    Readability and navigation.


  2. Huge headers that take up my entire screen when I first land on your page are slightly overwhelming. Simple can be best! Too many blog buttons, too big/gaudy of a header and a small content area are big no-no’s.


  3. A clean look that’s easy on the eyes and well laid out. Search bar, menu, contact info – all should be easy to find. I don’t want to scroll forever to find your GFC link or have to hunt to figure out how to follow you on Twitter.

    A blog that makes it easy for me to comment and find information quickly without having to click several links to find what I’m looking for. Also, have one central theme for design, for instance if your design consist of a butterly theme stick with it, don’t have butterflies, stars, kittens and rainbows.
