    Review my blog please.

    Please review my blog. I want suggestion to improve my design, usability and also visitor's experience. I just want to know if the ads placement is killing your eyes, how's the navigation, too much white space, incompatible with this browser and so on.

    Constructive and critical comments are welcome.

    feel ok about ur blog there.
    ads placement is fine.
    dun feel u need that big feed subscription button. may just need a text link at the bottom for ur RSS.
    why not consider put the feedburner button instead

    I think theres too much white space...

    But that doesnt mean you fill it with ads...

    Too many ads all over the place is not nice at all...

    Maybe you can install a My Blog Log and Bumpzee visitor tracking in the right hand.

    And put up more pics in your posts...plus occasional video.

    I love big buttons So, what you mean is that it's too distracting? Ok, I will try to work on it...

    Feedburner button is too small, and plus, my subscriber is so little, nothing much to show off :P And yeah, I did put a text link at the bottom, if you see my footer, there's a link named "Subscribe Me".

    Hmm.. white space is bad? And there's too much ads on my site? Robot says ad placement is ok, and you say there's too much ads, who should I listen to? Yes, I know lots of ads kills user experience, I myself is a blog reader too

    I tried installing My Blog Log on my sidebar, but it kinda kills my website layout. I'm still thinking where to put it.

    Anyways, I've removed my datakl hosting aff link, and I've changed the google ads size to a smaller one.

    Any other comments? Other than content-wise...

    I never said your site has too many ads. It can do with more ads. But just to advise you beforehand that you shouldnt fill every single white space with ads

    As many people dont like too many ads to be shown..

    Maybe you would also like to make your text size smaller...and opt for a three column layout.

    Ah.. Sorry for the misinterpretation.

    3 Column Layout? Hmm... I always wanted to do that, but I don't know what to put on my 3rd column!! Hahaha!

    3 column usually used by those hardcore monetizer blog to maximumly put all the ads they could put their hands on.
    if you don't have much things to put, just make it look simple with 2 columns. Its cleaner.

    I haven seen your blog yet, read your reply to whoever commented to your blog. I guess you're not really wish for comment from the others. But just wanna show other that's your blog and wish they say how good is it. But it doesn't matter. That's every webmaster / blogmaster wishes their visitors can praise their website/blog. Forgive you :P lol..just kidding..

    K, wait now I've check your blog. I guess the white spacing is cause of your too white (bg) without any layout like what the robot said, 3 columns. Seperate them with 3 colums..1st and the 3rd can be the same colors. For a basic blog, normally they use strick or lining for the first and 3rd column. the 3rd column, you can display all the ads as well.

    For a professional look and special blog, you can refer to this blog. Not mine, but It really impressed me alot.

    Guess you will learn alot from that: The way it display the subscribe, ads and so on.

    I did some minor changes, and still I'm not opting for a 3 column design. Among the changes are:
    - Remove the excessively big "Subscribe Me" button.
    - Gradient to the header.
    - Fixed width, 2 column, not so 800x600 friendly :P
    - Created a homepage.
