What I find to be a crucial part of blogging, as with life in general, is communication and willingness to be interactive. Both blogging and life are better when experienced with others. I'm not here to talk about some grand life lesson, though. (I'll save that for another post.)
I like to think of the blogosphere as a tight-knit community made up of a bunch of lovely and brilliant individuals (who will eventually run the world with our charm and ambition... and glitter). Being a community means there's support, honesty, opportunities to give input, perspective, respect, and a helping-hand ready to be lent when needed. With those factors in mind, I have a request!
For you longtime readers, I'm sure you're aware of my new look. For you newbies, well, I changed around my design and layout a bit. I'm stumped by this transformation, though. I felt the need to make a change, but now I'm undecided which template I like better. Both have elements I like and that could use improvements.
Major Changes Made:
Margins (vertical lines to nothing)
Font color (black or pink to greys)
Accent color (pink to yellow)
Popular Post section (small photos w/ text to the side to larger photos w/ text underneath)
Lighter grey has since been darkened
Font type (Times New Roman to Verdana)
Font size (larger now)
Balance of pretty & bold
Favorite color combo- yellow and grey
Clean & minimalistic
Cookie-cutter/nothing too recognizable
I made both designs myself, so it's hard to pick and choose a favorite; especially when both have pros and cons. So I'm hoping you could help me out here by taking a second to answer the poll to your right! If you have any suggestions or comments, leave them below! I value your input. Anything will be helpful!
Thank you!! :)
