I seem to go in spurts - I add cool widgets to my blog, then go back a few weeks later and eliminate most of them to de-clutter!
I've done that too. It's hard! I want the cool ones, but I don't have enough space to display them all. What a dilemma. LOL.
Great post!I'm in the process of re-vamping my blog, so thanks for the reminder!As the saying goes ~ First appearances are lasting...
True. It was fun to re-design my blog. I had my first design for a year. This is only my 2nd design and it fits me pretty well.
This was cute and polite. I feel the same. If a blog is too busy its harder to read.Shellyhttp://secondhandshoesnovel.blogspot.com/
Yes. If I like the content of the blog, sometimes I will keep returning, even if it is hard to read or busy or they have word verification on (that one bothers me a lot, but then I think I shouldn't be so impatient).
So cute. I like that you mentioned no clutter. That's exactly how i like my space.
I checked out your blogs. They are crisp, simple and clutter-free. Nice.
I might be a little cluttered (gulp) but I have seen a lot worseHappy A to Zbaygirl32.blogspot.com
Your blog is NOT cluttered! I love it! The rocks and red sides go nice together (I'm partial to red). :0)
My site is quite cluttered, I like to think of it as lived in.moodMoody Writing@mooderinoThe Funnily Enough
Oh my, that's funny. I might want a clutter-free blog, but that is not how my desk looks. Glad you guys can't see it.
Great tips presented originally! Love!
Haha, cute! It's tricky to figure out the right appearance for your blog. There's always someone who may be turned off by some aspect, but we try our best.Shannon at The Warrior Muse, co-host of the 2012 #atozchallenge! Twitter: @AprilA2Z
Shannon, It was a little bit of a challenge to design my blog. I wanted it represent me. In the end, though, WE need to like our blog look since we have to look at it the most. :0)
I really liked this, Dawn. So much truth presented in such a fun way. Thanks, my friend!
Thanks, Pam. I had a lot of fun with the comics.
Thanks for the laugh. Great unique look!Happy A to Z-ing!ScribblesFromJenn
Jenn, Thanks! I'll come visit your blog next.
Thanks for stopping by my blog. I like the way you made the post into a comic.
Ruth, Sure thing...I love recipes! Thanks, I like comics...fun!
That was a fun post! That's about how I decided how I wanted my blog to look. Thanks for stopping by my blog! :)
Thanks, Christine. Doing the A to Z last year gave me a lot of ideas on how I wanted my blog to look.
Oh, good point about the music. HATE music on a blog that begins playing automatically. Playlists are fine but they should play ONLY if I click on them to play.Love the cartoons.
Claire, Yeah, music bothers me too. There has only been two times that I've liked the music. Once, I liked the music better than the person's site (so I came back to write down the songs/artists). The other one, I like the blog, so I go back. Her music choices are nice...I just turn them down low, so they aren't as distracting.
I love changing the appearance of my blog, but my header... it's awesome. :) Great post!
Your header IS awesome! I wouldn't change it either. Your blog title is cool too!
I agree with you 100% I love a clean, easy to read blog with a splash of oomph! I will back out of a blog with music so fast my own head spins. Can't wait to see what you have coming up next!Happy A-Z...ing.
Chautona, I know. Music bothers me too, especially if I don't have my speakers turned down and it blares at me! :0)
Love your cartoons! Looking forward to more!
I appreciate your comments! I try to respond to each one.
