Hello everyone,

I was wondering if I could get some feedback on my blog called Lyved. Lyved is for all those who want to look back at their life and rest peacefully knowing that they have learned as much about the world around them as possible and lived life to it’s fullest. To do this you must be open to a variety of topics such as world news, life stories, culture, dreams, and more. All of this Lyved will cover with a new and positive perspective.

If you could visit Lyved here, have a look around and give me some advice I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks,

Andrew

I really like the topics on the blog and overall design, in fact, I suscribed to your feed ;)

Just a suggestion, maybe I would make the logo different, and write a slogan next to it.

Cheers!

I like the photos, but they greatly slowed load time.

Successeries- the link took me to an outside site, so you should have it open in another window.

Over all, looks good.

Thanks for the quick response. The images are embedded so they aren't coming from my server so I can't help that. I like to have a visual for each post. As for the links I'll have to remember to set it so that links open in new pages.

Thanks

Sorry Jorge, I didn't even see your response before. I was thinking about placing the slogan next to the logo as well, but I think I'll hold off until restructure the blog and implement ads in the future. And thanks for subscribing!

Hmm, kurtyordy do you have dial up?

Thanks everyone!

:eusa_clap: I must thank you because your blog is how I found out about this website! Kudo for the links.
The inspirational/motivational quotes with pictures work for me. I am going to have to bookmark you and keep checking you out.
P.S. I found you by STUMBLEUPON so that is a plus for that site.

Took awhile to check back on this thread. yes, I was on dialup, and even worse, another site I was on was dragging things wayyy down as well. Sorry for that inaccurate feedback.

Congrats on the launch.

I am interested in advertising, but honestly, to new to know, right hand side where you have the 'advertise here click to inquire' box, is that the below the fold box?

I just visited the site and saw your latest article. Digg provides buttens to integrate the digging right there, you may want to try it.

Thanks Tom! As for the digg buttons, I tried to integrate them but it wasn't working right. Sometimes the buttons would show 0 diggs when it really had over 100.

Sometimes the ads aren't related but that's not my fault, that's adsense's. But other times, the ads are spot on. It depends on what the article is about and what type of ads are in the adsense network. But yeah, I do get a decent amount of clicks.

Yeah that's true. I've only had my ads on for a few weeks. But adsense is not my main revenue stream, nor will it ever be. I have ads from GreenAdWorks and I have private ad spots as well.
