Community Pool

Where bloggers come together to give each other 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.

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.

    1. “They’d all seen it coming but were too polite to mention it.” Wow, I really loved this short story! It was very well written and showcased a lot of beautiful imagery. I have my suspicions of who the main character is but I would love to know who it is! I would love to follow you and read more of your narratives!

  1. Hey everyone! I recently posted two new blog posts, the first one being a summer 2017 playlisthttps://hellohalima.com/2017/07/21/refresh-your-playlists-p1/ and the second being a long read about inconsistency and anxiety and how the two sometimes go hand in hand within our lives https://hellohalima.com/2017/07/26/inconsistency-n-anxiety-what-gives/

    I would love some feedback on both or whichever one speaks to you! Please follow back as I would love to have more writer-friends on wordpress 🙂

  3. Would someone be willing to check out my posts and provide feedback of any kind. More than anything I want to help others and myself, find happiness in all situations. It can be a very difficult task because we have all been conditioned to react off our emotions. The Happiness Project aka Happy Nappy Project, was something I thought of a few years ago. Recently it was something that became a reality when I activity decided to change how I thought. I want to build into doing podcasts and possibly videos also. Any advice is much appreciated.
