listen to the recording as soon as possible.

    Wish you an amazing day.
    best regards

      Hey Gaby! Just want to let you know that I have sent through the email with the recording link and materials right after I received your comment on Dec 17. Can you let me know if you have received them fine? Thanks.
