Opinion on site

I’ve just finished my [personal blog](http://www.bydbenjamin.co.uk) for a competition urdd. I would like your opinion on the site. Sorry it’s in welsh but I had too. Part of the rules.
Hope you like it.
It’s built in WordPress and the mockup was in gimp it does sort of require a css3 and html5 supportive browser.# December 12, 2012 at 8:55 pm
haha yea, that was a good one.
@Htmlmainiac – sorry that your post is going a little of course!
My recommendation would to tone down a lot of your elements. Really focus on simple and lean before you starting throwing gradients all over the place. Design is all about the minute details that bring elements to life.# December 12, 2012 at 8:58 pm
@TheDoc Personally, I’m entertained either way
The site is relatively good for someone who is as young as you are, but there definitely things that you can improve on pretty easily. As others have said, the gradients are a bit much. I would stick with a solid colour for the border of the content and a more subtle gradient for the page background.
In my opinion, I would put your logo all on one line, rather than having parts of your name higher than others. I would use a different font for your headings as Papyrus is a little (!) overused. Personally I like [Trocchi](http://www.google.com/webfonts/specimen/Trocchi “http://www.google.com/webfonts/specimen/Trocchi”).
So yeah, good job on the enthusiasm and good luck for the competition
