Thanks to the many (8) of you gracious voted in my "How Do You Like The New Blog Look" poll. While the majority (5) voted "YES! I like the new look! Keep it," I just didn't sync with the new look. While it was cool and all over the place (and probably very much resembled the look of my desk), I found it complicated to navigate. I wanted something SIMPLE, yet personal and custom.
So, I did some research. I learned that I had Photoshop on my computer (Thanks Melissa and Jack!). I previously was intimidated to use this software, but with some support, I created the new (simple, but fresh) header, and messed with the template colors on Blogger.
This is the end result.
I'm still deciding if I like it or not. I may mess around with it more, and go with a new color scheme all together.
I am still recuperating from the template change. As you can see, I do not have a simple way to access my comments anymore. (They are still there - see that little number above the post? It's probably a 0. Yup. That's the comments. Click on that if you want to leave a comment). I'm in the process of trying to reinstate the orginal commenting format.
BUT - If you can find the itsy bitsy number above the post to click on, I'd love your feedback on THIS new look. We'll see if this one sticks!
