    I just checked the overall design/ article and video.

    Everything looks good and in a professional way.

    I only noticed the site and image loading speed is bit low, I'd recommend you to use CDN network for fast image loading and boost your site speed.

    It is good, I like the design and the articles are great. Videos also.

    If you know HTML then I recommend to do something about the Amazon banners, when I clock on them they should open in a new window.

    I would say 9/10.
    The design is solid, love its colours!
    But you need to fill this empty space:

    I really like the site!

    Colors blend well and are easy on the eyes. I don't see the empty space the above user Is talking about, maybe just a browser Issue (unless you fixed It)? I'm using Firefox by the way.

    Thanks for all the useful replies.

    1 - I have looked into the white gap, it's now filled with news items/videos.
    2 - I'll look into the Amazon banner issue today.
    3 - I'll also look at improving the speed of the site.

    Any ideas on how to market/bring traffic to a technology based site?

    .... I have tried a lot, such as Facebook PPC, On-site SEO etc.
    In the next few days I'll be opening a YouTube channel focusing on the latest Tech news/rumours to try and attract more visitors....

    Any other ideas on how to attract visitors? thanks.

    hey the design looks great.
    the color needs little improvement.
    Full white is not looking that great.

    Everything else is good.

    Well I think it looks nice. It's a lot nicer than most of the sites that I've seen on here. You were changing the colors and logo right as I was looking at it lol. I like the old logo better but with the new color (brighter blue).

    The only thing that bugs me is the area on the homepage with all of the pictures (Accessories and Tutorials). The big white blocks with the text seems like a bit of an eyesore. The boxes are covering up most of the image. The largest image doesn't look bad because the white box isn't covering up most of the picture. I hope that makes sense. There's just too much there covering up the images.

    I read one of your articles and the writing is really good. I think you're off to a great start.

    Oh yeah, the images on the homepage seemed just a little laggy when I first loaded your page.

    Very attractive blog.

    But it take long time to upload.

    Otherwise, no problem in your blog.

    Hi guys,

    I have installed a few cache/optimize/database plugins.

    Loading any quicker? Or is there more work to be done? e.g. server enhancements?

    Thanks.

    It looks quite professional but it still needs some fine tuning I guess (sidebars?)

    It looks very professional, a little complex but that's OK.
