    Here's my new blog - any suggestions or things I should be doing that I'm not or that I am doing that I shouldn't be?

    Nice!
    I like single-column layouts, I'm sick to death with the typical left-navi-center-content-right-junk layouts.

    One thing: when I started reading "this is me with my dog ...", all I saw was the animated photos in the header and wondered, where is this person who writes to me? Also, where's the dog? All I see is cats ... then I noticed the picture at the side.
    Maybe put it on the left of the page, or not reference to the image directly.

    Other than that, a real nice site!

    I like it. Very simple and clean, and because of that, your photos stand out. Good example of having the design serve the content rather than distract from it.

    Only thing you should be aware of - Your flash header will not appear to anyone with scripting disabled (a lot of Firefox users with the NoScript add-on, which disables scripting by default).

    It's not a big deal because most users who do this are aware that disabling scripting may hide some content, and it's a simple click to enable it for a given site. I'm not at all saying that you shouldn't use the flash header -- just wanted to let you know. Some people put in a <noscript> notice just to let users know that they are missing content.

    Thanks for the feedback! I changed my introduction so it was clearer. I'll look further into how do do a <noscript> notice. I really appreciate you guys taking the time to look and comment.

    Shows your work off very nicely. All looks good, but you should change the copy on your 'About Us' page ASAP. I've copied/pasted what it says now below:

    Yikes - thanks for the heads up on the About page - I didn't even realize that was there. I fixed it. Thanks so much for the feedback!
