Looks great! You have obviously put a lot of thought into it.

The 'How to use your time wisely' panels look really professional. Your use of different colors and sizes for the date, titles etc. creates contrast and makes the content really easy to read.

Not sure I like the spacing in the Articles page. Feels like there is too much whitespace between each paragraph and maybe not enough between the 'Amazing life' heading and the paragraph below.

Also the 'How to use your time as well as you can' title feels a bit too close to the avatar and details above it.

Overall it looks awesome, feels very 'complete' and is easy on the eye. Be nice to see a working prototype or final version once you're done.

Hope this helps :)

Good to know!

This is somewhat a rough prototype, although I tried to do the best i could to make it as good as i could. Now I'm finishing the prototype, and probably today I will be writing a clean code, making everything perfect, hopefully I can.

I know what you mean, good to know.

Yeah, the spacing is killing me off on the paragraphs and headings. I don't want it to be too clumsy, and yet too far, usually in a lot of sites, their font is crap. Treehouse doesn't even have the best, at least from my computer, so im trying to do something that's good size. Well, treehouse forum has a nice size. I don't know. I'm on 27inch iMac, it's hard to judge the font size because i need to work on +150% zoom, and on normal 100% is very small. Ill see how it goes, good we have development tools to check it out, almost forgotten about it! Had a break for 2 months, oh well.

The spacing is going to be challenging.

Thank you for your comments, it definitelly helps!

Do you have any tips on what font-family i could use? or typography? i use Lato on this one, but not everything looks quite as good as i though it would. Lato is ione of my favourite, but i feel i need a different contrasto of typography somewhre, or something.

I agree having to think about different browsers and devices makes things way more complicated.

I think you may be overthinking it though. If you're like me, you will never be happy with it. You should try to make it 'good enough', and not worry too much about the small details.

Check out http://fontpair.co/ for some ideas - Francois One and Lato looks pretty good.

Hope this helps :)

EDIT: Also check out Buttericks Practical Typography if you haven't already.

Well, I think it could be done 10 times better, but on the other hand, I'm not a designer lol and that's just because i never spend so much time learning design and stuff, just a bit, enough to have somewhat clean desing like [here](aurelianspodarec.com) , i quite like that, but now the site I'm doing now is well, i just want to make it different lol but still neat. I guess i overthink it way too much. This is like, my 4th prototype of the design lol it just could be done better : d

but i did what i did,posted on TTH to see what people think, and if it's okay, then ill finish off it. I can always improve in future. Now the actual content is the most important part. I just don't want to have it 'too average' xd but well.. ill get alone with what i do now.

Thank you, and font pair is fairly nice, hopefully it's going to be usefull :)

Thank you for your feedback and the links :)

The lato paris are ugly tbh lol they are to narrow, or too wide or too bold, too bad xd

I think I start to do a version for launch.

Do you have or know maybe good CSS and HTML coding practices? or soemthign? with bootstrap maybe?
