    From a design standpoint, it hurts my eyes.

    Gray text on a slightly darker gray background makes it very hard to read without really trying to get up and personal with my monitor.

    IMHO, there is too many gray variants too close together, and certain important areas aren't well defined. Meaning, in short, that when you first look at the page, there isn't anything to draw your eyes to. It all just kinda blends together. Not until you really look at/study the page do things start to kinda make sense. For at a quick glance (no, the car doesn't appear to be normal) the site seems to be one big run together jibberish.

    If it were me, I'd be looking to make some separation of content, like posts from sidebar, and making it easier on the eyes.

    Definite kudos to validation though, and really it isn't something that's far off from being good. Just needs a tick more tlc and it'll do you fine.

    I'd say it's quite improved.

    I'd make it more obvious how to create a new blog at the site. Right now, that involves clicking on "You?" then filling out fields that are dark grey on darker grey.

    Thanks Andrew, i'll try to find something to make it more obvious, maybe with a line more 'get a blog'. Btw i've fixed the signup page with a lighter gray, thanks for the tip!
