The background is extremely heavy. I think you should consider something tileable, which you will find for free at subtlepatterns.com
Also, you might want to think carefuly about you font choice because right now it doesn’t look professional. One font for headings, other for the body copy (since you want to use more than one).
You should’t offer a way out of your site immediately, you are sending traffic to WordPress above the fold.
Add a bit less image in the background and a lot more in the site, you should swap those tiny pics for much more appealing ones.
Hope you find it helpful :)
