Whether you’re celebrating Thanksgiving or not, for many the frenzied sale activity on the weekend following Thanksgiving - from Black Friday to Cyber Monday - does present a great opportunity to take advantage of some incredible deals on things that will be useful to you and your blog.
As bloggers it’s a good time to reflect and take stock of 2017, and also to make plans for 2018. Some of these plans may involve changing or developing your blogging in new directions and perhaps employing new tools or services to help you do that.
At ProBlogger we’re thankful for our vibrant community of bloggers who are all striving to improve and follow their own individual but intertwined paths to have a positive impact on people’s lives. We’re gearing up for a big 2018, helping you improve your blog and helping new bloggers to get started on the rich and rewarding journey of blogging. Specifically, we’re launching a ProBlogger blogging course in the New Year.
We’ve reached out to our preferred suppliers (for whom we’re an affiliate meaning I get a commission if you decide to make a purchase through my links, at no cost to you) and put together some great deals to offer you on tools and services for your blog. We’ve combined it with a 50% discount off all of our eBooks (and our already discounted full library) to give you a head start on a successful year of blogging in 2018.
In anticipation of our new courses next year, we will be retiring our eBooks, even though they’re great evergreen resources. Enjoy 50% off any of the eBooks you haven’t yet added to your collection, or the complete library until midnight PST on Monday 27th November.
Monthly hosting price drop to $2.65/month USD for the Basic Plan or $4.45/month USD for the Plus and Prime Plans

Whilst Bluehost is great if you’re just starting out, we’re also hearing a lot of very good things about WPEngine if you’re looking for hosting of an established site with more traffic (or want to position yourself for that in the future). They are more expensive but are WordPress specialists and are doing some great things for bloggers.

The premium theme supplier that I have used over the years and highly recommend is StudioPress. I’ve used their themes in the early days of numerous blogs and love their design but also support. Updating your theme is a great option to give your blog a new and improved feel.
Expires in 5:00pm MST Tuesday November 28th
Something a little different from Thrive Themes - no discounts (you can read their excellent reason here), but 50% of revenue from Thrive Membership sales during Black Friday (only) go to the charity micro-loan platform Kiva.org. To join in, become a member on Friday (if you're not a member yet). Or tell your friends to join on Friday (if you're already a member).

And on that last note, only buy something if you think it will really help you make a difference to your blog, not just because there are deals on. As an affiliate partner we do get commissions which help us keep the blog and free Facebook Group running. What? You don't know about our group? Come and join us here.
