    Hello, my blog Jowki has been running for a while now and I have 100+ posts. I would like to know how I can improve it and what's good and what's bad.

    Thanks.

    I spent over a minute looking at your home page, and it never did finish loading. You've got way too much going on, and it is just about impossible to figure out where the worthwhile content is located. Simpler is usually better.

    Hello, Jowki should be tonnes faster now. Can I have some more reviews?

    Thanks.

    Lose the Recent post's, comments and tag cloud from the top. Put them in the side if you must have them, but I agree with the last poster; looking at the site is a bit overwhelming. You need to see what to read before scrolling down.

    Hi jowki,

    Empty your browsers history and open again; still takes a long time. Or try: http://webwait.com/ Here it took over 20 seconds the first time.

    ok, the site:
    At first look I think, what is it about, is there a main subject?
    Practical: make the Share buttons a quarter of their present size.
    Technically and content-wise: hat's off.

    Looking good Jowki. Much easier in the eyes and ! faster. On averag 2 seconds which is good (just one exemption of 20 secs like it was waiting for an ad or something, but then most of the frontpage was aleady visible). Ok, so far for testing from Europe.

    I think it looks great!

    One thing, your sidebars are pretty wordy--it doesn't look bad, but there's so much that I doubt many people will even look at it, you know what I mean? I would take out a few of those lists, like maybe the Pages one since you already have that at the top, and probably the Meta one too, and just put the ones you really want to stand out. That way they're more likely to catch people's eyes.

    But it looks good. You've got a lot of stuff there, but it's well organized.

    I still personally think it's too busy.

    But how... What's making it so busy? Is it the sidebar?

    I think the speed is kind of alright now, I've reduced the contents of the sidebar.

    Anything else I can improve on?
