the italic smaller words are harder to read then on top of that its highlighted. and you have several different colors for them.

to not have so many email addys. you can use a simple form where you can let them choose the question like on my site http://stormydaycrafts.com/ . all of the different questions go to one place.

i think there is sound on your site.. i have foxfire and it was just making a couple of chocking noises and then it would stop.

your site is easy to get around keep up the good work!

Hi Mayank

I can see that you have made progress on your site.

My suggestions are as follows:
1) If you are going to make custom navigation, repeat it on every page of your site. Your site is a bit confusing to navigate at the moment.
2) If you are going to create custom navigation, click the "Edit Menu" button and drag all your pages "out of the menu". Having two nav bars is confusing.
3)I would remove the highlighting and steer clear of italic font for your homepage. Both these formatting options are intended to give emphasis to a portion of text. If you overuse it, it loses it's impact and makes the text difficult to read.

I look forward to seeing how this site develops. Keep up the good work!

Hello Mayank,

just following on from Monique's statement about using the same nav menu. You can use the "save as" function to copy a preformed page which can contain all the repeating elements. Then you simply add the varying elements. It is a fantastic tip and saves all the time that is precious. This tip has come up many times by many users. I can tell you that it is Monique's concept going back to when she was even younger! So thanks Monique and I'm surprised you didn't put it in!

Hi Mayank

Peter's suggestion was for all your subsequent pages on your site. On the page you pasted the code and have your navigation menu, you can use the "save page as" to create more pages that will also have the navigation menu. This way, you don't have to keep copying and pasting the code onto every page. Then just add any new content to your page.

Hi, I looked at your site. I like the blue navigation bar but I don't like that there is another sub-navigation bar underneath it. I also don't like the multiple typefaces and use of italics and highlighting on the main page. The content seems alittle bit out of order too.

I clicked the "suggestions" page and it loaded slowly and something popped up across the top. There are three chat boxes which seems a bit much and it's a little bit overwhelming. Maybe make a page called suggestions and another called chat and separate those boxes. it should load faster and be less confusing.

Someone mentioned that you have too many email addresses but I do have a solution for that. There's a free site called www.emailmeform.com which allows you to add a contact me link and you won't be bombarded by spam. It's quite nice.
