Hi guys! I just recently changed my blog design/template, and I wanted some opinions from some of the other bloggers out there. Also, do you think that I should add the publisher, date published, and page count to the top of my reviews?
Thank you! Ok, cool. I just wasn't sure, because I know a lot of people go that way. :)
Thank you! :)
I like how colourful and fun it looks, and the template is very easy to navigate. I don't think that information is very necessary to include, but I do like knowing the page count.
Would you mind if I offered a few suggestions about the design? :)
Thanks. I wanted it to look 'teeny', so that the design would appeal to my fellow readers of YA. Gotcha: Page count. Not at all! Suggest away. ;)
I can definitely see it being appealing to YA readers. :)
I would suggest toning down the colour of the background, since it's a little bit overwhelming, enlarging the header so that there are no white spaces on either side, and getting rid of the scrolling buttons on the sidebar (an alternative could be placing one or two small buttons and having a link that leads to a separate page with the rest of them).
I've actually been thinking about the header, lol. The buttons thing is just a bit too my style to change, though. Thanks! :)
Great redesign bright and vibrant and would certainly appeal to your target audience.
I treat my site like a mini bookstore so based on that...I'm rarely concerned with the publisher, date published etc. so would my readers? I tend to post a synopsis, my opinion and an image of the cover. I love the the rating system that you have - I've been debating whether to use one...jury's still out.
Thank you! I do too, lol. I want people to want to buy books, so I do want to overwhelm them with: it had 855 pages, and your just like, WHAT? I want people to figure it out for themselves. I love my rating system! It's so easy. All I did was put five of those html spades in my little box...I forget what it's called....but they come up every time. :)
You too! :)
