    1. A couple of things which are more of my opinion things. I find the gray text hard to make out. I also think you could split some of the larger paragraphs because I see some thought transitions within them and it helps with general readability.

      At the very bottom where you mention that it is a static page, you can also add a link to your blog feed (I personally would link the words “TSOM News”), this way people don’t have to mouse up if the cursor is near the bottom.

      And if you want, maybe add some pictures, mostly because I like looking at static pages that include pictures. 🙂

      1. Thank you for your reply!!!! I find it interesting that you’re not the only person who has said the text is hard to read.
        I’ll definitely add the link for “TSOM News”. And once I get some good pictures, I’ll be sure to add them!
        Thanks for everything!

      2. I agree with Green Embers, the gray text is hard to read. I find the low contrast difficult to read and I’d suggest the using a larger font and split the paragraphs. You have a unique point of view and valuable insight to share. I’m looking forward to seeing pictures when you post them. The best is yet to come!

    2. I have not read any content as yet but as a purely visual thing the knights head with the read square background looks out of place.

      With the Menu, I wonder if it maybe getting a little “busy”, there are lots of TSOM references, would they not be better maybe as child menus of a main one called TSOM.

      I like the background picture, it is a nice picture but not in your face so much it takes you away from what you have written.

      Text size is good and it is clear.

  1. Dear all, I have been writing reviews of books, movies, and music since 2008 (omg already?) and have a hard time getting recognition for my blog – http://www.saharsreviews.com – so I’m thinking there is probably a lot that I can improve about my site which I just don’t see. Is there anything you think would contribute to making my blog better? Is it the content or the presentation? Etc!

    1. Hi Sahar, there is a real sense of community to review sites. I would suggest (if you are not already) reaching out to others – comment on others’ reviews and get discussions going just as others appear to be doing with some of your reviews.

      I just read a couple of reviews. You have got some very fine work going on you blog. The reviews are excellent. Moreover, blog has a very nice and modern look to it. I liked it.

        I guess best way is to engage with other bloggers by commenting on their blogs. Moreover you can try to use social media, Facebook, Twitter, stumble upon etc, and request viewers to provide their feedback on the post.

        Hope that helps 🙂

    3. You know, I have this same problem at my own review site. I have been giving it some thought and I think reviews don’t really elicit comments unless someone is really interested in the thing you are reviewing. I think the big thing as others have mentioned is to make sure to comment on other people’s reviews etc.

      Also maybe have some sort of editorial/opinion piece about things. Those tend to do better for me.

      I’ve been asking other reviewers for guest reviews on our podcast as well to help get some cross promotion (which if you’re interested in giving a guest review let me know).

      And finally you might be getting more traffic than likes or comments as people outside of WordPress stumble on your blog (but don’t want to deal with the hassle of WordPress commenting system). I have a friend who lives across the country where that is the case.

      Your review blog looks great to me btw. 🙂

      2. “Reviews don’t really elicit comments unless someone is really interested in the thing you are reviewing”. I think this is probably key, A number of years ago I used to write movie reviews for a website, there were hardly any comments on them, I wonder if people just read reviews to either confirm their own opinion on something or to see the general consensus on what others think of that film / book / product etc.

Is there a way to reduce the size of what is read in the boxes on the main page that picture the book and link you to the reviews you’ve written??

Incidentally, I am a new blogger and have put up a longish but breezy travelogue on my Homepage. I’d greatly appreciate it if you took out the time to have a read and tell me your thoughts. Many thanks.

On the other, it is really, really long, so much so that after awhile, I didn’t feel like I was enjoying a wonderful day in Japan, but rather that I was being dragged along. Perhaps you could keep your unique style of writing but tighten the language, decrease repetition, add pictures so that you can tone down on the description in the text, that might help. Keep writing! And enjoy Japan.

      2. Hi Sahar, thanks for your feedback. Yes, I realise my write-up is very long. I’d put in a lot of detail on purpose actually as it was initially written more as a my personal journal entry. But after several of my friends read and appreciated it I converted it into a blog. The decision not to over edit was again mine as I wanted to retain the detailed daywise narrative. It’s interesting how some readers found that aspect appealing while others got annoyed by it! I will be mindful of what you said. So thanks again.

    1. The story in itself is good, and you are, in my opinion, a good writer. Your story is heavy though both in subject and in paragraph length. I would suggest looking at this short story like very rich food: you enjoy it if you take it in little bites. If you eat too much at the same time, it becomes overwhelming. Perhaps making the paragraphs shorter would make it an easier to read story, as well as making it more powerful. Thank you for sharing!

    1. Hi Cyril, OK, I checked out your blog. The look and feel is really nice, I like the white, the cover picture is nice too (although I get a grey border to me left and right although that might be my resolution). But it looks clean and professional.

      I am not sure what you are looking to achieve on your blog? I found on some posts the content was too short with regards words, sometimes of course some posts don’t need much in the way of words, but when there are multiple posts that way then I wonder why I am reading.

      The pic with the flower that has (I assume) music followed by a pic of a book, even the lake Nicaragua was not that lengthy, if you’re writing a blog so people get to know YOU then expanding on these things sometimes is nice.

      In total contrast is the day nineteen just write, it is a wall of text.

      Text size is nice and clear, nice font too.

        I will take your recommendations at heart and try to expand on the text going together with photos and music. FYI, the shorter sections are quotes from my novel.

        As far as traffic to the book goes, it’s not much. But the blog is not geared toward that right now. It’s more a platform to share with people and if they happen to brows and check the book out then that’s a plus.
        I added the little blurb about the novel on top of the picture as you suggested.

    2. Bonjour Cyril 🙂

      Your blog looks great – it’s a nice clean format with clear to read text, and the pictures are also really nice.

      The content is a little harder to assess. I found it a little confusing and didn’t understand what you were trying to achieve. I have the same problem – I wanted my blog to be a way to sell books, but then I used it as a place to put random collections of stuff.

      What I have done since 2008 (it has been and still is a long learning process lol) is that I use different platforms for different things, but I make sure to “intertwine” them. So my Facebook page – http://www.facebook.com/saharsblog – is about my writing in general. I post general updates there. The first of my blogs – http://www.saharsblog.com – is a “demonstration” of the kind of writing that I do but features unique content. The second of my blogs – http://www.saharsreviews.com – is a “demonstration” of how I consume media such as books. My Pinterest – http://www.pinterest.com/sahar009/ – serves as a way to illustrate the images I have in mind when it comes to writing, and my Tumblr – http://sahar009.tumblr.com/ – serves as a random collection of mostly reblogged things that have to do with anything I like. I am still trying to figure Tumblr out, as well as Twitter.

      So basically, I would suggest that you hone the use of your blog, to clearly show what it is meant to do, and stick to it. So in one of your replies, you said that your blog is “share and advertise my work (novels) and two, share random things from my life with people (writings, photos, music). And a third one I guess, being in contact with interesting people, using my blog as a portal to others’ blogs.” I think that either you should change from a blog to a website that includes a blog, or “assign” each of your goals to different platforms.

      Gosh I wrote a LOT more than I was intending to! I hope this was clear… If it isn’t, let me know and I will try to explain it better.

      2. I understand blogging is important. But if you have the muse to shoot – go do it! Reformatting your page will always be there. What you want to take for photos may not be.
        Go enjoy the day ! 🙂

      1. I like the layout of this theme. The only challenge with it is that because the pictures are laid out as such, a reader doesn’t need to click on them – and might miss out on the fact that you share some thoughts on each shot!

      2. There are a few things I don’t care for, like how to find older and newer posts is wayyyy down at the bottom. And like you say, the ability to view the photos w/out clicking on them. But it seemed the most advantageous for showing the actual work itself, so I purchased it. I’ll probably change my mind again (female prerogative and all), but for now, I’ll see how it goes. Thank you for that feedback! My thoughts are less important than the beauty, I suppose 🙂

  6. Hello friends

    My interests include politics, history, sports, movies and music. I have started to blog regularly over last couple of months. I blog regularly for a couple of blogging & newspaper sites on history, politics & sports. I am trying to polish my writing skills by responding to daily prompts. Although accountants and creativity don’t go well with each other but I am trying. In future I intend to work on writing some fiction.

    I ll appreciate your feedback on my blog and posts.

    Happy blogging.

    Thank you very much.

    1. The content is good, the layout is good, but I am not sure about the colours. The text on the main page is a little hard to read, and I feel like there is too much going on because of the various colours – the widgets for example that are white and the pictures etc. But it might be a personal thing, why don’t you wait for other feedback and see if it’s just me or a general consensus?

      1. Thank you for your feedback. Well I am simple person and tried to keep layout simple as well. Some of themes are quite modern looking but I feel it’s not user friendly. Widgets are both personal and for viewers as well e.g letting them know of my twitter and good reads accounts.

        I ll try to check whether I can customise and improve font readability.

        Thank you very much for taking out time and giving feedback.

      2. Thanks a lot 🙂

        I have plans to write on so many things, music, movies and history in particular. I will be tailoring my blog in future accordingly. I have a very busy work season ahead for a couple of months. Hopefully I ll be very regular after a couple of months.

        Hopefully you won’t be disappointed 🙂

  7. Am told I have a quirky outlook on life. Through my blog I try to convey some of these views as I travel about and manuever the world. Am wondering if my writings are too random to capture a faithful audience…

    1. It looks good. I am not a super fan of the header background, but I think that is part of the theme.

      On a side note, love the idea of a dedicated blog to audiobooks.

    1. Hi, Cielo!
      Since my blog is all about being girly, I can’t think a blog could ever be “too girly!” LOL! I think your blog looks great, however, the only thing I could think of to make it “less girly” would be to change your script title fonts to more legible font. That could help your blog be less girly and easier to read at the same time. Just my opinion! I hope that helps! =)

    2. Not too girly looking at all. Font is crisp, legible, topics easily viewable. Maybe you changed something betwixt your query and my view 🙂 It’s ‘cute’, graphics reflect that. Who is your intended audience? That’s key. Good luck!

      1. I did make some changes. My intended audience is supposed to be people (men and women) b/w 20-50. I just wanna sure that my content is appealing to both the genders. 🙂

    3. Hmm, it doesn’t seem too girly to me. Your colors are fairly neutral with blues and greens, I guess with the more pastel colors it could be kind of girly, but I don’t think so. (So not a designer so might need a second opinion on that, lol).

      1. Thanks ,I did make some changes today, But my question was directed towards the content. I should have been more clear. As a man, would you read what I post on my blog? 🙂

    4. I don’t think your blog looks too girly (and I’m not the girly girl type so I’d be the first to say it!). The content is probably loaded more towards the fairer sex though. I do love your post on interracial dating – good on your for seeing the adventure. Let the haters hate, you know if it’s working for you.
