    My blog is around for some time. I suck at design, so please let me have your freewheeling comments/critique/feedback. This is a text-driven blog, so readability is important to me, and I would like the layout to be simple but not dull. WP version is 2.2.3 (ouch! I can already see Otto, whoo and others training their double-barreled gun at me, about to fire silver-tipped bullet engraved with "UPGRADE").

    I don't mind it that much.

    I think the header needs work but at least it is easy to navigate and quite usable.

    I also have an investing blog at James Cox Finance blog, let me know your thoughts ?

    I dont think it is that bad either and the use of images and color make it look pretty good.

    James and TVD, thanks for your encouraging comments! Yes, the header is part of my graphics woes, and I will try to do something about it soon (at least put a decent logo before the title, once I come up with one).

    James, you have some validation issues with your blog.

    Other than that, I like the overall layout (your header is certainly better than mine). The front page looks somewhat busy, but that could be just me. I like black text on white background in a textual blog (as you see from mine). Why do you have multiple feed buttons in the footer?

    I have multiple feed buttons because the theme is new and I have not decided what to put there yet... any ideas ?

    No idea how to make it validate, I'll have to work on that

    James, about stuff to put in the footer, I repeated the header navigational links there too, so after coming all the way down you won't have to scroll back up to use them. Usually works well for long pages.
