    Working on my First Blog site, started today and would just like to get some opinions on. Have not done to much, currently writing Unique content as well speak. Im planning to post at least 2 posts a day but that all depends on how busy i aim.


    If you'd like to take a look and give me some options Post below or PM me for the link as i don't wish to post it publicly as im not sure if its aloud or if its a good idea.

    Ben

    I have just seen your blog. Your blog needs a lot of improvement. First of all, in the right side, your blog must have categories, and latest posts is good. But the design does not look good for your blog.

    You must have subcategories in your blog menu. And in your site title, you must have your site about, not your site name.

    And your site design need to be changed to attract visitors. You have to add facebook connect, and twitter follow to get your readers update. Next, is You have to attract your readers by latest news.

    Your content is unique, but it does not attracts, so you should make some attraction like technology sites. Search for technology sites, you will find how the sites are attracted.

    Good Luck Mate :)

    I personally really like the theme, its simply but looks professional so that will be staying. As you said the right side is empty so ill take what you said and add some more widgets. Not sure what you mean about you don't have you site name but what its about... Look on most sites including BHW, they have the site name.

    Cheers for the feedback mate! Got some changes to make :)

    Sorry for double post, for some reason it won't let me edit the previous one.

    So CazuaL, Overall, the blog looks very nice to me, i like the clean theme a lot, but there are still a few things you can do to make it better.
    • Stylize your posts, they all are totally plain text, use Bold,Italics etc, use Titles and insert Images here and there if relevant
    • Use Categories, and use the top bar to link to them, its a bit lacking that its empty
    • Add a few things to "Fill it up" From the bottom and top, just inserting a Privacy policy generated from a plugin and a contact form from another plugin will help your SEO Quite a bit and it will look a lot more professional
    • The Leave a reply box seems weird and huge to me, i would suggest some plugin that lets you use JS to minimize it and when you click a button ,it opens up the full comment box, it takes alot of screen real estate and makes the page look a bit bloated inside each article, plus, its not formatted well at all if you look at it.
    • Do NOT post as Admin, either change it so Author name is not shown, or change it, it looks pretty bad when sites do it in my opinion.
    • again with the articles, add some meat to them if you bother writing them, link to something if its relevant, or if you're article talks about something that pretty much demands a linkback to somewhere.
    • Fill up the footer with something, a FB/twitter fanbox or something is a good starter i think.

    I hope this helps :).
