In order to get a more consistent and a good user experience blog overview page I would suggest the following. Feel free to comment. (:

- Cut off text after 110 characters
- replace blog rating by article likes

Check out my blog overview mockup.

I think this looks great! I'd perhaps like a longer description than 110 characters, maybe a couple of lines or so, but the other parts of the mock-up look fantastic.

I second this suggestion.

I think that likes and comments should be more obvious to the reader, therefore I have put in a more relevant place. In case users would post images in their blog entry, there should be an option to feature one image for the main blogs ocerview page which could then replace the user avatar. But this seems technically a little more complicated.

Thanks for the mockup.

My comment:

way way way way way too busy. from a user perspective, it is mind boggling to take in from the visual perspective.

in my opinion, it would scare our community members away.

what ips has done with the design in their latest development is very easy on the eyes. it is quick to take in and comprehend/scan.
