    Website Updated - Would like some feedback/opinions

    Well I've updated my website! I'm still not sure about all the colors or the layout, but I think its an OK start. Just looking for feed back as far as aesthetics, layout, ease of navigation, any typos, etc etc.

    Thanks in advance!!

    I think it looks great. Simple, and profession. I really like what you've done with the cornsnake collection page.

    It's a good start, but pretty light on the pictures.

    Matt,

    I think it needs a better font and some more excitement. Maybe that can be done through use of color. Simple navigation is nice. What did you use to build this? Let me know if I can help at all!

    Do mean light as in the gallery is incomplete? Or light as in I need more snake pics throughout the website?

    I'm still working on taking pictures of my collection. Have about half the corn snakes, and none of the ball pythons though. So the gallery will be a lot bigger when its done.

    I used RapidWeaver. I had about two weeks of HTML 10 years ago in high school in a computer class, other than that I know nothing about web site building. So for me, this is an easy way to do it, especially since I don't have the $$ to have someone do it for me.

    And I agree about "the excitement" part. I'm just not sure how to make it "exciting" without making it too busy or tacky or beyond my abilities.

    Matt,

    It may seem like a small thing - but I like to know "who" I may be buying from when I visit a breeder's site. No where on your site, is your name mentioned. Perhaps on your About page, you can work in "my name is" and then continue on with the rest of your information.

    If I didn't know you from here, I'd probably not contact you if I came across your site, because just based on your site, you're anonymous.

    Edit - whoops, nevermind! It's on the first page! Duh! That's what I get for reviewing it before a full cup of coffee!

    I also prefer to have a # to contact somebody at if i'm going to be purchasing from them, even possibly an address depending on the value.

    Yeah, its there as you saw, maybe I should try and work it to be more prominent.

    I have it on the "ordering" page, similar to my name, should I rework it to make it more prominent?

    Yea, I would put it on the contact page, along with your first & last name. I would also make it a bit bigger, and top center of the page on contact so its very visible.
