Community Pool

Where WordPress bloggers support each other with 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 more information about custom domains, advanced design options, and other enhancements for your blog? Find the WordPress.com plan that’s right for you.

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.

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.

  2. Anyone else feel like the world is in a chaotic madness sometimes? For a few months its going great, then it falls downhill … fast? Do oyu have a “When it rains, it pours” kind of life? I know it all too well! But, even with three teens with Autism, a husband with Autism, and my own Anxiety and Hypochondria, I still find myself loving my life and everything about it! How do I cope? Read my newest post “I’m Going To DIE! but not today.” https://justkat127.wordpress.com/2018/01/19/im-going-to-die-but-not-today/

      1. It’s true… but there is something about the slightly curved tops (and lack of trees) that make the mountains in the UK truly gorgeous. Even more so when they’ve been sprinkled with snow!

  3. Hello again, all of you bloggers and blog followers out there! This week, I plan to bring back an old feature on my blog that most of you have enjoyed for a while, but have missed it so very much…😢…So, which feature that I am bringing back? You’ll have to pay my blog a visit this week to find out! Meanwhile, if you have enjoyed my special series on “YouTube Superstars” and would like for me to do such special series like that in the future, please drop me a line by leaving a comment below any of my posts! Oh, and in the words of Columbo, just one more thing: My latest e-book, “DOVER, DELAWARE IN BLACK & WHITE” , which is a black-and-white photo book featuring photographs of some of the landmass of Dover, DE, will be released in Amazon Kindle format only on February 6th, which is next week, but if you would like to pre-order my Kindle e-book so it would be delivered to your Kindle or your smartphone that has the Kindle app, just go to the Amazon Kindle Store at http://www.amazon.com and just look up “DOVER, DELAWARE IN BLACK & WHITE”! Other than that, there’s going to be plenty of good times ahead this week at KALEIDOSCOPE, and all you have got to do to join in on the fun is to follow my blog! Just go to http://www.j2w7.wordpress.com! Well, I’d better be getting back to work, to work on my writing, that is! Hope everyone has a very blessed week🌹! Take care, With 💘-JW

  5. Hi, my blog is new and about poems and thoughts on love and heartbreak. This is something I wrote for Daily Prompt, but only after that day got over. Until then, I was playing with words in my head and this is what came out in the end: My Lovehttps://moonlightlovepoems.wordpress.com/2018/01/28/my-love/ Also, I posted a poem a while ago and I was on a posting spree so it got buried. I have got next to no feedback on it and would love some. It’s called 18 Days Without You https://moonlightlovepoems.wordpress.com/2018/01/26/18-days-without-you/

    1. like crowdedmind said, take a look at your “About” page. When you click on “My site” in top left corner and then “view site” you are able to see your blog the way we see it. And on top, next to home is “About”. Edit this page. Write something about yourself (introduction) and/ or something about your blog (what is your blog meant to be about). It will help others get to know you a bit better and know what to expect from your blog once you write more posts.

  7. Happy Monday swimmers! Can you believe January is nearly over? 😃

    I run a daily British English blog, though I’m American, and essentially I post a word or phrase of the day, define it, then use the word in an example. But wait— it’s much different than a dictionary definition!! I use the word in a story or poem to give readers a better grasps than a five word sentence the dictionary passes off as acceptable. All works are original. I also like to use Irish, Australian, and Scottish words, too. Oddly enough, nobody has requested American words….

    I just finished a new trilogy, if anyone’s interested! For me, it’s a suspense. I’d love to hear your opinions on it, if a longer piece is your interest. (I think total it’s round 1700 words.) They are: It Won’t Do, Plummy, and Blinking, all in a row.

    If length is not your thing, I posted a short poem today.

    Now I’m off to dive right in!

  8. Hey folks!

    Honestly, I’ve had my blog for almost a year, but it’s only in these past few weeks that I’ve been trying to get into the groove. So here I am, presenting a little insight into my blog with a link. Hope you like it! All sorts of feedback are much appreciated! 🙂

    If you love analysis and metaphors, you’d definitely like my blog. This post is based on a 1983 German song entitled 99Luftballons.
