I like the look of your blog! The colors really pop!

Just one suggestion, I would cut out a couple of your ads. It looks like you are just trying to make money and they are cluttering up your page. If you want to keep them, have them blend in with your theme a little better. For example, try to have them match the size of your sidebar, the colors of your site, and make some of the bigger ones a little smaller.

If you only want to remove one, I suggest removing the one right at the top in your header. I know that is most likely the one you are making the most money with, but personally, it was the first thing I saw when I looked at your site. I understand that you want to make money, we all want to try to make money, but when I see a blog full of ads right off the bat, I tend to not follow them.

Other than the overabundance of ads I think your site looks great!

@mmgordon98

At first glance, the only thing I would recommend is turning on friendly URLs (permalinks). Currently, your posts and pages show a URL http://www.whatsallthebuzzabout.com/?p=204 with the post or page ID. In this example for your post titled That's a Thing? it's ?p204.

This is not SEO (Search Engine Optimization) friendly.

You can easily change this so it would show something such as http://www.whatsallthebuzzabout.com/thats-a-thing/ by:
  • Logging into your WordPress dashboard (wp-admi)
  • Clicking the Settings link in the side navigation
  • Clicking the Permalinks link in the sub navigation
  • Choosing one of three options Day and name, Month and name, or Post name

Hope this helps!

Thank you so much for the feedback. I agree on the ads. I thought it seemed cluttered too and I am happy you feel the same way. I want my site to look nice and attract people. By the way, your blog looks great. It is very organized and full of great information.

Thank you Mommy Host for the permalink suggestion. I had no idea had that affected my site. I did what you said and changed it. Thanks again!
