I knew going in that Hydroponics – Soil-less Gardening was probably not going to be an entertaining site. I have heard of hydroponics and I have read about it before. Just didn’t think it was a topic worthy of a blog.
The site loads with a modified blogger template. The template is shades of greens which I find fitting considering this is about plants. Other than the customizing of the template, there isn’t much else to say about the design of this standard two-column layout site.
The blog is, as I predicted, about growing plants in a soil-less environment. The site covers everything that you can think of and more. This includes proper mesh, ph levels, and more. I was amazed at how much work went into growing things this way.
My biggest gripe is that this site seems like it was only set up to earn money. It doesn’t read like the author enjoys his work, rather the posts are detailed and straight to the point. The site is littered with advertising which is kind of distracting. The fact that it is hosted on blogspot doesn’t help either. The site really needs a regular domain and could use a message board.
Overall this site is only good if you have an interest in hydroponics. I don’t think the author is trying to make the site a place for other people to share their ideas which I think the site could greatly benefit from. The site does what it does well, but because of the lost potential I have to give it a 2.5NULL
