Yes, it's Fall and time for new beginnings. I needed advice about how to improve my blog and found a guru--laurabwriter.blogspot.com Laura is a marketing consultant and author. She offers advice on layout and general comments about ones blog by posting your blog on her blog and asking for others to add to the critique of your blog. I emailed her a few weeks ago and she was kind enough to add me to her list.
Since I am not writing a book, I just needed help in improving my blog itself. And I learned so much from her and those of you who took time to comment.
This will take time. Over the next few weeks you make see tweeks here and there.
First there is the layout. I am such a non-geek when it comes to the techy stuff, but will learn how to delve into the "advanced" google layout. Everyone liked my header photo, but said it was too large, there was other advice as well.
1. Improve layout.
2. Re-do profile to say more
3. Too many topics - - theme, if there is one, is not clear
4. Be careful about intellectual property
5. This is my idea: visit other blogs to study layout, this would help.
I would welcome more comments, about your own blogs as well. Thank you especially to Laura.
Here in Colorado Fall is in the air, chilly mornings and evenings, trees are changing color, my favorite time of the year. A perfect time to re-think my blog and the thought of starting over: like a new semester in school, new books, new teachers, new crayons (in elementary school), improved blog.
