Community Pool

Where bloggers come for friendly feedback and advice.

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 and guidelines 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, as well as for not starting numerous threads in a single Pool.
  • 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. Also note that including multiple links in your comment might automatically put it in the moderation queue, which will delay its publication.
  • 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.

    1. Love your photos in your blogs.

      I played around in the theme customizer a lot, literally pressing every button to see what impact it has. Just be careful not to click the save and activate by mistake, I did that once and had to set my page to private whilst I reversed everything including looking for my original theme as I forgot the name !!

      1. Thanks Pauline! I love nature shots. I think there are a lot of stories about making mistakes on our new sites. Once I chopped off all the tops of my text somehow. I had to add everything back above the “read more” line in three of my posts.

  1. Happy first day of spring…Truly here (that’s my name–don’t where it out 🙂 ). I’d be delighted and appreciative if you’d read my latest post –it is a straight forward read that reveals more of my sensitive side…it also includes a link to the post I wrote the day before…that one is my usual type of offering–all riddles and wordplay and whimsy. Thanks ever so much…I’l be sure to return the favor. And, thanks again, Community Pool….your a lifesaver (pun intended) 🙂

  2. Hey, hey, hey, all of you bloggers and blog followers out there! There are brand-new posts that I have just published this past week, as well as a new DC Superhero Girls webisode from YouTube, all right here at that colorful blog called KALEIDOSCOPE, at http://www.j2w7.wordpress.com!(Yes, I know that this message is a bit short, but you’ve got to follow WordPress’ Community Pool guidelines whether you like it or don’t!) With love-JW

  3. On my blog Trump Weekly there was a new post published written by Jon Bochy, a good friend of mine. It doesn’t have much feedback nor many views. So be nice and leave some feedback: https://trumpweekly.wordpress.com/2017/03/17/trump-week-eight/

    I still have some open questions:
    – Is the sidebar well ordered?
    – Are the lists of the articles good and easy to find? (I want to see if you can find them 😉 )

    Keep it up y’all 😀

  4. Hi everyone! Please take a look at my latests posts, if you have a sec 😉 Here’s one about looove – https://yourbeautifuljourney.wordpress.com/2017/03/20/love-starts-with-you/ , and if you’re more into personal development, here’s another one you may be interested in – https://yourbeautifuljourney.wordpress.com/2017/03/12/battle-your-negative-patterns/ .

    Enjoy and share what you think! To show my appreciation, I’ll certainly take the time to look at your blog, too – we should all support each other here! ❤

      1. Then you know how hard it is to call it quits 😉

        Read your blog btw – didn’t expect a story with an innocent name like “The Beach” to be so creepy xD Fun! One thing though – it was a bit difficult to find the posts. The navigation at the top of the blog only shows the Home and About pages, it would be nice if there was a link to Blog there, too. Otherwise, readers have to look for the archives in the footer. Other than that, I enjoyed the visuals and the writing – keep up the good work! 🙂

      2. Thank you, glad you liked it! 😀 Oh… I thought the post were on the front page. I did have a blog-folder at first, but since I chose to attach the posts to the front page the blog-folder were just empty. I will look into it 🙂👍

  5. I’d like to invite everyone to stop by and check out my poem of the week, “For All That Is (And All That May.)” It’s a whimsical sing-song poem I discovered in an old notebook during the holidays and edited. Comments and feedback are always welcome, and please leave them in the comments section of the post page as well. If you like what you see, feel free to browse around, and follow along so you don’t miss anything as I post several times a week. Thanks in advance.
