What comes into your mind when you hear the word "random"? Perhaps you'll think about something happy-go-lucky, something easy-going or something having no definite outcome. Well, trust me on this one. . . The authors over at Random Encounters of We are not your regular bloggers. They're so fond of the word, they named their blogs after it! See Random Games and Random SuperHeroes.

They have been blogging since last year and i have to tell you, they have come a long way. They earned a respectable PR 4 and Alexa Rank of 695,365 as of now. And guess what? Theyre not just going to stop there. Theyre employing contests, exchanges, and well, paid posts which i think are just some of the recipe for their success.

On the other side of the coin, i have some notable contructive criticisms for this blog. The colors used is not that convenient for the eyes especially when its glaring; green background with black for fonts is not very efficient. Furthermore, there is no information about the author page. The readers need to have a glimpse of the author's interests and background to be able to relate and sympathize with the author. And finally, this is not a prime requirement but it would help if the authors would make/construct an image or symbol will represent their niche. Since they have "random" as their niche, a stylishly designed "R" would do the trick. This may be used in the favicon and the technorati profile pic for better "branding" of their blogs. Think about the check mark of nike.

That's it! I hope you learned a thing or two from the blog featured today. Just remember to always Feed Your Greed!

    Thanks for the review. Very nicely done. I used to love our template but lately I have been hating on it, so I'm trying to talk my husband into designing me a new one. Thanks for all your comments, I look forward to making some changes!
