A Blog Makeover: I'm looking for YOUR input!

This week, I was thrilled to learn that I was randomly selected in a giveaway hosted by Mission Mommy. The prize? A blog redesign compliments of Blog Makeovers by Tara!

I'm excited that this little blog may finally get a new, more professional look once Tara works her magic. But in the meantime, I could use a little help from you...

What features would make Macomb Money Savers easier for you to use? What categories do you use most (that could become part of a navigation bar)? What changes would you recommend in the layout? Have you found a blog layout or design worth emulating? If you're a loyal reader, what keeps you coming back? ANY comments, suggestions or thoughts would be greatly appreciated!


  1. i use the current store match ups the most. i also like how your link goes right to the area stores ad. thanks for all your help with the deals. maybe a link on top for the "best prices of the week" too? just a few thoughts.

  2. I agree with Jen. It's so refreshing to have the local deals posted with coupon matchups. You post about stores that no other blogger does, and that makes you unique. BTW, I think your blog looks very professional anyway, but congrats on the makeover.

  3. I'm happy with everything the way that it is. If I had to change anything, I would like to be able to read the comments and hit the back button and be able to keep reading. Currently I have to close out after reading a comment and get back on again. I don't know if it is just me, or if it happens to everyone.

    I really do like how you can click on whatever store you are looking for the most recent match ups.

  4. I have the same problem not being able to hit Back after reading comments, but instead of closing out the page, I use the drop down arrow next to the Back button to get me back one page. I don't have this problem on any other site. I also get an annoying message everytime I click to the comments, saying Internet Explorer can't open the page. I then have to refresh the page (sometimes more than once), to get anything besides Page Cannot be Displayed.
    The only suggestion I can think of would be to make the column with all the info wider, so we could read it faster without having to scroll down as often. It takes up less than half the page width now.
    Looking forward to any improvements. Thanks for asking for our input.
