A Kona Hawaii Scuba Diver

Blog Being Reviewed: A Koan Hawaii Scuba Diver

At First Glance: My first thought honestly was "Huh, I think I like it"

Template/Design: Ok, I'm not feeling particularly witty today - in fact, there may be no humor in this review at all. I'm loving the header, I love the blog, I even love the background - but not all together. I think the warm colors of the blogs, along with the colors of the font, combined with the background color simply don't go well together. If you are going to do a bright blue background then the blog colors should match that in some way. It goes from bright to bland depending on where you are looking. The sidebar is "okay", it's long but it goes okay. I don't mind the books from Amazon so much because they go with the blog. I'm just so blah today, I can't seem to come up with any good analogies or anything, but to say it's "okay".

Content: The pictures are awesome and there are a ton of them. They really make the blog. I don't think I need to mention that this blog is all about what the title suggests - scuba diving. The posts though are a bit like me today, kind of blah. They tell of interesting things, without much of a personality behind it. I think there is a huge potential in this blog, but the writer needs to open up a big more, try some humor, invoke some sort of "something" to really get it going. I just felt like I was reading a lot of the things over and over again.

What is the first thing I would change about this blog? I would have to go with the background mixed with the blog colors. Although again, you get drawn in, once you really start looking at it, it just doesn't match well together. There is always something that makes you say "hmmm".

What is the best feature of this blog? The pictures for sure! Wow, there are some great ones! You may want to consider doing a photo blog with shorter inserts rather than a standard blog template. I think that is where your readership would really lie.

Rating: 6 out of 10 - I agree with my own previous statement (shocker huh) that a photo blog would enhance the pictures more while still giving you an area to write if you so choose.
