    I now have my website to the most part where I want it to be. I have blogs being posted daily and I am getting steady traffic. I want to know what everyone thinks, what I can imporve on, ad placements, are my categories in a great position or do they need to be reordered etc.

    Any kind of comments are fine, it helps build what real visitors think.

    RIght now I am thinking about a custom made template, but I will let other people decide also. My store will become an ebay store. I am currently narrowing down my bookmarks toolbar to only have 5, stumble delicious technorati, digg and 1 other that I can't think of rigtht now

    Reps will be given, and if you want to exchange links, I'm more than willing :D

    hey!!! the site is really wonderful but the basic problem is that the color combination itches in my eyes(dont wana sound rude) but thats what i feel..
    The green color is what i m talking about...just make it a little lighter and u have a rocking site.. :)

    Don't forget to set background-color in css style for body (probably white, or something...)

    The main area of the site looks kind of messy with all those bookmark buttons beneath each post. I don't like the orange color of the Mybloglog widget, it looks out of place, perhaps use a darker shade of blue or green for it.

    Also, the search box at the top right covers up some of the logo.
    I'm using Firefox and 1024x768 resolution.

    As everyone else said, I don't like the green. In fact, I'd say you'd do far better with a high resolution stock photo as the background for a banner.

    The content's great but the look is a little dated and the colour scheme just makes the eyes hurt.

    i agree that the colors used doesn't look nice. its like slashdot. use colors that are lighter.. colors usually in web 2.0 sites. this site might help.

    I agree with the other posts about color...

    Also, the header... I surf with my bookmarks sidebar open, and your header line "Windows Mobile 6 Smartphones" wraps around to the next line... That kind of messes the page up...

    Your "store" page is blank...

    Other then that, I like the content :)

    I'd left align the top nav rather than it being on the right. Little things like that annoy me. As mentioned, the search box covers the logo when displayed at 1024x768 or under. The ebay auctions area could also do with tidying up in terms of lining it up a bit neater with the rest of the column. I'd try to get rid of the borders around the social bookmarking images too just to make it look a bit neater.

    Good content though, definitely a lot of potential.

    The design is very nice. Adsense although is bad. Try blending better, if you need more help PM me.

    It looks fine other than that.

    Template looks good but kind of dark.

    Overall positive but not too much.

    The colour needs improvement..that's the first impression. Red wording on black background is a no no..
    think of visitors experience, must be comfortable to the eyes

    your killing me with my templates :D

    What would be the best color combination? Would I be better off getting a custom template made up to fit my style?

    i don't to adsense the blog out to much because then it will look like I am doing it for the money, which secretly I am.

    all reps up to fancymask is done. I repped to much for 24 hours :D

    what do you think of:
    http://themes.wordpress.net/other/left-sidebar/4046/blueheader-112/ I will change the header for sure

    Im not too keen on the colours! Other than that it looks great, and easy to use, which is always a positive thing.
