"I purchased your course and had my child development blog up and running within a week! I thought it was really straightforward with great tips. I loved that it was not overly “wordy” as I’ve seen on other how-to blog guides. The key advice for me was thinking of blogging as a marathon and not a sprint. I’m very excited for what the future holds!"
"I need to thank you, Crystal, for being a huge help in getting my new blog started. My goal was to have it up and running by June 14, but after completing your first Blogging University class I published my first post on June 2"

"I've blogged irregularly for years just as a way to journal, and have become so overwhelmed in the past with my passion to make it something more… My site is launched (with a few stressors and frustrations)!! I COULD NOT and WOULD NOT have done it without your class… you made something possible that would not have otherwise been possible. THANK YOU."
"My site has now been moved from Wordpress.com to Wordpress.org. Thanks a million times over for your help in pointing me in the right direction... I was completely confused, and I'm afraid I'd still be floundering if you hadn't helped me. I'll be forever grateful for your assistance and the Blog Startup 101 Course!"

"After turning my wheels with a hobby blog for two years, I switched domains and launched my new blog at the end of April. All the information that you've been putting out on social media, the website and course has been JUST what I needed!! (Seriously, perfect timing!) At the end of May, I had 2,700 pageviews and using some of the strategies from YourBloggingMentor, I was able to jump to more than 27,000 pageviews for June!! So, THANK YOU! And I look forward to following and implementing strategies that you share!

"Just wanted to let you know that after months (maybe a year) of starting and stopping, trying to get my blog to work, I accessed your Blog Startup 101 from my Ultimate Bundles - Genius Bloggers Toolkit. I have a blog! With an actual post! Starting on Step 5, and then I will be on to WordPress 101. Thank you for the step by step instructions. I didn't feel lost or overwhelmed. Looking forward to the rest of the series!"

"Starting a blog can be incredibly overwhelming and it's really easy to get lost in the weeds. Blog Start-Up 101 is PERFECT for sifting through those weeds and getting right to the heart of exactly what you need to know and to do to start a successful blog. The course and workbook provide perfectly detailed tutorials on everything. Not only is the information fantastic, but Crystal is incredibly knowledgeable, so very likable, and down to earth. You will not regret buying this course!"
"It’s been wonderful to be able to rely on the information in Blog Start-Up 101 to tell me exactly what I need to do to get my blog up and running. There are so many things I never would have thought of—like the Social Warfare plugin—and I just know I would have realized I need social media sharing buttons sometime in the future and then spent hours online trying to figure out how to make that happen. It has been nice to be able to just follow the step-by-step instructions in the course to get all the little details like that worked out so I can focus my time and energy on writing blog posts."
