Okay so I started my new Ubuntu blog, Its Basically Joomla with the Blog engine of word-press. I am looking for ideas for the design or even suggestions for the features. Maybe just some feedback?

Though 2 things already listed in my mind are a better logo (Thats a Temp that I made in gimp in 2-4 minutes) and of course once I am done the content will be starting to flow.

Other than that I don't have much Ideas.

BTW I use Gimp,Inkscape,Gedit,Phatch and Joomla.

Thanks for your time!

Hi,

Looks okay. Nice and clean and bright. Not that much clutter either. I personally think the orange you have used is a little too bright though. Thats just my opinion though.

BTW, I have spotted a spelling mistake in your poll.

"Yes! I herd of it,but I don't use it "

Logo needs work, very rough around the edges. Apart from that, it's ok, non-offensive colours and layout. Get yourself a soft gradient for a background, see if you can implement some drop shadows, basically just polish.

Thanks Guys! I am working on a new Logo already. Ill see about the gradient,other than that I am already done with the graphical design. I am wondering is its too heavy?

Is it me or does the large image at the top seem to cut the blog in half? I could be wrong of course :D

Nowhere close! You have plenty of breathing room there.

Okay,but I already scratched out the Idea of a gradient. Also I am going to add a RSS reader of my fav ubuntu blogs. Any other Ideas are welcome though.

Hi,

You could move the search bar. It looks a little out of place in its current location in my opinion
