I’d welcome any feedback you could offer on my shop blog: http://kittyandpolly.wordpress.com/
What a fantastic blog! I love the pictures and the posts are really readable, well done!
I particularly like the links to specific pages on your website and that you’ve created some extra pages. You could have put your pages widget a bit higher on the side bar, but as you have links across the top this probably doesn’t matter.
What else can you do? I don’t want to spoil the overall effect, but you could move the comments widget below the recent posts widget – don’t hide your feedback, encourage it!
You could promote your newsletter on your side bar. As this is a free WordPress blog you aren’t allowed sign-up forms, but you could get around this by using a text widget with an image of your newsletter linked to a specific webpage with the newsletter sign-up form on it. This has worked for me! Place the text widget high up on the side bar to encourage action.
And why not move your blog icon further up your website to encourage more visitors from that end?
Finally sign up to feedburner.com or feedblitz.com to get your blog’s RSS URL, and place the code for a RSS button and new post subscription link in a text widget. This is to encourage more readers to follow your latest activities. And remember to place the widget at the very top of your side bar where it is really noticeable.
Other than that I think your blog is truly great!
