I think you have a very attractive landing page, although it took me  a few seconds to decide where to click next to actually get into your content. A lot of blogs I see automatically publish at least a teaser on the landing page so the reader can begin reading immediately. Your actual blog posts seem to have a lot of white space to me -- viewing from a laptop (not mobile device) at the moment. I like all of the <Read More> prompts. I'm considering this with my site.  Passing along one additional piece of advice that I recently received -- edit all of your photos to include your website. It helps to build your brand and helps [a tiny bit] to prevent others from using your images as their own.

Best of luck! I welcome feedback as well.

thx! i really do appreciate it...i see what you mean about putting the blogs on the front page....when i was initially building the site, i thought it was important to have a simple home page (kinda like the cover of a book)....but the more i look around, i see that its not really necessary...and thanks for the tips on the picture....i'll make sure to do this....and about the white space, do you think thats because i dont really have alot of content yet?

awesome feedback btw.... :)

It's hard to say what's causing the white space. I'm no pro at web design [yet]. Does your layout allow for customization in the margins? Mine does, so I fill it with menus and ads. It's up to you!

Hello
I am new to blogging, and checked out your site. I guess my first question is, are you still blogging? If the answer is yes, then my next comment may be to add more content, more often. People say bloggers need to write all the time, even if its just one small thing a day, people want to get to know you and look forward to reading about what you have to say. I also found it hard to navigate through your site and figure out what your blog is about? It's pretty though and it made me want more, so thats a start.
check out my blog at: lifeinnorthcackalacky.com and tell me what you think
thanks
Mandi
