WTF!!! o_o

Anyway, keep trying. :) By the way, aren't you planning on creating annual updates? It is a blog, after all. :p

Suggestion: Remove the sidebar. Add more images to your content. If you keep the sidebar (most specially that it doesn`t have anything to contain anyway), it will just make your blog EMPTIER than it is now.

1. It has nothing to do with GPT Sites.
2. its so plain.
3. Aren't you trying to attract people?

hmm... make some adjustments, like just what joshua said, remove the sidebar if you have nothing to place there, and add some images such as logo of those GPT sites that you are blogging about. get some templates there aare lots of them on google. :D

make your blog more appealing.. :) view this one for example. :)

lol...just blogwalk :) and you'll find some useful tools that can make your blog more appealing.. :) and also that content that matters because the readers would find your site/blog interesting with the contents alone, the impression of wanting to visit tommorow is a ++ for your blog/site. :)

WAAAAYYY too many words on the front page. If I were to find your page on Google/Bing/whatever and see the front page with all that text, I'd be turned off right away. Add some pictures, change the font, and some paragraph headers. Also get a domain name since it will look nicer.

Yeah. Break it into different paragraphs then have some type of header that denotes it is a new paragraph. It would look nice and give it less of a textual feel. Example:

Who we are
tadsfalkdflkajsdfjaTEXTHEREasdfadsfadf

what we do
asdfasdfasdfadsfasdfasdfasdfasdf

how it works
asdfasdfasdfasdfadsfadsfasdfasdf

Like that, but you could use images, different colors, bold/italic/underline, etc. It will give the page more flair.

oh and for SEO purposes, bold key words in your text. Search engines give more value to bolded words (from what I hear).

I agree with Trahm about front page. Also have some form of multiple pages with a menu for Example:
Main
Blog
Contact me
About us

or something like that.

Also have a Categories widget like thing so you can search through post using tags. Maybe a Donate and Twitter widget. A archives widget is almost like a must have. Also have a big and beautiful RSS button. Also add google analytics to you´re blog so you can see very detailed graphs about visitors.

Also maybe increase the font size in you´re posts by a little bit.

great ideas so far. I've been adding more "life" to the blog by puting some more pictures and banners and a couple more post. From time to time, take a look at the blog to see some of my edits. I love the help. If you have anything else to chime in, pls don't hesitate.

ok so I just made all/most of the edits that you guys recommended. Is the site looking good/decent now?

People like pictures, try adding some.
A bit simple, but nice, though, I haven't read the content.
