WordPress.COM Reader Design Feedback (about Featured Image & information usability)

I notice WordPress.COM’s “reader” functionality has changed, and I would like to share some “feedback” about it. Please feel free to add any other feedback (if you like — at least related to recent changes in the WordPress Reader).

I notice that the Featured Image (or some image, I guess) is much larger, and therefore more prominent. The reason I notice this most of all is because two other pieces of information are normally far more important to me, namely the blog’s site title and blog post title. These two pieces of information are now separated by SO MUCH screen space that I now sometimes find it difficult to see both the blog title and the post title at the same time. Yet BOTH of these two pieces of information are crucial for my decision to click or not to click — and that really is the question we all need to answer, isn’t it?

Meaningful learning


Lost and Desperate

I’ve seen this phrase a bit recently and I’m not sure I know how to create something ‘meaningful’.

Is it meaningful because it happened or because people added meaning to it?

You can’t create meaningful content for people without knowing individual context. And is it reasonable to know every users context?

Taking a punt at what you think it means to someone might suit most people but don’t be surprised if others find your content meaningless.
