It’s Blusterin’ Time!

And remember: Blustering should be a two-way street; if you’ve asked to be blustered, you better be a blusterer.

If you’re new to this feature or need a refresher, click the label at the bottom of this post and see the first few posts. Otherwise, here are the basics:

What I’ll do is list a site; you’re asked to critique it. But here’s the catch: to induce the most honest reactions, don’t leave the comment using your normal alias/login – instead, go anonymous, and be as brutally honest (or complimentary) as you wish to be. Also, be specific, and naturally, don’t be rude. If I deem anything inappropriate, I’ll have no problem deleting the comment.

So, go to the site listed below, familiarize yourself with it for a few minutes, then come back and leave some constructive criticism and/or comments that you have.

    A larger font would be nice. Also, you might want to shrink the main column of text – make better use of all that negative space. It’s well written, though, and quite informative.

    I don’t know much about LiveJournal, so I don’t know if this is possible but I’d have the pictures centered instead of aligned to the left and also experiment with different fonts so it stands out from various other LiveJournal sites.

    Great site. Just consider changing the colors, the red one is too bright and it doesn’t look very good with the purple background. Also consider changing the header picture because it’s too blurry and big. But congrats anyway.

    In response to these comments, I have somewhat altered the color scheme (principally flipping the red and purple), while changing the header picture, something I’ll try to do on a regular basis.
