Visual Aesthetics – 6
Nothing extraordinary about the layout, though some entries come with several images. Unfortunately, one can just imagine the writer saying, “Oooops!” No photo, google to the rescue!? The pictures were not chosen well. For the most part, they’re plain and boring photos save for Rooty the dog’s post-Thanksgiving dinner pose.
User Friendliness – 8
Loads fast. No complicated “click here” links scattered all over the page. Simple, easy to understand layout.
Reading Enjoyment – 9
This guy was probably a comedian in his past life. In his entry about how death used to be the penalty for trying to commit suicide in England, his title was hilarious: “We’ll show you..”. Good banter in the comments section as well.
User Info – 8
When reacting to news clippings, links to the original article are always included. Where to buy a plug-in-your-car coffee maker and the number of states listed at the back of a five dollar bill all come in as relevant info. You might find yourself someday in one of those TV quiz shows and thank the High Heavens for these trivia.
Overall Experience – 7
The healthy mix of family ramblings, political musings, Rooty the dog anecdotes and movie reviews, makes this site worth a visit.
