    I recently started to restart my blog. Found this article very helpful. Plan to upgrade to self-host in a week or two. Can’t wait to go at this again and succeed! !

    Thanks Ruth! I’ve been putting real energy on my blog for one year now. So I’m just wondering what do you consider “just starting” 🙂

    For a hundred million reasons, I can not wait to start EBA! After personally blogging since 2009, I started a public, monetized blog in Sept of 17. I’ve already achieved a significant amount of success and am beyond ready to learn from a legit-blogging-pro to keep the momentum going! I am in it to win it and won’t relent.
    Counting down the days to March 5, 2018!

    Always a good reminder, especially when it’s so easy to get sidetracked by this course, or this challenge, or this ebook. I have to force myself to ignore and just write blog posts!!

    I have nearly the basics laid out. I just need to have a few posts for people to read. I want to focus on minimalism and my personal story. I know people have gotten income from it but how can I do it?

    As a current EBA 3.0 student, I’m guilty of all of these. I’m so grateful to have the structure you created and have realized many times over that you have to build a solid foundation before trying to do “all the other things.”

    Getting caught up in perfection has been my Achilles heel. This post is what I needed to put everything into perspective for me. Laying a REAL solid foundation is what I have been lacking and can’t wait for EBA to start.

    I have loved the step-by-step order of EBA. I just finished Module 1 (content) and I’m moving into Module 2 (promotion). It feels like I’m going SO SLOWLY, but now that’s it’s time to start promoting, I find that I’m nervous! Good nerves, but man – nerves! Thank you for the kick in the pants to promote like my blogging life depends on it!

    Thanks Ruth, this is the kind of sensible, no-nonsense information I need right now!
    Hoping to join your EBA soon 🙂

    Great info! Seems like I may need help with the promotion piece for sure but I would love to find out if there is anything else I need to work on. I also wonder if I have found my “people” yet. I am not getting enough traffic to really get a handle on that. I am seriously thinking about EBA for the next step in my training.
