I'm working on setting up my myspace page especially for the business. I don't want to connect myself in photos or my name to the business b/c I do get plenty of weirdos on there. So that's the main reason I'm making the page seperate.

I want to post pictures though...got any good ones???
Also any ideas for the blog or what else to add I may not have thought of?

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
You can surf the net to find all the pictures you could ever want until you can get your own pics... just make sure they're not Copywritten.

As for the blog, why not write a weekly lawn care tip? ...or you could talk about your day "in the field" when you get home from mowing all day long.

...and I do NOT blame you about disconnecting your personal picture from your business MySpace. You'd have every Tom, Dick and Harry in your local area contracting you to come to their house for a free estimate just to look you over. BE CAREFUL!

You know you bring up some really good points!

What is the best topic to talk about in a blog that would attract your customer base.

Ok, I am gonna play with some ideas here but what about different beautiful yards you see in your area. Projects you have or are working on. Volunteer projects you work on. Home outdoor decorations.

Yeah exactly, and what if one wanted to hack me into pieces...that'd be no good!!

I swear I went grocery shopping with my kids and still got followed out to my car twice by odd guys.

So I'm getting my permit to carry. Just in case!

Well, if you don't mind me saying this, you are an attractive young lady... so I can see some weirdo guys following you around.... I wouldn't blame you if you did carry... lol... OPENLY carry... with a small sign attached reading something like "If you're close enough to read this, then you're close enough that I don't have to aim that hard!"

Yeah I swear it's always working against me, lol!!

I'm afraid people will think I'll be afraid to get dirty, or since I'm skinny not strong enough. I've had that happen in a job interview once, the guys didn't think I was strong enough to do the job.

And yes I'll probably openly carry as long as I know they can't grab it...I'll have it attached to me anyway, not in my purse, lol!!

Probably a better idea, anyway... at least you can say "Yes, that's my work" if anybody asks! = )

Yeah I'm searching through my own personal photos, there's gotta be something in there I can use. My other main hobby is photography.

That raises a good question. Does anybody here carry? If you accept cash payments or if you do work in rough neighborhoods where your equipment might be stolen while you are in the back yard, I guess I can see where carrying might come in handy.
