If you are looking for some quality advice from the psychology field, then look no further. Here at Psychlinks Blog take an opportunity to meet Dr. David Baxter, a psychologist located in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Dr. Baxter works in private practice and runs a network of sites in the Psychiatric and Mental Health field, one of them being the Psychlinks Blog. This blog is a very interesting one, with such a diverse amount of information that you will be sure to spend a great deal of time there. The purpose of the blog is to be an occasional commentary on psychology, psychiatry, mental illness, mental health, relationships, parenting, the internet, and life of an Ottawa psychologist. You can check out any of his most recent posts to see the eclectic mix of this blog. Just a few of the recent ones include DMOZ reaches a new low, Grief: How long will it take?, The sad state of Canada’s health care system: A rant, and General psychology: bad logic, bad science, and sensationalism.
The blog is fairly straightforward with a standard layout and easy to navigate design. The posts are left marginalized and the blog contains a right sided navigation bar. In the right you will find a host of medical and mental health related links including a few directories of mental health resources, DMOZ resources, Happy Mind – Happy Mood, Langa blog, Psychology forums, and PyschLinks Network just to name a few. You will also find a very comprehensive list of categories here on just about any topic in psychology, and then some. Check out Dr. Baxter’s book reviews, parenting, mental disorders, life, medicine, grief, general psychology, technology, therapy and therapists, and site reviews.
I am going with a 3.4 for this one. I found the layout very appealing and easy on the eye, and there was enough advertising to monetize the blog without overwhelming it. The blog scores well for uniqueness as well, it is a dedicated niche with a lot of interesting extras that do not distract from the purpose of the blog. The content was spectacularly written, but obviously the content is coming from one that is well-versed in the field. I would suggest that if possible to increase the content a bit in terms of activity. Overall, I think it’s a very well done blog that I am certain serves its readers well. I’m also sure they wish it was updated more often as well!
