Review: The Transformation of America in the 21st Century

Blog Reviewed: The Transformation of America in the 21st Century

Graphics - Easy on the eye, the clean layout uses colors to go with the subject matter. No ads is a relief, so if the blogger decides on some, we suggest he keep them low key. The absence of pictorial elements seems deliberate.

Content - Bulletins and features on US and overseas political developments, posted for 'entertainment'. Topics could be for conversation over a drink, but they're not presented this way.

Style - American news and feature writing you can get in any newspaper or news site/channel, without the visual extras or variety.

Recommend - Try a header size about an inch bigger. Speak more in the first person. If entertainment is the object, after every news item try and add some opinions that may be aggressive, light, sarcastic or humorous. Show audience response for a more interactive feel.

This is to try and even out on the 'heaviness' of the topics chosen. This blog wears such a long face, and people go online to lighten up after the day's battles. For instance, Fox News would appeal to a wider audience than CNN because of their more frequent fillers on topics such as the latest in skin care, pet care and minute by minute developments on who gets Anna Nicole Smith's loot.

What about photos, political cartoons, videos and other items you can post and the audience can send in?

Rating: 7.5
