Just launching the new site for my new company, http://geek-easy.com. Opinions? I'm not a webdesigner, and plan on having one work on it in the future, but I believe its acceptable for starting up.

Not sure I understand what you mean about the fonts, or things being blurry. Maybe it looks weird in a different browser? What browser are you using, if you don't me asking. I'll keep working on it, its just a working prototype, for now. Thank you for the honesty though!

For starting out- its not bad.
A few comments-

-a favicon is a must

-you need to edit your <title> something like

-"read more" is a bit hard to read, consider using white

-Heading may stand out more in white also

I do like the mouse in the search bar.
But the site as is- looks fine enough to look legit.

I like the concept of your site, each category broken down in short to the point blocks.

Finally got around to uploading a favicon. Not really happy with it, but its something, for the time being. Hacked the theme a bit to increase the font size of the "Read More..." button, and make it white so its easier to read. Goal is to get the header more legible and easy on the eyes today. The theme I'm using doesn't seem to have room for a logo, so I'm in the process of modifying the background to incorporate our logo. I also have plans for right underneath the mouse search box, to incorporate a similar style icon of a phone and envelope that links to our contact page. Really not sure how to edit the <title> though. Its wordpress, I assume its probably somewhere in the main index.php template, but I'm not sure what to look for. Thanks guys, been a real help. As for what Tech1 said, I can't seem to recreate the "blurry" issue he was having. Tried different browsers, operating systems, resolutions, computers, etc etc. Even browsershots, the site he recommended, doesn't seem to display the same error. Maybe he caught me in the middle of changing things, I dunno.

Site looks good, I like the layout. The only thing that I would mention is that the main page seems to display fine, but the other pages the font is blurry.
Here are a couple of screenshots that reflect what I am seeing, view them at full size.
