Stern Thoughts is a humorous blog that could best be described as somewhat warped to the vanilla crowd. It’s written by a gent in his 40’s who practices law and apparently has a hobby of writing comical thoughts online. The blog is quite new in its second month but the activity and content is there, it could possibly be one of those blogs that sticks around for the long haul.
This blog is basically updated daily with funny stories or random thoughts from the author. The content of this blog will draw you in and you’ll find yourself reading more than you had original came for. One may even be hitting the next page button in no time. It’s easy to read and in each entry my face has made at least a slight smirk based on the amusing and sometimes ridiculous content of the entries. An entry that I found particularly enjoyable was “The Shame of it“.
This is a good blog that is seriously suffering from lack of design. That’s “OK” though as it’s new and after these suggestions should be on way to being a great blog. I’m suggesting a completely new theme. There are thousands of free ones to choose from and customize before spending cash on a professional design. The header says little about the blog and the color makes it hard to read.
Furthermore, an appropriate graphic for each update would do wonders to draw readers in. Also if the posts were made into snippets where the reader can click “read more” it would better help organize the quality content. On the topic of organization, some categorization would be nice to help readers in the future find posts of a particular nature.
This blog gets a 3.7/5, loses most of its points for the layout and readability.
