Please Review My Blog - Looking to Learn and Improve
« on: Jul 11, 2015 @ 10:59 AM »
Dear Fellow Bloggers,

I am looking for some constructive criticism to improve my blog  FertileBrains http://fertilebrains.com
So, request you to please visit my site and let me know your review comments.

Some questions that I am hoping to find answers to through this peer review are as follows:

1. Does FertileBrains blog show up quickly enough?
2. Is the look and feel of the blog decent enough?
3. Is the navigation easy or confusing?
4. Content-wise, do the blog posts succeed in conveying my thoughts properly. Or, are the sentences too confusing? In short, is the content engaging enough?

Thank you so much for taking time to read my thread entry.

Appreciate your help in improving my blog.

Cheers,
Daisy

Daisy,

Upon first look at your blog it looks great. It loads quickly and is easy to navigate.

I have a question for you, do you get many visitors?

There are a couple of reasons I ask this. The first being that I do not see a lot of posts in your archives, only a few a month. Second, I do not see any comments on your posts (the few I looked at). Your posts are very long and informative, but there is no call to action after the post to encourage your readers to leave a comment. For example, I looked at Educational TV Shows, and Tips and Tricks for Traveling and neither of these ask at the end what your readers think. You can always ask if they have any tips to share or what their favorite shows are. Lastly, some of your headlines are not very engaging or interesting. For example "short story #3: the door" doesn't make me want to click on it. Maybe choose a better title to make people want to click on it.

I hope these tips help you!

Dear @Cassie_rae ,

Thank you so much for taking time to review my blog. It means a lot! :)

I am glad to hear that my blog's response time and navigation are easy.

Regarding number of visitors, I get about a 1000+ visitors per month (as per google analytics), which I am hoping to increase to a  better number over time, of course. Would appreciate any pointers on this too :)

I have started blogging from Oct 2014 and am not really able to get more than 4-5 posts out a month on average. (Right now I am at the 50th post mark).

I am definitely going to implement your suggestion for call to action and making the titles better.

Once again, appreciate the time you have taken to review my blog and provide me with constructive feedback.

Thank a ton!

Cheers,
Daisy
