Bonus post today....

You may have noticed that the look of my blog changed a little bit recently.  I discovered Peek on Chelsea's blog. 

It's super easy.  You put in your website and a stranger will use the website and give you feedback in the form of a 5 minute video.  It is called usability testing- "the process of evaluating a site or product’s usability by letting real people try it".  I accidentally submitted my blog twice, but it turned out to be great.  Both users had different feedback-positive and negative and all of it was very constructive. 

Some changes that I implemented:
1-The column widths were expanded to make it easier to read.
2-I streamlined the right navigation column and  removed the contact me form.
3-I put my email information on the Contact Me! tab instead of using the contact form.  Less confusion.  I also changed the size and font on that page to be more consistent with the blog.

Future changes that I would like to make:
1-The header only links back to the home page.  I would like to make the pictures link to different things.
2-Improve picture quality.
3-Index posts and have a way to search.
4-Improve the other tabs so that they are more user friendly

Have you tried Peek?
Any other changes that you guys would like to see?  I love constructive criticism.  I am new to the blogging world and welcome any tips and improvements that would help make Life Begins at 30? a better place to visit!!!


  1. That is super cool. I'm totally going to check that out. Thanks!!

  2. I am loving the new look of your blog! I think it is great when people "refresh" the look of their site regularly.
