    Help me spice up my content pages (please)

    Hi there - After months of avoiding it, I've decided to try and finish up the design on my website. (Stupid work always taking all my time )

    I've pleased with the index page of the site, and I think it looks pretty good. But the content pages are..lacking.

    I'm not looking for advice on the index page, as I'm pleased with how it looks. But, as you can see, the content pages need some very, very serious work. What would you do to spice up those content pages? If you have an idea of what would help bring them to life, please let me know - Examples appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    Put the content in a GUI-graphical looking table, and set the table so it's about as wide as the nav menu at the top, from the links.. Not full-page width..

    Any examples of a GUI-graphical looking table? I've got absolutely no eye for design, and would make the site plain text if it were acceptable to do so

    Thanks for your thoughts.

    I know the feeling of trying to flesh out the inner pages after having all that freedom on the index page.

    You could probably get away with mostly text on the inner pages if you constrained the width like your index page and focused on some simple typography (and colors) for your headings.

    Maybe this will help with some inspiration:
