Ever wonder what others think about your blog? I know I do and so does one of our curious reader: Anastasia of Anastasiac.

After reviewing her blog,
Here's what I like:
-The look. It's very clean. 
-Love how she includes pictures in every post. The pictures are beautiful and goes very well with the post. 
-I also love the way she arranges the post and the pop of color from the different font colors. It draws your attention to the post.
-Good arrangement on the side bar- it lets you know where else you can find her. Ex. Her shop and twitter. Also, good selection of icons. 
-Love how she has the "What you might also like:" at the end of her posts. It suggests posts/articles that the readers might also find interesting.  

Here's what I think she can improve on: 
-The banner is a little too plain. 
-Add "About Me". Give the readers a little description of what your blog is about. It's the same as having a business. If your customers have no clue what you are offering then they most likely will not be buying. 
-There's too many labels. Shorten the label list. It can be overwhelming for some. 

Do you guys agree? We would love to hear your thoughts. Drop by Anastasia's page to see what you like, don't like, think she add or remove. Let her know by leaving a comment below. As always, constructive criticism is welcome. =)


  1. Oh i love your blog! I think it is a wonderful idea :)

    Nafisah xo

  2. I think these are great points you made! It is true, her header is somewhat on the more plain side, but over time she'll see more blogs and get inspiration to add to it!

  3. I quite like the overall look and feel. I agree the header could be a bit more busy and I would suggest moving follow buttons above the fold.

  4. I love the content of this blog. Great pictures, colorful and attractive.

    I agree about the header and banner. The banner is a bit too simple.

  5. I love this blog. Anastasia oozes style. An equally stylish banner would be great and a small about me section.

  6. Reading these critiques give me insights for my own blog. Oh, and if you feel like it, you can review mine.

  7. it has such a great layout like you said clean, but i also think the header could be more creative.

  8. overall it's a nice clean blog. i would love to see the header a little bigger. :)

    hope all's well, and have a fab day, my friend. :)


  9. thanks SO much everyone! i always thought id keep my banner plain as i have so much visual content but great to hear your perspective!!
    this was great!

  10. I would like to say that the blog is very visually appealing, the only think I would consider is double checking your "I"s. Most people at times mispell words or have type-o's and this is ok. On this particular blog there were alof of lower case "I"s, and that (to me) seems like it would turn some people off. Maybe come across as not professional. I hope that this does not offend, just positive criticism. Overall, a great blog that I will be coming back to often!!

  11. I think it is nice, because the blog has a bigger header hehe
    Clean blog will make the point of what you post and not looked messy is important thing :)


  12. love your blog...maybe we can follow each other ????

  13. great post!
