Frequently Asked Questions

When does the course start and finish?
The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish.
How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
Can't I just Google Markdown and find all of the information?
Yes! That is what I did. I found lots of information - lots of confusing information, located on multiple sites. And guess what? Not all of the information worked on my Steem blog. That is why I created the Steem Markdown online course. I wanted all of the information to be located on one easy-to-use site. And then I tested the information (and will continue to do so) to make sure that the Markdown formatting I teach works on your Steem Blog.
