Review: ReviewSaurus – The Techie Dino

ReviewSaurus is a tech blog, authored by Mayank, with special focus on free Software-related stuff. Notice that I say “special focus” – that’s because it is pretty much a write-it-all blog.

Design

The first thing that strikes me is its abnormal Design. He uses the BloggingPro theme by DesignDisease, which is an acceptable theme. However, he has muddled it up a bit, by adding widgets and extra designs in an ad-hoc manner. This induces the reader to think that it is spammy and unprofessional.

Content

The main reason I follow ReviewSaurus is its content. Despite the Design issues, his content is good. But he could do with better usage of bold+underlined text – in my opinion, he uses it too frequently.

RSS Feeds

He offers site feed proxied through FeedBurner.

Oops! Why do I have to confuse you with technical jargon? He offers his feed through FeedBurner. Now that’s a better non-geeky defenition 😉

Contests

Oh yeah! This is where it gets exciting for readers – contests and rewards.

ReviewSaurus currently runs a guest blog contest, whereby you send in your Reviews, and may get featured on ReviewSaurus, with a link back to your blog, with anchor text of your choice.

He also has a blog review contest, and this post of mine qualifies as one.

The Verdict

All in all, a very satisfying blog, because it is the content that matters the most, and he does a good job by reviewing stuff that we have previously only heard of.

I found a work-around to his poor Design – subscribe to his feed and read conveniently in the lounge of your feed reader 😀

So, clean up your Design or get a new one, and you have a cool blog, Mayank!
