The review isn’t great either. Well, the blog review itself is fine, my results were bad. It turns out that the site has more problems than I was aware of.

RT Cunningham at Untwisted Vortex had this to say about the FanaticSpace blog…

…as I viewed this blog with my widescreen display in Firefox, I noticed the sidebar was below the content. Thinking that it might be a Firefox display issue, I fired up Internet Explorer to take a look. Same thing. I then reduced my window to 1024×768 in Internet Explorer and everything lined up right. I did the same thing with Firefox and it still didn’t line up on the left like it should. This theme needs some work.

Ouch. That’s pretty bad. I don’t have access to a widescreen monitor, so I had no idea this was happening. It’s tough to hear something like that when you’ve worked so hard, but I appreciate honesty. Looks like I’m going to have to find a different blog template. Yes, I’ll probably make alterations to that one too. I just hope I can do a better job this time. I’ll try not to tear it up like I did the last one.

Some problems I was aware of, like the forums, and the sporadic posting. I just need to admit the forums are dead and take ‘em down. Maybe they’ll be back if the site grows. The posting is something I’ve been trying to work on. I’ve done a bit of backsliding lately though. He’s right though, I need to pick up the pace a bit and post regularly.

I’d like to thank Mr. Cunningham for the review. It’s helped me realize that the blog has more problems than I thought. I have a lot of work to do.

Edited to Add:
If you know of a free blog theme similar in layout to what I’ve had here, but not broken, please let me know. Shoot, let me know if there is a free theme that you think would be good for the site. I’d appreciate any help.

    From a girl who sucks at accepting constructive criticism, consider this a virtual pat on the back.

    I totally would love to see more frequent posts here. Your writing is great and your opinions are well thought out.

    The theme is fixable. It’s like a hot guy in a really bad outfit. The other way around is so much harder to fix: crap blog with cool theme.

    Anyway, I’m rambling…

    Thanks for the support. I really appreciate that.

    I’ve been trying to pick up the pace lately on the posting. I hope to work my way up to posting at least once a day. That’s more than it sounds like, since I have to post once a day on my 451 press blog.

    Then there’s all the other stuff I need to get done. Including fixing the theme or getting a different one.

    Now I’m rambling…
