Hi Amber

I visited your blog and would like to share a few of my observations.

  • About page. Suggest adding an About page.  I think you could include a lot of information from your 2017 Blog Goals.
  • TMI? I sense you have a strong desire to keep it real with your readers by your bluntness and transparency.  Highly commendable. However,  do your readers really need to know you started and stopped several blogs in the past?  Who's to say you won't repeat the same pattern a few months down the road.  This may make it difficult in establishing a major following.  Maybe you could spin it that you wanted to combine the best of your previous blogs - photography, etc in this new blog.
  • Load Time. Your site appears to load fast which is great!
  • Pictures.  Your pictures are some of the best I've seen online - they look very professional
  • Colored Buttons.  Consider replacing your grey social media buttons with some colored ones it would be an nice accent to your Home Page since it would compliment your title, "Fustisland."
  • Font size.  Consider increasing the size of your font to 14 or 12, my preference is 14 but I'm old and bigger font are easier to read.

I learn so much by reviewing wonderful blogs like yours.  Thank you for allowing me to add my 2 cents.

I second the social media icon color suggestion! That would look cool next to your rainbow title. Keep it small like you have it but mix in the same colors?

And the TMI tip. That's a good point. Update your readers but too much will I/won't I talk makes it hard to want to commit as a reader.
