Default My New Online Business Idea

Hi everyone. I'm new to the forum here, and found it through thejenn's "Zero Dollars" series that I came across while looking for promotional ideas for my project. I'd love it if I could get some feedback and ideas.

dailyshirts.com - (Not trying to get business, just feedback)

I spent 3 months developing the WordPress-based front end (mostly spent integrating and modifying plugins). Once I got that set pretty much the way I want it, I spent 10 days strictly adding content (following the concept of the site) and only this week have I begun actively promoting it.

So far (since Tuesday) I've gotten over 230 unique visits and sold one shirt. That's actually exceeded my expectations, as it's kind of an unproven idea, and it needs to build up a following before it will be really successful.

Anyway, I won't ramble too much because I don't want to color any feedback that might be forthcoming, but thanks in advance for checking out my site and letting me know what you think!

I'm glad I found this place!

After viewing your site, here's my suggestions...

1. Get rid of either the "Highest Rated Seven" or the "Most Rated Seven" -- to me, it's redundant and having visitors scroll so much isn't a good idea.

2. All of the images in the center of the site should be reduced by at least half; again, to reduce the scrolling and load time of your site.

Lastly, since you're using XHTML in WordPress, your coding has produced the following 163 warnings that should be fixed...

Code:
