Swimmers

Have you just published a new post and are need some feedback? Do you need some advice on your blog theme & layout ? Maybe you’re a newbie and need to increase your audience?

Just leave your question in the comment section adding your blog’s address. I’m sure you’ll get the help you need.

Here are some tips to make this gathering a productive space

  • Don’t just throw your link and walk away, ’cause it will be seen as a spam.

  • Leave a comment or two in other bloggers’ comment
  • Don’t duplicate threads.
  • Be friendly.
  • If youโ€™re looking for a specific feedback, be specific.
  • To keep from losing your place, right-click on a link to open it in a new tab or window.
  • Spread the word that a new community pool is open
  • Most importantly : I know that some of you spam other bloggers to make themselves known by liking ALL their comments. Please DON’T DO THAT. I’m not Ben Huberman who can handle all your “likes“. I’m a lonely blogger who wants to make you a happy by allowing you to promote your blog on mine.
  • Have fun!!

    1. I dig your blog. I like the immediacy of your entries. I also focus quite often on travels and I hadn’t thought about actually posting the Bucket List so the cybersphere could check off the list with me. I’m “borrowing” that from you. One note of feedback (hope you find it constructive). The idea of Wrecked Hopes is interesting; your top photo is beautiful; your logo is pretty. If you are branding yourself, where are you going with this? They don’t go together, and you don’t say why Wrecked Hopes–I’m sure there’s a reason. Also, logo/brands are fun but… what would you do with it? Put the picture alone somewhere else so that people immediately think of you? Really, for a writer, your brand is your voice which comes through quite well in your posts. Just a few thoughts. –kajmeister.com

    2. Your logo is really really nice! Its clear, explains itself and I love the naturalistic colour! You have some beautiful photos on display and a very aesthetically pleasing layout and lively design. I like that you have a filled out map of the states you’ve been to in the USA!

    1. This is interesting. While reading this I learned a new word: cardiometabolic. I also was thinking of how the body chemistry of different people could affect these studies as well. For example, with something such as lung cancer there is a certain gene that causes this in certain people, but not everyone has this lung cancer gene.

      If a person who does not have this gene smokes, then they will never get lung cancer. They are still prone to cardiovascular disease though. On the flip side if a person has this lung cancer gene, and they smoke, then they will get lung cancer every time later in life.

      I think the same can be said of food as well. Some people can eat whatever they want without worrying about their cardiometabolic system in their bodies, and they never gain weight it seems. On the flip side there are people who can “look at food, and gain weight.” I put that in quotes as a joke, but it still applies to these studies. I find this interesting.

      1. That’s a great point: people will react differently to their environment (and this includes food, habits, etc.), so in the end, it is very difficult to say with absolute certainty what happens to the human body if it consumes x or y substance. There are general trends, but there will always be exceptions. But what I think people should really take from this article is that although weight is an indicator of risk for cardiometabolic disease and disease itself, it is not the only one. People with a normal weight should not assume that everything is fine on the inside just because the fat does not accumulate on the outside.

        1. This is very true. I know older people who have a lot of health problems due to high amounts of blockage in their blood vessels from eating too much unhealthy foods, but they are not physically fat in any way.

    1. I would like to try some of these. I have only played “Escape Room” games on PC, and Xbox One, but never been in an actual one. They seem interesting, and I would like to visit London someday as well.

    2. What a great post! Love the use of pictures, and that you are nice and clear with not-too-long paragraphs! ๐Ÿ™‚ When I have been interested in an escape rooms before, something that makes a big difference to me is finding out if they are good value (as some can sadly be really expensive! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ) It would be really helpful to know your opinion of the value in relation to the price the escape rooms, as knowing which escape rooms are great value are far more appealing! ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Oh thank you so much!! That’s exactly what I wanted to hear! You’re so right – some are crazy expensive (and not even that good!) – great idea, I will definitely try and re-edit to add the price value in the post! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Bonjour! Iโ€™m an English expat who recently fulfilled a life-long dream by moving to Paris. I write about my experiences and adventures here, in a way that I hope feels a bit like Iโ€™m having a chat with whoeverโ€™s reading. Itโ€™s a bit sarcastic, a bit funny (I hope!), and there are a fair few clichรฉs. Iโ€™ve been blogging for a few months now, but I havenโ€™t really had much feedback (unless you count my grandmother telling me how much she enjoys reading it, and would I post more frequently please) and I would really like some if anyone has any pointers!

    2. I was a little confused, part of it due to terminology. By calling card, are you referring to a business card? Also, I couldnโ€™t tell if the image (which is very pretty) is supposed to be the card.

      1. Thanks for the feedback. Yes, in essence a calling card is the same as a business card. I intend to use it to introduce people to my blog as well as introduce myself to people and places that I would like to blog about. And yes, the image is the front and back of the card.

    1. You have some great tips. I used to type up documents on my PC, and then upload them straight to WordPress, but I got tired of the re-editing. Now, I just type straight into WordPress for the most part. I will see about implementing some of your tips when I write again. God bless you.

  1. Hey everyone! My latest post โ€œWhereโ€™s Viniโ€™s Story?โ€ just went live on my site today. You can (please) check it out at, http://www.janeridgewood.com โ€“ along with my other posts of course.

    So I really want to share more of my writing journey and things about my process, but Iโ€™m not exactly sure where to really begin. Iโ€™ve shared a few updates on the progress for my horror novel that I am publishing later this year, but I guess I hope to discover more of what people might be interested to know about in regards to me as a writer and the journey that I am taking to self-publication with my debut novel. What would you want to know from authors/writers you enjoy reading? What sorts of things make you curious about the writing world?

  4. Hi there! Mine is a blog on life experiences, our new family, reviews and real talk.
    Disclaimer:some of my posts are long. But there is definitely little gems in there.

    https://snyderfambam.wordpress.com/2018/05/30/just-a-little-about-me-and-the-fambam/

    I have a few other posts up besides that, but it gives you an idea of my personality, and what to expect of what is to come.

    Any tips would be welcome. (:
    I would be very happy to get more readers on my page.

  5. Hi Everyone!

    It would be wonderful if you guys would be able to have a little look at my most recent blog post – I wrote an excerpt of a story using the results I got from a Random Word Generator! I had a lot of fun writing it, and would love to know your thoughts! If you leave some feedback, I will 100% be sure to check out your blog and interact with you too!

    Some things I would particularly like to know is how you feel the ambience builds, do you see the imagery clearly in your mind? Do the metaphors ‘flow’? Were you immersed? Let me know! ๐Ÿ™‚ The more detail the better!

  6. Hi everyone,

    I’ve been reading through this thread and I’m so happy to have found more people to connect with, read etc.

    I write about my life experiences, but recently I think I have found my niche! I am a halfie and I find I get the most pleasure from writing when I write about my experiences relating to my ethnicity (i.e., culture and identity).

    My most recent post is called, Being An Interracial Couple In South Korea

    https://bornintothewildlife.wordpress.com/2018/06/03/being-an-interracial-couple-in-south-korea/?preview=true

    Getting to the point of writing about culture and identify took some time as I understand I could be a sensitive topic and I was afraid of backlash. But this blogging community is so amazing that I received nothing but support. So thank you to the person reading this and thank you wordpress blogosphere!

  7. This is a great information and I thank you so much for it! I actually started my blog July of last year. My main goal is to help encourage others that are battling life with a chronic illness. I want to do as much as I can to help people. I wrote a post today regarding a struggle I had with FMLA and was hoping it was helpful to others. I really hope I am sending it to you the right way!

  8. Wow I am really late to the (pool) party. But hi, I’m Knurly. I write a lot of style-related content with my own twist on it. I’m really bad at taking things seriously (hint: doesn’t fit my brand too well) I also thrift 95% of what I own.

    Anyway, I haven’t received any comments on my last post but I posed a question that I really need answered. It’s super philosophical and deep (no it’s not.)

  9. Hello Swimmers, how’s the water?

    Hope to make some new acquaintances here, and read some brilliant blogs. My own started out as a way to document my writing but has morphed more into my stream of consciousness ranging from music, art, my wanders, mental health, and opinion. One of my more recent posts was on the nature of choice and you!

    Feel free to visit and say hi, and I shall do likewise๐Ÿ˜Š

    Cheers
