Community Pool

Where bloggers come together to give each other feedback and advice.

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 and guidelines 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, as well as for not starting numerous threads in a single Pool.
  • 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. Also note that including multiple links in your comment might automatically put it in the moderation queue, which will delay its publication.
  • 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. Hello everyone, I have started a series titled Look Behind the Reflection. I just posted the second part two days ago. It is about the way how women are perceived where I come from affected my life. I would really appreciate it if you would check out my blog and give me feedback. Here is the link to my latest post:

    Thank you in advance, and good luck in your blogging.

    1. Great ideas! The link wasn’t working, but I found it through your front page. Your site looks great too! I made sure to subscribe before I left.

    1. I commented in your blog. But here I will say that I would have loved to have read even more detailed answers to the first set of questions in your tag. Tags are fun in that they really let you share a lot about yourself. Some of your answers to the earliest questions were a little short.

      Your photos and descriptions of your style were very nice. I know Goth style has been around for a while, but I never fully understood what is the inspiration for it. If ever you feel inclined to write about that, I’d be interested in learning more.

  2. Hello Everyone! I have been blogging for a couple of weeks now and it has been such a joy for me. I never thought that writing could give me such solace. But it has and I want to see where I will go from here. Please give a follow or even just feedback on the posts I’ve written. Hope you all enjoy reading them as much as I enjoy writing them!

  3. Hello everyone, I’m Sylvia. I’m hoping I could get some insight and feedback on some of the things I’m trying on my page. Mine is a lifestyle blog focusing on sharing educational, inspirational and funny moments in life. Recently i tried to add haiku attempts but one of my readers said nooooo. . it didnt seem like the positive sylvia they knew and loved. . . so i tabled that. I’ve been experimenting with different ways to illustrate for my stories. I wonder if you could give feedback on that. . . and anything else that would help my page
