    Like the clean minimalist design and the content. But I wonder what all those logos in the top right are, they look a bit out of place?

    Thanks for the reply. The logos are there because my blog is a part of my main website (http://www.linxiting.com - it's an easy way to go to the biggest websites on the net).

    I would not use the color white for the text in the column because it´s hard to see with this background color

    You must add good contents to attract your visitors again and again and you should make better logo than the current one.

    I would get rid of the "Categories" listing. Category is default word in wordpress, and is a very unattractive word I would say to casual readers. Maybe if you called it "Latest Rants" or "Pick Your Poison" or something of the likes, basically anything other than calling it categories would give it a more original feel. Even just calling it "Topics" would be better.

    The font could be a bit larger on the sidebar and I think you should consider a new color scheme. The current one reminds me of like a very old dusty computer for some reason!

    Site is good.
    Just make a fresh design
    Also with a little advertising on your site will be pretty good.

    Clustered and confusing? I just think it's very clear. But thanks for the comment!

    Thanks for the reply. What kind of advertising do you suggest? Flashy ads in the right-sidebar or something else?

    content of the blog must be unique and copy scape passed.also you need to make your blog fully featured with map and visitors and sharing functionality.
