I emailed Rachelle from Landlord Rescue and told her that she’d won the contest for the second Blog Critique and that if she wanted me to do the video she had to let me as brutally honest as possible. She wrote back saying, “You can’t save your face and your ass at the same time“. Challenge accepted.

Get involved guys
Rachelle is one of a small group of commentators here on Blog Tyrant that has made this whole thing worthwhile. Without those ongoing comments, feedback and community vibe I would have stopped writing before all the success happened. I hope in some way this video serves as a mini “thank you” for all the comments and help you have given me and other readers here on my site.
Please watch the video and give as much feedback on Rachelle’s blog as possible by leaving a comment on this post. I’m not the only “expert” here and I really hope that these critiques become a bit of a jam session for everyone to get stuck in to the poor soul who put their blog up for examination. As mentioned, I’ll only keep doing them if they get enough good feedback and help enough people.
Some of the things I discuss in this video are:
- The importance of wording in your About page
- Why the color blue and purple are important in photos
- Why Feedburner email forms need to be edited or replaced with Aweber
- Why Pamela Anderson’s breasts shouldn’t be on Rachelle’s site
- How to use emotion to get more subscribers
- Much more
I’d really love to hear if you guys have any more suggestions or disagree with anything I have said. The community here at Blog Tyrant has a habit of bringing out some real gems in the comments section when a debate or discussion gets going.
