    The site looks quite nice. Is it your own design, or one you got from Woo? I would perhaps make the social icons a bit smaller, but that's the only thing that stood out for me as something I might change.

    Yes. It's kinda slow to load. But I think your site looks nice. I agree, you have to make the social icons smaller..

    Your website loaded very slowly for me. It has a nice and clean layout, however it appears that you did not design that, nor build the platform, so i'm not sure if this warrants any true "reviews"...

    Hi,

    It's a good site but still needs a lot of improvement. Here are the things I like from your site:
    1. Use of social networking sharing facility.
    2. Organized menu of the left side of the site.

    And the things that you need to look at:

    1. The banner is not really my type.
    2. A page that tells about the site.
    3. An FAQ page.

    Overall is good.

    The logo seems slightly out of place among the clean and simple design.

    The Contact and Subscribe links on the top bar are redundant, as they are repeated below in the navigation bar.

    Other than that, the only thing I would suggest is to move the 'Continue Reading' button to the right side of each post, as it gets lost among all the social networking icons. A simple align right of that button would clean it up a little.

    I kind of agree with some of the above comments

    Your basic site loaded quickly but the links under your category headings were terribly slow to come up.

    I also think you need some sort of descriptive text towards the top of your home page telling what you are trying to do with the site. If I hadn't read your description here, I would have had no idea.

    I really like your clean basic layout and your choice of muted colors. I get turned off very quickly when I visit a site that hurts my eyes or have to squint to read the text.

    Your site logo being off to the side just gave me an impression of the site being off balance. I think you could either center that logo or add something on the right side to balance it out.

    This is just personal opinion. Keep your main page short. I hate having to scroll down a long index page.

    I think you have done a great job so far. Keep it up and enjoy what you are doing.

    oh, it loads too slowly, this is a problem, or your site more beautiful, not many people have the patience to point to open it.
