Hi all, nice to meet you folks, have been here reading on your topics and I have enjoyed what you have written and your issues so first thing I would like to say is thank-you.
My buddy and I have started a website, we are novices and this is being done mostly in fun, but there is some honest to God pipe dreaming going on. What I would like from you is if you have the time, give me an opinion of what you think of this site, from the short opinion pieces you see(more to come), to the t-shirts and if you may know alternatives to cafepress. Thanks for your time, look forward to seeing opinions.

Not got time to visit the site right now, but I'd just like to say that that is a bitchin' t-shirt. Dude. Rock on.

Every sort of expert knowledge and every inquiry, and similarly every action and undertaking, seems to seek some good. Because of that, people are right to affirm that the good is 'that which all things seek'...

Just visited the site and must say that it looks great. I like the blunt attitude, the design is simple but functions smoothly, and your mission statement rocks. Some of the shirts might not go over well in public, but people will buy them anyway. Good job, and I'll be back to read the editorials as time goes by.

From a purely stylistic point of view, don't use fonts with a serif (the little pointy bits on the ends of letters).

Serifs were developed to help people read on a printed page more easily. They aid the eye in scanning across a line of text. Unfortunately, because a screen is made up of flickering pixels, serifs on a screen just confuse the eye and so make large portions of text harder to read. Putting your articles in a non-serif font, such as the popular Arial, will make it easier for visitors to read through the whole article.
