There are a million reasons that would put a big smile on my face.



Here's one of them!

Monica is the author of Turn-u-Off which is a personal blog that talks about her life in general. She'll also blog about fashionable women's attire and products, too. She has been on Blogger since August of 2007, and currently resides in Petaling Jaya, Malaysia.

Site Design and Layout

The header is cute which definitely fits the theme of a girl/woman's blog. The ads as well as other widgets on the page are nicely organized including the archived posts and links to other blogs. The white background makes the blog easier to read the content from. She's also one of the bloggers that uses emoticons on her entries which I've always found that it can give you a great idea for what she's feeling while typing out entries.

Navigation

All of her widgets are organized on the right side of the page where it is easy to find what you are looking for. She has links to those who comment on her site as well as recognition and appreciation for those who drop her a line the most. I like that she separates the comment and blog roll lists from the advertisements on her site.

Content

Although most of her blog entries are about her personal life, she has a way to make her readers relate to what she's posting about. Emoticons are often used as a way to relate to her, and she does very much post about girlish things, too. Inside the entries, she'll link to those who comment first on her blog, and she has a LinkWithIn widget to related posts, too.

Intangibles

Despite it being a blog geared towards girls and women, she does make herself very approachable to anyone. She very much appreciates your comments and visits, and will reward you for posting on her site often. You can follow her on Twitter as well as drop her an email as ways to contact her. And if you have an Entrecard account, she'll show her appreciation if you drop her EC a lot. She will visit your blog(if you have one) if you stop by, too.

Overall

The title couldn't be further from the truth with Monica. She'll frequently post very cute pictures of herself to go along with her talking about everyday experiences. The site is organized well and loads okay, too. She's an affectionate, friendly blogger to everyone. You can become friends with Monica, and then you'll see clearly that she won't turn-u-off!


Many thanks to World Blogging Entertainment (WBE) for reviewing Turn-u-Off!

Thanks to David. And thanks to the commenters (LJ, Maxi, Lainy) for sharing their comments here. Thanks for being kind to me. Smiley

I hope I can keep writing stuff that interest you guys and I'll try to push myself to do a little more than I think I can. *thinking hard until my brain is about to explode*
