    Hey guys, now I am currently building up my new tumblr theme page. [Link]
    I need a few general feedbacks :)

    1. Is the loading speed fast?
    2. Is there too much ads?
    3. Does it look fresh? look like something new?
    4. Would you use my themes?
    5. Any changes you would make?
    6. Better way to make money rather than google ads?

    Thanks :)

    1. According to Pingdom here are your loadtime/site stats:
    http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/#!/b66c7O/http://zen-themes-2.tumblr.com/

    2. As far as ads go I wouldn't say there are too many, however there are more than usually seen on a theme page. I think because of the nature of the content of your T$mblr page you should be fine in slipping under the radar of the ban hammers. But then again, they are full of $hit when it comes to their TOS.

    3. It has a 'clean' look about it. As for looking "fresh and new", because of the Pinboard styling (which quite frankly is literally become the new "look" for virtually every theme created in the past year or so) I wouldn't quite say anything stands out particularly unique looking. (although it looks nice :cool: )

    4. I would use several of them (in fact I think I have already... How old are these themes?

    5. None I can think of off the top of my head

    6. Banners to your homepage/money site vs. adsense only on tumblr whereby you'd have far more leverage to monetize in an array of ways.

    Such as selling direct adspace, WP theme referrals/commissions, CPM and of course adsense as well.
    However, you could also rotate ads and determine which were doing best on certain pages of your site (i.e. theme download pages, etc)

    Good Luck!

    Looks great from here. A part of "minimalistic" went over the macbook image and the dark rim made it invisible. Otherwise it's pretty fast and looks great.
