    Hi everybody!

    I'm not sure it's the right place but here it is.
    I have decided to start my personal SEO blog as 2016 long term project. About me information can be found at blog itself - seoowl.net. I'm proffesional SEOer working with clients in health niche, that's where I specialized. My clients run licensed pharmacies in USA, few health bloggers I work for plus about dozen personal websites selling health related products and services, 90% USA traffic.
    This is not something I did for money, I'm not milionaire, my monthly income is around $15-25k (after all costs) Please don't ask me for account balance, I can photoshop you even $10 milion numbers.
    Goal
    I started whole thing a week ago as an experiment, from scratch. I approach SEO bit otherwise, I treat Search Engines are pure machine and I don't divide white/black/grey techniques. More about it in "About SEOOWL" section on my webiste. I don't have any financial big plan for it, I decided to start whole project mostly to see comments about my SEO knowledge and technique. I know there is plenty of high traffic SEO blogs, run by really smart guys. I don't want to compete with them. I went through most of SEO wisdoms in past 4 years, there is almost every SEO tool I had been using. I have lot of thoughts and tutorials to share.
    Design
    Wordpress, I came up with design (BeTheme theme) and color scheme but I'd love hear your opinions.
    Technical
    So far it's hosted at shared server, when time is right I will move it to dedicated server.
    Video
    I will also record videos, YT channel etc.
    Monetization
    As mentioned above, it is project, it is serious project I will work on whenever I can. I have so much SEO ideas that I knew one day will start sharing it. Website will be monetize in future, maybe with affiliate programs but I'd rather figure out something diffrent. No need to cash it now.
    Traffic
    Ideas big guys have to bring traffic to blogs are pure gold, there is so many ways. I decided to go my own way, like in my SEO mostly. I will post any changes on traffic sources but I will start to contribute to whole IM society as much as I can. Probably I won't hunt for blog comments as source of traffic. I know everybody does that so I will look for other sources, I will post here whatever I came up with. SEO forums and maybe a bot BuzzBundle tool (always wanted to try it)
    Progress
    I hope to post update every two weeks traffic update plus othere relevant information about my blog project.

    Thanks for attention, Im really looking forward for this SEO blog, especially in such competitive niche.

    P.S. I know I shouldn't be asking for but if you find any of post I made already interesting please place releted comment. Thank you!

    That highlighter color background killed my eyes quickly. Since you want visitors to read I would choose more passive color tones for the blog.
