Review at Blog Advance
Blog Advance is a site where you can request that your blog be reviewed. It may not be for everyone and I know it's tough to take criticism sometimes (for me, all the time) but it does have some positives in that it may induce you to look at your site differently and objectively depending on what your goal with the site is. If you are just wanting feedback, don't assume that this person will be easy on you (my blog was rated as mediocre). And if you don't really care about other's opinions and are just blogging as an outlet or for your own enjoyment, skip it as well. Still, I'm glad I had mine reviewed. The complete text of the review follows:

Infamous Criminal/Jack the Ripper and Me

This may not be to everyone’s tastes, but I personally enjoy reading about history and crimes and this blog caught my attention and peaked my interest straight away as it gives the impression of being more a fan site than an actual blog.

A lot of time and research has gone into this blog and although there is no fancy template or styles, it's really not needed as the writer sets out to keep it simple and concentrates more on quality of content rather than gimmicks and his hard work and attention to detail soon has you forgetting anything other than the history and story that is Jack the Ripper.

The writer is obviously interested and knowledgeable in his area of expertise and in a sea of political, personal and advertising blogs it is unique and stands out.

Sadly it is this exact quality that may make some overlook it, but to the fans of Jack the Ripper, this is a great site to visit and an opportunity to read on reviews of books and other things to do with the infamous criminal.

Although I enjoyed the read, unfortunately it's not one that I would bookmark to view later for updates. All in all it's still worthy of fans of the Victorian era and its criminology.

Don't go by reviews alone. I found your blog pretty unique and very informative.

Have you written a book yet? I notice that you've blogmarked my site. Please check this again, as new sections have been added, including tips on writing (aimed at people thinking of becoming authors)

Hope you find my resource site for authors of historical fiction useful. I'm looking for reviewers of books set in that time period which you seem very familiar with. In case you are interested in volunteering your services, please let me know (via email) and I'll add you to list of reviewers in a separate section that will be published soon.

I have immensly enjoyed the writings on the ripster cuz I am an avid fan all the way from the early known sightings, the johnny depp movie, and some of the new accounts of the old days that have just surfaced. I like the b. advance concept as it puts everything out there so that a larger scale can review it.
Take Care and great writing,
advance loan guy
