Ever wonder what others think about your blog? I know I do and so does one of our curious reader: Danie B of What Will She Wear. Diana is an aspiring journalist who happens to also love fashion, photography, food, and life- and that is exactly what her blog is about.  So, go on and take a look at her blog to see what inspires her.

After reviewing her blog,
Here's what I like:
-Great photos. Very clear
-background-a little dark, but it's different so I like it.
-Signature at the end of each post
-Great start on the 'about me' section.
-Cute blog name

Here's what I think she can improve on:

-Move Pageviews counter down to the bottom
-List links of the items you are showcasing. This will make it easier for readers to find if they want to buy the same outfit/accessories.
-The banner is too simple.
-Add follow me buttons: twitter, instagram, etc. It's much easier to click and add than to have to type in the web address (ex. twitter) and then have to find you. 
-The 'About Me' section is off to a great start. However, you need to let your readers know what your blog is about.

What do you guys think? Diana is new to blogging and would like to know how she can improve her blog and gain more followers. Let her know by leaving a comment below. We would love to hear your thoughts. As always, constructive criticism is welcome. =)  


  1. My two cents on What Will She Wear:
    Here's what I like:
    - The background picture is great
    - Posts have many photos, that's nice
    - Well written posts, a must for a blogger

    What I don't like:
    - Semi transparent secondary background, makes it hard to read the text sometimes
    - Center alignment of texts, not a fan
    - Confusing social network links, maybe use icons or buttons
    - Photos of different widths, specially the landscape ones should be the same

    Best of luck for Danie B with her blog ^^

  2. I think Danie's blog is off to a strong start! The first few months are tough, you are trying to figure what to feature, experimenting with layouts, and topics to blog about. For the most part, she has done a good job with the layout, but I would suggest trying to increase the width...atleast on my laptop the sidebar is overlapping the actual blogpost. I agree the social network links is a bit hard to follow so I would suggest the use of icons/buttons.

  3. I love those blog critics i always get to know new bloggers and they get to hear what we think about them.

    hey i am hosting a new and super fan $100 Sephora and $100 Asos gift card giveaway where TWO WINNERS will get one gift card of their choose so i would love it if you participated or if you blogged about it.

  4. great post!
