    Just looking for people's thought on this current blog, and ideas on how i may improve it further
    Its a NFP, 0 Ad's Blog, its just a hobby, like most other bloggers out there these days, though i have jumped into an overly popular field of reciepes, and reviews.

    I have started to slowly learn some of the plugins, though are there any extras i should consider ?

    To summarise, could i get people's opinion on the layout, page response time, navigation etc,

    (Sorry about the tags, slowly learning the SEO framework as we speak)

    Look forward to any idea on how i can make my blog a better place =D

  4. I like your blog's layout. I find it clean and easy to navigate. The way you've set up your posts is great too. I find that with some food blogs, bloggers tend to leave too much of the recipe/instructions as a preview and it makes it tedious for me to browse through when I'm only interested in reading titles and short excerpts (and looking at yummy pictures!)

    My only advice would be to have some way for readers to navigate your recipes/reviews via food type. For example, a categories widget for different recipe categories such as desserts, vegetarian, etc.

    Overall well done :)

    Thanks Turnthrice, really appreciate you taking the time,

    I will look into your suggestion now, of catagorising recipes (Will be easier to work with once i get a few more on there)

    Layout looks clean. Not my taste literally and graphically as I'm vegetarian and prefer to scroll down and sink into blogs rather than reclicking for each post. That's about me not your blog though. It was fast page loading and the piccies looked good too.

    I think the best food blogs are the ones that are pretty short and sweet without pretentious woffle. Sometimes a tiny bit of personal/anecdotal stuff works, sometimes it doesn't. I guess you will find your own level, always best to write how you feel comfortable.

    Thanks Roughseasinthemed

    I decided on the link style to try and keep it simple, less clutter, i suppose all to their own on preference of layouts,

    Ill do some playing around to try and create a less, clicky setup =D
