As a WordPress.com blog rookie, I found this course extremely helpful. I appreciated that the instructor has a calm, collected, simple approach and explains things step by step. Too many online course instructors race through their material and talk in a chatty-Kathy 100 mph style. I can’t keep up with those. But I can keep up with Barb! Good stuff. This is actually once where I feel like I got my money’s worth on a course and didn’t get ripped off.Rex Baker
