    I'm new to autoblogging and got it up today. Its using feedwordpress with only 1 rss feed being used. Can someone give me comments both positive and negative? I don't know what I can improve. Whether it is on the design or the plugins, I can use any advice I can get especially on link building. Ty

    I hate the theme. IMO, it is too narrow and the black on the outside is distracting.

    But the biggest thing I noticed is you need to have ads between the posts. You are only giving the reader one chance to click on your ads. Hope it helps.

    Overall tho, for an autoblog, it is good.

    not bad for an autoblog id say though i agree the theme is pretty narrow though kind of forces people onto the ads which is cool.
    i think if you bring some decent traffic you will do alright with that blog

    The site has this "fake" look to it. You need to fill up your left column more. Maybe add some icons/pictures and more socialbookmarking links instead of just one. Also try to tweak the colors as one person has suggested.

    Should I switch the theme to something like this: http://e-lusion.com/greenmarinee/ (That green theme)

    Im not too good with CSS or if someone else can suggest a theme and how to do ads between posts, i dont know how to do that as well. Thanks.

    I dont want the site to look fake.

    you need to limit the number of posts on the homepage...this can done using the different posts per page plugin
    that way your home page wont be so long and the sidebar wont look so bear
    also you need to go into the css and edit the max image size one of your images is too big for the site
    i reccomend elegant box theme
    ive put into action here: mashtrends (dot) com
    its really simple to customise and get it how you want it

    Your current theme isn't bad, but I would definitely change the background. Try changing it to a light blue. Maybe something like this (hopefully this URL will work, its safe no worries):

    Code:

    I like it a lot better. It brightens up the page and makes it look a lot more professional.
