Comparing the Design and usability of Blogs..

” The moment you launch a website you are a publisher.The moment you begin a blog, send an email, participate in social media,build a widget,even show up in a search engine result…you’re a publisher”

Kristina Halvorson/author.Content Strategy for the Webb

My friends loves to write a blogs and published it online, i have heard people advertise their blog on t.v or radio,in my curiuosity i look the definition of terms using “Wikepedia”  BLOG– is a discussion or informational site published on the World Wide Web and consisting of discrete entries (“posts”) typically displayed in reverse chronological order (the most recent post appears first). Until 2009 blogs were usually the work of a single individual, occasionally of a small group, and often covered a single subject. More recently “multi-author blogs” (MABs) have developed, with posts written by large numbers of authors and professionally edited

It’s indeed a big challenge for the compare these two blogs since both of them represents their personalities and uniqueness, as a publisher of a blog i should consider not just the content but the strategy on how i will present my work online.

The publisher of this blog used inappropriate designs and graphics, he used colours not appealing to the viewer as much i would like to read his article i was distracted..the publisher failed to have a usability,length and type of posts,multimodality,intergration with social media to sum up the author failed in creating a message of architecture.

The publisher brough a friendly approach on the design of her blog she used light colours, the statement speaks her personality as a viewer i got interested in reading her blog.She brings clear messages,as i reader i can give a good recommendation of this blog to my fellow friends such a good piece to read, viewers somehow connect to her stories and experiences in life.
