    Overall, looks nice!

    • The blog content text is a little small for my liking.
    • The "Published .." text and "Tags" "Share" text lacks contrast.
    • The "logo" text area doesn't handle font size changes well. A couple increases causes overlap. The rest of the page seems to handle it well.
    • HTML doesn't validate. For the errors on links using the &, they can be fixed by using & instead.
    • There are some CSS errors as well, but most of them will be ignored anyways since they are browser specific, though it wouldn't for you to take a stroll through the errors to make sure their all expected.
    • The search field at the right lacks clarity on what the search pertains to, blog postings, your web site, all of the web, etc.
    • Contact page: The field label text is a bit big, overwhelming. This will help reduce how much room the whole thing takes up and would allow you to make a larger message box, which I believe people would appreciate.
    • Contact page: The bottom field looks like it may be a placeholder, but it's confusing otherwise.
    • Contact page: Your "human check" field could confuse some people. May want to add a note beneath it to explain a little more about, like you do for the name and email fields.
    • Register page: This page has a completely different look and doesn't seem to mention your site. This can destroy the trust between your site and the user.
    • Typo in P.S. of first post, the word, should
    • Semantic tagging looks good.
    • Alt attributes seem to be on place for images, good.
    • I like your pictures page. Don't think I've seen that particular image gallery style.

    Alright, done rambling. Enjoy.

    this might be because of the CSS errors....

    Your fonts are horribly mis-matched throughout the site....

    You should pick a size and type and stick with it.... your site is less annoying that way.

    I am not sure if you really want comments... or if you are just trying to advertise... hmmm.

    Current project:
