Doctor Blog #1 - get a free checkup for your blog layout

November 30, 2015

get tips to improve your blog layout

With Thanksgiving behind us and Christmas in front of us, it's still the season of giving. Today is the last day of the 50% Thanksgiving discount in my Etsy shops The Dutch Lady Designs and Dutch Lady Digi Design, so if you are in need of some creative clipart or a blog makeover, be sure to check out last week's post that will tell you how to get the discount!

But I have been playing with another idea lately to help out my readers with their blogs. That ultimately resulted in the idea of creating the Doctor Blog post series, and today's post is the first part in that series.


The whole point of this new series is to help you out if you have specific questions about your blog layout or when you just want some advice on how to improve your blog look even more.

All you have to do to get some free advice is to leave a comment below with a link to your blog if you want some overall tips on how to improve your blog's layout even more. And if you have a specific questions about your layout, please write it down in your comment as well.


I will do my best to answer your questions and of course to give you some tips to improve the look of your blog. Questions that you might ask are: what do you think about the font styles on my blog? What do you think about the colors? Do you think the gadgets in my sidebar are serving me? Do you think my menu bar is indexed clearly for my readers? Just basic layout questions.

And if you don't have a specific question, but still would like someone else to take a look at your blog and give some improvement tips, just leave the link to your blog.


Please keep in mind that while I know quite a bit about blog layouts by now, some of my tips will hold a personal opinion as well. And if you think to yourself: what a bunch of crap, I still love my colorful, busy blog, then don't take my word for it ;-) 

Also understand that I cannot go into coding questions and requests to change coding or design for you. This blog posts series is just to give you free tips on how to improve your blog layout. But you will have to act on the tips yourself if you wish to.


The comment section will stay open for a week, till Monday, December 7. If you leave your question/blog link in that week I will comment back on it with my tips. 

Next week I will put a comment in the comment thread when I am closing the post. But don't worry if you bump into this posts too late. I will probably be doing the Doctor Blog posts once a month or so. So if you don't want to miss out on them, subscribe via Bloglovin or via email (see sidebar).

Well, let's see if anyone has a questions for the doctor! Leave your comments and questions below and please don't forget to add the link to your blog so I can take a look!
