    This is my first blog and I'm looking for some creative feedback on the design, functionality and content, if this was your blog what you you change?

    The Blog is about buying a ruin and building a house in Portugal for people who are into food, architecture, design, travel and animals.

    I'd appreciate it if you could take time to have a look


    Thank you

    Hi Emma,

    First off, nice work! :) It's appealing to the first glance, easy on the eyes and quite clean. Just a couple of quick glitches (perhaps just me, but... this is for the record):

    One, I'm not a big fan of scrolling menus - I find them somewhat distracting at best and irksome at worst. I am not sure how useful it is to you, but I would seriously consider keeping that menu fixed on top.

    If you really want to, you can make that flag that is in the top-rightish area fixed (by using it as a background image with the background-attachment attribute set to fixed), with everything scrolling under it.

    I am not sure if it's just something with my browser, but none of the blog titles are clickable, although I have a feeling you intend them to be. A further problem that I'm facing is that the entire text on this page seems hyperlinked (again, this could just be something weird with my browser*), and this also appears unintentional.

    You might want the search box to get more visibility; I would push it on top.

    I'd probably also replace the image adverts with text ones, they do feel a bit... out of place? Maybe if you consider using smaller versions of the image lined up horizontally after the footer; it'll be more elegant, but this should just be a matter of taste.

    I like the text in the left sidebar, by the way.

    You may generally want sharper and smaller-radius rounded corners on your pictures. Also slightly thinner borders, maybe - but they look quite good already. And nice pictures too, especially the puppy :)

    That's about all that I could note at a quick glance. Good work, keep at it, and keep us updated!


    *My browser is Firefox 3.0.6, by the way.

    Thanks for the feedback. I'll check the blog titles. Strange the hyperlinking on this page now I see it too, should be something obvious.


    Thank you

    You're most welcome. Good luck with resolving the links issue, and your website in general.
