Hi Guys,
I have chosen to redesign Fishing Time utilizing a clean 3 column template.
Do let me know what you think of the display and if it fits nicely in your browser.

I like the designing...simple and clean but will be useful if you have atleast 2 posts on your blog and then a more link for more posts. You still have much space your page.

And nice use of adsense I have seen.

Best of Luck.

I ran your site through a speed report (http://www.websiteoptimization.com/serv ... gspot.com/).

Your website is 177 KB! That is huge! Most web pages should be no more than 30 KB... and definitely no more than 100 KB. People with slower connections could just leave your site; most do after about 10 seconds.

I have fast Internet, and your header didn't load for about 15 seconds. During that time, I was thinking, "Something is missing up here."

Looking through your speed report, you should optimize your images using GIFbot (http://www.netmechanic.com/GIFBot/optimize-graphic.htm). One of your buttons is 35 KB! You can get it down to around 5 KB using GIFbot. Do the same on all your other images. A lot of small images on your site are eating up huge amounts of space. You may even want to consider getting rid of some.

See if all the scripts you're using are really necessary.

You haven't fully separated style from content, but you're using the XHTML Strict doctype. You have 199 errors on your validation report (http://validator.w3.org/check?verbose=1 ... pot.com%2F). You should either work to fix the errors or change to the XHTML Transitional or HTML 4.0 doctype.

Your CSS also has a few errors worth fixing... http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/vali ... pot.com%2F

If you clean up the coding and optimize the images, you should be good to go.

An orange link renders above/behind your text in the top part of the third column.

It might also be nice if the middle column/main content was somehow better differentiated from the rest of the site... I don't know but it looks kinda funky too me.

kudos :) have fun fishing
