  1. Hello,
    I hope this is an appropriate place to pose this question. I’m having a hard time with the WP music player in the sidebar of my blog: squareonenotes.com
    I can’t tell if it’s an operator error or if it’s my computer? Would you mind stopping by to see if you can get it to play more than just the first track?
    Thanks, Sandra

    1. Hello- I read your blog and also left a comment. You mentioned you love making citations and providing excerpts…I believe it would be even more interesting if your could cite the book or the source from where you are making a quote since some of them are really lovely! Good luck! 😀

      1. Hey sure, a lot of stuff I write are random shit created in my mind, which I term as personal anecdotes and I would from next time definitely try and provide citations for the quotes where they exist! Keep in touch 🙂

  4. Hi! I started a blog about a month ago and have posted a few posts. Now that I have some content and readers can get a gist of my blog, I would love your feedback.

    I would like to know what you think of the blog itself, the posts, the theme I have chosen, anything missing that would help me get more readers to my blog and anything else that you liked about or disliked about and also how I can improve the blog. TIA, really appreciate your time 🙂

    1. Hi – I read your blog and found it quite interesting. Design, food and books are really avid and diverse themes to write on and you pull that off pretty well. I am counting on the idea that you are looking forward to some suggestions, and would like to advise you to create different pages for your three themes and post accordingly. This would make navigation easy for your readers and allow them to scroll to the section they are most interested in. Not only that, then you would be able to trace which page is getting the maximum likes and will be able to draw which particular topic works best for you and will be able to accordingly work on the other subjects. 
      I also think making your blog more aesthetically appealing would enhance your content. Try using a more personalised header for your blog, and maybe add some colour to the background! Good luck and cheers! 😀

      1. Thank you for the comments! I especially liked the one about different pages.

        I would like to know what kind of a personlised header do you mean for my blog, any ideas?

        Once again thanks!

      2. I wanted to suggest something which actually speaks for your blog’s theme 🙂 You could use an illustration from the internet, a quote that describes your blog’s concept against a nice background or perhaps you could devise a logo for your blog! Anything which reflects the mood of your blog… for I believe it will work better than a flower which is much different from your blog’s concept 🙂
        I am glad to have helped! Cheers 😀

  6. If somebody could look at my blog for me and give me some feedback good or bad I can take it, But I don’t know if anybody out there is reading my blog so if somebody could just tell me if I am doing something good or not it would be extremely helpful
