I need some opinions.

I'm getting quite frustrated with the layout of this blog. Whilst I really love being able to customise the template and make it look how I like, I have to compromise on things like a follow button and the ability for people to make comments easily. Plus I think my latest attempt just made everything look a bit messy.

I am contemplating switching back to using a template supplied by Blogger so I can have all of the lovely perks, just means I'll have to hunt for a really nice one.

I'd also like some opinions on content.
I've been blogging for almost 7 months now, but I don't feel like I'm getting anywhere and I know my posts can be very hit and miss. I've kind of lost my focus. Is there anything you'd like to see more of? Any writing aspects or topics you think I'm particularly good at? I don't want to fall into some cliche category of blogging and disappear into obscurity, but I'd definitely like to have a bit more focus.

All comments/opinions/feedback/criticisms will be completely appreciated! 

Love, love.

  2. As far as layout goes, just keep trying new things until it's the way YOU want it to be. It's your blog; YOU need to be happy with it.

    I struggled with content for a while, too, because I don't HAVE/WANT a "niche" :) I've realized that I don't know enough about one subject to write an entire blog about it! So, I just make sure I focus my posts. Each post is usually about one topic (bad driving, marriage, the Super Bowl, Valentine's Day, etc.). They're broad enough to relate to lots of people, but they're MY thoughts/opinions on those topics.

    And, occasionally, I do a post that's just about what's going on in my life.

    Also, I try to have pictures :)

    So, don't get all worried about trying to find a niche or anything. Be true to yourself, focus your posts on one subject per post, and keep up the great work.

  3. Essentially what Christine said. Blog about what feels special to *you*. That is what renders each blog a bit unique!

    Now, as for a suggestion: I think the font could be just a tad bit larger. You need something that is a bit easy on the eyes to read. I quite like the layout! ^.^

  5. Thank you all for the great comments and positive feedback, I think I'm going to go back to a simpler template now for sure.

    Double thank you also because you all gave me the warm fuzzies and made me smile when I was just about to get fed up with this thing :)
