Blessed with old-fashioned neighbors who take the time to care about each other, I asked one of them to indulge me and review my blog. She agreed. However, as soon as I asked her, she scurried home to look at my blog and be prepared. My oldest son suggested that only way to find a true first-time reader is to go to the library and ask some guy on a computer to load your blog.
Through this assignment, I was able to determine what my neighbor found attractive about my blog and what she thought should change. Also, I was able to observe how much time she spent reading a post or glancing through it and which links she clicked on to read additional posts.
The greatest advantage in this assignment for me came in the second part where we ask the reader to answer the questions posed by Darren Rowse.
