« on: February 05, 2006, 06:06:45 PM »

It's more of a blog then a full blow site. I would like to get some reviews on he actual idea and graphics.

Any info or construction criticizm will be highly apreciated.

Looks like a pretty fun site.  Really like the doggy graphic too.

I'll take a closer look at it... uh, after the game.  But it looks cool...

Congrats...

Hello!

I think blog sites are one of the hardest things to deal with from a design standpoint.  It's easy to feel like you need to add content etc. "around" your blog.  But I like the design of your site, although I am not a big fan of a black background it was easy to read.  (just my personal opinion on black - the color scheme is fine.)

One thing that confused me was how to read the entire entry.  I run greymatter, and I found that I am used to seeing "Read more" or something similar near the bottom of the entry.  I was able to do that by clicking the entry title, but I would see if there was something in word press that can be modified to make it a bit more clear. 

Just my opinions, but overall a good site.  Good luck to you!

Dan

Nice job Vanj, I even left you a reply.
If you can't design an attractive, standards-compliant website using nothing more than Notepad and a decent graphics editor, you need to rethink your approach to web design.

Nice site with very good topics, I will be leaving comments as I agree with alot of your content.  The color themes are fine, (i personally like dark backgrounds so I can see better as getting older takes its toll on the vision) lol, the only thing I see thusfar is the copyright at the bottom is missing a (t), no biggie, the links are a great idea, glad you took care of that. Keep up the good work, the interesting important topics and thanks for sharing !

Hey RAT, life would be pretty boring if we agreed on everything, now wouldn't it?  :)
