https://pitchfork.com/ Website analysis: Their articles have a lot to do with current music industry. News on what is new music being released, drama or hard news on musicians.

Analysis of article: Gorillaz Announce Album, Share New Song Featuring Tame Impala: Listen
Okay their ads at the top take more than a third of the screen. This is annoying. Famous people like Stevie Nicks and Bad Bunny will be featured. They are promoting it now, but the album won’t come out until February of next year… Basically it was a quick run down of a new release to promote the album coming out and the featured artists. Also updating that Gorillaz are on tour right now. At the bottom, they give a list of the songs.
https://www.mcsweeneys.net/ Analysis of website: They are creating hierarchy in their website with trending posts and recent posts. However, it’s hard to decipher where my eye should go. I think the problem is typographic color. I think by having their titles in the center bolded, this will make priority for where the people coming into the site to click on. The titles are hilarious. I think they do a good job with capturing the audience with the title. This site has many writers. Not the easiest to navigate.
Analysis of the article: THANK YOU FOR CALLING THE PERIMENOPAUSE HOTLINE, WHERE OUR HOLD TIMES ARE COMPLETELY UNPREDICTABLE
Their writing is engaging and exciting to keep reading for its funny commentary and passion in writing about perimenopause. They do a great job creating hierarchy in information on this page better. I feel like this is just stand up company in written form. It’s not education, just entertainment. There is some factual stuff and something to gain from the article. They make learning fun. Oddly descriptive in explaining perimenopause. This article is helpful for people going through this to bring themselves back to a sense a humor since it can be a serious topic. Describing hot flashes, symptoms in funny, exaggerating, and metaphoric ways. They end it with an exciting note of how awesome it is to be in menopause.
OnMilwaukee. Analysis of website: As soon as you get on the site, there’s articles filled with what to do for the week, weekend, or whenever. Farmers markets guide. This is a helpful website for people that have recently moved into the Milwaukee area. There’s an add buying baseball caps and the image is engaging too. Everything feels boxy. I feel like the lack of options for pages to click on at the top are daunting for me. “On/anything” I would feel lost if I was trying to find an activity. But the weekend preview is nice if I want to look up something quick and see if thee’s antyhting to do for the weekend. They are transparent with people and they want to help.
Analysis of article: Milwaukee free summer music series guide
There’s a bug chunck of add that is in the beginning of the article that I thought was part of the article. They make it know that the live concerts are free. There’s a nice message to have fun and after that, the information and dates are listed in order. The time, location, website, and date are all listed. I think it would be better if the information was organized in a calendar format so people don’t need to keep scrolling.
