Becca's Buzz reviewed

BeccaGirl (as she calls herself) blogs at "BeccA's Buzz". There are a few questions I would like to ask her. Like why she added another blogspot in the url and why the 'A' in the title is capitalized. Her 'profile' doesn't tell me much about herself. I guess she prefers to remain anon like a lot of other bloggers.

It's a personal blogspot blog. I like the fact that she has customized the template a bit, including a banner with pictures of herself. The Google search looks a bit odd. It might look better if it''s the same colour as the background (grey) and shorten the site name

I was going through her old posts and she has been blogging for quite sometime now (since Aug. 2005). Like me, she has definitely been blogging a lot more now and I can guess the reason. ;-) Her blog's PR is still 0 and maybe joining some link exchanges might help. I hope this review does.

Hey Adam!!!
Thank you so much for taking your time to review my blog, it's much appreciated. I am always open to constructive criticism as well as compliments, when either one are due, of course.
I would love to answer your questions!
1. The reason I added the additional blogspot in the url is because I had no idea what I was doing back then :) All I knew was that the url I was trying to get (I at least knew to keep it simple) was taken. I kept trying different combinations until something went through, and beccagirlblogspot.blogspot dot com was it!
2. The 'A' in BeccA is capitalized simply for character. It began as a typo, but I thought is was cute.
3. The link to my profile isn't working on your post.
4. My profile doesn't have much info, true. Sorry, I just haven't gone back and done much to it. Maybe I should....
5. Thank you for noticing I've customized the template some. I'm still learning, but quickly finding that I'd like to move to a different place to do my blogging. Something with more choices, a girl loves having lots of choices!!
6. I'm not terribly fond of the Google search either. I worked with it some, but I discovered it wouldn't allow me to shorten the url. It had to be exactly the link or it wouldn't work. See, that extra 'blogspot' is making it too long....curses.
7. I didn't get blogging at first. I just thought, what in the world am I going to talk about? Then the ideas suddenly began to come to me. A friend who introduced it all to me, suggested I spend some time browsing other peoples' blogs and commenting. This is great advice. I was able to see that people blog on lots and lots of subjects and I quickly found it easier to come up with my own posts. I'm still not where I want to be, considering how much I am into crafts, I have yet to begin incorporating that side of me into my blog. Perhaps that aspect will spawn it's own blog!? Stay tuned for that one.
8. My PR is interesting right now. I've been 0 or N/A from the beginning and now all of a sudden, on PPP it shows a Google PR of 4! I have no idea how long it will last or it it's a mistake or what, but I'm reaping the bennies!
Thanks again for doing my review, I really appreciate it! If you wouldn't mind fixing my profile link to:
Thanks, Adam!!!

Thanks for helping me fix that Google search - THAT REALLY BUGGED ME!!
Now it's fixed. I didn't know how to do that until you said that, and I thought, hmmmm....
a blog about whatnots = free
a fellow blogger reviewing your blog = great linkbacks
a fellow blogger giving helpful hints on improving your blog = priceless!
