Visual Aesthetics – 8
The blog’s overall look is very stark, only broken by images here and there. The colors are very earthy and sometimes makes it a bit hard to read the long text. I do like the use of the eagle with the American flag on its face in the header, though. I think it’s brilliant!
User Friendliness – 9
I had no problems with load time while accessing the various pages in the blog. I also like how neat the blog is, with links provided in the right column and at the top of the page. The links are not expanded – you will be taken to another page to view them, but it is not much of an issue since pages load up really quickly. One thing I want to suggest is to break up the text with more relevant photos – it’s a bit too text heavy. If you like that kind of reading, though, then you will not have any problems.
Reading Enjoyment – 10
I have to be honest – I did not have that much fun reading through the posts. I am not taking this against Barry, however, as the posts were very well-written and quite engaging. The problem, I think, is that I am not that interested in the focus of the blog. For those who are into politics and the current issues in the US, though, I think you’ll have a great time reading Barry’s posts!
