Changing it up a bit

In a couple weeks, I will have a new look and feel to the Wax website. I feel like the last two or three years were all about survival for so many of our small businesses. My new site is going to reflect a much more optimistic outlook – my business has steadily improved over the past 12 months and I hope yours has as well. ┬áPlus, the designer says I look a little bit like Jesus in the photo. When you see it, let me know what you think.

I’m also going to change up the format of the blog and talk about my own clients and experiences quite a bit more. All names will be changed to protect the innocent (and ONLY the innocent mind you). I don’t know about you, but the last couple of years have given me a pretty big dose of humility. I feel like my readers will learn more from my personal mistakes and successes, than from just providing content. Although I plan to do that as well. I can’t really ask you to contribute your own ideas and examples without doing more of that myself.

So please let me know what you’re thinking and if you’re finding a mix of real world examples and content a better fit for what you need. Someone told me recently my life was like a never-ending episode of Seinfeld. It’s probably not nearly as funny, but we’ll see!

  1. I’m interested in what you do to prevent spam on your blogs. My busiest sites using WP as the CMS receive absolute spam attacks sometimes, and constant spam messages when I leave anything open (e.g. comments, the ability to create a profile, etc.).

  2. I use Akismet, seems to hold it off pretty well. There are a few in the comment sections that make it through but usually only a handful a week.

  4. Hi Bonnie and Gary,

    To stop spam I recommend Joomla witht the Chronform component, it gives you a Google captcha API that is just impossible to crack.

    You can get it here:

    Problem is you will need a web designer to set it up….

  5. I think the change is not enough content to help you connect with people, want people to know you then you need to submit your website to search engines or automatic search engine submission. wish you success.
