    Hello abdgd. Congrats on launching your new website! As a designer I'm sure you understand the importance of showcasing your work and talent.

    My first reaction is that the site (theme) is nice and clean. But it's lacking visual interest. I strongly suggest you show off your design skills on the homepage and draw your viewers in. Give them a reason to stick around and see what you can do!

    I'll be happy to take another look when you get a bit further along.

    Happy WPing!

    Thank you mate, I know I need to show my work, I had a slideshow with pictures but tje problem is my site took too long time to visit, so I decided to remove it.

    Do you have any tips? And another question: Do you feel that my website is slow or is it fast?

    Best Regards!

    No issues now with loading time for me. I think you'll be fine with adding in the slideshow. Just make sure to optimize your images a bit. PNGs under 200k or so should do the trick.

    I'd be happy to take another look for you if/when you add it back in.

    Happy WPing!

    Check my website now, I am sure you will love it. New theme, new logo (new colors), better slideshow, much faster and cleaner, cached and optimized both pages, photos and css/jscripts. What do you think now? Give me your opinions please.

    Looks good. I would move the Privacy and TOC to the bottom of the page. Above the fold is valuable real estate. Nobody reads the privacy policy or TOC even though its required.

    Nice idea SanDiegoDave7, I am done with it.

    Add a "Our Work" page on http://abdgd.com/our-work/

    Check it out and give me feedback.

    Look I have only been using WP for two weeks - virgin :-) and I think lorbach's idea of "showcasing your work and talent" and SanDiegoDave7's suggestion about relocating the Privacy and TOC were both a really good suggestions and your site looks great, I would even up the size of the home widgets. I think you just use a bit of custom css like,

    .home-widgets .widget-wrapper {
            min-height: (height of largest widget box);
    }

    even if you had to fill out the text in the two smaller boxes to even the content size up. Like I said, I am really new to all this but I think that doing this would as they say in Australia "put the icing on the cake" see http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20090318081958AAZDhOP

    I am sorry if it seems like I am offering yet another criticism of the fine job you have done on your site but I feel that the headline text really does lose something in the translation. I have taken the liberty of doing a minor re-write while trying to keep to the original ideas you were trying to get across. I have posted a re-work of your homepage here

    It is certainly not perfect as I am certainly not a copy writer but please take a look and see what you think, Pedro.

    That is the problem that faces me... I am not a good writer, is there a good way to fix the problem?

    Like I said, I am no copy writer just an English speaking person, but what did you think of the quick re-write I drafted http://imgur.com/PIHfUlU

    It is really nice, do you give me permissions to use the text? I will hire a copy writer in the next 3 weeks.

    Thank you pedro for the hard job :)

    You are welcome adbgb. As I said, I just had a quick look at it and corrected a few of the grammatical inconsistencies. See how you go with the copy writer or whoever you decide to get, but if that does not work out contact me through this post and I will see how I go with tidying up all the English text on your site. And yes you have my permission to use the modified text that I drafted if you like, Pedro.

    I just had a look and saw that you had put my modified text up on your site Look I am sorry but there is a mis-spelled word "serivices" on the third line, first word on the left. Sorry about that I should have taken more care, Pedro
