Visual Aesthetics – 7
The blog uses a variation of the default WordPress Kubrick theme. It’s simple, yet elegant. And most especially, it’s standards-compliant, which is a plus in my book! The site’s color scheme provides maximum contrast and readability. Advertisements are present, but are not obtrusive, as they are located in the bottom parts of the sidebar- you won’t miss it if you’re looking for sports-related books or literature.
User Friendliness – 7
The blog’s sporting a Kubrick theme makes it more navigable than most other blogs. The blog’s long articles are usually summarized, so the front page only displays the first few paragraphs. Clicking on the title or a “read more” link opens the static page with the complete article. Links to the homepage, previous, and next articles are also conveniently located on the top portion of the site, for easy access.
