What Can I Do To Make This Site Better?

Hey everybody! I wanted to ask everyone who reads this blog something, whether you found it on Google five minutes ago, have been reading ever since we started, everything in between! Even if you're a writer here! I want to ask, what can I do to make this site better?

We had a really strong point in July of 2010 and had a lot of visitors. It decreased every month until November, where we got a few more than October, but then it went back down in December. That saddens me, because I try hard on this site, but I still feel like I could do better.

I've been given a few ideas from our awesome writer Gamercatgirl, but I want to see what you guys think. Now, for the new year, we have a few things up our sleeve! Here are some of the things I have planned:

  • A Fan Creation Page (You know you all want one! I haven't started working on it just yet, but I've been thinking about it. I'll have to reconnect with a person or two, make some new links and graphics, have someone draw up the HTML for the configurations of them, and a few other things, but I think we'll be able to!)

  • Videos of gameplay and other things. (Like the Pokemon Tournament I should be going to around June. For the past two years I've been going, and this year probably won't be any different!)

  • Improvements made to the Song Lyrics and Videos page. (YouTube is irritating, taking down tons of the videos we put up...)

  • POSSIBLY a new writer. (I'm not sure about this yet, but I'm starting to think about one. Because of that irritating thing known as real life, me and gamercatgirl are the only ones posting on here a lot, and I say "a lot" VERY loosely. I'm thinking of recruiting another friend to do some posting here, but I'm not sure.)

  • And, of course, tons of new posts about new games, new news, and new episodes of Winx Club, Bakugan, and Pokemon!
Even though I have those things in mind, I need YOUR help! Tell me in a comment what I should do to make this site better! Remember, this site is nothing without you guys. I need you to send it bloopers, recommendations, videos, and news as much as you can to my email,

I would also like to send out a special Thank You to the people who have been here from the beginning.

Phoebe Faulkner, creator of Winx-Fairies, and one of my best friends. She's been here ever since BEFORE I made this site, was the one who got it off of its feet for me, and was the one who inspired me most to make it.

Gamercatgirl, writer on Winx-Fairies, and a great friend who's constantly helping me with posts and news here.

Grace Qute, an awesome person who makes tons of our graphics here at Winx Bakugan Pokemon. The style of the website as I post this was mostly created by her! She made the links, the link to our forum, the header, and even more! Thanks sooo much, Grace!

Those are the three people that brought this site up with me, and helped me string together practically everything on it. If I'm forgetting anyone, don't blame me because I'm tired and it's 4:21 in the morning...meh, I was going to make a reference to a show I'm starting to get into, but I changed my mind.

Anyway, post a comment or email me your recommendations for this website! I'll edit this post and put them up on a list. HAPPY NEW YEAR!! (Wow, I typed a lot...)

  • Update Bloopers and Babelfish pages more often.
  • Split Bloopers and Babelfish pages into categories so they'll be easier to read.
  • Simplify graphics so they won't be as distracting.
  • Change background.
  • Organize text in articles to be easier to read. (I tried to fix up this article a bit, I'll do that a lot more from now on. Thanks Kiku!)


  1. Eh, I've been up for 23 hours, so I get where you're coming from. 8D
    One thing I'd like to see done is the Babelfish page and the Bloopers page get updated a little more often. And, maybe if you split the bloopers and Babelfishes into seperate categories, one for each show, it might make the pages a little neater.
    Anyway, this site is AWESOME!!!!!!!!

  2. Happy New Year!

    Suggestions: Your graphics are nice, but distracting. Lose the header at the top, because you have two, and simplify your button designs. Someone already stole your music button. Phoebe knows who. Check your KittyTop100 button, because it got awkward. And maybe get a bigger/better background, because the gradient does not work that well and wet paint and rainbow does not look nice.

    Also, would paragraphing properly and organising what you wrote hurt a little? It's like a giant block of text.

  3. Thanks FoS, and thanks Kiku! I'll think about separating the blooper page, but I think I'll just see if I can tag them all with their respective show, and then put links to the ones with certain tags. Because, my secret is...all of the pages are actually separate blogs made to look similar. SHHH! xD And, Kiku, I temporarily fixed the button, but I'll add a different picture later, I have to leave the house in 10 minutes.

  4. Dude, I agree with Fairy of Subterra your site is awesome, you get like three times more hits than my site and I update every month! But I do admit, a Fan Creation page would be awesome :D. And Kikurukina, I think thats asking a wee bit much lol. But my suggestion would be using the 'page' feature on blogger so you can attach pages to the home page ( instead of using separate blogs. If you do decide to do so, it will turn out somewhat like mine ( and you automatically get a navigation bar (horizontal or vertical or automatical link them, whatever you want) so Kikurukina can be more satisfied also. Good Luck :)


  5. Hey Rudy! :D I tried using the page feature before, but it wouldn't let me post, I would have to post everything in one giant block, and it ended up VERY messy, so I don't use it. I would do more work on the site now, but I JUST got back home from the New Years party, and my backspace key is all messed up so it's hard to type. I'm gonna have to spray some compressed air in there tomorrow...but, yeah, I'll update more tomorrow. See ya, guys! :D

  6. Can you also maybe allow anonymous comments on the Babelfish page?

  7. AH, DID I FORGET THAT!? Sorry!
