Community Pool

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

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

The Community Pool is for peer feedback and advice. Looking for more specific information? Check out some of these resources:

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).

Looking for free, self-guided courses to help you get started with your blog (or revive a dormant one)? Check out our current offerings at Blogging U.

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

  • 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!
  • 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.
  • If you haven’t looked at our Commenting Guidelines in a while, now might be a good time.
  • No running on the deck.

Are you a new blogger looking to share your very first post? We have a special forum for bloggers just like you in our weekly First Friday posts.

  2. The best part about this community pool is it doesn’t matter if everyone showers before jumping in – and there’s also no lingering smell of chlorine!

    Check out my newest edition to my little corner of the universe. If you like it, hit follow! I’d love to expand and follow more blogs, so if we’re a good match lets be blog buddies!

    (Come on, you know you want to use my hashtag…. ;))

  3. Just started a book blog. It’s still young, but it’s mostly (and thus far) spoiler free book reviews and bookish musings. Would love some feedback. I’m new to the whole book blog world, but books are my passion so figured I’d give it a go.

  4. Hey everyone! I’m an amateur drone pilot looking for advice on some photography that I’m taking. I’m having a lot of fun and I’d love to be able to do these for people as a tiny business. Please let me know if you have any suggestions! Check me out at newflightphotography.wordpress.com

  5. Hi!

    This past week I’ve posted my first two posts on my blog and would love some feedback on the layout / general vibe. I’m new here but would love some pointers!

    I’m not entirely sure the direction / niche I’m aiming for (I feel like solo female travel is definitely already covered) but early days!

    Thanks guys

    1. This is interesting to ponder. For the typical driving scenarios, the self-driving car could easily become more skilled than people. As you noted; however, there will sometimes be unusual happenings beyond the programming of the self-driving car. How could a computer progammer ever think of ALL the possible things that might occur? It would be foolish of us not to insist on an override switch. https://gracelead.co

    1. The two posts you have are enjoyable to read. Above them is a place holder post that came with your theme. It would be nice to delete that since you don’t need it. Putting a few words on your About page to tell us the purpose of your blog site would also be nice. https://gracelead.co

    1. It’s an interesting post. Your artist friend answered from the perspective of someone or something being his muse. I think you asked what it was like from the perspective of the muse. My guess is that someone could be another person’s muse and not even know it. If you are a muse and know it, I agree with you, that could be a burden. https://gracelead.co
