Glad to be here.
Welcome. Please create a signature so we'll know your name. Are you going to Atlanta in August for NAMS8?
My name is Gracie McCray. I am a homemaker and have been tinkering online for about 4-5 years. Making everything fit and having a plan that works is my main problem.
I would love to learn how to build mini niche sites on natural skincare products and how to live a healthy lifestyle. I recently had one site built. I am not sure if I can place the link here. So I will not.
There are a few changes that I plan to make on this site.
• Rewrite my “About Us” page and make it more me as suggested by David Perdew.
• Replace my header.
• Find someone to proofread my contents before publishing to the Web.
• Learn how to setup Facebook and Twitter for this blog.
• Listen to live training replay for monetization techniques for my site as suggested by David Perdew.
I am reviewing Wordpress videos at MyNAMS Member’s Library.
I am open to any suggestions and looking forward to getting to know everyone.

It's OK to post a link to your site so we can answer specific questions.
You might want to change your optin form a bit. These days you need to give a good reason why people should give you their email address. The title of that top post is the kind of benefit to highlight. So if I give you my email, what's in it for me? Also you might want to have just two fields: NAME and EMAIL. Then change the button from Submit to a call to action for the benefit like "Send Me the Tips". If the giveaway is an ebook, having an image of the cover might work well.
I use "might" because you just have to test the various components of the form (headline, image, button text, colors, etc) to see which one converts better.
Thanks for the suggestions, I will make these changes before promoting this site.
Gracie - one correction here - and it took me a long time to learn this - make these changes WHILE promoting your site. You'll always have something to fix, so just accept that and keep promoting - that's job #1.
Thanks for the input. You taken away the stress of wanted to start with a perfect site.
I have rewritten my "About Me" page and will post on my blog this week.
