It looks O.K.
I think you will need a picture and a short bio in the margin, to connect with your readers.
People will hit your page and want to know who you are and why they should listen to you.
The header, just my opinion, looks to business like, IMHO your site should look like a personal blog.
A "guru" that I spy on and emulate a lot Ryan Moran started out with a simple review site like this,
Google Ryan's Reviews. for some ideas. See how you tend to trust him right off when you hit his page.
Another one that works for me is erica [dot] biz.
I didn't see where you were building a list, I would make trying to get an opt-in as top priority, you can promote products later.
Make sure the products that you promote are good, so your name becomes a trusted brand.
Some here will criticize me for using fake pictures but I have split tested and found a woman's picture and pen name gets twice the opt-ins in the IM niche as does a guys. A guys pic work better in others.
Traffic in the serps is hard to come by for the I.M. niches, but plenty to be had from blog commenting. (A females avatar in blog comments pull twice the traffic too BTW)
