The course is kind of monotonous. Could have been better if the teacher was a little more enthusiastic and the presentation was bigger font.

This experience was perfect for me because I had no knowledge about blogging. This course provided the fundamentals and what is needed to get started. I will continue with more advance courses and ultimately pursue this as a new career.

I had already researched quite a bit and have my website set up and ready to go, so I don't feel this course took me beyond what I already know.

There's a lot of information. I will have to take it at least one more time to understand and take action on the ideas.

Firstly I enjoyed that the lessons so far were easy to follow and was talked through with a gentle, encouraging and positive note. It is looking good so far and I feel like its not going to be a mammoth task or at least made to feel that way. I like that!

Very basic, which is good for people who have never heard of bloggs, which I guess is the case for the older generation. Anybody else, however, is familiar with most of the issues talked about here.

It's painfully slow and even if I was just a beginner that had NO idea about what a blog even was this information for the first 3 lecture is pure common sense. It needs to be far more engaging and upbeat its just not catching my attention at all. Im glad I only paid $15 for it.

I feel I can really start a successful blogging biz with this course, the instructor was very knowledgeable and encouraging.

Rhonda7 August 2017

Good general information. I would prefer a more in depth course as far as setting up blog pages, joining and finding ad networks or affiliate marketing partners. I would like to see more in depth information on setting up ads on my page even if the course costs more.

Rikki3 August 2017

It was great! I learned so much. I sort of knew what a blog was, but had no idea how to get started or where to go! I have the tools and knowledge now. I starting right away. Thank you again!

Vina26 June 2017

Lowanna27 December 2016

I found this course to very helpful and insightful. I feel as though I may be ready to jump out there and start a blog, and that is what I am going to go. Once I have this done I am going to message you with the link to my sight so that you are able to view it and maybe comment on it as well. Thanks again.

Good and very helpful course for the beginner.Presentation is engaging and instructor speaks very clearly.I really appreciate this course and thank Ms Washington for her time.

Stephanie20 August 2016

I thoroughly enjoyed this course and the instructor's deliverance. Alicia was simplistic and spoke clearly and at a great rate, not too fast nor too slow. Also, teaching in short intervals was a brilliant idea as it helped me not to feel as though I was taking in too much information at once.
