You should pick up a book on web copywriting so you know what works well and makes websites look good. I read a book once called "web copy that sells" Although most of the book is geared towards selling someone something, there is alot of good information on how to make a website look nice and readable and even tips & tricks to getting people to stay on your page and read your other writings.
I'm guessing thats what you are trying to do...build an audience towards your website and eventually monetize it somehow, right?
I want it to look nice. I have already had a lot of tips and stuff. I was wondering as you are my target audience at least in part whether you like it or not. In terms of looks I was trying to make it look like serious cartoon style which is popular with economic and political blogs. In terms of monetisation I have held off advertising so far but I may in the future. The real aim is to get people reading my work and using the blog to show who I have written for like a CV. You have to admit having that blog with the articles I have written for so many different places is a wonderful thing to show to people working in that industry so it will help me get work in the future.
Thanks for the feedback.
