    I have a blog on BBQ cooking that I haven't done much with in the last 2 years and my son is interested in adding some content so I updated the badly out-of-style theme to a more modern responsive theme. Before we start adding new content, I would appreciate anyone's comment on the choice of theme and how I have implemented it.

    The theme looks good, it is user-friendly and easy to read the content on the site. Changes that I would consider are listed below;

    It would probably help to have a graphic logo designed and added to the site.
    There is a lot of white space in the header area, placing a banner ad to the right of the logo, may improve the overall appearance of the blog, as well as help generate some additional revenue.

    Overall it looks great and I hope it goes very well for your son.

    I don't know about your previous theme But the current theme looks simple and clean to me. It's light and good to be viewed. However, I would suggest you for a good Logo at the top. Else, the blog looks nice to me.

    I love a good barbecue!!
    Fergal is right, there is a lot of white space at the top. Change the css style sheet or header to move the content up and add some more graphics. A nice roasted pig on a rotisserie could be a good idea for your logo!

    There is ALOT of white space on your blog/website. I'm not a web designer, but I do browse through tons of websites.

    Things that catch my eye:
    Colorful backgrounds(Avoid black or white for websites in my opinion)
    Pictures/videos
    Website header

    Most of the time if the website doesn't look like someone knew what they were doing or is badly designed I bounce… the only exception is if i'm looking for something business related on google. I usually read the article, if its REALLY good content I might stay… but first impression is a big deal in drawing in customers/visitors.

    It looks like a lot of wasted real estate at top. Also, have you considered using a slider to feature your primary pages like "Equipment, Recipes, etc.) It may make your home page look cleaner and easier to navigate if you used a static page.
