Ok, so I haven’t put this in Item Discussion because it’s not an item, it’s something personal.

Before I get this coded up, I’d just like (if I may) some feedback from you Themeforest folk.

Homepage: http://cl.ly/image/3d36392Z2w1C/o Post Page: http://cl.ly/image/1Z2J0G3r2x2N/o

The site (if you couldn’t already guess) is going to be a travel blog for my friends and I when we set off to travel the World in a few weeks. We’d also like to use it to drive some income.

Income sources will be:
  1. Google Ads
  2. Affiliate Commissions (travel guides, travel insurance, backpacks etc)
  3. Youtube Ads

Because of this, I have put focus on the newsletter opt ins (to drive repeat traffic and increase ad earnings), heavily focused on ‘resources’ (or affiliate products) and included a more noticeable link to our Youtube videos (although these will be posted as normal posts anyway)

Is there anything I have missed? Anything you would change?

Any feedback would be very much appreciated :)Thanks.

@quickandeasy: you may update this thread,because is in “ThemeForest” forum instead of “Item Discussion”. Anyway, is a great design!

@Ivor: About the template, where is it? I can’t see it in the list of recently approved items.

i think you need different background and some work on typography (specially colors on heading and main content)

I think it’s great. Only thing I would change is the white shadow on the black text in header, it’s too strong really.

Really nice.

Maybe there could be tiny bit of polishing on some of the typography but that’s nit picking. Also personally I would not have a border around all of the email update blocks, but that’s just me.

Looks great

I think the typography could be improved. It does not really seperate important headlines.

And I see some inconsistent padding and margins :)

Thanks for the feedback guys!

@ Minimalthemes, I’m not dead cert on the colours yet either and I will be updating the background. I’ve kept the same pattern but reduced it’s opacity and scaled it down to 50%.

@ Turkhitbox, what is inconstant padding?
