    I would like to have my new blog site reviewed. I'm new to blogging and WordPress. I am particularly interested in 1. Why I have very few hits. (215) in a month and almost NO comments.

    Thanks and I need this blog site to be effective so let me have it. Thank you.

    Hello there,
    I looked because I think your name on the site is great. However when I saw the site I have some remarks that I will give because I wish somebody had done that to me when I was in your situation. Ok here it goes:

    1: You need to decide whether you want to be a recipe site or a writing Butler site. You can't be both no matter what you say.
    2: Look at the basic tutorials at this Forum site and at WordPress.
    3: Research what other sites who do writing services like you do for their clients and how they work.
    4: Check out Odesk.com to get some help with SEO and other things on your site. You have nothing as far as I can see. Do not use Odesk until you can give clear instructions to whoever is going to help you.
    5: YOUR SITE IDEA AND NAME IS GREAT. Stick to that, study, focus on only that in your research, find out exactly and in detail what you want to do and go for it.
    Happy New Year.
    Balli

    Thank you very much Balli. Very informative critique and everything you commented on and suggested is very valuable and I shall follow up immediately. I might just close the blog until I feel it's ready. I do appreciate your honest and intelligent review.And I'm sure you are correct about discontinuing the recipe section. My (muddled) thinking was that as I specialize in the hospitality industry as far as writing is concerned, that might attract some attention. I see where it would not and I'll use my recipes and other things in a new blog I am creating. Again my thanks.
    The Writing Butler.
    Happy New Year to you.
