Simplicity Review

By glblguy Logo

Blogging has turned out to be much more than I thought it was going to be. One of the things I have enjoyed most is meeting people I would have never met otherwise. This includes my fellow M-Network bloggers, bloggers in the MBN Forums, and my favoriate blogging forum, the Authority Blogger Forum. It was there I met Skellie of

The first post from her that I saw was her offer on the Authority Blogger Forum to guest post on member’s blogs. In hindsight I should have jumped all over this offer, but I didn’t. I did eventually send her an email, but I’m sure her list is huge by now.

Skellie blogs about blogging, and specifically creating great content. There are literally thousands blogging blogs out on the internet. Skellie however has managed to standout amoungst the crowd. She is active on the Authority Blogger Forum and is always willing to lend her advice and perspective to peoples inquiries or thoughts.

Her blog is in my opinion top notch. I am a big fan of simplicity and so is Skellie. Her blog is clean, very well written and uses some unique techniques to present her content (see her use of images for her featured posts).

Skellie has been recognized in the blogging community and was a guest poster on Darren Rowse’s Pro-Blogger website. She was also invited to be a contributing blogger on Daily Blog Tips.

Skellie, has offered her services via email to review and comment on sites to help simplify them. She is calling this a “Simplicity Review”. Not being one to make the same mistake twice, I immediately sent her email requesting a review. She replied that evening via email with a few suggestions, and even offered a cleaner revised logo for me (which you can see in the header). I immediately incorporated her changes, and sure enough it looks better.

I just wanted to take the time to thank Skellie for offering her services and expecting nothing in return. If you are a blogger, visit her blog and subscribe to her RSS feed, I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Thanks Skellie for your insight, and the logo rocks!

    Thanks, I just send her an email. I love how clean that site looks.

    It was all a pleasure, glblguy :). I really appreciate all your kind words!

    My guest-posting plate is very full at the moment but I definitely haven’t forgotten GLBL. It’s a little harder for me to come up with ideas in areas I don’t have experience in (personal finance is one of them) but I do still think about it. Rest assured you’ll receive my submission one day not too far off :).

    Thanks again glblguy. You’re welcome to call on me for advice, help or a chat any time.

    No problem at all, I figured your plate was full. If you get time it would be an honor, if not I fully understand. Just appreciate the advice you have given me. take care!

    I got the review from Skellie and it was very comprehensive. Definitely good suggestions, so I implemented them (most anyway). I sent her a follow up email to discuss some detail. I hope she has the time to answer.

    I noticed you made some changes, they look good. I wondered if they were a result of a “Skellie Review” or not :-)

  7. Pinyo Says:

    Yes, most changes were done based on her recommendation.
