An Impromptu Blog Review- Theraputic Family Law

Recently B. James Stinson, author of Theraputic Family Law blog, sent a comment and some link love my way. As a small token of thanks, I offered a suggestion or two for improving his site, which has good content but a few design issues.

Here’s what I had to say:

    1. Hey James, thanks for the terrific comment and the ‘link love’ to ADRPracticebuilder.com.

Last year we did a tele-seminar on websites and blogs with Lisa Welles. If I were channeling her now, she might offer suggestions like:

Ease readability by using a white background instead and increasing the font size. 60 million baby boomers get their info online, but only if they can read it!

Boost readership by having a publication schedule- bi-weekly, weekly or daily. If your content is valuable (and it looks like it is), people will want to know when to expect the next gem.

Make thing simple by adding categories or search function. An avid reader or a newbie will want to search quickly to find the post they need.

Last, consider turning relevant website section, which is very robust and valuable, intoa resource guide that you can exchange for email addresses or sell to create a small revenue stream.

Generally, I share this level of insights with my coaching clients on a Breakthrough Call. I had so much fun writing this comment I think I’ll turn it into a full post.

Want your blog critiqued?

Let’s try an experiment. I’ll review and offer insights and resources for three mediation blogs for free. I’ll select the winners based on the useful, insightful, encouraging comments you leave for James. Specifically, please help James think about:

  1. How to make the blog more user-friendly?
  2. What should be added or removed from the site?
  3. What niche should he target?

Try. Fail. Learn. Grow!
