Hello,
I have been working on the Southwoods Magazine Site for some time now, and we are expected to fully launch next month. The address is http://www.southwoodsmagazine.com

I am hoping to get some feedback. What do you like? What would you change? The normal stuff

Thank you very much for your time!

AAAAAAAAAAAAAH MY EARS!
My speakers were turned up full volume and I had some bird tweeting full blast. My head now hurts and I immediately closed your site.
It is a very, very bad idea to play any form of audio unless the user has requested it. For starters, my head hurts. It's also very annoying and I can't turn it off (at least, I didn't stick around long enough to find out how.) Another person in the room assumed it was a pop up.

I did not see much of the site, and will reserve further judgement: I will make another attempt to review it if you choose to remove the...birdsong.

yeah, i would make some large button that says, "Audio Off". A lot of people dont like any type of sound when entering a site.

Other than that, it was nicely done!

Yes, I agree on the sound part. However, it was my boss' idea and he seems pretty intent on keeping it. I appologize for not warning you though. Also, thank you for the honest feedback. I appreciate your time.

Having grudgingly disabled my audio, I have to say this:
Where's the content? There's two sidebars and a pretty picture, but seems devoid of anything...interesting.

you have invalid html markup, try to fix it:

http://validator.w3.org/check?verbose=1&uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.southwoodsmagazine.com%2F

then check if css is valid.

to much 'Southwood' in meta keywords, only yahoo and msn care of them
your target is "Southwood Magazine"?

about design, :)
you break many design rules, but to be honest I like how it is and I love few pages, the country cooking page for example, :)

PS: your birds wake up my cats, :)

best regards
