Visual Aesthetics – 8
Rev Trev has a very clean look, and the header is really optimal for the site’s content. The posts also have supplementary images that add to the visual experience. The home page can be tweaked some more, though. For example, additional visual elements can be utilized instead of simply having the download/sign up box in the upper left side.
User Friendliness – 6
In my opinion, this is the weakest point of Rev Trev. There are three posts that can be found at the bottom of the home page, but there seems to be no way to acces other posts from this page. (You may see other posts if you click on one of the posts in home page – other links are shown then.) Sections such as previous posts, archives, popular posts, tags, and so on can be added for easier navigation. More so, once you go to the home page, a box will pop up asking you to subscribe/download a free book. While this may be a marketing strategy, it can be quite intrusive, especially since the same box can be seen on the home page already.
Reading Enjoyment – 10
Rev Trev has an engaging writing style and you will find yourself wanting to read more of what he wants to share. He presents Biblical passages and ideas in really interesting and relevant ways.
Useful Info – 10
If inspiration and motivation is what you need, then Rev Trev is an excellent blog to visit. Each post targets specific topics/situations and you will definitely walk away with something that can be applied to your life.
Overall Experience – 7
Content-wise, Rev Trev is excellent. It just needs a little work in terms of the visual experience and user friendliness. Other than that, this blog gets a thumbs up!
Thanks for the critique. I often change the front page to make it more user friendly. Don’t care to have a look of a blog. It’s turning into a community site with a growing active company of friends.
