i have tested it in IE 6, firefox, oper, and netscape
(all the latest of each)

i struggled with the two column layout quite a bit
but figured it out (i hope) let me know if it lines up.

more importantly what does everyone think?

does it look nice?
or look like puke?

does it look like a decent personal webpage
or one a 3 year old could be proud of.

1) please tell me issues in browsers
2) please tell me your thoughts on how it looks
3) please offer suggestions to improve i am just getting into graphic work so i lack ideas, skill and originality.

Ninja--- I LOVE IT!!

seriously, I think that's a great design. Very CSS Zengarden.

That's a very nice looking site.

Looks identical in Mac FF 1.0 and Safari and almost identical in Mac IE.

Nice clean layout, makes me want to drink coffee in a mountain lodge Smile

Only small criticism is the nav link font seems a little too big, like its trying to take up as much space as possible. Nit pick nit pick

Like I said, great site.

no i want nit pick!

thanks for the comments, i am struggling with the nav bar
to me it is a bit plain and do i agree it is rather larger.

yes it is inspired somewhat by zengarden and "zen and the art of archery" a book i just finihsed.

so it is not too bush league?
without a nice graphics editor i can not do much in terms of images

thanks again

this was my first web design attempt so i apprecite the thoughts

for a first site I'd say you knocked a home run.
Really? That's your first site?

I'd definitely invest or try to find an image editor (Photoshop if you can) as graphics will really jazz things up. And you'll probably want some photographic type images at some point.

I did notice that in FF your footer is floating way up in the middle of content on you "creations" page. Don't see it doing that on your other pages.

I will say that I'd try to put something else in your header image. It is a little plain. . . another nit pick.

my bad forgot the alt tag

it should be fixed in 3 2 1

and i have noticed the footer, however it only happens once in a blue moon if i am scrolling fast down the page.

i cant seem to replicate it enough to figure out what is happening

any ideas? it sometimes end up in the middle of 2/3rds of the page
but then sets itself back to the bottom

Really nice design. My only 2 small pieces of criticism would be: don't like the thick underline on your navigation links and the little flowery things next to the header of each post look very similar to the ones used on zeldman.com thereby making your site look a bit 'derivative', but other than that, great work.
