Your link below (in your sig) doesn't work. As many members responding to this post will probably point out, web 2.0 is not about how a website looks, it's about user interactivity and user generated content and so forth. Unfortunately, though, so many people have become accustomed to saying "web 2.0 style" that I believe we now have to be come used to the idea that web 2.0 is, separately, both a style and a method of user interaction/content generation/etc, despite what the aforementioned members might say.
As I said web 2.0 style is best demonstrated, in my opinion, on http://www.cssmania.com.
Well heres a live version of the site and whats actually wrong with my layout how can i give it a 2009 feel to it?
I can play the guitar, but I'll never be able to write a good song....no matter if someone who can tells me exactly how they go through the creative process....you have to have eye for design, fortunately, when it comes to the web, I think it can be learned (but not taught) - I am basing this on the fact that I think I've developed one somewhat and I used to be absolutely horrible at it.
I can just point out that most of the time (but definitely not all) fonts on websites should be sans-serif (arial,verdana,tahoma,etc) not serif (times new roman,goergia,garamond).
Also, the box images on the left side look kind of silly with beveled edges.
Padding is also key - nobody likes content that goes to the very edge of its container.
All that comes to mind when i look at your design. Good luck and don't forget to check out http://www.cssmania.com if you haven't already.
