Really useful information
I just about hired a website developer for my new business, but the final bill was going to be at least $4,000. I just went through this course and I was actually able to build the website myself. Thanks for the great info! It was also really nice to learn about search engine optimization. I know that's something I'll need to know to be successful.

Not as hard as I thought
I tried using WordPress a few years ago but couldn't even figure out how to install it. The installation in this course was super simple and I'm kicking myself that I couldn't figure it out. I'm on my way to building my first web site!
