I appreciate the feedback I got on my blog’s design. As a design student, I understand the value of affordances and how important of a role it plays in user experience.
The main feedback I got was talking about my media presence in my blog. Because music is something that’s so unique to everyone, I don’t really think media is something I require. Rather, I think people should discover my music suggestions because they’re out looking for music and was recommended, not because they happened to stumble across it. We don’t actually care about content. We only care about what content can do for us.
That being said, if I want to relate to a more musical audience, than I need to be more open about my music side. I do believe that music is a very personal thing, and that is why most my playlists are privated. But based on Lauren’s feedback, I have decided to link my Spotify account and open up some playlists that make me unique as a music listener.
Although I didn’t get much feedback on the design aspect of my blog, I have started planning for visual changes, with the first step to become less text-centric and include more imagery.
