Testimonials

With Jo’s help, I lovingly crafted the website of my dreams. I’d been stumbling around on my own (in the dark) for several years, and this course, and Jo’s patient and detailed advice, helped me to clarify what I wanted, gave me the tools I needed to implement it, the encouragement to keep refining my ideas and loads of small (but HUGE) nudges on the way to website heaven. Thank you Jo, you’re my website guardian angel! Lauren Tober – Lauren Tober
Your Darling Blog was a seven week experience. Jo provided great lessons with many examples and thorough explanation of the content. And the most important thing, she gave extremely helpful feedback on each of my designs as well. I would love to recommend the feedback session. – Dewi Citra – Innocentia
Taking Jo’s Your Darling Blog workshop opened my eyes to the world of blog design. She helps you build a new blog design from concept to finished product, all while making it a fun & enjoyable class. I use the tools I learned during my workshop to this day & visit my archived class information often when I’m designing something new. I chose to do the Feedback option & highly recommend it because Jo helped me see things that I would never have noticed. The feedback add-on is invaluable and if I ever take the class again, I would get that in a heart beat. – Whitley Pollet

“As a designer I was a little skeptical about taking this course, but after signing in on day 1 my fears were quashed – the resource links alone made the course worth it! I felt my designs lacked originality and purpose and the Darling Blog workshop really helped me define my goals along with learning some new design techniques and really exploring my creative side (and I couldn’t wait to receive my email every morning to see what the next tutorial would be!). This has truly been a soul searching journey just as much as an artistic one! Jo is extremely talented and knowledgeable and the end result of my brand new blog design is even better than I had imagined. What’s more though, I have fallen in love with design all over again – I hope there will be a YDB 2!” – Nichole Williams – Kitten Lane
