    I have a logo and 20 more pages of content on the way.

    Really missed the header, logo, top menu...

    A comparison table would be great on the homepage. Having that four 5-star reviews doesn't really help your visitors. With a comparison table you could lead them to your preferred site's review.

    The reviews seem to be okay, but I'd definitely change the content beside the screenshot. You're wasting precious space by posting general blah-blah there. Summarize your experience with the site, write about its benefits, etc.

    You should format your reviews correctly: separate paragraphs, use punctuation marks, subheadings, bullet points. I also missed bold texts that should grab my attention. A clear CTA is also missing at the end (and maybe middle) of the post. A pros-cons list also would help a lot.

    As the site is pretty new, I'd change the permalinks asap. Instead of

    HTML:
    http://paidsurveys101.co.uk/archives/reviews/paidforreviews-co-uk-review
    you should use something like

    HTML:
    http://paidsurveys101.co.uk/reviews/paidforreviews/
    http://paidsurveys101.co.uk/reviews/survey-madness/
    I hope it helps ;)

    Ive used this theme before, in the Orange block header I created a logo that I added to the left and on the Right I added a small banner advert, maybe from adsense or you could create a banner with aff link.

    TL;DR Use the top orange banner.

    You waste space on your top, you can put banner ads, that area had the best ctr.
    and your homepage looks so "stiff"

    The overall theme looks OK to me. But remember that the empty header does hurt your readership and I deem that space as very valuable because it is above the main eye-path. You are losing money leaving out that precious space, trust me.

    Paidoffer.co.uk review is like you copied and pasted its review there. But the review seems good to me.

    I look forward to seeing improvement(s) on your website soon.

    I'll check the rest of it out once I get back from the pub.

    Lol. But on a serious note:

    The website gives me an impression that you're letting the theme do all of the creative work and you're just worried about adding content. Content (TEXT) is good, but it can't be 100% of your focus. YOUR SITE has 4 seconds to captivate its readers before they decide to leave. There are grammar and punctuation errors, which chips away at your site being an authority figure when it comes to having an online presence. That's all I got from the 4 seconds I stayed on the site.

    But, I want to commend you on taking action. Setting a plan and moving in the direction of a goal. You have accomplished something many readers don't. I wish you the best of luck and success with your journey.

    Honestly the site doesn't look too bad at all. But I agree with the other posters there is a lot of wasted space that you aren't utilizing properly. The more avenues to money-making pages you display above the fold the better. I would download Firebug and use it to get rid of some of the padding in between the boxes, get rid of the slanted stripes underneath your logo that's just a waste of space, make the logo smaller and utilize that area in the top right.
