Graduate feedback about this course:

I would like to thank you for providing and teaching such great programs and materials. I had a trully enjoyable learning experience within the Fashion Image Institute. I have taken three great courses : Power Image Consultant, Colour Analysis Consultant, a Fashion Blogger, and I do not regret a one thing about it. More over, I am planning on taking even more courses with Fashion [Stylist] Institute.  All of the course[s] were well organised,  effective and straight-to-the-point. The modules in [the] Fashion Blogger Course allow [you] to start building your actual blog while you are still on the course. I received a lot of useful information, which I did not find in other books I was reading on How to do your own  Blog, or How to be a professional Blogger, etc.   I also liked the fact that the information in the courses provided was up-to-date, and the materials provided at the completion of the each course are great help for starting your business immediately. Thank you for providing such quality programs. I now feel even more confident in building my blog as well as my main image consultancy business and  serving my clients more efficiently! Anna Heenan, Certified Fashion Blogger

Dear Ms. Armour, I just finished the FSI Certified Fashion Blogger course. What a wonderful introduction to a diverse and quickly evolving topic. The content of the course could be useful for someone starting their first blog or yet another blog. Blogging was never my primary focus but I have dabbled in blogging in the past, with limited success. The information, tools, and suggestions from this course will improve my blogging skills, editorial scheduling, and site marketing. I am confident the next blog I create will be far more successful than the last, which is great because continuous improvement is a key goal. Kaizen!  Sincerely, Thai L.

I have to compliment you on such an engaging and horizon broadening course!  I learned SO much, not just about the initial subject matter (blogging) but it opened several new worlds to me as I searched out answers to various assignment questions.  This occurrence was the icing on the cake for me.  The course was entertaining, applicable and thought provoking.  The delivery platform works well (online, was my choice) and on the few occasions that it didn't, help was never more than a quick email away.  I appreciated the fact that each assignment came with teachers comments, which assisted in me understanding somethings more in-depth and that they never took long to grade.  I will be taking at least one (possibly two) more courses within the next few months and I can't wait to do them, this was really fun for me and how often can you say that about course work?  Thank you for such a delightful experience, this school has been a great way for me to dip my toe into the new career that I've chosen, feeling really prepared and excited about the prospects! Warmly,  Joan Davidson
