Ogirlsays blog suggestions taken on board

Fairy Blog Mother

My previous post provided recommendations for improving a blog through one of my reviews. I only published this a couple of days ago and already the owner of the blog has taken my suggestions on board. The result is so much better, and is so gratifying when you can see the changes – now we have to see if they make a difference!

What’s been done? A change of theme – I wasn’t expecting this, but I’m glad she did. The white background is so much clearer to read the text, and the space is wider to accommodate her pictures better. Her headlines (could be slightly bigger) are much more noticeable, which is what headlines should be.

She has brought her subscription button closer to the top, added on a recent posts widget, highlighted her Twitter app more through better positioning, shows her comments to encourage more, recommended a series of other websites for outward links, and tidied her categories into a pull down menu.

And she has changed her blog’s title to say ‘Commentary on life and reading’ – now they know what the blog is about, I’m sure people will be more inclined to stop and have a look, not to mention the search engine spiders.

A big improvement, as I’m sure you will agree – you can see the result below:
