SCRATCH is the perfect course for you!

Tabitha Philen, founder Inspired Bloggers UniversityHi there! I'm Tabitha Philen, founder of Inspired Bloggers University.

In 2010, I stood on the edge of a financial chasm filled with six figures in debt as three small children played around my feet. My husband and I were faced with the reality of poor financial decisions and his income was no longer enough to keep us out of bankruptcy.

While I wanted to help contribute to the detoxing of our budget, I knew that childcare for our brood would drain any additional income I would generate in a retail or office position. About the same time, I began using coupons to buy our groceries and became a master at getting a cart stuffed with food for pennies on the dollar.

A friend said, "Tabitha... you should start a blog!"

"What's a blog?!?!?" I wondered, and this began an amazing journey.

When I first learned bloggers were making money - and not just spare change but full-time incomes - by writing on the internet, I was stunned and confused. But, I was determined to learn everything I needed to do the same, spending long hours seeking out the information that pushed my blog to success and provided my family with a consistent stream of revenue, allowing us to pay off our debts, pile healthier foods in the shopping cart, and afford private school for our children.

I made a TON of mistakes along the way. Some of those early decisions still impact my success today, and it hurts my heart to see new bloggers struggling with those same issues. So I turned my years of research along with an assortment of hard-knocks into a class that would help you start a blog with a strong foundation from SCRATCH.

    There has never been a more aptly named class! I appreciated the methodical approach to setting up your blog- from scratch This was a great crash course and the lessons pertaining to understanding Word Press were extremely thorough and well done. Tabitha has the heart of a teacher. I would recommend this class to anyone who is intimidated by all the back end requirements of setting up a blog and just doesn’t know where to begin.

    I was a bit unsure about taking this class. I have been blogging since 2009, but I was brand-new to WordPress. SCRATCH was just the help I was needing. From Day One is no exaggeration – choosing a good name, installing WordPress, Tabitha is right there with each step. Not only did I learn this new language of plugins and themes but also good practices for SEO and other blogging basics.
