The value of BLAM 3.0 is way beyond the $500 we could charge, and it’s currently only happening free this weekend, live. You can attend one or both of the sessions.

Each session includes different parts (explained above) of the whole BLAM 3.0 training, so it’s ideal to make both if you can. They will each last approximately 2 hours, and they each include some top secret giveaways. If you can only make one session, try to choose the one that includes the areas you most need to work on with your brand before the end of the year and beyond.


Meet Your Hosts

Verick Wayne is teaching BLAM3

Hi, I'm Regina (the one on the left in the Jimi Hendrix shirt). And I'll be one of your tour guides through Blog Like a Mag 3.0. I've been creating content online for several years on multiple sites, and I've been through all the trial and error imaginable.

But, I noticed something epic a few years ago--the first blog I took incredibly seriously, and applied several concepts I learned as a magazine publisher to, was the first blog to get sponsorship offers, get over one million visitors, and employ other people full time. At byRegina.com, I help self-publishers and indie content producers monetize their knowledge in ethical and fun ways online.


Hey, I'm Verick, and I kind of hate bios but Regina says I need one so . . .

Like some of you, I am new to online content creation. After getting an MBA and spending time working for a large tech company, I deiced to take the plunge and pursue my passions as an entrepreneur.

Now I am building a lifestyle brand focused on travel, photography, and more. In the process of building my brand, I've gotten really excited about beautiful aesthetics and the power of Instagram. I've been practicing lifestyle photography, learning the power of user-generated content, and building my Instagram following to over 23,000 people (@VerickWayne). I'm here to share with you what I've learned, and also to learn from you.
