    So I have started to really get into web design, and thought I might make myself a website to help advertise my services. Tell me what you think.

    Also, I am getting quite a few errors on my forms (they work fine, but W3C validator gives me warnings). Could someone take a peek at the source and let me know what is wrong?

    Thanks!

    Ok... Going out on a limb here, might seem harsh, but I'm more of a realist than anything... So here goes...

    You say the validator shows errors ... The one at the top of this page identifies the errors and explains them in detail.

    If this were just for a personal site... I would try and explain the errors... BUT, you're wanting to do web design for others and have them pay you for it... And you can't look at the validator errors and see the problem ?

    So are you expecting others to troubleshoot issues with sites that you may be designing for others ?

    Again, not being harsh, being realistic... If they seem the same, sorry, but there are a lot of people here that spent a lot of years developing skills and learning the basics, and I doubt my statements seem harsh to them.

    There's more to web design than wysiwyg editors, and other peoples templates... Way too many people think they can use both and build a business.... Not that easy.

    Thanks for the feedback, I wouldn't consider it harsh. You're right that I should be able to problem solve by myself, however I am in a bit of a pickle when it comes to the form errors because I thought for sure I was doing it correctly. The validator is telling me I can't have "input" tags inside a form all inside a div?

    Also I don't use WYSIWYG or templates, it is all created with HTML, CSS, and a pinch of PHP.

    good start, but:
    -present the items in the home page in the same order as it says under your logo
    -use only one form, having multiple is confusing

    1. I would change the fonts a bit.

    2. Dont use 2 forms. Use one form and load tweets or other info instead of the second form.

    3. Make the form(s) at the bottom more web 2 like.

    4. Try and keep more than 1 testimonial. Use jquery to rotate it.

    Cheers.

    Did you write most of the markup or was it generated? To much inline styling. You should at least finish all of the other pages before putting your "design" under the GUN.
    I have gotten into the habit of not judging other designers/developers work, but this is my Microsoft Meandering time so I'm MEANDERING...

    Oh, almost forgot: spammers are gender-less parasites...

    I wrote everything, but where are you seeing inline styling? It is all external.
