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’ve always wanted to start a blog as my dream job after college is to be a journalist. However, now i’ve made the blog i have no idea what to title it as or what my first post should be. I want to write about things that happen to me day to day and how i’ve handled them. Please help

    1. Hello, I read your post and would love to hear more about what it is you find beautiful on the walks. The picture you posted is very pretty and suits the monochromatic theme. How did you find it? Were you looking for it that day or was this from the past? What season was it? Is that something you normally see? What were those dried buds? It would be great to hear more. I like how you spoke about walking with your dog and always finding something new. It makes me want to read more about how you came upon that particular photo.

  2. Hello, I have just started in June and am struggling to get subscribers for my mom site. I mostly post tips like in http://nonamom.com/a-little-homework-for-parents/ , which are also published in our local magazine (for free so far but receive free ad space), but I wrote one that shows more of my personality http://nonamom.com/are-we-watching-the-same-movie/ . Do both seem like good reads or is one more appealing? Also, is the main site layout pleasing (www.nonamom.com)? I want to show a breadth of articles versus a chronological blog since my posts are unrelated to each other. I would love feedback from the community and will review others in return!
