    Hey guys - haven't posted here in a while, been very busy working on a new project which we just released a few months ago.

    I really like the single pages of our blog, but I have gotten a few comments from others who are saying that when they land on the front page - they are not sure WHERE or WHAT to do.

    I like what I have done, but I also know you must listen to your readers - so if would be really cool if you could check out our travel blog and share with me your opinions, and also maybe a few ways I could make the front page more user friendly? http://www.aswetravel.com

    thanks in advance!

    On the whole, it looks pretty good to me. A few comments though:

    * You have two menus, one on either side of the header. Perhaps you could differentiate these stylistically (ie. background colour, smaller font, lighter shade of grey) to provide a visual clue to which one is more important. As it is, it just sort of makes me wonder why there are two menus at all.

    * I'm not 100% convinced by the feature box. The photo works well, but the text below seems a bit of a strange thing to have in the slider. Maybe that's just because I haven't seen something like that before though... I suppose the thing is that it looks and feels very much like a standard WordPress excerpt, not like slider material.

    Hope that's helpful!

    that's a very good domain name :)

    It took a little longer to load, actually its still loading as i write. I think your twitter or something on the sidebar is slowing down your website.

    You got great content on your blog, i see that you are already doing great on stumble upon and other social sites, congrats :)

    over all, great content, simple and neat theme, i like it,

    Not Bad. I agree with both of the above.

    I like:
    The two wide photo columns for the recent blogs
    The open feel
    The simple approach although the main photo header changes fast but loads slow.

    Minor Suggestions:
    -Top menu and lower menu bars above and below header photo are not aligned. Either make them the same or differentiate them as Eric suggests above.
    -Do not like the RSS links on right, move to below sidebar menu above 'as we travel recommends' OR take away all and replace with chicklets
    -If you are going to run banner ads in header space (world nomads) careful it does not unbalance the header as your logo is fairly light.
    - It seems to be mainly backpacking and hostel related. Perhaps put these in the title, description & H1 so people interested in the blog may find it organically. The blog has a lot to offer, no need to hide it ;]

    Overall pretty good!


    PS very random thought - do you have a mobile simplified log in / blog summary access for those actually out on the move looking for travel advice? Mobile is big and could increase viability and revenue...
