Home Is Where The Cars Parked
Home Is Where The Cars Parked is the personal blog of a woman currently experiencing financial difficulty – something the rest of the world can relate to especially in these days of financial turmoil. Though living in a car and disabled she faces each day with an attitude that we can all admire.
Visual Aesthetics – 9
The simple white template was made interesting with the use of a beautiful header and really nice pictures. The only problem is the right sidebar doesn’t render correctly (it’s shows up at the very bottom of the blog) in Internet Explorer messing up the otherwise pleasant look of the blog.
User Friendliness – 10
Easy to navigate with plenty of options for different search behavior (categories, tags, tag cloud, etc.). Social bookmarking is also made easy and clutter free thanks to the “I love social bookmarking” button at the end of each post.
Reading Enjoyment – 9
Just from reading the introductory email Deb sent I could already tell that her blog would make for a good read. I wasn’t disappointed. A personal blog chronicling daily activities but done in a way that allows even a stranger in.
Useful Info – 9
Nothing useful in terms of hard facts but still useful because the contents are mostly of every day issues (from unemployment and immigration to blog woes) that ordinary folks can relate to.
Overall Experience – 9
Relevant, honest, critical yet hopeful. It shows us that circumstance is not an excuse for not being able to go on with life. This blog is a must read.
