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.

  1. Happy Monday everyone!

    Last Married Mondays post, I talked about ways to recover from affairs and betrayals. In that post, I just touched on the very beginning stages of recovering from affairs, betrayals, and lies. Today I am going to be talking about when extreme measures need to be taken by the betrayed partner. There comes a time, when no change happens, where you can’t put your life on pause forever and… https://millennialmrsandmom.com/2018/01/29/in-house-separation-married-mondays/

    1. This is from so long ago; but still resonates with me! And I think that, in itself, shows how much your simple writing can really connect.
      It’s really well-written; and be sure to keep us updated on your adventures in New York!

  2. I recently posted an article about the healthcare system on my beauty/self-care/food/big ideas blog. I’m afraid maybe it’s way too different for my blog, so I guess my question is, how many niches can one have successfully?

    1. There are a lot of really awesome book bloggers on Tumblr. I’d check them out for some inspiration. Also, if you read horror/suspense, I’d love to send you a free ebook of my collection of short stories to get you started! Good luck with your blog! The world needs more reviewers 🙂

    2. I really hope you come to the blogging community, the more the merrier!
      A couple of tips I’ve learned based on my own experiences and what I’ve seen on other blogs.
      Firstly, tagging your posts is a great thing to do. It helps direct people to your post when they look for a particular tag and also helps you discover other people who may be doing the same thing.
      Secondly, pictures are your friend. I personally love seeing a picture at the beginning of a post, helps attract viewers too I imagine. Good luck!

  4. I’d like to invite everyone to come by and check out my poem of the week, “The Creative Spirit on a Cold Night.” It’s been a cold January, and I’ve been inspired by the icy nights. Thinking over the several poems I already wrote, inspiration hit for this one. It’s about and for all of us creative souls. Comments and feedback are always welcome, and please leave them in the comments section of the post page, and click the like button on the post page. 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.

  5. I love the idea! Anybody got the time? Please check mine. I’d really love to “tap” to long term wordpress bloggers. Please bear with me, I even get confused with this mobile app. I am open to any constructive opinions 🙂

    All the best,
