I'm trying this again.

The Green Mamas - An eco-friendly two-mama'd coast-to-coast adventure

Blog Critique Questions

1. What do you think of the layout? The number of columns? The colors?
2. Does my profile info read well? Does it help readers 'know' me?
3. Is the writing interesting to read?
4. Should the writing be strictly educational, or include personal posts to add some personality?
5. Is the content worth coming back for?
6. How can I bring more traffic?
7. How can I generate more comments?
8. Is there something that you feel would take my blog to the next level?

my SIL and I are doing this blog together...and it was going really well until I experienced Andrew's death this July...

And now my SIL just had her baby!

So...long story short...we're just getting back into the swing of things...I've lost a lot of the inspiration that was keeping up our momentum...I'm hoping to find it again...

hope you like it! Please be constructive in your critiques so we can make it better

I really like your blog - I favorited it a few months ago ) I like the fact that the two of you write it (and congrats to your SIL)!

I wish I could write more, but DD2 is calling to me because she is ready to go to bed. I'll try to respond again Sunday or early next week.

I like that it's practical in its approach. I found quite a few of the posts helpful...mmm, especially the one with the pumpkin pancake recipe your sil posted a couple of days ago.

I like the header image but I think it's look better if it were wider and extended to the edges of the green border. (It's a personal preference of mine, others might disagree.) I like the three column template, I think that number of columns works well for informational blogs. But I think the white background is too plain.

I love reading co-authored blogs. I think you two make it work really well too.

I don't have any constructive criticism ...just keep the helpful tips coming
