Nice blog, Hemal. I think you have a great layout, and it must've taken ages to design/implement. I liked reading the posts too, because being a non-techie, it's good to learn something new.

Just one suggestion, though. I felt that the title of each post was being displayed in too large a font. Perhaps, if you feel so, it could be reduced. What say?

Thanks Sumit. The Design is not orignally mine, I have to agree. Its a WP theme called Pixeled. I had tweeked it a bit here and there. 

I had purposely increased the title text as I felt it was looking good with the over all layout. A lot of ppl have told me about this and I think its time to heed... Well, I would bring it down a bit and lets c.

Hi Folks,

I have changed the font size of the title... Hope you like it more now!!!

I am used to a resolution of 1280 and hence, I felt it looked cool...

Hey! Love the design but I suggest that the fonts be changed to something more beautiful, if you may. Verdana, Trebuchet or Calibri :) Otherwise, awesome design and unfortunately I cant hide my apathy towards your topic of interest - Economics :(

Hemal Shah

Thanks Anup... I like the Georgia, and feel it is readable. I feel this font goes well with overall design. Trebuchet may be an option, but it is second choise only after Georgia. 

I hated economics in schools and colleges, and do it now as well. Economics is not the interest, it is Economy. A blog from a common man's view. And yes, i am the common man.

@Hemal,

I will not ask you to change the font size of the headings, as that has been said earlier.

I liked your template, and specially the flash tag cloud. Is it specific to WP, or can I get it for my blogger account also?

One suggestion - give a line's space between "Share and Enjoy:" and the icons - right now thwy are kind of overlapping.

Keep blogging

Thanks Hasir for your comments... The flash tag is for WP, but you can get similar one for Blogger also i think... just google it.

let me see if i can change that... it is a plugin i had installed from the WP directory...

Hi Hemal, Just came back from your blog and I have to say that the theme is very catchy but for me the white on black is a little harsh on the eyes, especially when you are reading difficult content. And I also got distracted by the many icons under the article. But that's just me.

Your writing style is like a news reporter, very neutral and unbiased and I like that. Will surely visit again.

And web designer and content manager - very enviable, would surely come back to you for design advice very shortly.

Do add your two cents for my work at http://tandoorilounge.wordpress.com

Thanks Ashwini for your review. Yeah, have been thinking of changing that theme for some time now, but you know, I am so soldout for this one that am hesitating myself. But sooner or later, you will see that change...

I don't know about my writing style, but if you like that then I am so very happy.

Hey Hemal! 

First, great title to ur page. I was digging for a title like this. strikes quite an impression, yours..

I really like the tag cloud widget. Is it one of those adv of a self hosted page or is it available for the .com pages as well? do let us know.

Read some of your posts, liked the LMN one as I can now look forward to tasting a new drink when I return in July. thanks for the info mate.

nice layout, the hues of blue and green seem to compliment the darkness quite well. makes the read a comfortable one. 

Nice page!

First, Thank Varun for your comments.

The title was in my mind for more than 4 years, and started useing it for my blog only after i saw Lata Ventakesh's show on CNBC. I was thinking that it would be odd till that time...

The Tag Cloud. It is a flash tag and hence, as i know, you cannot use it on the Wp.com blogs. Limitations, you see.

Hope Nimbooz sticks till the time you come back! :)

and thanks once again for comments...

Hey your blog template is really superb

But the content is confusing to read me

My opinion is it will look very better if u remove social bookmarks on home page

Hey Srinivas, first of all thank you very much for reviewing my blog.

I would like to know more on why you felt confusing. This should help me to improve. I will think about removing the social bookmarking from home page.

Hi Hemal,

I've to say that personally, I would like the title of the post to reduce by a LOT! Right now, its a bit jarring.

Loved the flash tag cloud so much I got myself one too! :) Also picked up a photo widget to display my sketches and graphs more prominently as you suggested.

Like the numerous sharing options you've provided. Especially 'Digg'. Again, could the size be reduced a bit, especially since you've got some pretty short posts. Also, aren't the number of options provided for sharing a bit too many? How many get used often?

Can't you have the google friend follower kinda thing on your blog?

Overall nice work! Will be visiting often. :)

Hemal Shah

Hey, thanks for keen observation.

If you want to just reduce the title, I suggest just buy a domain name and link it to Blogspot. That would save you hosting cost.

Sharing Options: I have a global audiance and different people use different sharing options. So, I dont think the need to reduce it. Even though most of 'em are not used too frequently, I would still want my visitors to have the convienience of find their favorite right there!

I have a hosted Wordpress. So, I dont know if I can get a Google Follower thing on my Blog. If so, would give it a thought.

Thanks for your ongoing interest in my Blog...
