Please view my page need feedback...

  1. Please, would appreciate any feedback or advice on how to promote my blog or make it more appealing. Am inexperienced and trying to reach as wide an audience as possible.

    The blog I need help with is

  2. I think you're off to a good start. I like that you already have your own background and banner, and that you are clearly aware of your target audience. This will prove very helpful in writing future blog posts, which is good!

    My advice is as follows:

    1. Delete the first blog post "Welcome world," as this is a default blog post that isn't relevant at all to your blog :D

    2. Make use of the "Insert More Tag." As you accumulate more posts on your blog, your readers may find that showing the entire blog post on your homepage will get cumbersome for someone who just wants to browse through your blog posts without having to read every single one in full. The "Insert More Tag" looks like two squares separated by a dotted line. It allows you to make a sort of preview for your blog post.

    I'm suggesting this because the first thing I notice about your blog is that as I scroll down I'm hit with a wall of text. I find this almost a little intimidating, and this may happen to someone new who is just trying to get a feel for your blog. It could just be because that post had a lot of information and perhaps too many line separations. Likewise, don't forget that instead of posting links you can link text directly using the chainlink icon.

    3. Use visuals in your blog posts. Even if it's just a random picture of a parent and child (you look up pictures on Flickr to use for free by going to "Explore" and clicking "Creative Commons") This will make your blog posts easier to read and create more 'interactive' atmosphere for your readers.

    4. Lastly, I find the white blog post on white background look a little daunting. But that's just my opinion. If you'd like examples of blog themes, check out other people's blog on this forum as well as themes made by the WordPress staff. They have wonderful themes to draw inspiration from.

    I hope some of my speculations help you out! Keep in mind that I am simply a fellow blogger; I have no blogging expertise, but I've seen enough blogs to feel my advice will at least inspire you. As for promoting, I say reach out to your friends and family first. From there, keep posting on WordPress forums :) Best of luck!

  3. I'm not a fan of the background. I found I had trouble focusing on your post.

    As vilipend said the page is to bright hard to read.

    Delete welcome world, delete the UNCATEGORIZED category and give categories a name, one name or maybe two.

    Add tags to posts up 9 or 10.

    Your last post is to long people won't stick around long enough to read it all.

    Otherwise a good start.
