I'm going to tell you all about something that I think is extremely important if you want your blog to be a little more... user friendly.
Folks, they're a good idea. I participated in one that was held over at Truly Lovely, and it was so great to get unbiasedfeedback about my blog design and layout. I had two lovely ladies, Chrissyand Morgan go through my blog and critique it based on the questionnaire at this site.
That's actually one of the reasons I'm changing up the size of my sponsor buttons this next month. I was told that, at first sight, it looked like a little too much, even though it was very well organized. Well, I'm hoping that with those nifty rectangular buttons, it will look a little more uniform and not quite as busy.
Also, I don't know if you're the type to go look at the archives or search for something, but if you are, today is your happyday! I improved my archive so that it's easier to see past posts, and moved my search bar from an obscure location near the bottom of the sidebar to the top left hand side. It is now easier than ever to blog stalk me, folks!
Moral of the story is this: Having somebody else review your blog is such a good idea. You may know what your blog looks like on your widescreen monitor, but did you know that I can't see half of your layout? You didn't? Or maybe your "sidebar" is down at the bottom of your page, and you had no idea, because it all works for you. My point is, don't be afraid to ask someone how your blog looks - it will probably do you more good than harm!
