- Hi Delainey, I saw you hadn't gotten any feedback yet so I thought I'd check out your blog! The first thing I noticed was that it's very busy. You've got every kind of possible feed going on and things scrolling on your sidebar and a bright yellow background. It kind of made my head hurt after a while. However, I guess this matches your personality because you use a lot of italics, bold, capital letters, and exclamation points so you seem like a really enthusiastic/excitable person. Not my style, but you seem to have a good number of readers, so it's working for you to some extent. Your content seems pretty scarce. I mean, most of your content seems to be blog memes (questionnaires, song linkups, Wordless Wednesday, soliciting reader questions). When you take the initiative to write something yourself it's mostly a few paragraphs complaining about something or other going on in your life. As a visitor, I don't see anything that really makes me want to stay and read. Nothing particularly thoughtful or helpful, just a lot of dramatic whining. I mean, the tag that has the second-highest number of posts out of all your tags is "Bleh." I'm sorry if this sounds harsh, but I can't think of a nicer way to put it! You asked for honest feedback, and this is what I see. Even though you're probably not liking me too much right now, I'm going to offer some unsolicited advice, and that is to really put some effort into communicating with your future husband. Right now I don't get the sense that you have a trusting and mutually respectful relationship, and you can't be running off to post something every time he does something that annoys you. If you don't want him to leave the vacuum in the middle of the room, you have to tell him instead of just leaving it and hoping he'll get the hint. If you want him to say thank you more often, tell him that's important to you. Check out the book Spousonomics for a better way to approach household chores; the book The Five Love Languages for understanding how you show and expect love; and the podcast One Extraordinary Marriage for advice on building all levels of intimacy (physical, emotional, financial, etc.). Good luck with your blog, your upcoming wedding, and your marriage!
Maybe I am being a tad bit defensive but isn't this a tad bit rude? I mean, I feel like she's critiquing my life. And the comments about T & I's relationship? Who does this beeotch think she is commenting about my life and relationship!? Looks to me someone needs to get off their high horse.
I guess that is the last time I'll ever ask for Blog feedback. I love my blog, and I write whatever I feel. I never planned on writing something profound every day. I just planned on writing about me, my life, my stories, my marriage.
P.S Dramatic Whining? Last time I checked expressing one's feelings was a healthy action...
