The Bold and the Beautiful - Review my Blog!

So I've been doing this blogging thing for about 6 months now. I've fooled around a little bit with my layout but haven't gotten too crazy with the gadgets and whatnot. I'm just not that tech-savvy, nor do I have that much spare time on my hands. But, I am always open to suggestions for improvement!  I was once graced by some great feedback on my blog from Cassie over at Hi Sugarplum! (for which I am eternally grateful!! Love ya Cassie!). But I know I am (in all facets of my life) a work in progress.

So that is why I am excited to be part of a very unique blog hop. Gail @ My Repurposed Life and MeganDVD @ Beauty in the Attempt are hosting “The Bold and the Beautiful-your blog reviewed”.

By doing so, I am basically inviting Gail, MeganDVD and other guests to my blog to give me tips and advice about what might or might not be pleasing to the eye (or ear) on my blog. {Gently} of course! :) So, that said...

Please take a look around my blog, check out the layout, pages, buttons,  sidebar and gadgets. I would love for you to gently critique my blog. Of course, I’m hoping you will leave me some positive feedback about my blog and tell me all of the great things you like! :)  But it would be great if you could give me constructive criticism too. Do you like my pictures? Does my blog load quickly for you? How about the font?  Do you enjoy the content? All tips and tidbits welcome!

Thank you!!

Pin It!


  1. Hi! Your layout looks clean and organized. I like the tabs on the top, and I'm trying to figure out how to add those to my blog. It looks like everything on your sidebar is in a nice order.
    A lot of people have told me to put a "popular post" gadget on my sidebar, so that might be something you'd want to do. I'm also a fan of bigger fonts, since I can't always find my reading glasses.

  2. Hello!! Stopping in from the Blog Hop :0) I really love your blog layout, but the pages across the top get a tad lost (maybe the color too closely resembles that of your header?) Other than that, great job!

  3. Hi Kyra!
    popping in via the blog hop! great little blog you have here! just a couple of minor critiques.. the taps across the top blend in with your background, and are very difficult to read. and maybe consider moving up the archives a bit on the sidebar? other than that.. great job! :)
    hope to see ya around my random neighborhood sometime! :)
    many blessings,

  4. I think your blog looks great. I do agree with the previous post about the tabs not standing out quite enough but you can still tell they're there. Stop by and tell me what you think about mine!

  5. Love your fancy fonts :) Also love the "You might also like" after your posts. Great way to move around to different posts I might have missed otherwise.
    I agree with what everyone said - the tabs get lost. Maybe pull it down a bit from the header and make the font bigger? Or what about a different than the rest? Hard to say - we all have our own personal preferences! Just something to make it stand out on it's own so we all want to check it out!
    You are doing a terrific job - keep up the great work!!

  6. different font than the rest I meant to say - kind of lost "font" there!! Sorry!

  7. I think your blog is very easy to navigate, the fancy fonts are a little hard to read on the title bar, but overall not that bad... it might just be my computer, but the first comment always goes on top of the you might also like links... it is odd - but it is all the time, not just once - I might have to take a screenprint and send it to you :)
    Overall I really like - it of course I read it daily - LOL :)

  8. I like your blog! The header is great, I like the name too, catchy!
    Your links open in new windows! yay! Your pics are a nice size, everything looks super!
    I can't think of a single thing to change. I might suggest that if you do not blog in Windows live writer, you might want to try it. A busy working mom like yourself should be able to blog quickly and easily!
    super job Kyra!
    ps thanks for linking up, I hope you're making some new friends!

  9. Hello my dear! Thank you for linking up to our little party. As I peruse your little world...I am quite pleased as a peach. I think you have GREAT composition and color choices. My only gentle suggestion is to move up your followers to right under you. Many bloggers choose within 1 minute if they plan to follow a new lovely blog they fall upon. I think you can entice and tease them even more to follow you by placement of your followers. Once again this is just a suggestion and I know your blog is still defined by how it will best suit you. :) Thank you for taking the risk and hopefully you have had a delightful time and gained a few new friends along the way. I hope to see more of you in my little corner. Have a great Sunday.


  10. Oh geez...I hate being asked for constructive criticism because I'm usually loving most everything.
    But...maybe your header can be a little more spruced up?...I don't know for sure, right, because I'm not good at this stuff. But I wanted to at least offer something to this assignment!

  11. I do agree with your blog. It’s really bold and beautiful. I enjoyed viewing your posts. Actually I am surfing for some toddler costumes. Please share some designs.


Thank you for taking the time to comment! I read every single one and enjoy visiting your blogs in return!
