How Life Works is a cool new website packed full of easy to read articles about, you guessed it, life, or should I say tips on improving your life. You can find helpful tips on everything, from saving money on your grocery bills to relationship advice. Money and love, pretty important topics for life.
You can probably find plenty of advice sites out their, but there a few things I really like about this one. The first, which I am sure you saw already is their great big Search form. Having a search function is a great tool for users, and on this site they should have no problem finding what they are looking for.
The other two items I really liked was their listing of Recommended Articles, and their listing of Recently Featured Articles on their home page. Having a recommended article section is a great way to sell your site by showing your visitors your best work. If it’s your best work, or most valuable content, odds are good your visitors will like it as well. Having your recently featured content is also a great tool. It’s great for those returning visitors who made have already read your new content, and have returned to reference it in some way. It can also help draw in the new visitor, and give them an idea what happens on this site.
Thumbs up or thumbs down? I would have to give it two thumbs up. Honestly I was sold with the header alone. Cool logo, easy search, professional appearance. I did manage to find some good advice articles though (see their recent stuff under flash). I even found some stuff about web hosting in their business section.
