Hello SUN community,
My site/blog is http://www.decisionmakingtips.com
I have a fair amount of web design experience and used a modified wordpress theme, and created the site myself.
The goal/strategy of the blog is to get lots of traffic and subscribers, like any blog, but so far I have seen a jump in the traffic as we launched and a steady decline since that time.
I am looking for a general critque, but more specifically anyone with ideas on how to get more SEO juice, or good directories to submit the blog to (besides technorati), or ideas on how to optimize the content to make it more accessible to search engines.
Thanks in advance for your most valuable asset, time.

    PS- also interested in anyone with browser/compatibility issues. I am using a Mac with firefox and it looks fine, but PC folks let me know if you have issues.

    thanks, this is great feedback!!
    Now I know i have to start testing IE, yuck.
    Do you know which version you were using? I`m assuming 5.5 or 6.

    Most of the main places to submit blogs to are already part of the default install of wordpress so you won`t have to worry about that.  It`s all automatic.
    however, there are some that you can submit them to.  Here`s a list to get ya started.  Some of the links may not work (around 5 or so).http://www.blog-connection.com/submit-blogs.htm

    Thanks for the advice, Craig.  We have been struggling with focus since launch, and I like some of your suggestions (especially pull-quotes).
    Very interested in more about the content, does anyone else have trouble understanding the content, or feel it is unfocused?
    Again, SUN community, thanks in advance for your time.
