    You can use :Simple Social Buttons WP plugin. it is free but there is only Facebook, G+ and Twitter.
    for the PR, irt is not big deal for the ranking.

    I like the design. But at the first view it wasn't clear about which topic this blog is.
    You could add a slogan or something to the header. ( As there is much whitespace for now )

    Too many graphics at the top. As someone said already it takes a while to guess what the site is about. I would move the logo iAppneto under the menu bar and add some text saying what the site is above. I would remove the 3 images running underneath the menu bar completely. It is too cluttered with them especially as you have a slider block under those 3 and then another 3 images under that too.

    You are wasting a bit of space in the header.Reduce the size of the logo to some extent.

    Too much negative space. Also it is a bit wide for a 1024x768 monitor; requires some horizontal scrolling.

    Change the sidebar to some text link or ads. You don't have to show the same image 3x.

    Looks nice. My only advice is to get a nicer logo.

    It loads fairly quickly, which is good. It is just a basic blog but it looks fine. You might want to think of more exciting ways to attract visitors.
