The Cost of a Facelift

In this case it was free, but it took me forever! Like my new look? I'm still tinkering with a few things so suggestions are welcome.

When I clicked out of bloglines onto your site, I didn't think I was on the right site. But I like it!

Great! Love it!

OOOO weeee! love it
One suggestion, when I go to a specific post, such as from bloglines, I don't get the option for comments, only trackbacks

But I do get the comments options once I am on the main page.

Niiiiiice! One thing to is your title in the header bar is nearly invisible if it is in 'followed link' color.

Madame X said...

thanks all!
Dawn, that's weird about the comments, when I go straight to the post i get the option for comments, but not trackback, just the opposite!

I like the new look but I agree with Seattle, the title link is too dark.

IRA said...

Nice. But I agree with Seattle Simplicity. The link is white on the main page, but washed out when you click on a specific post. Also agree with Dawn. If you click straight to the post, you have to scroll all the way down to the last comment to see the option to post a comment, whereas the trackback hyperlink appears right at the end of the post.

Wow! What a change!

I'm sorry for not singing in unison with others, but I'd make background colors of side 1/4ths at least slightly different compared with center (2/4) column. Otherwise the whole page is toooo white. Somewhat boring, compared with your previous template. Sorry about that ;-)

Dare I say anything contrary, mistress? *lol*

Seriously, looks good.

looks great!

I love the changes! Any advice for a new blogger looking to get away from the "canned" templates? How about to increase traffic?

thc said...

Looks great! I've been contemplating an update but I just don't have the time.

Nice!

It takes time to work out the lil tweaks, but overall it looks nice.

Nina Smith said...

Looks fabulous!

I like the new design!

Bao-Long said...

Sorry to be the party pooper but I am not a big fan of the new design. I liked the fact that the old design was much more streamlined and the fact that it had less colors. You now have to make abstraction the 2 side bars on the right and left to be able to read a post and all the different frame colors are distracting. Finally, I miss the green which fit very well a money blog.

my 2 cents,

Bao-Long
