Introducing Ashley Faulkes

Now, let me introduce you to the one who can really help you with your blog either with the techie part or with the design or branding part.

Ashley Faulkes is a web developer, which means he is a techie guy who knows how to code and do all those complicated things with the software that 90% of us don’t know or hate to do it.

However, Ashley is more than a simple web developer. He is a rare breed, a techie guy with artistic skills that can write code but also match colors, analyze layouts, design all kind of elements and so on.

This is a rare combination: web developer + design abilities + artistic skills. It is not so easy to find somebody like him these days.

What is in it for you?

Apart from writing code and correcting mistakes he can analyze a website or blog, make a review with all the good and the bad of that site from loading time and plugins to themes, layout, colors, optin forms, sidebars and other design elements. He can even help you with advice on branding and social media etc.

An impressive review

Simply put it, I asked him to analyze my blog. I was  not interested in the loading speed and plugins but I was very interested in improving the design of my blog. He analyzed everything, according to my wish and created a review and published it on his blog.

The elements analyzed were:

  • First impression of the blog
  • Theme suggestions
  • Navigation
  • Branding and consistency
  • Blog pages (existing ones but also suggestions for new ones)
  • Sidebar analysis: search form, widgets, advertising, comments
  • Blog posts: layout and consistency
  • Images and social share buttons
  • Email list and leads.

He also gave me a list of suggestions and told me what can I do to improve my blog. Impressive, isn’t it? However, do not take my words for granted. Go and read the review and see for yourself. You can find the review here:

How much did all these cost me? Well, this was the best part. It was very affordable as it cost me ZERO dollars. Nothing. Nada! How come?

Well, Ashley is now expanding his business and he is offering:

One free professional review per week for a site or blog.


I was one of the first lucky ones. The simple fact that I was on his list made me eligible for that review and … that was it. I was chosen and now I have plenty of information about what is not working on my blog and what should I do to improve.

You can have that, too. How?

    • Hi Ashley,

      Thank you for the comment. Well, I started to make some changes. I placed an optin form with a free gift and I changed the popular posts widgets. Now it is just in text form. I also reduced greatly the length of the Recent comments widget. As you see I take into account your advice. Sooner or later the blog will improve considerably.

      Have a wonderful day

    Hi Silviu,
    I am on Ashley’s mailing list and he talked about his review for your site. So, I thought I would stop over.

    I think you did a good post for Ashley.

    I then went to Ashley’s site. Oh my goodness. I had no idea the review would be so detailed. He spent a lot of time on it! Wow!

    He gave me some ideas too.


  4. Hi Silviu,

    You’re right, people that are both artists and coders are rare.

    I have been one of those strange birds for nearly two decades. I wonder if Ashley is an artist/writer, who codes out of necessity, as I do, or if he’s a coder (analytical left brainer type) who developed his creative side.

    He is certainly one of the best blogger buddies anyone can have, and I always appreciate his comments and feedback.

    - Cole
