Your site looks good, good colors and layouts, font size is ok on my PC. There are a few good articles there and I am reading them, obviously you are a cool programmer with good knowledge about Java, PHP, Python, Javascript, Perl and Regex. I really like regex too because it helped me in programming, also using it on any tools to make advanced searches easier.

I would you add padding on these parts

and promoting some articles on the blogs of this forum https://forumweb.hosting/blogs/
everyone can know more about you and your skills.

I have to agree with Moose, some parts of text are cut off and horizontal scrolling on code is annoying. I think it would have a cleaner look with a white or off white background.

Just my 2 cents :think:

I do agree with you too LJSHost, I'm working on fixing the source code block so they can be warped.

Seem the problem on your blocks are not fixed.
You can not fix if you still use fixed height on your blocks, you can increase height for your blocks and using this code

Code:
$trimexcerpt = get_the_excerpt();	
	$shortexcerpt = wp_trim_words( $trimexcerpt, $num_words = 10, $more = '… ' ); 
        echo $shortexcerpt;
If you don't want to use this method, you can use jQuery Pinterest Plugins to make your blocks like this

Hello all,

I am starting a new blog with subject to programming. The link is http://kevinhng86.iblog.website. I have a mixture of my own content plus others contents. If you have a chance please check out the blog and see how my design with the colour scheme is. How is my font size? Thank you in advance.
I visited and checked your site, it is pretty new and your pages are not indexed by search engines.
You should submit to Google/Bing webmaster tool to drive a little traffic to your site when someone finds information related to your articles.
In other words, you should not use green and red color on a same page.

Thank you for visiting my site and yes you are right it is still pretty new. I set the site up on the 15 or so. Still writing a lot of content for it. This site I compose with my own coding tutorial plus news from programming related article. After I finish writing my own 20 posts which is in 3 or 5 days. I will be doing a subject on making a plug-in for Wordpress. Thank you all for visiting my site though.

Thank you for the comment. I am planning to use the main website to create a blog syndication. Where I can look for other authors to join me and create a full blog on all subject. For now I can't set up the system yet. One author can't write much, and does not attract that many reader but if we have many good author on a varieties of subject I'm sure the blog can create some traffic if the content is good the amount of traffic one blog get will most likely be share by the entire platform. How the system is set up I'm not sure yet. I have about 3 more subject before I can start working on the model.

My blog just got updated, need review, thank you.

Thank you everyone in the past week for stopping by my blog and review it. I also thank you for all the comments. I just entirely reworked the blog with a new theme. It would be great if anyone can come by and give me some opinion on the new blog. The old theme broke really bad. Nevertheless I almost finish a ton of article, will post a really useful library here the week after or two. On a second subject, if you have a challenge in web programming and need help, post it in the web development section, I will try to help. If the code going to be less than 300 lines I will help you. Else I will try to show you how to do it if I am capable of.

I like your blog and have read articles on it.

Are you a programmer or a web hosting provider?

On your blog, I would suggest fixing this when viewing on mobile devices.

View the image below and you know which you need to fix.

I like the content of your blog and read a couple of the articles. As for the color, I don't really like the gray that's used in the navigation bar and the footer. It makes it look strange since the top navigation bar is a bright blue color. If you changed on or the other to more closely go together then I think it would look more uniform. The text is ok but if it was mine I would go a little bit larger.


You have a lot indexed in Google which is good.
google.com/webhp?sourceid=chrome-instant&ion=1&espv=2&ie=UTF-8#q=site%3Akevinhng86.iblog.website


Overall though it does look good and the things I pointed out aren't critical.

Did you write all your articles?

Thank you Gecko for pointing thing out. All the articles in my post category is written by me. The news from external sources are imported in from sources that allow republish articles. For my articles, I currently only have about 50+, by the end of next week I will have about 80+ . Hopefully I can get 100 articles soon. Nevertheless though I am starting a blogging syndication on the subject of programming on a very reputable domain name, however still very new. I was wondering if you want to join or know anyone that like to write article in regard to programming tutorials and hints.

You are very welcome. That's quite a bit of articles so it sounds like you worked hard to build up the site.

I really don't know enough about programming to write any articles on it. Sorry but I just don't have the knowledge to write programming articles. I would help if I could but I am afraid that's just not something I know enough about.

Hi kevinhng86, Your English is _very_ good for a non-native speaker. I'm very impressed, but there are still some mistakes that make it a bit difficult at times to read your articles _quickly_. Also, I noticed on your page for different programming languages that you use the same image for every article, for example, all of your PHP articles use the PHP logo, which is logical, but also a little bit boring. You will probably generate more interest in your articles/tutorials if you use different images for each one. This is time consuming, of course, but it will make these pages more fun for your readers to browse through.
That being said, it looks like the content of your articles is very interesting. Your tutorials seem to be very detailed and thorough!

took a little too long to load from india, make minor changes to make it look less clustered, also the ad placements can be improved with a little more work on it. otherwise looks good to go

Checked the website, it loads faster for me. so good on load time. But I am sorry to say that the content is too much put all in one place. Please find a better theme. People come to blogs to read stuff, especially when it comes to programming blogs, readbility first. Make the content standout, which feels impressive for users.

Honestly, suggest to switch to a better theme, try minimalist themes that unclutter the blog and adds readability. I understand you need to put ads to mantain your blog and earn something, but retaining visitors is also important. At the current state, its hard for someone to read articles as the home page is quite filled up.

May be a better theme to try or adjust somethings. If you want to add readability try some themes from genesis, they are awesome when it comes to readability, people will love your blog.

See this https://my.studiopress.com/themes/smart-passive-income/#demo-full

If you cannot invest much at the moment, try to get free themes that are close to genesis themes. Readability first for blogs, as blogs are meant for reading.

We can have best content written by us in the world, but if it is not readble no one will care to revisit the website. See websites like medium and others, they became so much popular one main reason is readability.

I would feel happy, if you can change theme and work towards it. All the best.. just my 3 cents of advice.

Hi there, I noticed about your logo. It looks so simple and ordinary. Content are so crowded and I guess it is hard for us to read what do you want to make us understand. You should improve your homepage for better viewing and also improve the font. Choice of color is good but add some lively colors to make it alive.
