Darren is a veteran of 15 years blogging, having created numerous blogs and demonstrating you can make a good living as a blogger.
The very first sentence of Step 1, "I don’t believe that every person should have a blog", made me believe that the team is genuine and honest. So I gave it a try. Among all the useful content Darren and his team have provided for FREE, I appreciated the questionnaire "Is a Blog Right For You?" the most as it made me think in depth and set me in the right direction. After answering to every single question, I had more confidence and was able to enjoy the other steps.
I have been blogging off and on since the early 2000s. I have started several blogs and quit several blogs. So, the reason I took this course was to see if it could ignite in me a renewed passion for blogging and also help me create a new, more sustainable blog. And the course did just that. I am excited about blogging again and am looking forward to putting what I have learned in the course to good use.
I've been a hobby blogger since 2004. I've used Blogger and Wordpress.com, but I decided it was time to step things up, take the plunge and go self-hosted. The course helped me every step of the way, with great support from Darren and Laney and all the other new bloggers. In the Facebook group, there's a real sense of community and excitement. This course gave me the kick I needed to continue blogging, taking it to the next level.
