    I think it looks great. I am trying to figure out how to auto blog myself and am having a difficult time finding a good ebook. Preferably free.

    Do you know of a good source.

    Again, the site looks fine but it isn't monetized. Are you just waiting for a month or so.
    If you open up unmoderated comments do you get links back from the people who comment. I think they are called pingbacks or trackbacks or something. (Like I said, I am trying to figure out how to do this.)

    I read somewhere that this is possible. Seems like an easy way to let the spammers create a lot of backlinks to your site if it is possible.

    Best of luck.

    i think overall it looks good, especially the theme and layout but imo its kinda wordy, so u might wanna cut down on words and add some videos from yt, that might make it look more attractive

    I agree with 3lementalist, too many words, people lose focus on the internet really really fast. You wan to get their attention with some images.
    It's the same theme I use on some of my autoblogs and it's nice ;p

    Your individual posts are MESSED UP!

    Each post has got a huge series of bullets below the post. Others appear like this as well when you view the individual posts.

    The home page takes WAAAY to long to load. It is possibly the latest Tweet bar causing this. When you use twitter tools in blogs, their downtime becomes your downtime, and they are notoriously down a lot. This long load time could be because of your host provider as well. You might want to consider enabling some kind of cache plugin like W3 Total Cache.

    I'm curious as to what you are using for your comments. Care to share?

    Otherwise the rest of it is decent. :)

    Your site is looking good but u can make it look more good...

    1 ) Add recent/random post in sidebar

    2) Your sexybookmark plugin settinga is messed up, Setup it properly.

    3) Open comments for everyone (moderated) at present i can see the visitors have to register on your site before commenting.

    4) Add a favicon if possible.

    5) and the last one i guess contact and privacy page is mandatory to use adsense (correct me if i'm wrong)

    Yeah, totally wasn't even thinking of adsense, but he's right. You got to get the TOS,PP,Contact pages in there.
