Okay, sit tight... ;)

Good:
  • Simple theme.
  • I like the subtitle (but see not below.)
  • Good quality content that doesn't look rushed!

Needs improvment (in my opinion):
  • Not sure if Blogger supports this (if not, it should by now) but I would split your posts so you only get a preview on the front page and not the whole thing.
  • Pictures are a great way to break up walls of text and I suggest using one or two per post.
  • If you plan to reach out to search engines etc. you'll need to use a more descriptive title and subtitle.
  • I'd add an "About" and "Contact" page to help people learn more about you.

- On the bullet point one, I'll guess I'll have to find a way of doing that.
- Point two: Am limited to 3GB of Images and videos that I can upload, if I want more I have to sign up for premium account.
- Point three: I'll be most grateful if you suggested something as in more descriptive title and subtitle.
- Point four: I just have like two line of an "About Page" will certainly include the "Contact Page".

Thanks for the input. Still awaits your reply.

For this post the author Ang087 has received thanks - 2: Obinna Osobalu, Stu

Just a friendly suggestion ... if you're worried about the limited space. Divshare offers free accounts with 5GB of space for uploading videos, etc:

http://www.divshare.com/

Photobucket also offers free accounts for uploading photos and images to share.

http://photobucket.com/

Divshare allows you to upload videos that can be seen with a flash player and you can embed those videos to your blog.

- Point three: No need now really but as your blog shapes into a specific topic, I'm sure an appropriate title and subtitle will be on the tip of the tongue :)

Hey Obie, it looks perfect now, not to mention it has got an wealth of information. Soon I'll go through it thoroughly. Why not register a domain for yourself, say Obinna.com etc. It would really compliment your blog.

I agree with Jeet, it would make it easier to search your blog for sharing with friends, and new people.

Overall, I like the scheme and the layouts, they are amazing.

I will take a look through the entire page for any possible weakness I may come across.

Cheers
