It all depends on what you're going for. If it's simply to share your thoughts with the world, just post and write cohesive thoughts. If you're aiming to make money, than SEO, link, build affiliates, and write good content.

  • Maybe place a link next to About me to go back to the blog.
  • Its simple, but not always bad.
  • Sorry, but its doesnt capture my attention to read on

Also, please dont take this the wrong way. This is just my opinion and you may disregard it.

Thanks.

If readers want to go back to the blog after reading the about me page, they can click on the huge header image. :P

Any other pointers you could give FireBolt?

I mean, I'm not really going for the aesthetic side of the blog but more of the content side. I want my site to be extremely useful for students. So if a teacher asks a student build a trigonometric calculator, they search for trigonometry on my site and BAM! a complete tutorial on how to build one.

I don't think a review should be based on a persons "likes and dislikes." What I mean by that is... I like bright colors.... so therefore... your site may seem a tad dark FOR ME. That isn't something that I should say is wrong with your site.... because it's not wrong... its just a preference thing.

It is all about your target audience as well. If someone is interested in your website... they will come back.

THINGS THAT ARE GOOD
1. You didn't bunch up a lot of words in a huge paragraph. That is good. When you do that... people tend to get all scared and leave. lol Breaking your text up is a good thing.

2. The layout is clean and organized (lol not as much as I like but like I said, that's me).

SUGGESTIONS
1. Provide more images in your tutorials. Some people are more visual in learning and it also might draw them in more.

2. You may not think you need a "Home" link but I am telling you... you need it. There are people out there that wont know to click the title (and that it will take them to the home page). Trust me, put it in there. It makes it easier and looks better too.

3. Don't get discouraged if you don't get visitors or comments at first. It takes time to attract people. Just advertise your blog. Do research (to find where you can advertise you blog).

4. Make sense (not saying you don't) and be clear.

5. One last thing, put more information about you in the "about me" page. Just pictures and a few words wont help visitors know who you are. Maybe list your experience and your purpose for the blog. Also, organize the "about me" page. Make it look neat and easy to look at.

----------------------------------------------------------------

I know there are people out there who will love your site. Just keep building and posting tutorials.

Toodles!

Thanks for the suggestions, I'll look into placing a home link. I have no clue how to use Wordpress. I have some learning to do.

Hence why I always say the same thing at the end of "my" review.

I've added a decimal/binary/hex converter tutorial. Any tips on how to advertise my blog so people will learn about it?
