I say this quite a bit, but make sure to like your own facebook page, as it has no likes. As for the site, it's hard to tell what it is from the home page, so in the extra space next to the logo write "an awesome place to discover cool facts" or something like that to give the user a tase of what the site is. Also, on the right side of the home page, where there are links, such as "Secret Hide Files In JPG." Instead of having to click the text to go to the link, make the whole box a link. To make sure that the css verifies, make the div into a span and do this.
<a href='link'><span class='something'></span></a> This validates as a proper way to link. Also, for the style to this class, add "cursor:pointer;" Also, make sure that all of your code validates. Use this link, one of the greatest sites for coders everywhere: http://validator.w3.org. Great work so far and keep it up.

If you have time, then please also review my site: http://pearlsquirrel.com and tell me what you think. Your time would be greatly appreciated.

I followed almost everything you said :)

Thank you. Those were good suggestions. As for the Facebook like thing, I forgot to like it. Lol.


You're sites amazing too. Very well styled. Loved most of it. Would you be interested in any sort of collaboration?

Thank you very much for the kind words and for checking out my site. I would be very interested in a collaboration, what did you have in mind? I have a part of my site designed for affiliates; I could list your site there.

Hi,

IE9 uses Quirks mode but this is an easy fix:

Use <!DOCTYPE html> and add
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" value="IE=9"> to the <head> section of your HTML page. It will force Internet Explorer to use IE standards mode.

(taken from http://stackoverflow.com/questions/...s-compliant-mode-when-developing-on-localhost)

Apart from the rounded corners it looks alright in IE when it uses the correct rendering mode.

Also, it doesn't look like you've used <HTML></HTML> tags? Unless the View Source utility in Chrome is hiding them.

If I may make a small suggestion: I'd recommend changing the displayed username that's shown in the blog posts to something other than Admin

Thank you for all the help. I've implemented each of them :)

I don't know why the <html> tags weren't showing, try again perhaps? :)

That'll probably make more sense once I make the blog free for others to post too. Others in the sense accepted users.
But yeah, I'll change the "Admin" text :)
