I'd suggest not using the "UK" symbol. in the states, that's a school's (likely) trademarked icon.

Whats with the CreditCard/PayPal Icons at the bottom of each page? I couldnt locate anything that is for sale on your site.

Overall the site looks passable. Content reads normal and navigating wasnt difficult. Might I suggest converting the site to a template on Wordpress or another site like WIX and incorporate your Blog into the site instead of 3rd partying Blogger.

Thanks for all this.

A few changes I will make:

- Remove the fairy and use a more vibrant picture
- Change the white background to grey
- Curved boxes rather than edged
- Remove the payment icons at the bottom

Yes. Looks like you grabbed the University of Kentucky's logo. You may want to use a "UK" symbol not so immediately identifiable.

If you have your e-mail address written in the source code like that, bots will harvest your e-mail and send you spam. Isn't "pixy" spelled "pixie" ?

There's no right or wrong way to spell it. Disney use Puxie so Im not wanting to breach that copyright name for a fairy.

I'm wondering whether you hand-coded the site or used a WYSIWG to create it.

Nevermind, I looked at your source code and discovered that you used an online WYSIWYG: one.com

That's correct. I don't do coding. I used to use Weebly but as one.com is my host I thought I would try it out and get more control over creating the site.

I like it.


Especially for a WYSIWYG.
