Thanks for the course. I've had my blog for a few months now and this lesson gave me some good ideas on how to improve it. I did already know a lot of topics in this course like posting but I did find most of the information very useful especially since I'm not a web designer and I don't really know how to do anything fancy. This made WordPress seem really easy to use. Most of the free tutorials that I've seen on WordPress are for business and since mine is a review blog it wasn't very helpful. I recommend this course if your not sure where to start with improving your blog or you want some advice on getting more followers.

Thanks for the course. I really enjoy the coverage of topics. Deltina is very prepared for each lesson. Her quick coverage of the topics will enable me to start my WordPress site with a blog immediately after finishing this course. I will definitely recommend this course to others that are interested in learning WordPress.
