RE: Some Blogs by Blue Dalek

Blue Dalek asked me to critique his work. There is more than one blog under this name. I will try to comment as much as possible about several of his blogs.

Meanwhile why don't you go to his profile? You can give an opinion yourself in the comment section here.

There are four blogs listed in his profile. They are:

Doctor Whoniverse
Ye Old Curiousity Shop
Doctor Whoniverse

These sites download fast. This is great! Too long a time to download and you lose visitors.

 They are also imaginatively designed. People like pretty sites so long as they do not take a long time to download.

There is one glaring problem. The URLs do not match the titles as a general rule. Take for instance Doctor Whoniverse. The URL is:http://bluedalekcrack.blogspot.com/. An example of a URL that can be used for this website could be Doctor Whoinverse.blogspot.com or Dr. Whoinverse.blogspot.com  Then there UNIT ONLINE is with the URl: http://fightingaliens.blogspot.com/. How about the URL: http://unitonline.blogspot.com? Get the idea?This makes it easier for the surfer to find the site if URL and title of site match somewhat.. Also makes it easier to remember this particular location. This method of URL and blog naming links both together and makes an impression on the surfers. This way there is a better chance of them coming back again and again.

It is a simple matter to change the URls of these sites. No need to delete and change the whole site. Just change the URL.

Doctor Whoniverse is unfinished. Nice start but unfinished is libel to scare off visitors. So unfinished is a big no, no. Put something up if just an introduction. This is much better than just unfinished.

Also ask for comments in the comment section. Encourage some interaction from the public. This will bring them back.

http://www.wikihow.com/Improve-Search-Engine-Ranking. The afore mentioned link may help you with Search Engine-Ranking. Never pay for this. You can do it yourself.

You might search on the Internet on how to encourage public interaction with your websites. Here is what I found:
Put in a rating system (can be found in the gadgets section for blogger)
Add some videos
Add puzzle's and games.
Encourage people to make comments in the comment section. 
The above are just suggestions on how to enrich your site.

Blue Dalek is off to a good start with his blogs. The blogs just need a little fine tuning and some polishing.

All websites and blogs should add new material from time to time, too. This keeps people coming back and adds interest. 

Remember you can also monetize your site if you so wish. Google Adsense and Amazon are available through blogger. Guess what they really work! (Just a suggestion)

Anyone else that would like me to give a critique please feel free to comment here. It can be any type of website or blog so long as it is not Adult only content or X rated. Also if feel free to make comments about any of the web sites that are mentioned in this blog. Just keep it GP please.

RE: New Video

I was looking for funny videos. I found this advertisement for Temptations. It is supposed to be a cat asking for treats by a specific name.
Evidentially Temptations is a company brand name for cat treats

I really do not know how funny it is.  However I did  find it clever. What do you think? Comments are welcome. Feel free to include your idea of funny cat videos in your comments if possible.

I do not know if the cat is trained to do this or if the filming is just opportunistic. Some people claim that a cat can be trained.

Here are some links  about training house cats:

How to Keep Cats Off of Tabletops -- powered by eHow.com

 There is even some things for sell through Amazon that claim that you can teach a cat tricks.

 I do not know abut this Cat Training in Ten Minutes. Sounds too good to be true. Yet maybe not. Who knows. If you try it out please let me know through the comment section. I am very interested to know what people think about this.

Hey you cannot beat the price on this. I wonder if it really does work. Teaching Your cat Simple tricks seems very reasonable in price.

Once again you are invited to tell us what you think of this product.

Got any suggestions or comments about this subject? Let us know. Also feel free to submit videos and pictures.

Look forward to hearing from you all.

RE: Time Lords, Jelly Babies and Scarves


The above is a link to a blogspot that the creator asked me to critique. This particualar entry is dedicated to that critique.

At first, the site Time Lords, Jelly Babies and Scarves seems slow to download.However, once started it really downloads relatively fast. Comment about download time is welcome here in the comment section.

The site is quite colorful. The background is black and the lettering is in Technicolor. There are also numerous graphics. For the number of graphics the site downloads quite fast. The graphics are on topic and give color and interest to the site. It would be nice if there was a link to where to order this material. Perhaps there is and I just missed it.

There is quite a bit of new information about Dr. Who products. The graphics illustrate the products. The site also gives in depth description about each new product also. It would be nice to have a link to where these products are sold. Perhaps they are sold on Amazon.

The new theme music for Dr. Who can be played or not. Just click on the graphic or embedded player included on the site. This is a good idea to give people a choice on whether or not to play the music. Some people get quite annoyed at the incessant playing of music on a site.

Included are several videos. I found one to be particularly entertaining, "Dr. Who Ringers." However this particular video can be a bit randy in some spots. May not be appropriate for the very young.Nothing too raunchy though.

Try out this site and let us know what you think of it. Comments about Time Lords, Jelly Babies and Scarves would be appreciated in the comment section of this blog entry. The creator of the site: Time Lords, Jelly Babies and Scarves wants input as to how to improve the site. So please go to the site then come back here and put your comments in the comment section of this entry.

Here are some site on the Net that help to understand how to critique web sites:

Important to remember:
Download time.
Is the site up to date?
Is the site dynamic? That means is there a chance for the public to interact with the site?
Is the site visually pleasing?
Is there a reason for the reader to come back?

Below are some things from Amazon that the reader may enjoy. If the reader orders any of these products please make a comment about the products that are ordered.

 This publication through Amazon covers information on how to do a critique. It covers art. Yet The Critique Handbook: The Student's Sourcebook and Survival Guide (2nd Edition) may have useful information on how to do critiques in general.
Click on graphic to the left side and go to site to order or see more information about this particular product.

The graphic to the left is a digital reader by Sony. This is included because it is a different reader from Kindle. This is a pocket edition However this is a higher price reader than the Kindle that can be ordered through this site.

Here's the Kindle. This particular one is wireless. Plus it it only $99.00. One of the most economical readers yet. If you order this particular reader through this site, please put in the Comments section of this site what you think of it.

Comments can be made in the comment section of any entry of this blog. Please list what the product is, when ordered and what the reader did or did not like about the specific product.

Also will critique any web site on this blog. Just put in the request here on the comment section. Critiques are made in order as soon as possible.

RE: A Question of Faith

I wonder if a lot of the so called followers of God are out of touch. The reason I say this is because the three great monotheistic religions are being questioned by an ever growing number of their people. There are accusations of hypocrisy, cruelty, etc.

Sometimes people may wonder if the religious leaders especially those that are prominent in their religion really believe in their faith or even practice their faith.  http://news.yahoo.com/video/tech-15749651/vampire-author-quits-the-church-21362209

RE: About Videos.

Not all blog space providers are alike. I am having some difficulty posting videos on my Blog space with Yahoo. The videos do not show up right. In addition, I am also having some difficulty adjusting the font.

Let see how the video for the new sci-fi series Haven works here. I took it from Hulu.com. I really enjoy this particular show.

By the way, I have been asked to review the web site or blog.

RE: Critique of Life, The Universe and Combom

Well I asked if anyone out there would like for me to critique their web site. Guess what someone took a bite out of WebByte. Someone asked me to do a critique of their blog. The name of the blog is Life, The Universe and Combom.  

First let me explain who or what is the subject of the web site critiqued here.  I am not going to spend a lot of time explaining who or what Dr. Who is. Suffice to say, Dr. Who is a series of Sci-Fi programs about a creature named or who calls himself Dr. Who. I say creature because Dr. Who is not human but humanoid. This explanation is just to let the public know what the subject of the critiqued site is. 

Want a more in depth description of the program Dr. Who? Then go to the Wikipedia page That describes the program.

The site downloads very fast. This is good because there is a good chance of maintaining interest of the public.
Studies indicate that if a web site takes more than five seconds to load down then the public is likely to surf to another site.

The photos, graphics, and video are especially crisp. That's really nice since this writer has an eye sight problem.

The site has a white background that is tastefully done with a few appropriate graphics.

There is a lot of information on  Life, The Universe and Combom. In addition, it is in blog format. So a revisit may be in order or maybe revisits in the plural sense. Guess what! there is actually a jigsaw puzzle on this site. It has some of the cast members of one rendition of Dr. Who. This adds to the entertainment factor. There is also included some interesting information about Dr. Who that may not be found anywhere else on the net. So in conclusion, this site is a must stop for all Dr. Who fans. People interested in classical TV sci-fi might drop by too. Then if the surfer just wants to be entertained definitely visit.


PS I noticed that the jigsaw puzzle changes every day on this blog. Great way to encourage revisits. 
* If anyone else would like me to critique their site please feel free to send a request through the comment section.  Please leave comments here as to what you think of the site that's mentioned in this critique.

Here is the Fourth Series of Dr. Who. Just for fun I included a keychain for the die hard Dr. Who fan. This keychain talks.  I also included a Doctor Who Lost In Time collection of Rare Epsodes.These are the only two videos that I included here.. the others are pretty expensive.  Just click on the graphic and orders can be completed.
