"I have been working on my blog for about a year and a half now, and this is the first time that I feel really confident that I can make this work. ... Lisa created an extremely successful business in just the last couple of years, in an industry that people are always saying is over-saturated. Just like any industry, there is a strategy to being successful, and the Create Your Blog Dream course is THE strategy for blogging."
- Jayden Copeland from Backroad Bloom
"This blog course was EXACTLY what I needed. I started writing blog posts about six months ago but had no idea what I was doing or what SEO even meant. After taking this course I have a clear understanding of how to create a great blog and know exactly what I need to write a good post. I am not tech savvy AT ALL and I was able to follow along with each tutorial. Lisa walks you through everything step by step with video instructions + worksheets. I highly recommend this course to anyone starting their own blog!"
- Laura Ascher from Our Oily House

"Lisa has generously shared a wealth of knowledge on how to create a custom blog site and how to get the very most benefit from your work. Each video is loaded with valuable information that would have taken me months or even years to learn on my own through trial and error. I’m thrilled and blessed that Lisa is willing to share this awesome step-by-step guide, and I cannot wait to create my own site based on all that I’ve learned!"
- Emily Barlow from Handmade Farmhouse
"Create Your Blog Dream is the perfect course for someone wanting to build a blog from scratch. The instructional videos cover every step and elaborate on the pros and cons for each decision you'll make as you create your brand and website. As an experienced blogger, it's unlike any course I have taken in my four years of blogging. Highly recommend!"
- Ashley Broviak from Little Glass Jar
This course is the best!! I have spent years trying to blog (semi successfully yet never made a penny) however, the hours upon hours it took me to figure out the tech stuff was discouraging, and the be honest, very frustrating. Just two days into this course and I am blown away by the clear content, easy to follow tech directions and suggestions and so much more. This is honestly the best investment I have made to date for navigating the blog building world. This truly is my ‘blog building dream come true’ for my home based business.
Hi! My name is Lisa Bass. I started my blog, Farmhouse on Boone, nearly three years ago, as a way to share my creative ideas and from scratch recipes, with others. As a reader of blogs at the time, I saw an opportunity to start growing an online audience and create an income for my family, though in the beginning I had no idea what I was doing. I jumped in with both feet, learning everything I could from Pinterest strategy to growing an email list and an Instagram audience. I was determined to create a business that our family could work on together. See, at the time my husband was working a 40 hour a week public works job. The hours and benefits were great, but we knew we were capable of so much more. After my blog made six figures in year three, I was convinced there is virtually endless opportunity online, for anyone in any niche. In May of 2018 my husband quit his job that he worked for over 13 years. Now we have the opportunity to work and raise our kids side by side. We make our living sharing our passions with others online.
Can you relate to any of this?
You have spent so much time researching all your different options for website platforms, hosting plans and blog themes, that your mind is overwhelmed. You’ve decided to put your blog dreams on the back burner for a little while.
You know it’s possible to grow an audience online and earn an income, but you have no idea where to start.
You have an idea for a blog, but you are stumped on how to come up with a name, logo, branding colors and a niche.
You’re afraid that it’s too late to start a blog, and you’re not sure how you can make your content stand out.
You have your website all set up, but now you have no idea what to even write about, or what type of content drives traffic.
When you post to Facebook and Instagram, you feel like your posts aren’t reaching anyone. You’re tired of trying to navigate the waters of social media without a clear plan.
You feel like successful blogs are reserved for professional photographers, marketing geniuses and tech savvy millennials. You fear you aren’t “with it” enough to get your blog up and running.
If you found yourself nodding your head to any of that, you are in the right place!
In the year 2018, the opportunity for creating an income and reaching a targeted audience online is greater than ever. I am simply amazed every single day at the power of the internet to reach people all over the globe. You just need to learn how to harness it.
When I started my blog almost three years ago, I wondered if blogging was already too crowded. I worried I would create posts that no one would even read, because so many people were already sharing similar ideas online.
How small my thinking was back then! The internet creates literally no bounds for how many people you can reach. Once you know how to create the right kind of content, and how to promote it, you are virtually unstoppable. I believe it’s only just the beginning!
"How I wish I had had this course when I started my blog two years ago!! When I began blogging, I was so excited. I had so many ideas and I couldn’t wait to inspire others and potentially even make money along the way. Unfortunately though, blogging quickly became overwhelming and frustrating. There were so many things that took me hours of research, and blogging left me feeling so discouraged. Lisa’s course has already saved me SO much time...she honestly explains everything you need to know to have a successful blog so perfectly in her course!! I love that she takes you step by step...I never finished a module feeling confused. In fact, if anything I felt inspired and motivated and excited to blog again!! This course will help me take my blog to the next level, and I can’t wait to apply everything Lisa taught me!!"

Thank you so much for creating this course and offering it at such a reasonable cost! I've been loving it and I feel so inspired. I'm actually doing things I've been trying to figure out for so long on my own. Your course just made it so simple and easy to understand! It was worth every penny and more!
