Review my new blog design

    Well finally I decided to start my webmaster blog and got a new design for my wp blog

    Not to heavy on graphics and have kept it minimalistic.

    Your views would be appreciated

    I just took a look and gave you your first comment. I like the design and lack of clutter. I would ditch the PPP badges but that's just me.

    Well i specifically had a spot made for those badges as I thought that it would be the best spot for selling ad space, not sure if i can fit them somewhere else

    Thanks for your comments

    Yeah I like it, very easy on the eye but I would agree on the ads they stick out a bit, but other than that its a nice layout.

    Hi there,

    I like the design, it's very innovative...
    but it needs more content, but it's new, you'll work on that.

    Layout: good and different - 7 /10
    Color Combination: Ok - 6 /10
    Contents: I know it is a new site and hence not that much informative but it needs to be.
    Loading Time: Fast 7/10

    Likes:
    a) The logo and the top banner

    Suggestions:
    a) The text color for menu can change. Now it is very light and it does not match the menu bg
    b) Try to reduce the size of images for eg: Search, very big and doesn't look good!
    c) You can add up a bg for categories, subscribe etc; similar to the one in the ads.

    Overall : Good, try to built upon it. All the best!

    Really nice design, I like it! Rajesh pretty much summed up my thoughts about your site. The only piece of advice I have to offer is to rework the magnifying glass graphic so that it's edges are smoother. At the moment I'm seeing jagged edges (as shown below)...

    [​IMG]

    I'm not meaning to be over-observant but to me having clean and crisp images in a web 2.0 design is as important as any other feature. :)

    All the best,
    Liam

    Easy on the eyes, which is a good thing.

    Nice 2 column layout also.

    Congrats :)
