Librarian Science blog: Cute animals, conservation, library stuff
My first-ever attempt at a blog, and I'm feeling self-conscious about it. I don't know if this is even worth posting to projects, but I've been doing it for a week or so and have posted a lot of things that I find interesting. If you have any interest in libraries, or zoos, or science in general, take a look and pretty pretty please give me some feedback.

I voted for the project, since I like science and book stuff. You might consider adding more graphics, pictures etc.

Woo! Most of the people that looked at it didn't comment/vote for it though. That's totally cool, of course, but some constructive criticism as to why you clicked on it (when it's clearly described at face value, I think) but didn't like it would be fantastic. Anyone?

I clicked and I liked the idea - it's always really nice to see a thoughtful blog, and I like animals and books. The content just wasn't close enough in line with my interests for me to subscribe or bookmark. I still might visit once in a while though.

Lots of pictures are good! You might also want to fiddle around with customizing the template a little more too (green links, a slightly larger font size, things like that) to help signal that this isn't just an ordinary WordPress's the booknerd blog!

I would also put your sub-title ("Cute animals, conservation, library stuff") in the header of the blog below the main title somehow. "Librarian Science" is a little serious-sounding for a blog of interests, so putting in the sub-title could help convey what it's about.

Thank you! Those are great suggestions and I've implemented some of them. Also, I got some pictures of baby bighorn sheep and put them up for added cuteness.
