How does it look now
www.freelancebusinessman.com
I redid the logo, but can't get what I am trying to figure out to work, I am trying to set an old looking page as a background for the div tag with the main text, but I don't think it's possible I set it, but it doesn't stretch to match the words, I can't resize the image that much or it explodes, I am going to try something else, how does the logo look now though.

Honestly... bad.

The photo is blurry. The text along the bottom is hard to read... a CD just doesn't provide a valuable/professional feel as a logo.

you need to just slow down and think it through. You've posted about 5 different things within a few hours looking for a critique. Spend a little time on something first and then post back. Anything that you throw together in a couple minutes is probably not going to be that great.

what do you mean by cd.
What do you suggest as a "logo" because I see a lot of people use a lot of different things. Some people just use pictures, some people have words, what is a good definition of what is defined as "good" and "bad". I am thinking of a few ideas. I am no graphic designer, so it's hard for me to put those ideas into action, I am also about to take that idea, about getting a piece of paper, and a pencil, and creating a basic layout, and try to go from there. But I am still confused on the basic stepping stones. Those are the weak points I still have, I am trying to figure out, I have built websites before. For clients, not many but a few, and overall they seem to come together well, I know for one, when I looked at myself, I am weak in css, I thought I was better than that at css, so I was reevaluating some material on css, I was having difficulty doing something so simple as putting a picture into a div tag, and have the text look like it's being put onto the backgroundimage. I am readoing my css training some, then I am going to sit down with some paper, come up with a theme, and what other elements I am going to try and work with see, what all I can creaet.

and about the last post maybe I should sit around and thinka bout what I am going to do, it's easier for a client. But I need to create a plan, and try to build it after that, I will try and start on that today.

Sorry... goddamn work proxy is caching too much. The business card/pen thing is definately a step in the right direction! Now we're getting somewhere.

Thanks then, I am going ot keep the pen, because I am going to base the rest of the website around it, I am going to try an old scroll, type look for the div tags. I will work on all of that, and put the link back here again.

I am stepping away for awhile, I was hoping to get some advice on the website. I know 100% that I am keeping the logo now, and I decided to do a lot more than i was originally considering. I am going to have my ethics on website programming, coding, design, and other things. I am going to have a section with free resources, like links to all the websites I have that are free, that I use as resources. Possibly I will be accepting submissions after it's up and running for tutorials, and how to's but, and I don'tknow what all else, I am a little worried about losing business, but I may be considering a section on advertising, where people can post ads when they need something done, not just web design related, but the bad thing is, I may lose a lot of business that way I am unsure whether I want to do that or not. Right now I just wanted advice on the main navs coloring theme. I am going to put status bar messages in there with javascript, and preload the image, I am also going to do something major with php on each page, I am just thinking about what. I will most definitely be accepting submissions from other designers about there ethics, and morals when it comes to coding, design, programming, and other website related fields. I am unsure of this too as it could also pose a problem getting business coming in, but I will do a lot as I intend to pour back a couple of thousand dollars in advertising once I finish my first few products. I am adding in meta tags, and optimizing the keywords after I finish the home page,
