Have you just published a new post and are dying for some feedback? Are you redesigning your blog and could use some layout or design advice from your more seasoned peers?

The Community Pool is for peer feedback and advice. Looking for more specific information? Check out some of these resources:

Tap into the wisdom of The Daily Post blogging community and leave your question here in the comments. Others can then click through and offer input either on your site, or in the comments here (feel free to indicate which you’d prefer).

Looking for free, self-guided courses to help you get started with your blog (or revive a dormant one)? Check out our current offerings at Blogging U.

To help us make the Community Pool a productive space for discussion, here are some tips you might find useful:

  • While you’re not required to, we encourage everyone who requests feedback to also reply to at least one or two other bloggers who need some help. Spread the love!
  • The Community Pool comments section can get quite big — and starting duplicate threads doesn’t help. Thanks for not posting the same question more than once!
  • If you’re looking for quality feedback, be as specific as you can. Questions about a particular post tend to draw more comments than ones about entire blogs. Questions about specific design elements are more likely to be answered than ones asking for general layout advice.
  • We discourage leaving links without a more substantive message or question. These are often overlooked by other bloggers, and we frequently remove them to make the comment reading experience smoother.
  • Please keep all comments civil and constructive. The idea is to have fun — it’s a pool, after all!
  • To keep from losing your place in the comment thread while you visit others’ blogs, right-click on a link to open it in a new tab or window.
  • If you haven’t looked at our Commenting Guidelines in a while, now might be a good time.
  • No running on the deck.

    1. You’re writing is really sketching a scene, I can really imagine how the surroundings of your story look, hear and smell. It’s great! I would love to read some more of you


  1. Pool party! I’ve been a blogger since the beginning of summer, so I’m still learning as I’m sure many of us are. The posts I have written so far can be categorized as lifestyle and positivity—at least that’s what I’m aiming for. Feel free to take a look at my blog, send feedback, and even a follow if you’re feeling extra engaged! Thanks, can’t wait to be introduced to all the other unique sites out there. 🙂


  2. I need your help! I am writing a novel which will be something that is very important to me. I have included what I would like it to be about. I’m not looking for people who are wanting to copy my idea and make their own, but for people to read this post and tell me what I can add to make it an amazing story that would interest you. I need help brainstorming ideas, but would also like your opinion on my story as a whole. Thanks in advance!


  3. Hi there. I have recently started writing and am not 100% sure yet of what direction I should take my blog. I would appreciate some tips/comments from the more seasoned guys, thanks.


  4. Hi Everyone! I started blogging at the beginning of this year and so far I’m averaging at about 50-100 views per post, this is mainly down to posting on my Facebook and Twitter accounts. Pretty much all traffic comes from my own social media, just wondering whether the topics and content reach a wider audience. It’d be great if you could comment your thoughts! Thanks in advance x
