The more feedback you get – the more you will learn. The less you get – the less you will learn. And you can’t really afford to not be learning all-day every-day right now.
Not all feedback is useful in of itself. Oh! Another thing to learn about! How do you know the difference? Some people are just not educated in this domain. Some people are downright mean. Those are all things you need to learn to navigate ASAP. All the feedback will be interesting.
Here are some relaxed places to poll for thoughts.
Feedback Friday on Reddit/web_design
This one is a little general. It’s not just visual web design.
You know what that is! But also – just as a reminder – you could write mywebsite.com (and add the link) if you were trying to avoid a visible
peprojects.dev/alpha-4/username/projects/project-nametype thing. But that doesn’t matter, right? Also – get your own dang domain already!
What is the point of this website? Is it a personal portfolio? Well – what’s the purpose of that? The goal of that – would be to get a job. Or hold place and act as a neutral way to contact you while you area learning.
There’s always some goal. It could have been just a practice project to get better at a certain skill or it could be a store or whatever you what.
Figure out the goal – and be explicit. That’s the only way it can really be critiqued. It’s either doing its job or it isn’t.
These only really matter if they are connected to what feedback you want. This isn’t that technical of a forum. That might be more important for “Showoff Saturdays” but you can tell them it if you want.
What types of things are you interested in? Fonts, space, colors, layout, content/story, different screen sizes, accessibility, the code, the feelings it evokes…
We can help you game this out in the chatroom too.
Optional. Any other info you have to help them give you the best feedback. Is something broken? Note that – so that it’s not a focus of their review. Did you have a few options or ideas that you were thinking about?

Don’t be this guy. People spent tons of time helping him and then he deleted his post / which is not helpful to anyone else now.
