    Hey all!

    I was hoping I could get some feedback on the design.

    And, I am working on the issue with the slideshow embed on the photos page.

    Nice design, I like the big header-font you used for your name and welcome. Why don’t you use that same font for the header down there above the text? Right now it looks like your site is departed in two parts, a serf-part and a sans-serif part. Try to connect both parts with eachother.

    Your images need alt tags so that users without images know what all that text it that you use in the images. Nice looking site though.

    You are using tables on your site. this is a no no. You should learn to use css. It is much better. You are also missing a doctype. this is also a no no. Those are two things you need to fix. other than that. It’s a simple yet clean site.

    Thanks for the feedback everyone! I am definitely going to look into using CSS for the tables. I’m still learning and your feedback is really helpfull. @cybershot: do you know where i can learn a bit about the CSS thing?

    Thanks!

    I was having a battle with myself over that as the font I used is not going to be on the majority of computers. Do you think I should use a font that is more common, but looks similar? Any ideas on what it could be? Thanks!

    you can learn alot about css right here. Watch the videos and google the crap out of css. You can also download free css templates and play with them. see how they work. Here is a very good reference for css styles

    My favorite spot for learning CSS was w3schools. I also bought a few books (or borrowed them from my library) like Zeldman’s book and one by Christopher Schmidt. Also, a big inspiration was the CSS Zen Garden and just coming up with new ideas coding them and working with the code.
