"Starting a blog to help supplement income after leaving my job as a RN to be home with the kids has been very important. I wouldn't be on the right track without this course. I have been absolutely blown away by the amount of information in this course. I went into it thinking that there would be some help in getting a blog up and running, but never imagined it would be this detailed. I've taken college courses with less information than this course. As a busy mom of 5, with a newborn, it has taken all of the guess work out of how and gave me an easy roadmap to get started with and a great community of support as a bonus! Hands down worth every penny! I couldn't recommend enough. "

"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
"Lisa has an incredible talent for teaching and guiding! In both her "Create your blog dream" and "Youtube Success Academy" courses, she gives step-by-step directions making overwhelming things seem so simple. I am a visual learner, so I have benefited greatly from her teaching videos, especially as she shows you exactly what steps to take. Lisa is an encouraging instructor and has a broad knowledge of these subjects. I feel that through these courses I have gained every tool I need to move forward with growing my brand and business! I'm so thankful that Lisa has been so willing to share her time, talents and secrets for success with us!"
- Emily, the Handmade Farmhouse
"This blog course was EXACTLY what I needed I when I started my blog. I 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!"

"I took Lisa's course when I decided to turn my hobby blog into a business. CYBD helped me niche down, learn how to get my posts seen on google and a year or two after implementing Lisa's strategies, I was able to join Mediavine. As a Lyme family, the additional income has brought so much peace and stability to our home. Thank you Lisa for helping us get there and for the continued support you offer!"
- Autumn, A Traditional Life
"Lisa's course has absolutely everything a beginner blogger needs! I never considered blogging until I took her free masterclass, and that sold me on the possibilities with blogging and my need for her course. I went through the course step by step, and every section was clear and actionable. The facebook group has been so valuable when I've had specific questions or needed encouragement to go on. I began to make consistent income 18 months in and by following the principles in the course with consistency, my skills, confidence and income continue to grow!"
- Errika Horner from The Home Intent
"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
"Before this course, blogging was my “someday” dream. When I saw Lisa’s course, I said, “If this girl can teach me sourdough, she can teach me blogging!” And it’s true. Lisa demystifies blogging in the same straightforward way she tackles anything. It is full of simple, actionable modules that walk you through exactly what you need to know to turn your dream into a real business."
- Deirdre, Kindling Wild
Hi! My name is Lisa Bass. I started my blog, Farmhouse on Boone, eight 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 2024, the opportunity for creating an income and reaching a targeted audience online is as great as 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 eight 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!
"I had no idea what I was getting into when I started Lisa's create your Blog Dream Course! I had no idea how to start a website, and no idea where to even go to learn! I was not, and still am not super tech savvy! But, Lisa's class made it so easy to understand. Her class took me step by step through the process from start to finish! I recommend this class to anyone wanting to start a blog! I am excited to say, that in just around a year of hard work and determination, I was able to apply for Mediavine. (If you take her course, you will know what a challenge that can be!) I would be nowhere without her course! And to top it all off, this class gives you access to a group of others who are also on the journey of creating and monetizing their blogs! So much encouragement, tips, and ideas shared there! I am forever grateful for Lisa's Blog Dream Class! She allowed me to actually fulfill my blog dream!"
- Kara, Grains In Small Places
"Gleaning from Lisa’s years of experience and going through the step-by-step tutorials in CYBD has been invaluable. I also really love the private Facebook group for bouncing ideas around and learning from others’ experiences! I’ve now monetized my blog and can see a clear path to it becoming a source of full-time income—I know without a doubt I never would have gotten it off the ground without Lisa’s course."
- Tiffany, Growing Dawn
"I started my blog almost 2 years ago, and I am SO glad I took this course first. Using all of the information that Lisa shares, I was able to easily build my website and start blogging without wading through all of the guesswork that so many new bloggers waste time on. Lisa is the best blogging mentor, especially for busy moms who are building a blog in the margins of their day. In this course, she completely breaks down the process, making each step easy to understand. From building a brand to beginner photography - it’s all here. This course is well worth the investment!"
- Sarah, Stay at Home Sarah
"How I wish I had had this course when I started my blog 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!!"
