My blog needs some critique

by jan roos 8 replies
I just started to create my blog and i would really appreciate some feedback from you guys.

Does my blog make sense, Is my writing too promotional etc. Any and all critique will only make me better at blogging since i believe that a good blog can pay me for years to come so i want to do it right from the start.

    Oh guy, you need more posts. Also get another theme for your blog. Monetize with Adsense or affiliate links.

    Yeah I am posting every day on it. I've started this blog 3 weeks ago.Adsense is a good idea to add on it. I'm also gonna add a optin form on there. As far as changing the theme goes i think i'll need some more opinions on that one

      Change the theme. My first impression is that you're trying to sell me something. And, I had no idea there was more than one post, until I read your response to napoleonfirst.

      I'd guess too that you're trying to steer away any female readers. The brown stripes and the color scheme are so very masculine, I think you could be putting off female readers. If you insist on stripes, try something less busy.

      Dan's content is irregularly read by handfuls of people. Join the elite few by reading his blog: dcrBlogs.com, following him on Twitter: dcrTweets.com or reading his fiction: dcrWrites.com but NOT by Clicking Here!

      Dan also writes content for hire, but you can't afford him anyway.

        Looks good but I found the background a bit distracting when I was reading. Maybe just a plain colour would be better.

    make regular posts (important for the search engines).

    Don't just sell-give away your free tips-if they see value, they will trust your authority.

    Add video to give it more life.

    Create links and submit to forums to get powerful exposure.

    Get the right software that will automate the process for you with a good marketing plan and you will make sales.

    Best of luck!

      Hey Jan,

      My first impression is that the theme is very dull and that the
      stripes in the header are visually disturbing....

      It's also blatantly obvious that you are "selling" rather than
      providing informative content....

      Hope that makes sense...

      Regards

      Greg

        Ok I realize that I am blatantly selling on my blog and that needs to change, The theme I am having trouble with figuring out. I changed it to the black background. What do ya all think of that one. Video is a good idea to add on there to bring some more life into the blog.
        Thanks for all the honest reviews.

        It's better to get some constructive critique right from the start and build the blog right from the beginning otherwise lots of hours will be wasted.
