Visual Aesthetics – 10
Higher Pound gives a very good first visual impression. It is free of clutter and yet has enough visual elements to keep your attention. The header is simple, with an unmistakable background image. The posts are a nice blend of text and images, with the occasional photo montage.
User Friendliness – 9
Higher Pound is a relatively new blog, so it really is no issue navigating the content. With the recent posts, archives, and categories easily accessible, however, even when the content expands, users will still find this a friendly blog. One thing: there seems to be an error in the “Top List” section.

Whether you are recovering from an addiction or not, you will find some enjoyment reading the posts in Higher Pound. This is a well-written blog, with a mixture of prose and poetry, and as I said, photo collections.
Useful Info – 10
