    As a simple blog I think it is quite fine, the header image can be more professional in my opinion. Also the featured images or post images are too small to my taste. Maybe you can center the image to make them more appealing but I would prefer bigger images that span across the post.

    Your website needs a lot of customization.

    Seems sleek. But side bar can be utilized in a better way. I am also a newbie, but i placed a banner on side bar of my blog to make it look better.
    Here is the link of my blog just in case you need to see.

    Some things I noticed...

    First thing I noticed was the big white space in the middle between the photo and Recent Posts.

    Many of the headings repeat. For example, under "Why am i not successful ?" it says "Why am i not successful ?" a second time. There are more examples under Recent Posts.

    Some of the text is unusual. In English, a question mark at the end of a sentence does not normally have a space before it. (Traditional French uses a space in this position.) Also, "i" is usually a capital, "I".

    Epictetus didn't write anything down or record podcasts, so strictly speaking you can't quote him. One of his pupils wrote stuff down that he attributed to Epictetus.

    Who is Jim Rohn? Even less famous than Epictetus, and that's saying something!

    There are RSS links under Meta, and again under RSS. One of them uses the term "Entries" for the main feed, and the other uses the term "Posts".

    When you click "Leave a reply", the button below the form says "Post Comment". How many people know that a comment is the same as a reply?

    I know its a WordPress quirk, but what's the point of requiring an e-mail address when the comment form accepts fake addresses like someone@hotmail.com?

    On the "Motivational Pictures" page, the captions just repeat text that you've already read in the picture.

    The "motivational Videos" page is slow to load. The more videos you add, the slower it will get.

    Some of the headings and labels are repetitious. Many sentences are run-on and need to be shortened. Remove unnecessary words (example - "First" after the number 1. Lowercase is common in texting, but "I" should be capitalized.

    Let me take this paragraph and change it.

    Change your way of thinking, start being creative, start working hard towards your goal, you can’t change the future if you don’t change the present. Success doesn’t come easy, but it comes eventually. If you aren’t good at something, that’s because you are not trying hard enough to be.Let me tell you something – You are unique, and you are the one that creates his own future !

    Change your way of thinking. Be creative and start working hard towards your goal. You can't change the future if you don't change the present. Success doesn't come easy. If you work hard at something, eventually you will be successful. You are unique. You are the one that creates your future!

    Hope this critique helps.

    It does help but the content that's at the moment on the website won't be on the website when the website goes live :).. Thanks for the tips though

    I am looking for a widget that shows latests posts / popular posts tabs on which i could include just special categories to show. I tried flexible posts widget and Popular Posts Tabbed Widget for Jetpack but both show categories even after i hide them so i am looking for different solution, thanks in advance :)

    What do you think of the looks now, not the content :) .. Content is going to be edited totally before the official release.

    I think that your website is cool however it needs some adjustments. It would look better if there were more colors. I mean that it should be more colorful as it's about "motivation".

    Focus less on looks and more on the quality of the content. Write and post at least five days each week. Don't give up writing. Keep writing and ask people for feedback, share on facebook and other social sites.

    Thanks that's what I am trying to do. Currently I am writing 4 articles per 1 week. For 1 week the site being online I am getting an average, I am getting 60-80 unique visitors per day, and 120-30 page views :)
