    As you said "its just wordpress", but that makes sense for a personal site/blog.
    You used pretty clean and simple template, that's plus.

    BTW, why redirection to get to the main site?

    Yeah, what is the point in the redirection page? :confused: It's kinda annoying and it's not actually re-directing to a different domain or anything.

    Always use 0 second redirects (if you have to use them at all, I'm certainly guilty though).

    Agreed. It reminds me of old splash pages that, thankfully, have gone the way of the Dodo....lose the redirect. :)

    So you have a redirect page which really shouldn't be there, and then wordpress with a default template. I don't mean to be harsh, but I don't see why you would even post this.

    Yeah, its obvious you are messing with the code, everything is out of alignment right now.

    Definitely a little out of alignment. And as everyone else has said whats the point of the redirect? Looks pretty good for a little blog, but still needs some work.

    Not bad, although it could use more "life" stuff for content because it'd be original. Too many Apple blogs out there.
