What criteria are you using when rating another person's blog? We all have different ideas and opinions. I might like a particular blog and something on that blog might turn you totally off. I think to keep things safe, legitimate, and on the same scale there should be a brief rating/scoring sheet.
Does the title catch you eye?
Is the main page too cluttered?
After reading several posts, do you like their way of writing?
Do you like to see a lot of reviews on a mom blog?
Are the colors too distracting?
What criteria do you use?
I'll be happy to type of a rating sheet if everyone helps submit ideas and criteria.
