    Very well done. I especially like how your blogs are displayed. Instead of a few short word with a link, the fact that at least a paragraph on each topic is up front for each entry game me enough info to want to read more.

    Congrats!

    That's a lovely theme; however, one question is to be asked:

    --> What's your input to all that?

    I mean, everyone can buy a premium theme an install it on a site. When asked to review the site, we should review its content, because the content is really your part / contribution, not the design :)

    I'm glad you guys like it! I put a lot of hours into customizing since it's not a unique theme.

    Well, go ahead. Review the site! What are some things you like and dislike about the content? :D

    Thanks!

    That is a great Look to your site. I liked the way it has been layed out. Nice and not eye hurting colors. kind of Glossy look! This is of course not an extra ordinary theme though. Many more blogs and sites use this kind of look and feel. But it certainly made me take a second look at it and I would want to browse through it.

    You need to get off dreamhost :) shared hosting not ftw.

    In any case, I've been to your blog's new design looks great; however, the feedburner chicklet is not displaying correctly. Instead it's resting in the bottom right hand corner of the box. (I'm using firefox)

    Do you see what I mean?

    Yeah Im moving away from DreamHost soon.

    About the FeedBurner chicklet, what exactly are you trying to point out? I meant it to be on the lower right of the box, just to let you know in case you're confused.

    You have over 64 HTTP Requests , you should think reducing images.
    Not everybody has a good connection on internet, and the estimate time
    for a user to wait for loading a page is between 10-15 seconds, very close..reduce some images..
