Input on my blog? - January 26, 2010, 12:09 PM

Hey guys,

I mainly post on .com () but now I'm trying to broaded the forums I'm active on since I'm looking for content for my blog. For the past 6 years, I've bought & sold bikes on craigslist, but as I'm getting more responsibility at my desk job I just don't have time to go chasing deals like I used to. Since I still enjoy "window shopping " for bikes, I figured I could start up a blog where I post deals on bikes I find on craigslist, ebay(dc, md, va bikes), and other local bikerforums. I hope this will be a useful tool for riders who are looking to get a bike at a really good price.

I'd love to get some feedback on the site as this is something I've just started to put together in the last week or so: www.cheapmotorcycledeals.com

Thanks!

Sorta, I try to screen out the spammers so right now its a manual process where I give the ads a quick once-over before I list them on the site

Looks good, well-implemented. Have you considered adding a motard/dual sport/dirt category? I don't know how much play it would get but probably some.


How's my posting? Please direct all concerns and inquiries to DCSBN's chief content manager, Hollywood, via PM.

Good call, I think I've been using the standard category for the dual sports but it would be good to break it out a bit more with dirt
