Hello fellow warriors,

This is the 3rd time I changed my website theme. I think it looks pretty good but always could use another pair of eyes. I am almost thinking it looks cluttered.

Maybe it is just late and it really is my eyes.

Seems I have a lot of "white" space down the side that might need filled. Or maybe I need to do away with the "featured" gallary. Not sure.

Anyhow would love some honest opinions.

My website url is in my signature. Almost forgot to state that.

    Hi Pat,

    Generally I think your website is well done. Some things you may want to consider however:
    -Making your Niche Business stand out more using a different colour scheme or larger font as my eyes were drawn to the advertisement initially rather than the business name.
    -The tag cloud section looks a little funny with all the different sized fonts but that may be due to your SEO company.
    - Maybe some more pictures throughout your paragraphs instead of only where there are breaks.
    - Maybe add a subtle colour to the sides of the page, nothing to glarey but white is a bit bland.
    - I actually really like the featured gallery.
    Generally I think it's great and you don't have much to do. All the best!

    Honestly Saying, it need more changes. Get a customized theme and forget about changing themes all the time.

      Thanks for all your thoughts and they are so notated.

      AllyChurch your points are good I will look at those you pointed out. I think I will make the Niche Business stand out. I can see what you are saying.

      Maybe a custom theme at some point in time but not now.

      Thanks again everyone it gives me something to look at.

    Quick glimpse, quick thoughts:

    - Consider a favicon.
    - For a quick (and nice) enhancements google a Google Fonts plugin (if you're using wordpress) and enhance your headings and links.
    - Logo could be improved, either changing it's design and/or colors; you could make it stand out using a different font, a contrasting color and/or another symbol.

    Good luck!

    Cool, and it will be great if you :
    1. make your posts on homepage in short (not to display each full post, just use read more etc)

    2. have u tried 2 columns?seems it will be awesome

    It looks decent. But the content seems to be a huge amount of text, might need some stuff in between the paragraphs. Plus the header needs to be more catchy, it seems a little small too

    AdSense ads backgrounds not blended in, and Archives widget looks too long on the page, but otherwise in whole it looks fine to me.

    I agree - the logo looks like it needs some work.

    Also, just as a side note - have you considered having a sign up form to give away a FREE offer, like an ebook or a video to capture people's email addresses? Even if you're making money with Adsense and affiliate offers, having an autoresponder to build the list can really help.
