Lift Magazine is all about the adventurer. It is a “web magazine for the adventurer in all of us (not necessarily the gym goer) — urban men and women who work hard and play harder. LIFT is dedicated to covering sports, people, places, activities, gear, art, and politics of the world.”
Visual Aesthetics – 9
Red and black are the predominant colors and they give off a strong aura – something that suits the adventurous theme of the blog. Blog entries are decorated with relevant pictures, making for a better experience. The huge red ads on the top right of the home page kind of takes a bit away from the aesthetics, though.
User Friendliness – 8
The pages load up easily enough and you can find your way around the blog – if you scroll down to the bottom of the page. That is one thing that I think could be improved to make it easier for the reader – links to archives and categories could be placed in a more convenient location.
Reading Enjoyment – 10
