France King

The French Journal

“A site for Francophiles. Notes on France, its culture, history, geography, food, wine, travel, and more…and, of course, Paris!”

Visual Aesthetics – 7

Neat and contained. However, the column for the content is a bit too small making the text look a bit too packed. The underlined links also do not look very nice although it is good for usability. This blog looks pleasant enough but would definitely benefit from a little dressing up.

User Friendliness – 8

Positives: Fast loading time. Readable though a bit too packed text. Distinct links. Informative posts. Organized sidebar. Neat look. Negatives: Very irritating Snaps. No link to previous posts at the bottom of the page.

Reading Enjoyment – 7

The entries all contain very informative content although most of them sound too newsy and dry for my taste.

Useful Info – 10

Though the author isn’t French and doesn’t live anywhere near France the blog is as useful as any if you want to learn anything about France. A very good resource on France indeed.

Overall Experience – 10

You wouldn’t really visit this site for the fun and relaxing reads but to get useful information.
