Your site looks great, Mark! :)
No issues on the optin form on my end.
However, as part of your sign-up form, don't just say “Subscribe to our Newsletter”. You have to include something that shows value and tell visitors that by subscribing, they’ll receive great content, savings, deals or other great stuff. In order for your visitors to willingly give their email address, you need to answer the question “what’s in it for me?”.
I also recommend that you add the signup box to all of your pages (not just on the homepage). You could put it on your sidebar and at the end of your blog content. Once someone has finished reading a good article, they are likely to want to keep up with your upcoming blog updates. Placing it on all of your pages would drastically increase optins.
