Blog I follow

http://www.chicgalleria.com/

Chic Galleria is a blog I have chosen to follow. I really like it because it covers many topics. The pages include arts & entertainment, body & mind, food, giveaways, shop, style, and travel. This blog has a little bit of everything, which is why I like it. There is a lot of variety for viewers! The pages are placed in a navigation bar. They are listed in the right top hand corner which is great because it is then made easy to see what the blog offers. This would be included in the “above the fold” portion of the blog. Also in that portion is the title. The title is also big and clear. It is also bright, with highlights of red. A cool feature of the pages is that most of them are different colors. I enjoyed seeing that. It brings a little creative customization to the blog! Although this blog adds different colors to some of the pages, I think one thing this blog could improve on is it’s overall design. The background of the pages is plain. The content of each page takes up a lot of space, but I still think something could be done with the background to make it a little more exciting. I also think the font choice is a little plain. I think that could be changed also to make the blog a little more exciting or exotic, appearance wise. Another feature to note about this blog is that it is a collaborative blog. There are multiple authors that contribute to the posts showcased on this blog. When you click on the “about the author” on the homepage, it lists the editor along with the writers that write posts for this blog. Another cool feature of this blog is the “Latest Readers Comments” feed on the top, right below the title. I like this feature of the blog because you can see what people are saying about certain posts. You are introduced to popular posts right then and there! There is a sidebar on this blog as well. The sidebar contains the social media links for the blog, photos, ads, latest articles, a search bar, and a subscribe section. Also included in the sidebar is the archives section. This section has a drop down feature that lets you look up articles as far back as 2008. They are listed by month and year. I think it is very well organized! On the footer of the blog, all the categories are listed. There are a lot of them listed! When it comes to posts, the most recent ones are listed on the home page. New posts are constantly posted, this is a very active blog. Overall, I throughly enjoy this blog. There is a lot of variety, content wise. There is also consistency when it comes to recent and updated posts. The articles also always include photos and are very well written. This is a blog I will read on a daily basis!
