    Looks nice and simple. Might I suggest some padding between the post text and the edge of the red background? I think it would look better and be easier to scan.

    I took your advice and added a little more padding, does it look better?

    It looks no different to me. I was going to suggest that as well but decided not to, figured someone else would, and was right.

    You need to sit about 8-9 pixels off the left margin:

    Currently you have this:

    .post {
    margin: 0 0 40px;
    text-align: justify;
    }

    None of that affect the margin uesugi67 is speaking of

    You need this:

    .post {
    margin: 0 0 40px 9px;
    text-align: justify;
    }

    assigning margins: top, right, bottom, left.

    yes much :) but having done that now your right border looks tight. If it were me, I would add the same size margin on the right.

    margin: 0 9px 40px 9px

    that might turn out to make your post area seem narrow, you might want to try 8/8 or 7/7 and see how that looks to you, but I wouldnt go any less than 6px for each.

    Looks better.

    You might want to declare the page background as white, since right now you haven't declared it so it defaults to the user's defaults. 99% of people use white, but I use light blue. Lots of sites, even big sites, make this mistake.

    The theme looks nice but the footer's text color seem blind. You should change it to different colour
