Love the new look! I especially love your button. Who designed it for you? Fantastic!

Looking good Liz, nice and uncluttered :-)

One thing I've picked up on by hanging around the disability activism blogs is that using descriptive alt text for images or even captioning them with a brief description is really helpful for vision impaired people who might be reading. I confess I don't always do it myself, but if you're keen to improve your blog's accessibility that's something to keep in mind.

Also, I see you have a buttons collection - I have a button :-)

I like it! I like the followers on the side rather than when you had them on the top!

I would try centering the title image of your blog. You might consider putting columns on both sides to so that when readers come to your site they will see alot more if they only scroll down a short way.

On another note, I would offer my thoughts about your Pour Your Heart Out posting, but there is so much I have to accomplish inside myself. All I can say is just keep on keeping on. We're still here. We are.

Be good to yourself.

The about me should be at the top of the column?

@Katherine - My friend U8MyCrayons did my button for me. You can find her blog in my blog list. :)

@Mim Good points on accessability. I confess I've not thought much about it. And I went and grabbed your button!

@Nancy Me too! I haven't liked them at the top for a while but there was some weird Google issue a while back that started the at the top trend.

@Seth I centered it! I had wanted to but couldn't figure out how- same for the page tabs. Finally found the right spot in the html code. I had 3 columns and liked it. Tried it with this new layout and it just didn't feel right. And thanks for your support. I know you are doing your own searching right now...

@Garret Done!

I love this new look. It feels so crisp and it makes me want some lemonade or lemon meringue pie!
