    I think you should take out this image:
    Code:
    hxxp://i403.photobucket.com/albums/pp113/agent_mango1/f1d09a3e-1.gif
    because it's very annoying.
    Other than that, I love it. Colors and style is cool...

    Agree, the image is very annoying. :)

    the blog looks fine although i am not a big fan of red over white font colors and the google ads are well placed too, i might have missed it but do you have a google privacy page there already? if not its better you make one na.

    I think it looks great apart from the flashing image - which reminds me of the "You're the 1 millionth viewer - get a free...."

    Cheers,

    Colors are good and everything is nicely spaced with the exception of that moving .gif. It makes me want to leave immediately. Other than that, it looks good!

    Everything looks perfect. Adsense is placed very nicely, and like everyone else already said the .gif has gotta go.

    Also you need a privacy policy if you want to get paid by Adsense.

    It's pretty good. As said above, replace the gif. The title of the site could also be bigger.

    If you're running it to maximise CPC, you'd need to rework the advertisements slightly
    - they need to fit in more. Basically you need less obvious advertisements, but ones that people will click on. If that makes any sense. People who read blogs rarely click on huge flashing ads, and are mostly just put off by them.

    1. Replace the flashing gif with a 250x250 image ad.
    2. The ad above the categories list should be removed. It's huge but few would click on it.
    3. The ad below "My Categories" is excellent, the colors need changed though so it looks like part of your site (ie red links)
    4. The ad below the buddy list is again something that nobody will click on.
    5. I'd drop a few CPC links between the article title and text on the home page, and a full standard text banner in there.
    6. I don't know about adsense requiring a privacy policy, but google's robots look for it and it effects your QS, so insert one anyway. It doesn't even have to make sense.

    guys i have a question: How do i put adsense inside blogger post correctly?

    I have put and it works but the problem is it appears in the expandable post summaries. It duplicates itself from post 1 to last post. I want to show the ads only when the post is clicked or expanded..
