But it is the first site I have done apart from my own so views / tips would be useful.
Humm...The layout on the first page isn't that good. I don't like the left side menu links.
The colors aren't that bad but the menu could be blue instead of green.
Thanks for commenting on my website.
I did mess around a bit with the colors as the first pass was a bit hit and miss. I have a feeling I tried blue for the menu and it made it too much the same. I will try it again on my test site and see what it looks like.
It looks good but it seems that there is a lot of whitespace at the bottom and you can scroll a bit with nothing being shown.
Thanks for looking.
Yes it has too much whitespace at the bottom - I have put 500 pixels of padding at the bottom so can reduce it. However the original mistake was to have a white central column surrounded by a blue background. If there is not enough content in the central bit then it does not look good.
I liked the bright design of your site, but it was hard for me to read the basic text - I think black or dark blue color will be better for the text than pale blue...
A couple of things:
I would add some padding (or an invisible border) to the hover-state of the navigation buttons so that they don't move when you mouse over them.
Also the hover color would be better if it matched the background color of the header bg below.
The whitespace is also a problem. Are you using a set height? If so I'd suggest using an auto height:

6stringGeek - what does +1 mean? Maybe when I go to do this it will make sense.
Thx again. Sue

I have updated the site.
Comments have been very useful.
Many thanks Sue
