Community Pool

The place for advice, feedback, and friendly blogging chatter.

Have you just published a new post and are dying for some feedback? Did you recently start your blog and could use some layout or design advice from your more seasoned peers?

Tap into the wisdom of The Daily Post blogging community and leave your question here in the comments. Others can then click through and offer input either on your site, or in the comments here (feel free to indicate which you’d prefer).

To help us make the Community Pool a productive space for discussion, here are some tips you might find useful:

TIP: To keep from losing your place in the comment thread while you visit others’ blogs, right-click on a link to open it in a new tab or window.

  • While you’re not required to, we encourage everyone who requests feedback to also reply to at least one or two other bloggers who need some help. Spread the love!
  • The Community Pool comments section can get quite big — and starting duplicate threads doesn’t help. Thanks for not posting the same question more than once!
  • If you’re looking for quality feedback, be as specific as you can. Questions about a particular post tend to draw more comments than ones about entire blogs. Questions about specific design elements are more likely to be answered than ones asking for general layout advice.
  • We discourage leaving links without a more substantive message or question. These are often overlooked by other bloggers, and we frequently remove them to make the comment reading experience smoother.
  • Please keep all comments civil and constructive. The idea is to have fun — it’s a pool, after all!
  • If you haven’t looked at our Commenting Guidelines in a while, now might be a good time.
  • No running on the deck.

    1. I liked the post on rumours. There’s a personal touch to it, and brings forth an important message not to gossip. To answer the question in the post – people spread rumours because it’s easy entertainment. It’s comforting to shift the spotlight on someone else and derive juicy discourse out of that, without putting yourself on the line. I think your article puts the ills of it into perspective.

    2. It is a great post! I never realized that choosing between right and happy has something to do with how I would actually feel towards events in my life. Now I get to understand why there are things in the past that I haven’t moved on from. (I believed I was right and others were wrong). Now I decide to consciously choose “happy” for most cases. 😀

    3. This was a great post, lol I tried to answer your question “How have you moved on from things that have hurt you in the past?” and I got a bit stuck.

      I guess I’m not really sure what has helped other than to put myself in the other persons shoes, the one that hurt me or the one that I accidently hurt.

    1. Hi Birdiih – you blog looks brilliant – far better visually than mine – I like the header picture and your ‘quotes’ really add to the feel of the page.

      Some things that might be worth thinking about –
      I’d suggest adding more tags – these are what will guide people to your page.
      Is it worth adding pictures? Either from your past or just ones that seem relevant from google search. I know I am much more likely to view a post in my reader if there is a picture – but maybe that’s just me.

      Good luck with this

    1. Living with mental illness is a topic that is dear to me and really hits home. For that reason I may not be the best person to give you honest criticism. I don’t know if I can be fully objective, but I will try.

      When you talk about being afraid that others will find out about your disorder, it’s touching. I know many people with mental illness feel this way; always afraid of being branded “crazy” and potentially dangerous. Most people with mental illnesses are a danger only to themselves.

      I thoroughly enjoyed your post about Aunt Dorothy. It made me think about my grandmother that I have no memories of. She suffered with serious depression and spent many years in institutions. In the end, she died at her own hands when I was very young. Everything I know about her has come from other people, and yet somehow I feel closer to her than many of the relatives that I know personally. I guess I feel like I can understand her in a way many people couldn’t. And maybe, if she was still around today, she could understand me back. I think your post was a very good tribute to your aunt.

      I think it was bold of you to share your religious affiliation with your readers. I don’t mean it as a criticism to say that you shouldn’t do that. It’s just that there is always the fear that it will turn some people off. I am a spiritual person but I reject the concept of religion. However, I strongly feel that everyone has a right to place their faith in whatever they feel is right. Of course as long as it doesn’t infringe on the personal rights of other people. But some individuals are not so accepting and might not read past your first mention of religion in general. I guess it comes down to how strongly you feel about it, and if it contributes value to your message. Maybe it does, maybe it doesn’t. I don’t have all the answers.

      1. Hello,
        I enjoyed reading your post. For me the main message was ‘make the best of it’ (I guess this is if life gives you lemons make lemonade). This is so important for me as there is so much ion life that you can’t change and letting it get you down is wasting your only shot at it that you have, so I personally would have made this the conclusion, but the idea of what is in your glass and filling it with love and positivity is still a good point.

    1. Hi Karen, love your post! Very positive and uplifting, especially for me a fellow pessimist! I find it difficult to see the good in my own life and I honestly think it has effected both my happiness and my chances for good things to happen! For some reason I get this idea that being optimistic is incredibly unrealistic and going to lead to disappointment. But I’m glad to hear that someone has overcome this issue! 🙂

      1. Great response! I think that’s the way to look at it. I think for some reason I always thought that if I was too positive, nothing good would happen, like as a punishment for expecting too much/thinking too highly of myself. How negative is that?! But it is possible to look at the bright side of things that happen and not be over the top/gushy/expecting good things all the time. Bad things do happen, but seeing the bright side is key! And then moving on.

    1. I actually liked the theme! It’s clean and zen. But I see what you mean if you want to spice it up a bit. I’m using the iTheme which lets you play around a bit with columns and gives more options for readers to click into on the side frames. I found your archives by scrolling down to the bottom of the home page, but if you don’t want readers to do that then perhaps switch to one with more columns (e.g. Twenty Fourteen)?

    2. I also quite like your theme, it’s nice and crisp so your images stand out really well. I use Twenty Fourteen (which Pixie kindly suggested to you), it gives you space to play around with widgets, and you can also choose nice large featured images which are rather eye catching.

      On a side note, your photos of Mexico are beautiful, it looks incredible. Keep up the good work 🙂

The student strikes, prior to Occupy Central, began on the campus of Chinese U. Supporters from the different universities have shown up to the protests. HKFS leaders are the ones talking to the highest government officials in HK.

        The other student activist group is Scholarism, led by Joshua Wong. Scholarism works closely with HKFS.

      I love your photos of birds. The layout of that particular post was great – with the different photos of birds in one neat square. Those photos were beautiful, especially the one with the rain.

      An idea for the homepage – perhaps add a “more” line to each post, so that posts are shortened and more posts could appear on the same page? Currently each post is shown in its entirety. As a reader I’d like to browse through all your posts and choose to read the ones that interest me, but right now I have to scroll through your latest post to get to all the other stuff.

      Nice job with the blog so far!

        Thank you for your feedback. I appreciate the time you took to review my blog and post a reply. Time is a valuable commodity.

        I understand what you are saying about the “more” line. I see that in other blogs, including yours. When I first started writing entries, it wasn’t an issue since there was barely anything there. But now that my blog has started growing, you might have a point. Unfortunately, I have no idea how to do that. I am new to WordPress and still trying to figure things out. I’ll go click some buttons to see if I can figure it out.

        I visited your blog in return. I like the variety in your posts. You discuss some very serious topics, but you throw in some lighter pieces as well. It gives my brain a break and clears the mind for the next serious piece. Well done.

      4. Last night, I edited my previous posts to add the “continue reading” line, instead of displaying full posts, as suggested by pixie. I decided that I will leave my most recent post whole, and as I add new content, I will shorten previous articles. What do you all think? Improvement, or misstep? Did I cut off each post in the right place? Am I showing too much, too little, or just the right amount?

But after reading a few entries, I have to say that I feel a certain warmth and light coming through in all your writing. You come across as an engaging, encouraging, and confident person with a positive attitude. The most remarkable part is that you want to share that with others in a way that inspires the best in people. In a world where so many people push others down, in the incorrect belief that by doing so, they raise themselves up, you are a breath of fresh air.

        That could work for the “more” line. Thank you for the information. I didn’t realize that I could add it manually and chose where it cuts off. I figured there was an option in the dashboard that did it automatically for all posts. This will take some more thought to make sure I’m giving readers just the right amount of information.

        I have never heard about the Shell Grotto before. It is very beautiful. I can’t imagine how time consuming it must have been to arrange all those tiny shells. I also enjoyed reading about how it was discovered and the mystery of who built it definitely adds appeal. Thank you for sharing it with me.

      2. Although you can occasionally find such interesting man made structures in Canada, it is not very common. I suspect it’s because up until quite recently, North America was primarily wilderness. Many parts of it still are. Some of the structures built by native Americans still exist, but they are very different in structure and theme.

        I just reviewed your blog and I have to admit, it is something very different from what I’ve been seeing so far here so I found it to be very captivating and your writing style to be very engaging!

        You got a great ‘About me’ page that really showcases your personality and talks about what you and your blog is all about.

        Overall, I would say that if you keep this up, your blog would explode in no time!

        The only thing that I notice that is missing is the usage of images for your posts. I feel that it might help a little in making your site look a little ‘nicer’. Choosing the right image and letting your reader see them can set a visual and mental setting in their mind to prepare them for what might be coming up next for your post!

      2. Hey Meredith,

        One of the easiest ways that I’ve found on how to get followers, is to do what you are doing now! Coming onto the community pool to check out people’s work and in return, have them check out your work!

        Of course, it is a really time consuming process and in order for that to work as well, you got to have good content.

        But, important thing is to not lose hope! Keep working at creating content while interacting with the community and when someone who has lots of followers sees your work and actually LOVE it and reblogs it?

        Your blog would appear in a lot of new reader’s radar.

        Some other advises would be getting your friends to read your work and of course, the usage of social media tools such as Facebook, twitter and others.

        But the most important thing of course, is to just have fun! If you enjoy what you are doing, your readers would see it and will be more likely to come back for more 😉

        I hope this respond helped in anyway and I wish you all the best! If you got more questions you’d like to ask, just fire em away!

        Your pal,

      1. Hey bud, I just reviewed your blog and here are my comments.
        First, I love the style of humor here! It’s very different from what I always see in humor sites so that is great for sure.

        Second thing I noted was that you have a twitter account but the twitter widget isn’t utilized which, I feel is a waste. Might be due to the theme you’ve chosen but if it’s possible, I’d recommend you to add the twitter widget provided in the dashboard site customization.

        Now, the layout is easy to navigate but I realize that you have no “Archive” page nor widget and I think that’s a pity cause your readers might want to actually check out your earlier post but they don’t wish to keep scrolling down the homepage before they actually reach it. Would recommend you to look into that as well.

        All in all, you got a solid idea, concept and you got the site design fitting in really well. I definitely want to see more from you and hence, I’m following you 😉

        Hope my feedback helped and please, keep up the good work bud!
        Cheers!

    1. Hi, I’ve read a few posts on your blogs. Very amusing, little stories and observations. Maybe you could reflect on them a little more instead of just accounting them. That will make your posts longer, and maybe you like to keep them short, but I think it will give something more to the reader.

    1. Love your blog style of writing and theme especially your uniqueness usage of the word ‘of’. Interesting style of conveying your thoughts caught my attention and definitely made me want to read more of your future post.
      New follower alert! Keep up the good work 😉

    1. Hi Barb,
      Your writing style flows well, and I like your topics & content. I am curious as to why your About section is in the third person, as if it was written by someone else.
      I find the best way to bring in more readers is to interact in the blogging community. Visit other bloggers, and here on the Daily Post. Best of luck!
      Karen 🙂

    1. Hallo there,

      I left a (short this time!) comment directly on your blog. It is currently awaiting moderation.

      I read your post about J.K. Rowling’s new project, but to be honest, I still don’t have any idea what it is about. I suggest adding a bit more of your own content and relying less on Twitter quotes.

      I look forward to seeing you on my side of the blogosphere 🙂

      1. Hi,

        Thank you so much for taking the time to check out my blog, it’s much appreciated!! I’ll be sure to take your comments on board.

        For this particular post I was sharing news on the project that had specifically been shared on Twitter, so the tweets were relevant to the post, but of course generally for my reviews and discussions it’s all me and my ramblings 🙂

        I’ll check out your blog shortly and will leave a comment for you. Thanks again for your feedback, it really is very helpful!
