Hi everyone!

As you may have noticed, I've been messing around with the format of the site in the last couple of days. I removed the banner, added in some new pages, and changed the colors around a little. I left some questions below for you to answer. Please let me know of what you think of the changes and any other problems you may be having, whether it be load time of the site or a broken link here or there. Any help is greatly appreciated!
  1. Do you like the layout of the site? If no, please explain.
  2. Is it easy to navigate?
  3. Do you like the content that is blogged? If no, please explain.




  1. I sort of miss the colorful banner.

    I like the content I've been seeing (and writing - I'm also the LEGO Model of the Day guy who posts here occasionally), but I've found the structure of the site recently to be a bit hazy. Is Richard (Brick Street) still involved? If he isn't, is someone else "in charge" now? How/when did some of the newer features (advertisements, the domain name, inspiration of the day) come about?

  2. I do too, I put it back up. :)

    Recently, I've taken over a lot of the duties of running the site and making sure there's some sort of new content each day. Richard has been absent lately, though I don't really know why. I've emailed him, but I'm still waiting for a reply back from him.

    I put up a lot of the new features that you mentioned back around November.

    I really apologize about the "hazy" look to things. I'm trying to find a suitable look to the site, but I'm just not sure how to go about it. I'll stick with one and see how it goes for awhile.

    Thanks for leaving a comment, I really appreciate it!

  3. Hi Chris,

    Great content. Layout is fine, but the logo on top could be a bit smaller I think. I'd say: keep up the good work!



  4. Hey, thanks! I agree about the logo, maybe that's it! I'll see what I can do!

  5. 1. (Q) Do you like the layout of the site? If no, please explain.
    (A) I like it, its very nice and i like the colors and such. However, I agree about the large logo, and i also think that you should show a picture of cafe corner, as it does say "Inspired by Cafe Corner".
    2. (Q) Is it easy to navigate?
    (A) It is, but i think first time visitors may have to read some of the blog before noticing the page tabs (Home, About, ect.)
    3. (Q) Do you like the content that is blogged? If no, please explain.
    (A) I like it, of course, but i would say that the inspiration of the day posts should have their own page. Not too incredibly important, but it would help.

  6. I fixed the logo and added an "Inspiration of the Day" page for your convenience.

    Hope you like it!

  7. I like the new setup and it is easy to navigate.

    The content is great. I enjoy reading your blog and find the inspiration of the day as a great idea.

    Your blog was an inspiration for me to start one for the Lego fire community called FireBricks.

    Keep up the great work!

  8. I'm a casual reader who reads from RSS feeds, so I only get content (unless I click through.)
    I do like the new design though - nice and clean compared to what I remember from previously. The content is nice; I like the assortment of architectural and building styles posted.
    Keep it up!

  9. Thanks again for your comments everyone. I took a lot of things into consideration (and implemented a few mentioned here as well.) I'm happy to hear you are satisfied with the content posted!
