You have to make a decision on if you would rather be spending your time woodworking or as web designer/maintainer. It is an ongoing project to keep one working and keeping out of trouble with people trying to break into it (especially if you deal with money.)

Two points:

Most Search Engine Optimization is garbage. The search engines explicitly work at filtering out the optimization and will in fact score you down for having. It is seen as “gaming the system”. Just good plain text tags and content is enough.

As far as the blogging, It is a lot of work to keep content fresh and interesting. I played with it a while but it was more than I wanted to deal with. Nothing worse than stale content. Mine sucks miserably. Plan on at least a post a week to make it worthwhile. Much longer than that and people wander off. Much less than that and you will be spending all your time blogging and little else. Try keeping one here and see if you like doing it. You are not going to find much friendlier software to start with and you don’t have to deal with maintaining it.

-- Woodworking shouldn't cost a fortune:
