It just never looks right

I am messing with my blog, trying to make it look better and all that jazz. But it just never seem to look how I want it. I don't want to give up my links, as I use them myself.

any kind suggestions are welcome.

ok, I think I can live with this set up. The top of the page has links to the ezines and blogs I write for, link to the blogs I read, as well as my most popular posts

I like the layout better; this is much easier to read now.
As far as looks, I think it looks fine but if you still don't like it maybe you could try some contrasting colors. If you notice, ALL of the elements are blue or a similar shade; gray, denim etc. Tans or light browns are about opposite of blues on the colors wheel and this might give it a nice kick; similar to how red and green look good together.

ok I kind of like the color, but it might not work well on some peoples eyes.

I like whats "IN" your blog more than what it looks like, but thats just me! Oh, whatever you do- Don't loose the Picture! I smile every single time I see it!

Phelan said...

Yes the picture stays. I have already been screamed at by other readers when I took it down once.

SkippyMom said...

I remember when you took it down. I wouldn't call it screaming but yeah there is a strong preference for that pic' over others. I would take it as a compliment because wasn't it you that took the pic?

I think it is hysterical and it makes me smile too when I see it.

Like a lot o people -- the only part of your blog I see is the RSS feed --so the layout of the blog is fairly inconsequential.

well, I always found the blogger layout to be problematic, but since thats what you have to work with, some ideas would be to make a seperate page to put all of the links and blogrolls on and pull them off of the front page to clean it up. That way you still have access to it, and so do your readers, but it doesn't clutter up the main page. Also on your header can you move the text up or down any? or is it stuck where it is? I would say move it down and make it red or some other bright color, or move it up and make it white.

Phelan said...

I was thinking about that. It won't tell me up dates on that page, but I can see them on my profile page.

Header is stuck that way. I played with it, placing it in different area, in different colors, this one seemed the best.

Phelan said...

I think the blogs I read shows up on my public profile.

SkippyMom said...

Sorry, my apologies Phelan. Cute.

When I said you I meant it is your own personal pic' as in it belongs to your family. Not something found on the web.

Thanks for the clarification.

Phelan said...

It is a cute butt, isn't it?

:D

I really like this layout better - esp the tabs across the top. Blue is good for me as well.
