    Hey everyone, I'm just after some critic and advice on what could be changed/added/enhanced to make my blog more appealing visually.

    Here's the URL: http://www.glennwolsey.com

    Thanks in advance.

    To be honest, it looks fine. It's neat and clean and easy to read, with a nice colour palette. People don't go to blogs for flashy graphics, they go for the content. As yours is nice looking and accessible, I wouldn't worry, to be honest. :)

    I agree with Lau. I think it looks really good as is, especially the colours you've chosen. :)

    Just out of curiosity, why are you using Symphony and not something like WordPress or TextPattern...?

    The designer/programmer recommend using Symphony because it's much more of a "bare bones" system. Very easy to customize and move around in. Plus, the CP looks amazing ;)

    I like the site alot -- clean, clear, and content already has some meat to it. Bravo! :) If only the balance of the web were so good! ;)

    About Symphony, how "bare-bones" is it? I'm trying to put a website together now using Drupal, a program that looks like it has potential, but seems like it might be more trouble than it's worth. (I guess at US$0, I'm getting what I pay for!) It seems you have been able to do a really nice job with symphony -- how much PHP do you need to know?

    I tried to check symphony21.com, but their online demo seems to be broken... :confused: Hardly auspicious!

    I think it's great. I wouldn't change anything.

    Glenn, we're not being very helpful. I'm sorry about that. But it's for a good reason. Your blog looks great! Hopefully that helps...somehow. ;):D
