View Full Version : Blog critique

02-16-2010, 09:29 PM
Greetings fellow Studio scrappers!
I'm focusing on getting my blog a little more functional and was hoping for some thoughts on the design. I still have lots of work to do (such as giving credit in my exmamples), but I made some decent progress today. Hopefully soon I can offer some templates for download.

Anyway, if you have a chance please take a look at Magical Memory Blog (http://magicalmemory.blogspot.com) and let me know what you think. Constructive criticism is always appreciated!

Thanks in advance for looking and giving feedback.

Had to check it out as I need motiviation to work on mine LOL!!! I totally love your banner-it's really cute but does look a little bare on either side. I would continue with the same style and bling it up a bit. Looks like you're off to a super start!

Thanks, Desiree for checking it out. Yup, I know it's bare, but it's there! :) I've not yet figured out what to do as far as as side bars and background goes. I don't want it too busy, but SOMETHING would be good! Thanks for your input, I really appreciate it!

Wow what a great start you've made to your blog Cindy, I think it looks great and to be honest I wouldn't be adding too much decoration, it's much easier for people to open your blog when it's not overdone :DD I know myself if a blog takes too long to upload I usually move on ... hmmmmmmmm I must overhaul my blog again too ;)

Thanks for looking, Jeanette! The speeds of site loading is something to consider, thank you for bring it up. I'm also concerend about any background busy-ness going on which might take the focus away from the designs. White is too bright, black is too dark so there needs to be a little something to jazz it up, but keep it simple at the same time.

Thanks again.

Great Start Cindy, I agree that keeping it simple keeps the focus on the pages etc that you are wanting to show off. Maybe a soft chipboard color for the background, something soft and not too busy which is what it sounds like you are looking for :)

Good luck with it all hun
