Help! I earnestly request that my subscribers and readers click this link
and give me feedback, suggestions, corrections, ideas for what's missing, and any other critique you'd like to contribute to my new gallery site-in-progress. Since I am designing the site with iweb and publishing it on .mac, I particularly want to know how it works on PC platforms and on browsers other than Firefox. I won't switch my public domain, www.susiemonday.com until I've done a bit more work, but it's ready for some outside eyes.
There is still an enormous amount to do to get the site where I want it to be, but with this much done and published, I feel like I have met my Artist Breakthrough Program goal of developing the site by April 1. With your help, I can take the next steps to fatten it out with more content, better edited photos, and additional pages during the next 3 weeks leading up to my sale at Fiesta Arts Fair, April 19-20.
A few specific questions:
Do the live hyperLINKS need to be a more distinct color?
Is it too weird to have the tense go from third to first person (home page to gallery pages)? And if so, which should it be ?
Should I have a more formal bio/resume page?
Should I have more or fewer pictures on each of the galleries? Should I subdivide more or combine them? Do I include prices? Size? Media? More description for each photo on the gallery page and then NOT include it on the slideshow?
What other pages do you think I should include?
Does the design and format look enough like my blog to have a consistent style? Any suggestions on visual "branding"?
Any other ideas? Really, I need them. If you don't want to leave a personal comment, email me by sending a message to firstname.lastname@example.org (you do have my new email, right?).
