    Since you asked for only one thing I would suggest getting rid of the hamburger menu on a desktop. That is fine on a mobile phone but I am not a fan of having one on a desktop.

    If I were to suggest a second thing it would be to explain more about the object of your site. It looks cool and interesting but more words would be an improvement and could help in search results as well. Usually it is recommended that 300 words on a page is ideal and you have 49. There is nothing that really explains the object of the site, what you want people to do and any words are mostly just talking about how many followers you have.

    All in all it is a nice site and appears interesting.

    Thank you for the response. I have changed the menu so that it starts out as visible instead of using a hamburger menu option to display it.

    As for content, I am working on that and expect to have it updated soon. Thank you!

    You need more images that are related to the page your site looks bland and uninviting. It get over 2 hundred visitors a day and your Alexa Rank is 3 million your site is growing. So If I were you I would make my site more appealing to my visitors by putting more vivid images on the site and maybe opening a store to sell related items.

    I'm not sure what you mean? I have ~15 relevant images on the homepage. Should they be larger?

    I'd make the top navigation bat more prominent, and add a drop-down to the Articles tab. Make it easy for people to explore your site so you can draw them deeper.

    5 second test!

    Making it look prettier is all good and well, but you need to hook your visitors.

    The 5 second test is basically...If people can't tell the following information within 5 seconds, they're likely to leave your website

    - Who you are
    - What you do
    - How you can help them

    It took me a lot longer than 5 seconds and a few clicks to work out what your website is for.

    Hope that helps
    Chris

    I thought it looked excellent. It loaded fast, the graphics and presentation were very good. Normally I would like to see the call to action not quite as upfront as yours is but in your business I think that is the perfect spot for it. Good job.
