Build a Better Blog: Watch a First Time Reader

Build a Better Blog: Watch a First Time Reader

Welcome back to the Build a Better Blog Challenge!   This week’s task is to interact with someone who has never seen your blog before.  I have an unexpected advantage since my blog is newly redesigned and so even my regular readers are more like “first time readers”.   So friends, what do you think?    Darren provides a list of questions, and I’d love to hear your thoughts!

  • What were your first impressions?
  • Did you find it easy to read/navigate/understand?
  • What did you feel when you first arrived at Growing Kids Ministry?
  • What suggestions do you have on how I could improve the blog?
  • What questions do you have after surfing your blog?
  • What words would you use to describe the design?
  • What are the main elements you  remember about your blog 10 minutes later?
  • What suggestions do you have from a user perspective?
I think I’ll also have some family members take a look at it and maybe some friends from church to see what they think. This way I’ll be able to observe them directly.  Let me know how the exercise goes for you!

  1. * What were your first impressions? – It’s clean, simple, easy to read but is missing kids/color & a cross coming out of the grass… just my thoughts
    * Did you find it easy to read/navigate/understand? Absolutely
    * What did you feel when you first arrived at Growing Kids Ministry? – I’ve been reading your post for a month – I enjoy your insights – what if you added some colorful bullets..
    * What words would you use to describe the design? clean / simple
    * What are the main elements you remember about your blog 10 minutes later? the grass and the fun font
