If you want my frank opinion, I think it needs a lot of work. Which of course you're here to do, so that's alright! :) I would improve the appearance of the website. Learn about basic design principles and color theory and then use CSS to get the desired look. For example, the red and blue in the table are pretty striking and don't work well together. I also see you've used bgcolor to get the background, and that shouldn't be used anymore. Use CSS for all appearance related things, including the layout, and avoid inline CSS as much as possible (I saw your CSS file was empty). I would also create a more grid-like layout, instead of putting everything on top of each other. A simple layout is fine, but it should still have some structure. Look at various other blogs and websites for inspiration. I also noticed some random mistakes, such as: 1. <th> elements should still be inside <tr> row tags in a table 2. Using <span> tags inside <h2> or other headings is pointless 3. Instead of a <p> tag with the class "quote", you should use a <q> tag for quotes or <blockquote> for blockquotes 4. On line 11, there's this: "<MJ22</p>" which I'm sure is a mistake 5. Your form is missing a closing </form> tag
