Blog Review #1- The Sounds Of Grace

Hear ye, hear ye! It’s time for the first blog review!

I will be reviewing The Sounds Of Gracewritten by Esther.

My reviews will be constructed in a simple format:

Design

Content

Logo (If applicable)

Pages

Accessibility

Overall Ratings

Each section will have an individual rating. At the end, I will give my overall rating.

Whew! So now we’ve got that over with, let the blog reviewing begin!


The Sounds Of Grace, by Esther

Blog Review written by Liv from Liv Dreams

Design

The header text and tagline is not clearly visible against the background. The body is a good color and I can clearly see the search bar. The pages bar is clearly labeled. However, the heading of the sidebar widgets are a little hard to see. She gives you a little blurb about herself in the sidebar, which I like because it makes me enjoy the blog more when I get to know someone.

Rating: 8.0/10


Content

Esther is only allowed to post when her parents say it’s ok, so that is why there are not a lot of posts on her blog. However, I still have to deduct points for that. Her Stories/Poems page doesn’t have anything on it. I like the Code of Conduct page because it helps avoid unwanted comments without having to give a personal message to each violator. Her posts are deep and give a good message about God.

Rating: 7.5/10


Logo

The Sounds of Grace has a logo designed by Esther. It is a good logo, but it is pixelated. The color doesn’t go with the header image, they’re too many shades of blue. It takes away from the ocean waves. Also, the fonts don’t match. I can’t tell what the little square thing in the corner of the tab (I’m not sure what that’s called?) says.

Rating: 6.0/10


Pages

As aforementioned, her pages are clearly labeled. As I also said, there is nothing on her Stories/Poems page. Her about page reiterates the widget in her sidebar.The Ask Away page is clearly worded and I got a good idea of what she was looking for.

Rating: 9.0/10


Accesibility

You might be a little confused on this category. This is how easy it is to find things on your blog.

I can clearly see the search button. I HATE WHEN I CAN’T FIND THE SEARCh BUTTON ON A BLOG!!! It annoys the HECK out of me. *clears throat* Anyways, let’s get back to the review.

I can find things on the pages. Large chunks of text (for the most part) are broken into smaller paragraphs. There aren’t a million  sub-menus that makes it hard to find things. There’s only one row of pages. (This is just a personal pet peeve.)

Rating: 9.0/10


Overall Rating

I give this blog… a… *drumroll*  8.0/10! That means I would recommend this blog to most!  Good job, Esther, and I hope to see more posts from you in the future!


Thanks!

Thanks for reading this review! Unless you were skimming. Were you skimming? *gives you the evil eye* No, I’m joking. 🙂 Mostly. Thanks, Esther, for letting me review your blog! I hope this was helpful to you!

Edit: Esther runs TSOG with her friend Ozi. She can only post when her Mom allows her too.

xoxo,

liv
