Itís always an enjoyable experience when a weblog can be read from its beginning to its current state without any desire to stop. The Danz Family blog, however, is one that falls into that category.
As the site finishes loading, which is does quite quickly, readers are met with an image of the American flag. A precursory glance around the site brings up what has become a standard Blog Moxie weblog design. The sidebar gives links a navigation area where readers can peruse the rest of the Danz family website. My personal favorite portion of the sidebar is definitely the random adorable photos that rotate in and out of little Drew, who is a focal point throughout the entire weblog.
The navigation part of the site leads readers into several different aspects of what Don, the author of DanzFamily.com, enjoys and finds interesting. Different portions of the site are filled with video clips and pictures garnered from the internet, clips from speeches Donís found worthwhile of sharing, and huge collection of links from all over the Internet. Itís a nice collection of add-ons to make this site more than ďjust a blogĒ.
Don covers a huge array or topics with the blog portion of DanzFamily.com. Heíll throw out updates on the status of the domain Ė new updates or new stats heís found interesting. Pictures Ė mainly candid shots of Donís family or of the beautiful flowers in his garden - are a regular feature in the day to day posts of this weblog, and by doing that, it gives readers something light to look at and breaks up the constant text that can sometimes overwhelm a new reader to a site.
Like so many other weblogs this time of year, politics has been a heavy topic of blogging for Don as of late. Heís also very well informed enough to touch on several current events or issues that have been brought up in the media, not only giving readers his own opinion, but relaying specific topics they may be learning about for the first time by visiting his weblog.
Thereís not a lot I would change about the Danz Family blog. New visitors just finding this weblog will be able to jump right in without feeling lost. Frequent visitors regularly leave comments on Donís posts and seem to have found a home with this weblog.
"Wow" is my first impression on opening up this page. It is graphically intense, and still loads like lightning, even though I am half a world away. A gorgeous picture of the Stars and Stripes greets me, along with well chosen font & background design which echo's the main picture, but in grayscale. Nice touch!
Are the posts as good as the design? I start to read, and the story of a happy American family starts to emerge. I want to read more, find out about these seemingly design and web savvy people! Somebody in this family has taken an html class...
A really useful group of links tears me away from earlier posts, offering untold riches with titles like, 'video, sound, pictures and interesting'. I am going a bit click crazy, following links in quick succession, and find myself on a site advertising light sabres. Ok, I'm definitely coming back here, this family has just become really really cool.
Back to the site, and I'm checking out more cool stuff, time to bookmark this site with my browser, because these guys have made a fan out of me.
Back to the blogging, and I find an interesting mix of socio political analysis, right inbetween pictures of a family birthday, which in my mind is great, it means that these guys are blogging about what affects them in life and a) they are not living in a fantasy world, and b) they're real people too. I am starting to like this family, a lot! Hey I just found some digital artwork, is there anything this family doesn't do?
Before you start to fret, I found some spelling mistakes and typos, so don't worry this family isn't all perfect. But they are definitely interesting enough and blog daily with a skipped day now and then(It's ok, I forgive them, even perfect families need a break from blogging). Now go and see for yourself!
