I’m not quite sure what I was expecting when I decided to review this blog, but when I clicked on the link, I found myself more on a “splash” page than the intro to the blog. And even after I found myself clicking on the “blog” link you get a choice of only a very small handful of entries. I’m hoping that the few entries that do exist are interesting.
I find the layout of the entires to be quite amusing. It’s different in that he uses pseudo html tags to label different sections of the entry. It’s cute as well asn helps to me keep things a little more organized. The author’s sense of humor is evident in a few of the entries. I adore the English accent I hear in my head as I read through is entries. The blog itself is very, what’s the word I’m looking for, vast. There are literally only a handful of entries that span over the course of 2 years or so. The author, MaFt, is a music fan and you can tell by how often he talks about music and the various different concerts he’s gone to. He makes Bingo sound like wonderful fun, and driving to seem dependent on the weather. For the most part this blog is funny, however, there aren’t enough entries to make the time spent worthwhile.
The design is functional, but a little on the boring side. There’s not much going on, but it doesn’t hurt my eyes to read it. It’s a bit of a pain in the butt to have to go back a page in order to read the next entry, but you deal with the little design idiosycrasies because the entries can be somewhat amusing.
For the most part this blog is cute and somewhat funny. It’s more personal than anything else, with the occasional mention of an idea, thought, theory or music group. It’s definately not updated nearly as much as it should to make a bit of a bigger impact on the reader. Most people who might be interested in this blog would come, read for a little while, and then might disappear into the realm of bloggers. Why? Because there aren’t enough updates to want to keep coming back. The author has a great sense of humor and wit, even if there’s a mention of stupid Americans a couple of time. It’s a shame that this blog could easily have scored higher with this reviewer if there were more to read.a new thing
