My poetry community site

Post by johnny73 » Tue Nov 17, 2009 6:13 pm

This is my poetry website. http://www.coffeeconnectionpoets.com/

As with all my sites i do not travel to far from the norm.

Currently using japurity template. Joomlapack for back up. idoblogcommunity2 for the content posting software, user ratings etc. gsitecrawler for sitemaps etc.

jvlink exchange for well the link exchange option.

Have tinkered with functionality and features over the last 6 months but with help from members have settled on this layout. The site could probably do with some colour and bigger pictures and I'm working on that.

Considering the links and content we have I'm very happy with the page loading times.
To find the answer...do some work.

On the whole, the site design looks sort of bland, but you already acknowledged that so it's a moot point... Clearly you are doing something right as you have a solid user base. Your page load times are good and you have your own favicon...

The only thing that I can see that I would change immediately is the google ads on the top. I would make them more subtle by making their background colour the same grey as your menu, and make the google ad text the same as your menu text. I think that would look way better, and you might even get more 'accidental' clicks, which still pay the same 10 cents apiece :D

Good job!
