hey guys ive just started a blog 2 months ago, Jerr Life. its a blog about my personal obsessions. its pretty straight forward but im worried its too wide of an angle and doesnt target a particular demographic.

anyway here are more of my questions and worries:

how do i increase traffic?
do you like the layout?
what gadgets should i add?
how do i promote it more(i comment on social sites such as this)?
do you think my niche is too wide

I think you could change your header to make it more personal & original so the reader can feel the "personality" of your blog right away (for example: finding a picture you like or a nice font).
Otherwise I like the layout: it's very clear and I enjoy the large pictures. I also like the fact that you state your opinions all while giving something valuable to readers.

Being general may be a saving grace for a blog in its infancy. Make sure your titles include highly searchable terms. This way, you will increase your number of random stumblers, and maybe those people will return to the blog some time later! I noticed a significant rise in hits in my blog after simply putting "interview" in all the interview posts (you can also see which googling terms people used to get to your blog, on the stats bar of the blogger dashboard).

Hi everyone I would just like to ask for some critique from fellow fashion bloggers and readers. Please take a look at my blog and let me know where I could improve and what people like to read. I will be posting another post sometime today or tomorrow about a great talk we have just attended at uni regarding Autumn 2011/12 by Geraldine Clark.

The link to my blog is www.theprintroomdoor.blogspot.com

Thanks in advance everyone!

Completely new to the blogging world so some feedback is much appreciated!

Is it easy to read? Do you think the concept is going to be useful for people?

Thanks in advance :-)

I don't like the fact that you have to click several times and open a new window to actually get to read your blog.

hey guys,
ok soo, i've had this blog for a few years now. and i'm relatively happy with the amount of visitors i usually tend to get, only i've noticed that the numbers seem to have dipped lately..
think you guys could check it out and let me know what's the deal?
modelcouture

for example, do i post too frequently? too seldom? are the posts too boring? i feel as though i've tried everything at this point, so another opinion would be wonderful

I would personally like it if the pictures were bigger on the homepage, if they were you are more likely to click and read further.

The pictures are tiny and you're not providing any information I can't get elsewhere.

Thanks for the feedback!..taken on board - will reduce from 2 clicks to 1. Unfortunately at the moment i cant embed my blog onto my website. And I also want to add more to my website than just a blog, which is why it opens a new window
