The French Journal
“A site for Francophiles. Notes on France, its culture, history, geography, food, wine, travel, and more…and, of course, Paris!”
Visual Aesthetics – 7
Neat and contained. However, the column for the content is a bit too small making the text look a bit too packed. The underlined links also do not look very nice although it is good for usability. This blog looks pleasant enough but would definitely benefit from a little dressing up.
User Friendliness – 8
Positives: Fast loading time. Readable though a bit too packed text. Distinct links. Informative posts. Organized sidebar. Neat look. Negatives: Very irritating Snaps. No link to previous posts at the bottom of the page.
Reading Enjoyment – 7
The entries all contain very informative content although most of them sound too newsy and dry for my taste.
Useful Info – 10
Though the author isn’t French and doesn’t live anywhere near France the blog is as useful as any if you want to learn anything about France. A very good resource on France indeed.
Overall Experience – 10
You wouldn’t really visit this site for the fun and relaxing reads but to get useful information.
