This actually started out as a senior project in high school. Now I'm furthering it and seeing how far I can get with my site.

http://www.websitecrud.com/

It's pretty new and I'm really happy with the layout. The content and info is mostly for beginners but I'm trying to not being too lazy and update and add more content for experienced webmasters (i.e. the SEO section only talks about those old meta tags... :( ).

Anywho, it's only around a month and a half old and so whatcha all think of it so far?

there's a LOT of white space, which is good, but it's not utilized in a way that promotes the likeness of the site design. The blue links on blue background are hard to read, and the rollover or "hover" color of the navbar links is dark red against blue - very hard to look at as it strains the eyes.

the ads are far too obvious, making the site look somewhat cheap. Try to set them up so they integrate better into the site. Take for instance this forum - if you look to the right of the page you'll see all the different categories. One of them is "Sponsored links" and has a few google ads. You almost wouldn't even know these are ads because they flow with the design.

There's a lot of space below your content, not sure why.

The navigation links need to be more centered i would say.
Also i think the text line spacing is too small for the font size in the main dialogue.
Hope this helps.

I personally think the steps should be this.

Step 2. Figuring out which platform to use Unix (PHP) or Windows (Asp.net) An unbiased reviewed of the Advantages and disadvantages of both.

Step 3. Learning HTML

I spent some time on your website as I am thinking of re-building my Internet security website. I liked the content in your site - a good place to start for someone new at web building. I thought your layout is nice and clean. I like the white background. Keep up the good work. It was a pleasure to visit your website.
