I decided on impulse yesterday to buy and install the Metro theme. I had my existing theme for over 2 years but the Metro theme just won me over straight away!
I would appreciate any feedback that you can give.March 4, 2013 at 4:43 am #24015

Nice job! My one suggestion for a little more pop? Change out the orange theme color for the red which you have in your site title.
Metro is my personal favorite theme right now, so I understand why you’d be won over. I like the flexibility of the social buttons, too – you can add as many as you like without needing to search for images, etc.

Thanks Susan, I changed the colour like you suggested.
There are a couple of other things I want to tweak but like you, am really happy with the overall effectMarch 5, 2013 at 5:32 pm #24444

I love websites that are clean and easy to read, yours is no exemption. Very nice!
One thing, you might want to center that logo there seems to be a little more space on top of the logo than ont the bottom or might be the way you made the design
Great job!March 10, 2013 at 6:31 am #25292

I’m also looking to get metro, but first I wanted to see what people are doing with it.
Gotta say I love your header.. your g from blog falls out though.May 17, 2013 at 12:25 pm #41409

Congratulations with this. It is really good content, which is the most important thing. Interesting words that are a pleasure to read and lovely photographs.
I think the header is a bit dull, and being black with so many other black headings and rules on this theme it is lacking contrast. What about a header from one of your lovely pictures? This would hold the site together a bit, especially if you made it quite deep.
The other point is that all the posts are the same size, so it is a bit fragmentary and lacking in emphasis. I would suggest a nice big picture from your most recent travels at the top, or better still a slider.
These are very minor points compared with the whole, however.May 18, 2013 at 3:03 pm #41536

I might change the “about me and my blog” to something like “Why should you listen to me?”
If you aren’t having fun you are doing it wrong
