Your Comments and Suggestions Are Needed!

Hi everyone. I'm in the very beginning stages of research for a major site re-design and I was hoping I could get some comments and suggestions from all of you. I'm specifically looking for comments on these topics:

-Site navigation---Do you like the current layout of the site navigation? (ie., the horizontal nav bar)

-Post organization---Do you like the way the posts are currently being labeled? When searching for specific information, are these labels enough?

Suggestions---Anything you wish the site would include? What would make navigation easier?

Lastly and most importantly, what are your thoughts on adding a forum to this site. The forum would be a place for anyone to post a topic or question and have members of the community interact. Yay or nay?

Thanks everyone! I hope that with this re-design the blog will be even more beneficial to you!


  1. Hi,

    Good luck and congrats with the redesign! I am looking forward to what you come up with.

    I am chiming in to say that a forum would be a beneficial feature.

    As to navigation, simpler is better. I can't iterate it better than that.

  2. I think your site is to the point and easy to navigate. If you want to redesign to change the look, it can't be a bad idea... it's a little generic looking right now, maybe some food visuals would make it more interesting.

  3. I think a forum is a great idea. Good luck with your redesign - can't wait to see it!

  4. I have been a long time lurker & reader (I think this is my first comment though. I would love to see a more comprehensive about page including profiles & pictures of the writers. I would also like to section with some lay-terms & explanation on photography basics.

    I like the forum idea as well.

    I think to horizontal nav bar is fine, it gets you around the site just fine.

  5. Thanks for the comments everyone!

  6. Nav bar is fine- maybe some more on food styling, that would be nice- you may have done it already- I am a new reader and haven't "poked around" too much. A basics on SLRs would be great in "idiot" terms, lol! :)
