Uh oh, Is my title not transparent? I'm not seeing it show on my side?
Well, I don't think anyone would take you any less seriously if you used that font, so if you really like it, stick with it. And it might be that it's just fuzzy on my screen...


Thanks for that Wordpress link! Sounds like a wonderful idea on their part.

I would love some feedback on my blog / online magazine - http://www.norwegianfashion.no.

What do you like / what do you hate?
And most important - what do you miss?

The site runs on Wordpress and is customized by me.

And of course... the site is still a work in progress

Blogs not been up for long, I'm not really sure how to promote it?

Also any tips on how it looks, content etc and what people think I should do more/less of would be greatly appreciated

So I decided to change it, let me know what you think!

I was wondering if anyone knew how to get the like button from facebook onto blogger. Do I have to make a fan page first?
Thanks!

^Yes, I'm pretty sure there must be something linked to facebook in the form of a page of sorts.

I've tidied up my place a little, do you think there's too much white space? I may have to make the banner a little wider as it looks quite uncomfortable. HERE

Thanks for answering my question. Now I'll answer yours

I love your banner, I think it looks great! I would love to do something like that, might you tell me how you did that?!

I think you might be right about having a little too much white space, for instance in the post of January 10th there is too much space between the paragraph and the title of the post. I also think the blue color is a little off-putting with the red, grey, and black colors but that's just me. I would also make the pictures just a little bigger to fill up some white space and put the credits directly under it without leaving a big gap.

Overall, I think you have a great concept! Good luck on your blog

^Thanks! Does anyone know how to change the posts titles? My current template does not allow that change, but perhaps there's a CSS code for it?

Technology newbie here, so if anyone knows the correct code for it, I'll be forever indebted!

Oh, and as for the facebook question from before, there's a blogspot widget that allows sharing posts on facebook.

hey guys so here's my blog http://twinfashion.blogspot.com/

i started it 3 months ago with my sister and even though it goes surprisingly good in terms of visitors (almost 73,000 already) i'd ask to give me some ideas of how to encourage/woo readers to leave more comments

i'd love some general feedback on it and maybe some ways of improvement? thank you!

I think the number of comments you get depends on the nature of your blog. I get the impression that blogs that get a high number of comments are the ones that engage with their readers, ask them questions in the posts, share something personal, etc. In general, blogs that just repost pictures do not get that many comments, especially if there is almost no text to accompany them.

Funny, I try to reduce the words... But I'm thinking it might get a bit stiff sometimes because of it. Does anybody feel the same?

FrenchCactus hit the nail on the head when she said that some blogs, either through format or subject matter, just do not encourage visitor engagement. I stumble on blogs at times that commenting on the posts seems redundant because there is nothing for me to respond to. There is no angle or blogger p.o.v...
