I'm not entirely sure what the pig on the balloon is supposed to be. Regardless, spend more time on it - the edges look very jagged.
The heading image is just... weird, it looks like one image was place on top of another. I would redo it entirely. http://puu.sh/15Mqt
You have a box in the clouds - but there's nothing in it! Looks very strange. Oh, I know why:
I had Adblock on. Now that it's off... That is just a uniquely horrible place to put ads - and they don't even fit into the design. It's like a scar on the face of your clean website design. Move 'em or remove 'em.
Not entirely sure what this thing is to the right of the slideshow arrow (http://puu.sh/15M07), but it doesn't seem very useful. I would take it out.
Add some padding to your sidebar content boxes.
I assume that you're going to insert pictures and spice up the content area a bit.
The random clouds are unneeded and don't add the the design.
"More articles" seems out of place.
Arial is overused - get a unique (not to say bad/unreadable) font.
Pagitnation just doesn't excite me.
The footer could use work. Make it go all the way across the page, and give padding inside the boxes. Also, the ads don't fit (in terms of size) correctly.
Use ems, not pts.
YSlow actually likes your page - good job!
Now, a couple things you don't have:
Is that a homepage? There's no text or headlines to draw the user in - they're just presented with a long page on twelve point text.
- For me there is too much stuff moving around. It is distracting from the content. I am assuming you are all after clicks, and not the content?
- Every text block has the same icon. I think you would have more credibility if you had a different one for each?
- Footer is very empty.... Need more stuff in there, or make it smaller.
Hi, I think the design is clean. I don't get a word there so I will focus only on the design and layout .
The design is clean but for me it is too empty. I would like to see light borders to distinguish each article maybe. Now I am quite confused (but maybe that is because I don't know what is written). I would add more images to the site as well - make them different. The right sidebar seems too empty as well.
The logo is a bit pixelated, it seems the header itself hasn't been set up properly. My guess is that the background was set behind the div and a stretched image on top of it. You should streamline the header and place everything into one .header div.
