Is my blog professional?

    I have just finished redesigning a blog that I am currently working on.
    Over the past 6 months it has suddenly become very popular, with more comments, twitter followers, and most importantly, more visitors.

    The blog was started as just a bit of a hobby, but is quickly turning into a full time job. As this is what I wanted, I'm worried that it still isn't as professional looking as it could get. What do you guys think?

    Thanks,

    Yes it not looking completely professional. You can make the borders=0 and remove the table borders. Moreover I would like to know about the pop up you used in your website.

    Thankyou for your comments.
    To begin with I had the border set to 0, but it looked very untidy.
    And as for the popup, It only comes up once a month. I will be removing that soon, as it was just a method to quickly boost our Facebook followers.

    I like the site. Facts are always something I'm looking for :) I think professional is very subjective though. If I come across a site which is literally 'poor', I leave straight away, but generally I like to see the content as well as the design. You have a lot of interactivity from visitors which can only add to the professionalism of the site.

    I do not like popups...
    Try to avoid them if you can.
