My Lighter Side

This blog is by a woman who traces her roots to Germany but who has been happily married to her American husband for over 23 years. In her blog, she talks about her everyday life experiences as a housewife.

Visual Aesthetics ? 7

The blog?s predominantly pale blue theme blends perfectly with the photo of the ocean on its title. Although neatly laid out with links to the left and posts to the right, the lack of margins within posts makes the page look cramped and sorely needing breathing space.

User Friendliness ? 6

Downloading the blog, one gets confused as to which page is the home page as the URL opens up to a post complete with comments which, it turns out, is not the home page.

Reading Enjoyment ? 7

The author writes in an entertaining manner and uses the appropriate photos to accompany her posts. Her use of links within posts, however, needs attention as there are cases when a wrong reference is linked to. Overall though, the blog is entertaining and has received a lot of comments.

Useful Info ? 5

The author has no useful links within her blog in support of her posts

Overall Experience ? 7

Despite its cramp appearance, this blog can be quite entertaining though I doubt it will be bookmarked.
