Looking for Reviews of Joeychgo.com

    www.joeychgo.com


    I completely remodeled and revamped my blog, www.joeychgo.com, about a month ago. I re-focused my posting to be focused on internet topics as well.

    I still have a few parts of the theme I havent decided what to do with yet, but I have been working on it. Among other things I have added a Book Store and a Photo Gallery.

    I also added the Top Commentators plugin, so the top 5 commentators get a free link for commenting. (I do ban spammy links) So you should feel free to comment!

    So, I would like to see what people think of the blog now that I am a month into it. I would also like to see some subscribers join up, so if you like what you see, please, subscribe!

    I was reading it the other day. Great job, Joey! :) But since you're a forum owner - what about offering tips to other forum owners on how to get more people to post, register, etc?

    Great blog.

    dude if you are serious about blogging - and it does seem you are - you need to post way more often, at least once a day, preferrably twice.

    and you said you focused on internet stuff, so why the thanksgiving post? it doesn't mesh. stay on topic, ALWAYS. blogging is not about you, it's about your readers, give em what they want, not what you want to say.

    Its a really good blog. I observed the adsense ads are ot related at all. If you are not earning from Adsense, might as well drop them and go for something interesting.

    The ads are usually relevant, but your right, on occasion they are not.

    I dont know about posting my income reports. But I will highlight ad programs that work and talk about how to make them work better. --- WHat do you mean about SEO updates?

    Hello JoeyChgo

    I had a look at your website today. Very impressive site design.

    My Thoughts

    Domain Name
    Very easy and catchy. Good on ya... in getting a domain name that goes with your own name.

    Logo
    I love the logo. I would only recommend enlarging the 'www.joeychgo.com' slightly. Right now... I can barely read it.

    Template
    I had a look at your template with 3 different browsers and they all worked well. Good to see that you put so much work into making it work with cross platforms.

    Photos Page
    I was a bit confused when I went to your photos page. The template widen to full page and the top right navigation buttons changed. Would it be possible to keep the template and navigation consistent throughout the site?

    [​IMG]

    Book Store
    I also found this page a little off from the others. I think it was the 'Popular Articles', 'Recent Comments' and 'Top Moneymakers'... that was missing... I would recommend keep some of the stuff... for visitors ease of navigation and familiarity.

    [​IMG]

    Contact Form
    It works! :)

    Content
    The content of your site is excellent. Good to read a site that has excellent content.

    W3C Validation
    I'm not to sure if it is a concern for you. But I did do a test with W3C validation and it came up with 32 errors.

    Conclusion
    Very impressive site... just a few things to touch up.

    This review was done with 3 browsers (FireFox 2.0.0.9, Internet Explorer 6.02 & Opera 9.24) on Windows XP SP2.

    I do hope this helps you.
    Respectfully,
    Lhlalyam

    Very clean and very appealing, I found myself reading much more than I planned… plus the t-shirt photos didn’t hurt

    Thank you - I hope you all become subscribers.

    Do you think I should completely avoid anything offtopic, or should I just focus on the internet topic and occasionally throw in something more personal or fun?

    I'd try to focus more on the internet topic and occasionally throw something more personal and fun - until your blog picks up.
