Need Your Input!

I'm thinking of ditching the current look of the blog. Summer is gone, fall is here, winter is coming soon (at least in my neck of the woods)... so I feel like I need to get a new look... maybe... Do you find the links at the top of the page to be helpful? (Home, Awards, I Support) Is it time for Eternal Lizdom to have a more permanent and individualized look? Can you recommend someone who does that sort of design work? Is there anything missing from the blog that you think there should be more of? Anything you think there should be less of?

Having JUST gotten my blog made over, I am totally in favor of the personalized layout. And I wholeheartedly recommend my designer, Susan. You can find her at http://blogdesignsbysusan.blogspot.com. She's great to work with and quick, too! And super affordable.

And, to be honest, I didn't notice the tabs at the top. They kind of blend in. But that's just me.

It's funny, when i first found your blog, I loved the layout... so much that I ended up altering my own slightly to look a little more like yours! (Okay, that's just our secret, k? LOL) Seriously though, I wanted wider columns for readability of my posts - I always hated most of Blogger's narrow columns. Because of your layout I was able to modify my own, and I must say I'm pretty set for the long haul with mine. I don't have to worry about season changes, and I would recommend you find an image or art for the headline...something that will have staying power and sort of be your marquee (I think that's how it's spelled!) The photo I took of the sunset that became my own title photo seems to go perfect with my writing style (hope is the message!) and brand.

Okay, I've blathered enough. I hope it helps. Whatever you do, I'm certain I already like it!

The clouds follow me everywhere I go....it's a little creepy.

But seriously, I remember seeing the links at the top more before, did they change a little? because now they're harder to see than I remember. I think you would totally rock the personalized design. I say go for it!

btw, my anouncement is coming sooner than I thought, just can't contain myself!

Okay, ignore the part about the top links, the page must have just loaded funky. They're good and visible now.

@ Strange Mamma GOOD! That isn't the kind of thing to keep to yourself!

I'm gonna check out http://blogdesignsbysusan.blogspot.com as mentioned by Karen.

I too love wide columns. I had itty bitty photos and narrow columns. My layout is wide and I hacked the coding to make it a little wider.
