    I started blogging about random crap - working online, my shitty job, my family dramas, etc.
    I recently started a series on there called Let Me Explain Myself.

    Check out my personal blog: http://senselessblogger.com/

    Any feedback appreciated!

    We're now secure! I should have looked deeper into this before but better late than never.

    Thanks. I've been neglecting content but I'm going to bust my ass to pump it out this week.

    I already monetize it. I don't want to be intrusive so I just have the one ad that's in the sidebar.

    What comes to my mind when visiting your blog:
    - at first sight I can´t really see what´s this blog about. I think you should add the main topics as teasers or put in in the header, so that it´s clearly visible what this blog is about.
    - I looked at some articles, I think most of them are too short. I would add longer articles so they bring more value to the user (and Google likes it too).

    Yes, the blog looks like it might be interesting to a lot of people. However, the text is so small, so broken up, and with so little contrast that it is IMPOSSIBLE to read.

    If you want people to stick around, you will need to bring the legibility of your pages up to WCAG standards.

    What browser are you using that it appears like that? I'm viewing it just fine and this is the first I've heard of that issue.

    I can understand that. I have a few "babies" and have discovered I am quite the procrastinator. This is one of those do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do kinda posts, but try to take my comments more as suggestions from a rambling old man with nothing better to do tonight. ;)

    I still think it's good advice to never, ever show your email address online. Unless you like collecting spam, that is.

    [​IMG]
    Heading tags (h1, h2, h3 especially) are good SEO and help guide search crawlers to your most important content. Your home page says the most important content is the center column title, "Recent Posts." If you want that to have some SEO power, as well as grab the attention of your visitor, then give it a bit more snazzy title.

    Your theme indicates your second most important content is all of your widget titles. Worse yet, it thinks the actual titles of all your great articles in the center column are worth no more than an h3. Getting the search engine to pay closer attention to your post titles than your widget titles is kinda important.

    I also noted that your posts don't harness the value of heading tags either - I mean except for the title of the post.

    [​IMG]
    Why not make your About page include all the content of the About AND Staff pages.

    [​IMG]
    I have always hated that Meta widget in WP, especially because it links to wordpress.org, which is irrelevant to 95% of what I post about. There are plugins that can take the place of the Meta widget.

    [​IMG]
    That's supposed to be an ad, but for some reason, Google Adsense decided not to put one there while I was browsing. The plugin I use for my Adsense ads is Advanced Ads and one of the settings eliminates that ugly block when an ad doesn't appear. You can also tell Adsense to place a dummy or non-paying ad there when there's no other ad available.

    That's just some of the stuff that I thought might help you or some other blogger. I actually wrote a much more detailed critique on my own blog: https://1footinthegrave.com/senseless-website-critique/ I hope you can use one or two of my ideas, or at the very least, enjoy my opinionated article.

    Milestone: This is the first time I have posted on DigitalPoint in nearly 10 years. I was supposed to be critiquing the pearly gates by now. :O

    For a name like "Senseless Blogger" I'd choose a complete different theme. Something more radical.
