dude, looks so sweet, I love the stripped background, easy on the eyes. no overlapping areas or anything, neat and simple stuff. love the black and white, blends well together. One comment though, your favicon!! If you could put something related to the colors of your site or text on it, that'd be cool.
Oh and my site is DezignCubicle | Welcome.

cheers

The text renders oddly in Windows. Almost hard to see. Why not just use a standardized web font?

Need space at bottom. Padding.

Scroll within the page? I'd fix that, let CSS expand column as needed. I'm guessing this is an iframe?

Aside from that, looks good.

I generally expect the worst (and am usually not disappointed) when somebody requests design feedback in public. It's nice to not see an absolute trainwreck every now and again.

I'd link to some of my work, but a lot of it is in re-dev right now.

Very good work there..my only comment would be to style the WP blog with your overall theme..having the other tabs show up in one scheme and then having the blog show up in a different scheme throws off the entire flow..

Also, since you lose the top menu bar in the blog, you have to hit BACK to go back to the site..so fix that and you'll be good..

Regards

Joe,
Cool stuff.
I mainly looked at how easy it was to navigate and find information.
Everything is there within 2 clicks ... well done.
Also very easy on the eyes.

Cheers ... McBie

Thanks for the feedback! Much appreciated.

@patrickv: Awesome website and design!

@kpmedia: What browser are you using on Windows? I checked both Internet Explorer and Firefox. More issues with Internet Explorer and I agree the bottom needs some additional padding (especially in Internet Explorer). I agree with the scrolling in the page - that is how iWeb renders RSS feeds. I'm not a huge fan of it and I'm looking into alternatives. No rush, but send me a link when you finish!

@Raz0rEdge Hmm..my idea was to differentiate between my blog and personal website. And I agree, I need to fix the top navigation to go back to my main page.

@McBie Thanks! My goal is to make it as easy as possible to navigate through my website.

FF3 and Chrome. I never use IE.

RSS - iWeb may make it that way, but with some work, I bet you could CSS it better. (Unless it's a self-contained JS object, which may or may not be customizable all that easily.)

That's completely fine, but you just need a way to go back to the main site since the blog isn't your main site..

Yea, I'm not a huge fan of IE. I'll have to check chrome.

I'm going to play around with it - I'm not 100% sure how to edit the CSS in iWeb.
