I agree with what @Watson90 said.

One of the things we learn (mostly) as we get older is that ‘less is more’. Making gradients (for instance) less intense / subtler reduces the overall ‘shock’ value to the viewer the first time they open your page.

Websites are about content. The presentation should be used to enhance the content and if the styling is SO drastic that it drags the attention away from your content then you’ve fallen at the first hurdle and people won’t stay (or come back) to hear what you have to say (or sell).

Given my understanding of your age, I’m really impressed.
