My main considerations in a webpage design is the the colors as the first aspect. I may be color blind at times but I can still discern a good color combination. Second is the subsectioning for the contents. A menu would be good to have if there is a long list of items to choose from. But for a blog-like webpage, I don't think a menu would be appropriate. The third consideration for a good web page is the speed of display vis-a-vis the graphics. If the page is heavy with graphics, that wouldn't pass my standards.
