I try to offer constructive suggestions based upon my knowledge and experience of what works or what does not work. I understand reading reviews of your own work may not be pleasant and you may tend to ignor it with the rationalization that "they don`t know what they are talking about".
It is especially easy to rationalize when there is a wide diversity of reviews... that is, reviews that contradict each other. Who is the website owner to believe? I`m sure all the reviewers believe their comments are valid.
There is some level of frustration on the reviewer`s part too... when I see and comment on something that I think is important to change (to improve the website) and it does not happen. However, I try only to make a suggestion once... so I don`t beat it to death . If the website owner incorporates my suggestion fine, if not, that`s ok too... it is their website and thus their decision.
The advice/review is free. So, it may be worth the price . If I were hired to make suggestions to improve a website, I would be more forcefull in guiding the client.
Hello, everyone...I am a newbie to "SUN", and I think this thread is truly wonderful! So...I am going to try and take full advantage of using it...it is not often when you can get truthful feedback about your "baby" or "pet project", (especially from friends or family) and, in this case, a project that I hope will not only become my primary source of income, but, eventually provide enough income for me to also help produce seed money for an adjunct business. Now, on to the desired critique.
My website is Working Girl Gems, and the address is www.workinggirlgems.com . I also have utilized Hyperstreet`s webhosting as well as their website builder feature. However, since my background is pretty extensive in computers and networking, I also utilize an FTP site to make necessary corrections and changes that I feel Hyperstreet`s program is remiss in, primarily the SEO side of this equation. (Some of the ability to upload files is cumbersome also and I am very comfortable with FTP, so, I use it.)
What I really wish to have critiqued is the following:
I appreciate any and all comments from serious responders! And...I thank all who do in advance...
