    This course and, of course, blogger must stay around

    I'm excited that all of the important things I wanted to learn about professionally designing and configuring blogger templates are in this course. I haven't even completely finished the course, but decided I better do a review quickly. Why? I didn't want to miss the opportunity to encourage Andrew and his course to stay here on Udemy. I love this course; And, I've fallen in love with blogger because of the course. Before this course, I was trying to make a major decision on spending money and setting up a word press self hosted site or doing free blogging with blogger, then transferring to a paid word press blog later. But after, taking over three quarters of the videos in this course, I'm going to give blogger a more than temporary chance for hosting my blog. I love the template designs and sample blogs Andrew used. He's covered all the types of blogs for business, personal and freelance needs. Luckily, I resonate with his ideas of what a professional blog should look like. As each person has a different eye and creative orientation, you may want to enhance and customize your template. But, if you don't his ideas are ones that you'll be proud of. A tip: review all the course videos, then go back and walk through doing sample templates of your own. Stop the video and apply each lesson to a sample template. In no time, you'll be able to create your own template fluidly. Once you set up blogs with his designs, my sense is that bringing your own artistry to the designs will be easy. So, Andrew I hope you and your course stay right here on udemy. And I hope you'll produce even more courses. So now that I've got Andrew and his course covered, I hope that blogger sticks around especially since I no longer have an excuse for not using it. Thank you Andrew. I wish you success with all of your business goals.

    Great course: very practical

    Thanks - I really learned a lot on this course and was able to apply it to my own blog site. Some things were a bit out of date, but Dr Google was able to fill in the cracks.

    • Adam Smith

    Great work!

    Well made, easy to follow. For beginners and intermediate users. Flawless and best of all completely free. :-)

    • Linda Kro

    Learned a lot

    The class was taught in an interesting and methodical manner. It is easy to take breaks and come back to it.

    • Peter Nicho
