I have recently developed a very basic blog about fundamentals of varoius programming languages & plugins.Please give suggestion.I am afraid about its "first look" as i concentrated more on the material than the UI...

slow loading...I ran three other sites at same time, all I got from yours was the title. And I use an older browser.

Thanks SeattleMicah :)

I am not very much into blogs...you know.My aim for the blog is to provide very basic entry level documentation that may help kick start programmers who are very new in the seen.

I don't want much of a visual effects though just a good clean representation of the workflow.

Please let me know what are the essential ad-dons that i need to put in my blog.

Thanks again for your response

Hi Sayannayas.

I think the video at the end is a nice touch but it would be more helpful if you did the following:

1.) People need to see exactly what you are doing and the size of the video is small. It's true they could click on the "fullscreen" button but it would help if it was already big.
2.) I don't hear any sound and since you are showing people how to create their first PHP document, it would help to have some sound. If you don't have the ability to add sound, put words on the screen for people to read so they at least know what to look out for while going through the process.

As you continue on with your blog development, try to make your posts similar to a classroom where you list the tutorials as lessons:

Lesson 1: PHP Setup using Dreamweaver 6 & Wamp server
Lesson 2: How to do a redirect using PHP
Lesson 3: How to write a function, etc.

This method will give newbies a chance to know what lesson they should read first.

The last thing is to check your spelling, punctuation, and grammar (errors are in quotes):

...hugely popular because of its ease of use & "of" course it being absolutely free.

...Dreamweaver CSS5 should be Dreamweaver CS5

NB: ...you may have to provide "your" email id

The unorder lists seem to be out of order:

ii) You should see...
c) Start Dreamweaver - where is a) and b)?

III) ...know the short key- cntrl+s - should be ctrl+s

There are some other errors but I'll let you handle them.

I hope this helps. Good luck with the completion of your site.

I do appreciate your time & effort for putting your thoughts together & listing it down to points.

To be honest i never expected one to be auditing my site at grammar level..:p and you are absolutely correct.I will certainly try to be more structured in my next presentations.

Thanks a lot,considering that nowadays people don't want to spent more than 2 minutes on a particular thread or site.
