    Hello
    I am creating a blog.
    http://alkantenik.com/cook/

    Can you review it for me? I think fonts are bad. Which fonts do you prefer?
    Also any other issues?
    Thanks.

    I think the fonts look ok, maybe try it without the all caps? Maybe try upping the size a bit on the paragraph text, as well as the line height. Also the hover on the black portion of the top bar, is also black, so it disappears. Overall i think it looks pretty good

    Hello alkantenik,

    I review your site.Its a nice design.
    But i think some changes make your site more professional.
    You are right site font is not looking good.
    Use can use open sans font because its a very popular web font or you can use any font from google.
    And under title area comment, date, author, category style is also not looking good.
    You also can use a proper size of images for post because every post have different image size its not looking professional.
    Footer title and search is also not looking good.
    And i think the major option is responsive design. you know now a days most of the people use smartphone and they want to see site from phone.

    Please don't mind :). As a professional web developer i suggest.

    I agree with Saikatkhulna,

    You should look up some more modern fonts on Google fonts library or fontsquirrel.

    I don't mind about the footer.

    Responsive design is definitely a must now a days! You can use Foundation to achieve that. By simply adding some styles and bones CSS it can be achieved quite easily. You can use other frameworks as well (Bootstrap, getSkeleton etc.)

    Also Yes to the images, try to fix them, so they all would be the same size.

    And you should style more the search bars. They look odd without any styling.

    Also would suggest to use background when hovering with a subtle CSS3 animation.

    Hope it helps,

    On 20 inch monitors fonts size a bit small hard to read, also there are plenty of more readable fonts than you choose.

    First the position between fonts chosen is important and make sure to try various fonts matching the top sites in the same topic your website is.
