The storyteller asks for a review
Just started this blog where I write short-stories; all episodic in nature and hence, the name Story in pieces.
I have recently started writing stories and custom URL and wordpress are also new to me. Being said that, further improvement is very much required and here, my dear friends I ask for a review of my blog.
And please do not provide feedback on the site design and widgets only (which is an important part of the review, anyway), but please also let me know your feedback on the content and improvement area, thereon.
And yes, I am more interested in knwoing improvement areas, however praising does not hurt me as well
Thanks in advance...

Neat site, very well designed and categorized. at first glance it gives the look of a professionally managed site. Though content is less in the beginning, it is absorbing, gripping, with unique twists in the tales. Great acumen of a thriller series writer.
Thanks P. I am trying to improve on the content part as fast as I can.
Thanks a lot for taking out time and providing your feedback
As a lazy writer i have great respect for real writers, A professional site with great content. I felt that u may give bit more space in the header, the end of the logo is almost touching the top border. an extra pixel could make it more readable.
Thanks Gopan. Trying to figure out how to change it. Will do it
Dashing appearence of web.. need little bit of work over content nd backdrop of ur blog!!
Damn gud knowledge of various topics nd superb elaboration, perfect use of relevant things related to d content..
Keep on rolling dude :)
Could you elaborate "need little bit of work over content nd backdrop of ur blog!!"
It will be helpful.
Just went through the blog and a couple of stories. I liked the design and how user friendly your blog is. It really invites people to easily browse through it, select the story they want to read and then continue with it.
The way stories have been formatted and bifurcated in various episodes is quite nice. Every part is kept short and sweet which increases readability. However, I feel that there is a need of better editing and grammatical errors need to be fixed.
e.g. the use of "fade up" instead of "fed up" and then "spciety" instead of "society"
Try to get spellings and grammar checked on word or your writing software before you publish it. Apart from that I loved the story telling and definitely wanna read more. All the best!! :)
Thanks Kimi. WIll certainly look at those points. Thanks for pointing that out.
Nice blog you have started. The design is simple and elegant. the detectives story is good , you seem to have a natural ability at story telling.
You need to work a bit on your grammar and spelling. In the story the missing dead body at the end of part 3 when i click on the link - concluding part it again re-directs me to the same article (i.e part 3 ) instead of taking me to the last part. Please check this.
Apart from this your blog is really good.
Keep writing and good luck :)
Thanks a lot Ashwani. Will surely take care of grammar and spelling. And thanks a ton for the link thing. Corrected it now.
So.. finally am here
A great story blog you have there. I like the fact that the stories are episodic in nature that keeps the reader hooked for more, its actually a tough job to do but you have managed it wonderfully well, so kudos to you for that! The blog has a neat layout with easy navigability not cluttered with useless widgets.
Some things that I can point out are-
- The title in the header, looks a bit cramped as of now. Open it up a little, utilize the space, I think it will look nice.
- In the diary story - third part, the following link to the next part isnt working. Take care that you dont end up with dead links as that might really put a reader off, as ashwini has pointed out too.
Apart from that, I dont think there is much that I have to say here. You are a wonderful story teller with some interesting and intriguing stories to tell and I wish you keep doing that for long! All the best! :)
Read your last few posts. But I'm unable to form a definite conclusion. For the post "Criminals of motherhood, I do not agree with handing over the criminals to the mob. We must be civilised as much we are bloglised. In the post about the issue with indiblogger "how much are you bloglized", i doubt those who are not in indiblogger will find some difficulty in understanding. Your humorous posts like how to irritate your boss are really nice.
