    It seems very basic but I have never made a theme but from the ones I have seen it does...

    I would suggest working on the typography a bit more. It's not bad but it could be better.

    Some suggestions:

    1. More hierarchy in the header
    2. Tighten up individual posts (less space between paragraphs and other elements)
    3. More space between individual posts.

    I think the biggest thing you are lacking is hierarchy. With such a minimal design (and I love minimal design) you need to work a bit harder to structure your content without the big graphics.

    I like how it's not too busy making it all about the content. Although your RSS link is visable, I would try something to make it stand out a little more.

    First off, thank you for the replies I really appreciate it. And my apologies for the late reply.

    @JohnPope

    O.k. that bug should be fixed now.

    I agree with you. It is a point of attention.

    # Tighten up individual posts (less space between paragraphs and other elements)
    # More space between individual posts.

    Do you mean on the front page? Or individual posts? The listing of posts on the front page and category page is something which I still feel can be improved.

    Oh yes, definitely.

    Thank you for your compliment. Not sure I understand what you mean about the RSS link though.

    It can take some time for me to reply unfortunately. I really appreciate the feedback. I am thinking about uploading the theme to the themes directory, but there would still have to be some work to be done.
