    Hey all,

    I just wanted some pro bloggers to check out my site and let me know if I should take anything away or add anything. The blog has been up for two weeks now, and it's been a lot of fun!! The only thing is keeping up with posting everyday...well, posting Monday through Friday. The about page shows the format I'm trying to keep with. Let me know!

    The site:

    The Frosted Pineapple

    Thanks for your time!

    Ah well the site looks good and all, but would greatly help the visitor if you add some intro-text on some prominent location to explain what is the site about.

    As initially from the domain name i thought it might be a site related to Pineapples but it's rather your personal blog. So you might want to add a text or two mentioning that a bit more loudly :)

    Rest is ok, not bloated with ads ... lots of content already with different types of posts, a better lightbox for images won't hurt also .. Good luck.

    I love those sexy images. Keep 'em coming :-D

    Oh as a matter of fact I totally second the above poster's opinion. I too went to your site thinking it had to be about pineapples (i love 'em, specially in summer time) but what I saw was a personal blog

    I think my site is a decent example. I'm not shamelessly promoting my site here but I'm just demonstrating an example.

    The site's URL is http://www.gimliglider.com but it's got nothing to do with either Gimli, Canada or gliders, gliding etc. Rather what it deals with is: "aviation, computers, electronic gadgets, daily happenings & anything that its author considers archive-worthy"

    And I do state the purpose of the site very clearly at the top of the page inside the iphone pic right below the header: "“Yet another totally ad-free blog that carries some articles on aviation, computers, electronic gadgets, daily happenings & anything that its author considers archive-worthy” — Gimli"

    Also the site has an About Me page that details what the site is all about and what it's not.

    Hope this helps

    Thanks for the responses!!!

    I see what you mean. There is an about page in the upper right, which explains the format. I edited the line just below the title. Let me know if this works a little bit better.
