What do you think of my new blog???
http://thecaptainpower.com/

Looks like I need to add a mobile plugin, because its not working on mobile, but on a laptop I think it look kickass...

Going to roll it out Jan 1st, but made some progress today..

Advice?

RE: What do you think of my new blog???
Honest truth?

It's not great. Doesn't look much like a blog to me.

The Amazon store promoting various random books at the bottom of the page isn't what I'd expect to see on a blog.

I don't see a navigation bars or buttons to get around the site.

I have no idea what the site is about when I land on it as you're site name and tag line don't do anything to tell me just "Capitainpower.com - God Bless America".

I also have no idea what I'm supposed to do when I land on the page, it should be obvious what you want your visitor to do as soon as they land.

The white and purple colour scheme is not very masculine.

Too many pictures of men.

Look at other popular blogs and follow their lead. What are they doing? Copy them.

I just took a quick look and have to agree with RF. All of the pictures of men and the purple gave it kind of a gay vibe. Drop the purple and add a darker red which should go good with the grey colors. Add in some pictures of women, clothes or something else besides men... and don't use male models pictures.

Male model pictures are gay.

You could go even darker than this red and have it look good.

What's the idea behind having a blog aggregator style site? What do you hope to achieve with that?

Is this a proven business model that you've seen work well elsewhere in multiple other areas of the web?

Those aggregator sites still require work. If you just let anything post to your site, it will look like shit with all the bad content. You need to go through the content to see if it is good quality. Maybe allow certain sites that are known for good quality to post automatically? I don't know if that is part of the software.

If you don't pull in quality, people won't come back. I know I wouldn't want to sift through shit in order to get to the good stuff.

Do people need their own blog in order to voice their opinion? You sound like you are getting offended when you asked for feedback. If that is the case, stop wasting our time asking for feedback.

Whos your target audience? Figure out who that is and change it accordingly. I had a look at your blog and felt like I wanted to leave the site quickly it really doesnt feel user friendly at all. Also "god bless america" you have already lost any potential overseas customers.
