You know, it doesn’t take very much to create a web log. As a matter of fact, anyone can do it. What really takes a lot of talent, is offering someone something never before seen. Unfortunatly, when it comes to blogging, there’s nothing reall ‘new’ about it. So how do you grab ones attention? Its all about writing style. The way you word things. The structure of your sentence, and last but not least the page layout.
I don’t know why people keep telling me that its not about the layout, its about the content. Whats the first thing you see on a site? You see how its laid out. You see the colors, you see the graphics (if any) and you see the general color scheme. What was the first thing that rushed through my mind when I saw this site? It seems as if almost all blog sites out there, start out with a giant pointless graphic at the top that makes me think ‘Is it worth waiting the download?’ Sometimes, it’s not. Sometimes it is. This time, I don’t know what to think.
This sites got great potential. The writing style is excellent. The punctuation, the grammar is near flawless, the posts actually have a point and are written in a very interesting manner. Unfortunatly, the down side to it is the graphic at the top. Its HUGE! It took me a little while to figure out it was a menu. I crawled my way around the site using the links on the bottom of the page.
The graphic makes for quite some wait time on your part if you’re on dialup. Its very well made, I must admit and if I had the ability to make one of those, I’d show off my talent too. But thats just insane!Crispyhead
