In my opinion it’s a good practice for bloggers to get their blogs reviewed every now and then if they want to find out what others see when they look at their blog. Recently I requested a review on a website and I agreed with some of what they said—like the fact that I should promote a bit more to get my blog a bit more exposure—but some things that were pointed out were way off in my opinion. For example, I was told that I “randomly capitalize” my blog post titles, but for those who have knowledge of the “American” style of writing know that I generally follow the rules to a T. Of course I make mistakes, but I’m only human. Either way, this one questionable reviewed led me to requesting reviews on other sites, but recently a received a review that I had not asked for and it was a pleasant surprise.
Yesterday morning I checked my blog to find that someone was linking back to some of my posts, which is always a nice surprise and greatly appreciated. The link came from another blog called Forum Flavor, which is owned by Geoffrey. Of course I had to check it out and to my surprise I found a wonderful review of Familial Ramblings. I really appreciated Geoffrey’s review not only because it was a positive one, but also because he actually looked at my blog and took the time to get to know it. In one review I receive, they claimed that I made up the word “familial” without bothering to look it up in the dictionary. Unlike this reviewer, Geoffrey actually took the time to spare a few minutes to actually check the dictionary where he found that it was indeed a real word.
I need to send out a big THANK YOU to Geoffrey for taking the time to write this wonderful review. I really appreciate the kind words that were said and I really loved getting to see what someone else sees when they look at my blog. Thank you again!
If you want to check out Geoffrey’s blog Forum Flavor, make sure to click any of the three links in this post. I’d highly recommend checking this blog out because despite its young age, it is already filled with useful, easy to understand information for administrators.
