for a first attempt. Your site is easy to use, free of typos and spelling errors (as far as I could tell from a quick tour), and has potential for development.
It would be better hosted on its own domain name, so visitors didn't get the irritating bravehost ads, and if I were you I would remove the link to your server stats - there's no reason to show them to everyone. Whilst on that subject, I'm against having hit counters. They serve no real purpose, apart from branding a site 'amateur', and they don't reflect the true situation anyway - I was able to notch up the figure simply by clicking the 'home' button from other pages.
I don't like the background much either.
Otherwise, well done - tweak your site, develop the content, and you have something that will be of value to people in your target audience
