Blog Review/Critique #9


Let’s look at sew gracious today.  Right off the bat you will notice that the layout is way different.  It is a 2 column blog, but the columns have been stretched.  It looks great!  This is done by editing the html code of your blog…( intense stuff there ).  It looks like we have another contest on our hands…. 100th-post-celebration .  You can see the amount of traffic is generated again by a contest.   Check out my contest to win a free necklace from my shop… click here .  Here is a cool thing you can add that sew gracious has…a mailing list form.  Use this to have people sign up to get on a e-mailing list.  here is a great place to find it for FREE  bravenet.com . 

Critique:  First:  I would change the color of your links..the light green blends in with the white. Pick a color that still fits the overall theme of your blog.  Second:  Labels again….. Labels on blogger are used as keywords. using labels will allow you to get rid of the blog archive, which is not a great tool for readers to use.  Third:  ok traffic time… you have joined a blog ring..but lets get on blogcatalog .  Lastly…make a little income with projectwonderful .  You can pick the adds you want to be on your site.  At first the cash flow is small, but over time it can grow!

  1. Thanks so much for the review and the compliments on what I’ve done so far! I’ll definitely check out the links you share and work on those colors! I still have a lot to learn about blogger so I appreciate your tips! 🙂


  2. Great write-up on Sew Gracious. There are so many shops on Etsy its easy to get lost in the melee. I have added a new favorite.

    I also feature Etsy sellers on my blog: http://tabihats.blogspot.com

  3. I like this blog! Talk about girlie colors-it made me want to keep reading. I love the pocketbook in the green and pink that she has highlighted and her etsymini really sticks out in a great way! Good job!

  4. I love reading your blog, I have already made changes to mine, from your suggestions to other blog.

    sewgracious has the prettiest items, I also like the contest for her 10th post great idea.

    I would love to have my bog featured


  5. Oh, I would LOVE a critique! I am trying tof igure out the whole html code to stretch my columns as well, but I just can’t quite figure it out.

  6. Your critique and suggestions are always interesting. They are also a great introduction to other bloggers. Thanks (and beautiful blog, Pam).

  7. More great ideas….think I’m going to look at my code a little closer.

  8. Contests are a great way to boost traffic. I’ve already had one and it worked pretty well. My problem lies in increasing regular consistent traffic. I’m not sure what else I could be doing.

  9. Tim, I am so glad to have made your acquaintance through the Handbook to Handmade…I am now in awe of your marketing skills and I am learning so much from your blogs. Now I just need to implement some of what I am learning. You are doing a kick*ss job!!!
