hey guys,

 

i've been working on a hobby project of mine this summer and can use some opinion/critique.

 

the website is a blog on fashion/style/self-improvement tips for short men. it's a pretty standard blog where i curate content from other places plus add my own.

 

tell me what you think and suggest areas on improvement (along with 'how' because my coding skills are next to nothing beyond basic troubleshooting)

 

i haven't started advertising the blog yet as i've been busy putting content in there, and my goal is to monetize it through affiliations/referrals/ads

 

the blog uses wordpress - path theme.

 

thanks :)

Well the first thing I would mention is that "/** google analytics code */" is printed at the bottom of the page (it needs to be put in your <script> tag, it is currently outside of it).

The header font ('Oswald') looks terrible on Windows.

Nice! Good tips :D Now, the design is good but the page feels slow when scrolling perhaps you can disable the fixed background and make it move along with the page scrolling, which increases scrolling smoothness considerably

that will probably take some time to fix.  if it is clear enough to read i'm hoping people will look past that.

i will work on the background.  right now it's a gif/jpg file of the grid but i think i'll just have a plain colour instead to make it faster.  thanks!
