This is just a small blog, I know.
It doesn't make any money.
I don't sell anything or my soul to the highest bidder.
I don't write as often as I should.
I don't take pictures like I should to share with y'all.
But for some reason I am averaging 70-80 visitors to the site per day. That's cool, I like that. Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy... but still.
What does it take to get my audience involved? How do I get you guys to comment, ask questions or make suggestions? Are you coming here accidentally? Did you click just to see what the crazy German-Cajun is ranting about or showing off today? These are all very serious questions I am asking you and I do sincerely hope to get an answer.
I truly want to share the culture of Louisiana Trades with you all I want you to learn about the cool details and odd features of our furnishings and structures. I want to show you some of the experiences and journeys I have taken down the rabbet hole of researching and emulating the construction of these pieces with the very tools those original craftsmen used.
So the real question now, is what do y'all want? What do you want to see more of and less of? What can I do to make this site more interesting to you personally? More pictures / less words? More work in progress? More artifacts and historic pieces? What can I do to engage you? I want you to learn about what I'm passionate about, this is the reason I do this for free. How can I better do this and teach you more?
Please do help me out. I want honest critiques and suggestions on what it will take for this blog to be truly interesting to YOU.
ps. the above pictures are a couple of Creole Cypress pieces in our collection.
