  • Hi Matt – did one of the learn to blog sessions a few weeks ago and thought I`d share what I`ve done so far. Thanks for the great training videos, I would have been lost without them.


    • Awesome Christine! So glad to see you’re getting results!

  • Very good video. I’m going to check out the rest of the site and then will register for the free boot camp. I have had a couple of personal websites before but removed them because they were taking up too much of my time and few people were reading my posts. I’m currently on Squidoo, but want to start another website again.

    I am a member but having trouble setting up the blog, have to come up with all the categories and subcategories, and really confused about all of the plugins and widgets. Your info is great but I guess when one is 74 yrs. it takes a little more time. Plus finding the professionals to contribute to the blog, then figuring out how to make the money.

    Hi Matt, I am just starting and watching the first boot camp video. My domain is registered with another hosting service, Blue Host. It is expiring soon, but is it better to stay there or transfer to Host Gator?

  • You did that in 10 minutes sharp Matt! Kudos. Video is very clear. And you created a nice platform for bloggers as well. Very clean website. Like it!
