One of the speakers at Bloggy Boot Camp Chicago was Cynthia Wheeler (aka @napwarden) who addressed the issue of blog design. She stressed white space…white space…white space.
As you can tell from the new blog design, I took her advice to heart.
I really loved the green blog, but more than one person has told me that they didn’t like it. It’s hard to get over a dislike of a color! I know–I still flinch at the color royal blue after my Catholic school uniforms!
But I’ve had the old design for a few years and felt like it was time for a change. I asked some trusted Twitter and real life friends to evaluate the blog and tossed a few logo designs past them. This is my interpretation of their advice.
What do you think? Does this blog design make you want to stay and peruse? Does it make you want to comment?
Blogging is a hard thing to do. For me, the writing is the easiest part. It’s getting readers to comment and engage that’s my struggle. If anyone has any suggestions for getting more comments and conversations going in my blog, that would be wonderful!
Be honest! Tell me what you like and what you don’t like! I’m open!
