Ok, well, now that the song is done and running, I have started a couple of new sites with the One Ukulele name - http://www.oneukulele.com ( if that one does not come up, try http://oneukulele.weebly.com ) and http://oneukulele.blogspot.com

I like the idea, One Ukulele, and am subtitling it "celebrating the positivity and beauty of the ukulele." Not just wanting it to be about the song (which is what it is now) I would love to see what sort of things you might like to see on a website of this name? Any and all ideas appreciated. You did such a great job with the photos, I'm really looking forward to your input.

Thanks, Mike

As you may know, I run a uke blog - as in my signature - it started real slow, but you need to figure what your audience is - there are heaps of uke sites out there, but I took the view that I would aim my blog at beginners and those thinking about starting. Such posts are interspersed with funnies, techy stuff, pictures to break it up. Its working for me and now getting big hits

So I suppose my advice is - decide what your angle is, rather than just post any old stuff - if you are digging positivity and beauty - how about nice stories taken from folks on UU about how the uke has improved their lives or made them happy and intersperse it with photos of beautiful ukes?

Your site is great. I love the idea. I had been kind of thinking that, but you expressed it so well. Thanks, Mike

Here's a new blog entry that kind of gets at the sort of thing I want to do, but I also want to talk about all the ukes in the video, as well. Thanks for looking, Mike
