    I'm thinking about getting rid of my big clunky website, and made a new more simple one. Do you think this is too simple?

    - The Home page is almost impossible to read.

    - Each page looks different from the next. By this I mean, there's no consistency.

    - Facebook widget is partially positioned over your map.

    - The bright green footer looks good. I'd have it on every page, which would help with the consistency issue and provide a place for your contact info/NAP.

    - The header, on each page, is a bit of a visual train wreck.

    I agree, the homepage is very hard to read.

    Thanks! I will try to make those changes. On my computer, the facebook like isn't over the map. I will check on a different device. Do you think I should take it off?

    So I took off the fb buttons except the one on the first homepage, and now I am working on changing it to make it more readable on the homepage. Thanks!

    I see you are using a go daddy template.

    You need to optimize your pages. Your home page just reads home in the browser which will mean it will show up on google/yahoo/bing as home

    And all the other pages.

    I am using go daddy, and they have a new website builder that I am just learning to use. I will have to change that in navigation buttons I think. It is completely different than the builder I used for my first site through them.

    Thanks for the help:).
