"I think your layout and background look good, it makes the site easy to read. I really like the boxes over on the right side, separating the different types of resources available. You have some great content in your archives and I think it would be…"

"I think your site looks really nice. I'm a fan of the clean 3 column template like you have. I also like that your ads all fit around your travel topic, there is nothing random shoehorned in. The Looking Back drop-down is cool too. The only…"

"I think the look of the site is great! Very clean. The only suggestion I'd have is to change the top-level menu items to something more intuitive. I'm not likely to go exploring in "strawberry field" , "strawberry…"

"I think it looks great too! I read somewhere that polls encourage people to interact more with your site. I just tried my first one with Poll Daddy, so I don't know how well it's work yet. :) Something else you could do is invite visitors…"

"Well, I changed to a Minima 3 column template, added a background & a custom header. But I am not sure that it looks good. Sure could use another opinion. Don't be afraid to be honest. I won't be offended. :) THANKS!"

Small readership, why won't it grow??

Hi all,I'd love to get your feedback on my blog. I started blogging in January and have posted consistently ever since. I participate in a few weekly carnivals related to my topic (frugal living, family finances) but am not sure if my readership isn't growing because I need to do more promotion or if my blog just isn't that great. :)I'd welcome any feedback, especially on content, style, how to promote better, should I have more/better ads, etc. One thing I think I need to do is get some help…See More

Hi there from The Girlz Korner in upstate New York where you'll find light, witty and rather entertaining articles on every topic imaginable from The Little Black Dress to Making Whoopie. So if you get a chance to kick back and exhale, if only for a brief moment ... come on over and see me some time.
