Anything and everything vaguely internet related. Blogging, industry, social media: if you can find it online, I've talked about it in here.

HONESTY PLEASE!

If I didn’t love reviewing so much I’d have given it up by now. I don’t get why people literally *demand* a review and then throw a temper tantrum when you don’t tell them how trendy they are. And for once I’m not talking about yoursite.nu… When someone says “HONESTY PLEASE” (just like that, in… read more →

Mozilla More Popular

6 months ago if anyone had asked me what sort of browsers that people browsing my site use I would have said “well, about 85% use Internet Explorer”; Mozilla/Firefox barely registered on my list. However, their time has certainly come – 40.2% of my visitors now use Firefox, and 0.9% Mozilla. That’s a combined total… read more →

Review of at-the-beginning.net

Reviewed: Sparky Site URL: at-the-beginning.net At The Beginning First thing I see is a big splodgy blue image. I’ve never seen the point of these trendy/grungy style images but people seem to be attracted to them so if you think this represents your site I have no objections. I do think, however, that the top… read more →

Review of sensorial.org/captious

Reviewed: Veve Site URL: sensorial.org/captious Subtle earthy tones are always a welcome colour scheme on a website because of the way they make a visitor (me in particular) feel mellow. This website is no exception. The green-coloured sidebar is too pronounced compared to the rest of the layout, but in general a relaxing overall look… read more →

Nostalgic Part 2

Even after you gals provided me with potential excuses yesterday, I still don’t understand the reasonings behind placing adverts on a personal site. For example — money.. if people can’t afford a domain or hosting in the first place, they shouldn’t be on the Internet. Why spend money you haven’t got, and then beg to… read more →

Nostalgic

Anyhow.. am I just being nostalgic and old-fashioned when I question web advertising and banners on personal web pages? Four or so years ago when I was a newbie “designer” without a domain name, I’d have killed to have found free hosting without a banner, because everyone knew that the ultimate in web design was… read more →

Review of acior.net

Reviewed: Jane Site URL: acior.net Despite how common this design is at the moment, there’s nothing more wonderful than a beautifully done colour scheme with a perfectly complimentary decorative image to tie things in together – something you have managed to achieve. Your text is an adequate size for me to read, and you seem… read more →

Review of crash.happy-dagger.net

Reviewed: Anne Site URL: crash.happy-dagger.net Your site immediately reminded me of David Dickinson. You’ve probably never heard of him – but if you look him up on Google images, you should see that he’s a badly tanned, bright orange antiques specialist that unfortunately appears in lots of daytime television here in the UK. This is… read more →

Review of aneesah.pixelled.com

Reviewed: Aneesah Site URL: aneesah.pixelled.com Firstly, my apologies for taking such a long time to get your review finished. Unfortunately, that is the woes of going on holiday not long after I open submissions. A slight error on my part, I think. I’ve said it time and time again – I love the integration of… read more →
