    Just a small family blog I created for the family. My first WordPress blog, so I've been researching plug-ins and what not. Going for a simple, classy look.

    Any suggestions of comments on how to make it better are welcomed.

    Good work!

    The only thing I would like to highlight is SEO URLs. You can probably use customized URLs instead of these http://ourlifeintext.com/?cat=8

    I'll have to check into what that is. Not to knowledgable on SEO. Any advice is appreciated.

    I changed the permalink structure as mentioned. Any content ideas that would want people to maybe subscribe or trade blogroll links?

    Might help for you to tie in your twitter account with your blog using a plug-in like Tweet This. That's how I like to keep track of other blogs.

    Sweet site. I really like it, even the sidebar header fonts, even though Flicker photos sort of read Fu**R photos.

    Light (as in weight) feeling, good color and image choices along with balanced text and images.

    I hope some day wordpress can apply a frame-based (ol school) medhod to freeze header and sidebars. One can only hope, or maybe I'm just not looking in the right places.

    good stuff.

    Yeah, my wife told me that the other day ... it does! lol. Maybe I'll change the font one day.

    Thank you for the comments. :D

    Sweet site, nice design. Just wondering, why you want to put your personal life on the internet like that? You trying to be like the Duggards or something?

    I don't know who the Duggards are. Sorry.

    Great looking site! Very visually appealing and great use of white space.

    One thing that might help with navigation is having categories. Having a 4-6 category subnav could do wonders to revive older articles.

    Lastly, there are several things you could work on, namely SEO and community building. Generating comments on your articles is one way to tackle both in the short term. With an Alexa of 4.2m and PR2 home page, it's probably time to schedule promotional activities into your blog workload.
