It is just this simple...


  1. I just had a critique of my blog, but by someone else. I think that one thing you could consider changing are the colours you use. They are hard on the eyes.... mine anyway. I had to do this with my blog. I have been told that readers prefer lighter colours in the background and darker text colour. It is something to consider.
    I am a heavy person, and I tip my hat to you for your success at losing weight. I know how hard it can be. I have lost weight and then gained more back. More than once, too. Probably more than twice...
    I like your new attitude. I sort of feel the same way about my life. I am a new blogger, too, and learning the ropes as well. I also have health issues.
    You seem to have good content (I can't read it all since blue and light are hurting my eyes) and would like to be made aware of when/if you decide to change your theme/colour since I would like to read more! Also, get rid of the Captcha. Comments will grow in amount if you do. May I suggest you read some others' blogs (anyones) and comment your way around this blogosphere so you can understand where I am coming from? Taking time to fill out captcha boxes are harder than clicking a box. Perhaps you should move to WordPress. They have awesome support and themes that are easy to use. That is where I am, and many MANY others! Something to consider, anyways. Good luck! Hint: try to comment on my blog if you want...You have too many commenting steps here...

  2. Hi Carol,
    I took a look at your blog and have a few suggestions. The most important suggestion is to put a "follow this blog" at the top of your page. I see you have your list of followers at the bottom. Most people won't scroll down to the bottom and you will miss getting some extra readers. You should also consider a more consistent amount of posts. Try to write at least once a week, although even that is very little. When you have a month with only one or two posts, people will get tired of checking back to see what is new and stop following you. I do love how personal your "about me" is. It would be great to be able to comment about it here without going to Google though. I hope this information helps. All the best. :)

    1. Hi Wendy,
      Thank you for your time and your critique. As you well may notice - I changed the layout to put the followers up top! Also I will definately added more consistent posts. Thank you for the compliments on my "bio". Thank you again - and my best to you. I love your blog and appreciate your wisdom. Take care,
