    Post Personal website

    It is not quite completed yet, I still need to add a few pages to it and some PHP to it, but I just want some critique on how it looks, and if there is anything I could do to make it better or more appealing. http://www.geocities.com/hurloonman
    And I am sorry it was posted on geocities, I was in a bit of a time crunch and I am not quite aware of any other free web-hosting services.

    it is that way becaus eeof the crappy code that geocities adds to the webpages, if it weren't for geocities it would be 100% valid

    @ jalarie: I'm not sure what you're using to validate, but the w3c's validator shows the site as valid (other than the extraneous Geocities code that gets added to the site).

    @ hurloon: Looking good so far; my main criticism is that the contrast is a little low and therefore the site's a little hard to read… maybe bumping up the color scheme a bit could help?

    Right you are! Once I pulled their junk, your page validates perfectly and looks quite nice. Nice job.

    Would there be a website where I am able to see the readability and what I might be able to change to make it better

    I noticed a slight error on your about page under "About Me":
    Well, by now you might know who I am, or perhaps you are finding out as you read this page, but still, I am who I am. My name is Joshua, I was Tampa, Florida in the United States on 9/10/91.
    If you read the last sentence, it doesn't make sense. Looks like you forgot a word in there.
