I am producing a blog for my business and was hoping I could get some constructive criticism. Please review the blog and let me know what you think. I plan on adding more photos, how-tos, etc for prospective clients to view and laugh at. LOL. Thanks. Here is the link:

Hey Keith
sounds interesting and I wanted to subscribe to support your blog but it seems the only way to do that is through Rss and this something I don’t know about other than Martin offers the same feed here and that I haven’t found a need to sign up.

Hi Keith, Considering your area, I would take the references to real weapons out. It might turn some potential female clients off. Maybe a few guys to boot, ?? See if you can get some one who is good at it, proof read your grammar. A professional presentation needs to have “to”, “too” and “two” in their proper places.

Your stuff pretty much speaks for itself brother.
Remember to keep your blog short & sweet and let some of those eye popping pictures fill in the blanks.

Having a business blog is a great idea, but beware of how much personal info you put out there. You want to be personable which attracts a certain clientele but you don’t want to say too much. ie. I would not talk too much about the “downs” but focus on how you succeeded and talk about what you really love about woodworking.

I have seen some great business blogs, and what they tend to focus on are business related events you attend and your opinions and finds.

I certainly approve. I also looked again at your website. I wish you would perhaps rethink the name of the catigories entitled “Paint Grade” and “Stain Grade” as I think it does a dis-service to the wonderful work you do. This nomenclature suggests some sub-quality in the paint grade work. I know the difference between the two and what it means but I think your work deserves a different title.
