    Ok, I've worked pretty hard on my WP site and it's time to ask some of you what you think. I've been paying close attention to this forum and envy alot of you on what you've done to your blogs...So here I go....

    What do you guys and girls (men and women) :-) think about my site...?

    Be gentle, I'm new to the whole blogging thing ;-)

    First of all, cool header image. I figure the planet is Uranus (no puns, folk)?

    The only thing I'd suggest is maybe blocking off the edges of your footer image. Right now it doesn't seem to balance with the top, which is square edged.

    "The only thing I'd suggest is maybe blocking off the edges of your footer image. Right now it doesn't seem to balance with the top, which is square edged."

    I agree, I can't figure out how to do that yet. I'm using photoshop.

    I'm also experimenting with different header images....is there a way to rotate the header images so it would change to a different image when visting the site at different times. I guess what i'm trying to say is: Everytime the page is reloaded a different header image appears...?

    There's a number of ways you can go about that. One way is a plugin:

    I don't have the exact link right now, but on http://photomatt.net under the Scripts or Code section, there is a very good PHP script that rotates images in a specified directory using HTTP headers.

    The only suggestion I have to offer is that you break up the text of your entries with some whitespace (e.g. paragraphs or even full line breaks between paragraphs). While this is clearly only one person's opinion, having a solid bock of text can be daunting to a reader.

    I echo what El Chupacabra says about a bit more white space. Also, the "haze" around the container is bothersome to me. It makes me think I've had a bit too much to drink or that I may need to head over to the optometrist. May be I did and I do! Also, perhaps another problem related to that is that your footer text spills out into the left and right margins. That should be an easy fix.

    Nice site content! I'd head on over to Shadow's site and enter his "Content Is Everything" Contest because you definitely don't have ordinary content!

    OT, I used to work for Ed Szczepanski, who discovered Comet 1996 B1, now known as Comet Szczepanski (should have been called "Comet Ed" IMHO!).

    And love the dawg!

    Also about changing images, you are using Kubrick, which I am not very familiar with, but I recall reading about being able to change aspects of your site (background images, greetings, etc.) depending on the time of day it is. While the below is NOT the site I remember reading about this at, it was the only one I could find while Googling.

    Actually, that's the Horsehead Nebula, isn't it? I like the site, the "haze" effect around the container is neat, but yes, some paragraphing and more white space.... makes for readability!

    Great site though, and your music is nifty.

    Thanks for the comments, I'll work on the text spacing. I see what your taking about, it is a little hard on the eyes. I work on it tonight. Thanks again! :-)

    ok, I've been up all night tweaking my site...I Finally got my Gravatar's to work, but I would like to be able to place the Gravatar beside the commentors name...How do I go about this? Right now they're placed on top of the name...

    Here's the site address again...

    Looks pretty good!

    Hmm, your header doesn't appear to show up on my Firefox... Or isn't there one?

    I think you want photos (plural) instead of photo's (possessive) throughout the section.
