    I like the layout! Red is a tricky color to use but you have done it right. I am a big fan of simple nice looking web sites. I would ease up on the ads though. I was thinking to myself that it was a nice site until all your ads loaded and then i quickly changed my mind. There is a fragile balance with ads; you never want to over due it.

    I even noticed your favicon....it made me laugh (in a good way). Clever site and good luck.

    The site is pretty clean, but not very unique looking. It reminds me a lot of sites like last.fm which may make it harder for people to personally 'brand' your website. To further the clean layout I would definately get rid of the red to white fade at the top, its one of the few unprofessional elements of the design in my opinion. Navigation is simple and easy to use. Overall welcome done!

    By the way I found your $100 a day idea really inspiring, nice one!

    PS: The baby logo thing is kinda scary, I'd consider a proper logo.

    My favorite part was the logo. I guess that makes me weird! That's the part that jumped at me right away and made me laugh. I thought it was pretty clever! If you really like it, stick to it. I thought it was very unique.

    The site does have a bit of a template look to it, but I think it looks very nice and clean. I like the red and white theme.

    I would agree though on the advertisement overkill. I'm no prude, but the hot babes could drive a few people away.

    At first I thought the text was a little small, but after a second look, it's fine. You have a lot of content, so it helps keep the page from getting too long. BTW, I'm veiwing it in 1152 res on a 19" monitor.

    Overall, looks great! Great job!

    Glad to hear it. I looked at it again and it still makes me laugh! When I saw the creepy baby, I assumed I would find something of an odd sense of humor in the blogs.

    One word of warning though. As I read some of your stuff, I noticed a lot of spelling and grammar errors. Maybe you should run your stuff through a spell check and grammar check before posting.

    Good luck to you!!

    For a blogger noob, your earnings and popularity have sure skyrocketed in just the first month. Maybe calling yourself "blogger noob" is a bit too humble? Around how many sites have you promoted your blog on?

    Alot of Information for a "Home Page"

    Hi BloggerNoob,

    I found your site to have quite alot of information for a home page and believe it to be quite distracting.

    I think it would be easy to get taken away from your main reason for having the site with all the other things going on there.

    I dont know much about blogging , however I will follow your site to find out more.

    Best Wishes

    The adds are a little to much (alot of them in that column!) I would change the logo over the baby, or just a better pic of the baby donst quite do it for me.


    For menu, i would add FAQ to the top line instead of having it in the drop down

    Hope it helps

    Very clean site but the first thing that caught my attention was that there is a lot of content on the front, didnt know where to look.

    Not saying it's bad to have alot of content, from what i read it's quite informative.

    Anyway nice site , will follow to see how it comes along.
