Making improvements {Need Feedback!}

By Friday, May 6, 2011 8 No tags Permalink 0

There’s so much going on at our household! As you might know Tyler, the awesome husband of mine, is a web designer/web manager/media guru (and the list is practically endless) which means he works from home 🙂 which brings us many hours of brainstorming into new adventures. There are a few projects we are working on together that involve mommies, blogs, and mommy bloggers and giveaways and tons of cool stuff!!

Right now Tyler is working into coding the design of said project…and it is awesome!! Just wait and see!!

I am also looking into making new improvements to From PDX with Love and here’s where I need your help!!


What do you think of the overall design of From PDX with Love?
Do you find it easy to use? Is it a bit too much? Too cramped? Too slow? Just fine? You Love it?!

What other features would you like to see @ From PDX with Love?
I would love to add recipes and crafts!

What current features do you like?
Do you like the use of photography? The giveaways?



I have also been thinking on growing the From PDX with Love Team!! If you would like to become part of our team shoot me an email sofia(at)frompdxwithlove(dot)com!!

I am thinking on expanding towards coupons, crafts, pets, recipes. Maybe you have a better idea, share it with us! We would love to welcome you into our little family!!

    Hello! I like the layout. If you go for recipes and you are using definately go for a plugin like hrecipe that I use. I have not tried them all but there were 3 I think. I found it very difficult to get the recipe to line up properly.

    I will be emailing you soon. Hope all is well with your family.

      How are you guys feeling today?

    I love From PDX with Love! The design is nice. I like how all the giveaways are listed on the side for easy access. I also like the recent blogs highlight box at the top with a picture and a small taste of the full blog story. I think the rest is organized nicely, but it is a little bit busy. It was hard for me to find certain posts at first, but it might have been that I just wasn’t used to the layout. Now that I’ve been on the site more I navigate easily.

    I think it’s great that you are expanding! Recipes would be awesome! I’m always looking online for easy, fast, healthy recipes and it’s great to know that someone tried it out and it worked for them. Crafts are also a great idea, though I’m not really the crafty type. If it looks easy enough, I’ll sometimes give it a try. lol.

    I love the use of photography and giveaways! I love taking photos…and looking at them! I think they add so much to a blog post! I wish I could join your team, but I’m not sure that I would have anything to offer…plus I’m not quite a mommy yet (just got married last year and I’m loving just being an aunt to my nieces and nephews!). 🙂

    Hope this is a little bit helpful!

      First off, thanks so much for your kind comments! I am actually thinking of changing the design and layout again…I tend to get bored sometimes, hehehe! But if we do expand we’re going to need a more user friendly design!

      Oh silly you! We can always figure something out for you 😉

    Also – two things I just thought about.
    1. It would be great if you didn’t have to keep entering your name, e-mail address, and website once you have already commented once. I have been on sites where once I do comment, it automatically fills that stuff in again.
    2. When you hit “Newer Comments” at the end of a blog posts it takes you to the “Older Comments”.

    -Christa 🙂

      Hmm I’ll have to ask my husband to fix this one…he’s the brains behind the code!

    I love your new layout vs the old one that you used to use. It works much faster on my computer.

    I like that you list your giveaways in one place.

    I would totally read recipe posts. Maybe you could do reviews on family board games or movies.
