What Do You Think???

August 25, 2008

I’m experimenting…. opinions????

I would clean up the sidebars a lot, but I really could use a theme with another sidebar for my BlogHer ad (they said I had to move it up higher on the page)….

If you guys hate it I’ll move back! But I kinda like it…

Oh, and I can change fonts too if you hate the font..

OK OK, I think the consensious is clear!!!

I like the pictures at the top, but it is a little wide, which for some reason, I don’t really like.

I like the other style better…it just seems more upscale or something to me? I don’t really like the writing font on this template…but that’s just me! It’s fun that you are experimenting though! :)

I like the new layout a lot, but I am not wild about the photos up top, but it may just be that I miss my beloved brussle sprouts. I like the side columns on each side, it gives it a cosy feel.

I think you need a picture of food at the top and not flowers!

Nothing shows up for me on the left side until I browse wayyyyy down. Which is annoying, and I don’t like that at all. Other than that it’s fine and that could just be my browser window. Is that where the ad is going to be? I’m so confused.

I think it feels kind of squished. The other layout had a more “home” feeling, which I liked. But I would still read the blog no matter what of course :)

I like the other one better but I like the two columns. Decisions, decisions!

Ok, that was weird, I saw a different picture from what I see now LOL Does the header change images or are you just testing different images?

I do like this new format and I like the pics of the berries on top – very fresh and natural :) But, I liked the old format too. So, I guess that is not very helpful.

Nothing shows up on the left side for me until I scroll way down either. I’m not fond of that. And maybe a different, more food related picture on top? Just my opinion. I’ll still read it regardless but I’m not loving the left sidebar being down lower than the right.

I like the old one better, it was much cleaner and easier to read. and i agree, it looked more professional.

Definitely liked the other site better. It was prettier because of the colors and picture at top, easier to read, and I liked the format of the comments much better. Maybe it’s because it’s new to the eyes, but it’s so busy! (Sensory overload…)

I like the “clean” feeling of the new layout, but I think I need some visual definitions on the sidebars (everything is grey). Not that I know how to do any of these nifty things… :)

I vote for the old one back!

I liked the old site a lot better.

I agree that I like the old site better! Sorry Kath!

yeah I definitely like the old one more. This one doesn’t suit you well. It’s more “boxy” The green color seems to fit you well. I’m guessing you really like the color.

Yay, the old site is back! This one is SO MUCH easier to read–especially the comments and the older posts! :) And I think it looks a lot nicer too.

Well you guys rule the house!!! The new one (which I sort of randomly picked) had SOO many cool features – SEO, color changes, more space for pages, subscribe to comments, and more.

But I guess a simple look is the preferred vote!

Thanks for your feedback :)

Kath

(For those who missed it, I put up another theme for a few minutes for fun).

Kath, I miss the cute pic with you on your cool new bike! I totally missed seeing the change, bummer!

Thank goodness the old one is back… I guess that I am not good with change or something, but the new page kind of stressed me out a bit.
Wow, I am officially WAY to into blogging…

23 Deb August 25, 2008 at 3:31 pm

OH I’m sooo glad you said that you put up the new format for a few minutes, because I looked and looked and looked and SWORE I couldn’t see any difference between the old and new!!!!!!! :-D

I guess I’m too late to see what the new theme :( I can’t see a pic of you anymore, Kath, is that supposed to be happening?

25 HangryPants August 25, 2008 at 4:16 pm

I completely missed the theme switch. Bummer.

Hi Kath!

I have a “food” dilemma……..

I am a college student and my schedule on Tuesdays and Thursdays consists of seven straight hours of class.

Besides making sure I eat a filling and good sized breakfast, do you have any other tips? Like what kind of snacks (that are easy, and portable) I should bring?

Thanks so much!

Have you ever thought of adding a third coloumn? One on the left and one of the right. I finally figured out how to do it. You can email me for the simple HTML code if you want. :) ps – just another thought. Have you ever thought of a friends of KERF widget? My friend just helped me make one for my site. i thought it was a cute idea. I can send you that code too if you want. :)

You have a BlogHer ad up? I don’t even see that at all. I use FF for my browser.

29 Kath August 26, 2008 at 12:19 pm

Katie ,
I’d love a second column on the right – does the code do that?

Andrea ,
Yeah, it’s right under the helmet photo. I use FF too and I can see it??
