Hi

 

I wasn't quite sure where to post this but after 2 weeks my website is now finished and live at www.tildavirtual.com.au

 

This is the second ever website I have designed and am feeling quite chuffed with my efforts.

 

If anyone has any comments or suggestions, please pm or post them to me, I would love to hear what people (other than my husband who has to say it looks good :P ) have to say.

Kylie, the site looks great. I do have a couple of suggestions so take them for what they're worth. Bookkeeping is one word not two so I would change that throughout your site. Also, even though there are many who spell "Web site" as one word, it is two, with the W being capitalized...learned this from our resident writing guru, Laurie Dart! I actually still catch myself typing it as one word a lot!

 

I'm editing this to add one more thing and this is just a personal preference. On your home page at the top, the first and fourth headings end up being two lines, so the word 'time' and the word 'you' go to the second line by themselves which makes it seem a little broken up. You should always try to have at least 2-3 words on a line when it continues so I would suggest putting a <br> after the word 'and' on the first heading and after 'the' on the fourth. I hope that made sense.

 

Other than that it looks great! I was viewing it in Firefox by the way.

Thanks Jaimee, the graphic designer who designed my logo came up with it after many lengthy chats about my vision for my business, my goals and my background. As soon as she said it I knew it was the tag line for me lol :P

 

Thank you Connie, I will have to change that in the morning, it is currently 1.22am Saturday morning and I am very tired :blink:

 

I kind of feel like I am in my bikini here hoping that nothing unsightly is hanging out :P

Hey Kylie,

 

I think it looks great as well! I love the pink and the tag-line, very original!

 

Cheers! :flowers:

I also noticed on your home page you use the word specialises. I think it's spelled specializes, but it might be different there in Australia :)

Very nice, Kylie!

 

A couple more typos: On your About Us page, you have capitalized all words in your former industries except Child care.

 

Also you have: "Kylie's qualifications includes" instead of "Kylie's qualifications include"

 

And the links on the bottom aren't formatted to be white like on the other pages.

 

I'd also re-work the layout of your contact form -- it's a little choppy.

 

I really like your logo, and I like the way you've used it as a background image. You might want to lighten the background image a teeny bit though to make the text easier to read.

Wow, Kylie, very nice website you have! Very clean and clear look, and the logo is really eye-catching. Hope it attracts more clients for you!

Thanks for all your comments and suggestions. I have been working on it daily for two weeks and it was very easy to miss a few things.

 

Hopefully tonight (depending on kids of course) I will be able to make the changes everyone has suggested so far.

 

Jaimee, we spell specialises with an s along with colour with a u and I think there are a few other words we spell differently here in Aussie.

 

Thank you so so much :yay: I am still pretty excited that it's now finished.

 

Kylie

 

Edited to add: Leanne, can you take a screen dump and email it to me to show what you mean by 'choppy'? Thanks!!

I agree, the site looks great and I love the colour. I think Kylie has done an excellent job - especially since it's only the second site she's worked on. I've also viewed it in Firefox and everything lined up fine - it might have something to do with different monitor sizes too. If that's the case Kylie you might want to look at fixing the web page size for viewing - I tend to work to 700 pixels these days for most sites I work on.

 

As Kylie mentioned we do spell words differently in Australia - rather than US English we use the 'Queen's' English so most words you spell with a 'z' like specialize, realize, etc we spell with an 's' specialise, realise, etc. And others like color we spell as colour. I have to remain mindful of that if I'm doing any wordprocessing for someone based in the US and that I use their way of spelling rather than mine.

Hi Kylie, what a beautiful site - very pleasing to the eye. Congratulations.

 

I hope you remembered to add in your key words in the coding.

 

Warmly

Caroline.
