Greetings,

Please help me review my new website: http://nidhikamra.weebly.com/

It's very basic, so feel free to provide helpful comments.

Cheers,
Nidhi

Very nice! Easy to navigate and informative.
I'd make sure to put content into the pages that have none before I'd go live. If you are not ready to blog (for example) I would not have that page until I had  blog posts. It gives a feeling of something that isn't quite baked, and that's not a good thing. If you want to make sure to have the pages rather than add them later, you can label them as something else and put some relevant writerly content for now.

I really like the colors and the graphics. I'm partial to the "Olde English" font on the side bar, though some might suggest a simpler one. But to me it says, "writer."
 :bow Again, nice!

Yay, Nidhi!!!

I love hanging out at author's websites and yours is off to a great start!!!

The categories you've selected are fitting and I like that an illustration of your debut PB is prominent on the home page.

When you are ready to fill in the blog section, I look forward to hearing more about your attending American international schools in Africa. Pictures, too, please!!! This fascinates me - - and might be great fodder for another book or magazine article...

Very nicely done. I also like the font on the left sidebar.

I also agree that until a page is ready to go live, to keep it as a draft so the public doesn't see it.
