"Critique My Blog" thread?

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Anyone interested in doing a "Critique My Blog" thread. I was inspired by BlogCoach's "Critique This Blog" feature.

My thought is that if you're interested, sign up here.And then maybe we can take turns (weekly-ish, sooner if the thread dies out) threads for constructive criticism? I don't know if this would work or not, and would love your thoughts.

Can we pm links like we do for the Suite and AC threads?

Could you explain that to me a little more?
post #10 of 23
Sure. Writers for AC get paid per page view and writers for Suite101 get paid for ad clicks on the articles. Because of that we can't post the links to our articles on MDC. What we did was ask the other writers to send us a private message with the links. So, if someone new joins the Suite thread, anyone that is interested in reading the new writers work will just ask her to pm the link.

This came about with the original AC thread. Our thread got locked because we were posting links.

Here is the link to the most recent AC thread where there is a blurb written in the first post. This blurb has been transferred to each new thread for almost two years now.

I think this is a great idea! I'd really like some feedback on mine--especially from someone with fresh eyes who hasn't seen it before. And ... of course ... i have ads on mine so ...

I'd love feedback too - especially because I just attempted my first podcast and I'd like an outside perspective on it's length, usefulness and quality...

I'd love to join! I'm thinking about some overhauls so I'd love some fb before to see if my ideas mesh with unbiased critiques.

Should we start? Snowbunny - Do you want to be first? If anyone wants to critique it, they can ask you to pm the link.

I volunter to go 2nd -lol. I'm going to be putting ads on it soon, so would like some opinions before I have to take my link down.

Or, do we even have to take "turns" - can we just jump in and read, review and offer suggestions at will?

Please don't start. I am still waiting for admin input, and if we do this, it will probably need to be a moderator-run thing to stay within the UA.

I'd like to throw my blog into the ring... it's just for fun and not very developed... but none the less I'd like to improve it
