New Layout

Well I've decided to go with 3 columns, but I'm not sure if I like it.

Please tell me what you think.

Does it seem too cluttered/crowded?

UPDATE:

Ok, so it's no longer three columns and though I loved my original backround...I really like this one too.

I know, I know, such a big deal about what the blog looks like, what's the big deal??

Well, it is a big deal for me. I want all of my readers to love what they see when they stop by.

Hi Molly,

First of all thank you so much for your sweet comment today on my blog. It really touched my heart and completely made my day.

As for your blog...because I used to be in yearbook in highschool I will admit that I am critical. My first impression is that it does seem a bit crowded. Here are some thoughts:

1. I was always taught that there should be some sort of focal point on a page that really catches the readers eyes. This could either be your page header "Faith of a Convert" or the use of a picture.

2. White space is sometimes thought to be a bad thing, but I think it is very necessary. You want to make sure that your readers do not feel overwhelmed by everything that your page has to offer. Make sure the aspects of your blog that are the most important to you are also obvious to your readers.

3. Being simple is classy. If you decide to stay with three columns, which is not a bad idea at all, I would think about maybe making your background a little simplier. Instead of having the flower like decor, maybe go for a solid color or one that is not so busy.

4. Accent colors are key. Choose a color that you love that will really grab the attention of your readers. Then carry that same color throughout your blog to really add some warmth and flavor to your page.

P.S. Wow, that was a lot of ideas. Do with them what you will.

Holly, Thank you for the compliment. I really aprriciate it.

Heidi, Thanks for all the ideas. I think I thought it was time for a change, but I really like this backround & when I saw it was offered in 3 columns, I thought that would be the change.

But everytime I look at it, it bothers me, so sometime tonight I will put it back to normal.

I do like simplicity and I think that's what was there before...too much clutter makes me crazy.

Molly said...

Brother, I'm still on the fence, but thank you very much.

Heidi said...

Love your thoughts and I was hoping that you wouldn't change your background.

P.S. I think we are a lot alike when it comes to clutter.

Molly. Looks rather good. But I am biased, since I have 3 cols.

Try not to look it so much as "clutter" but, instead, as an expression of "high density" faith... if that makes any sense.

Molly said...

Thank you everyone for your advice & opinions.

I just had to go back though.

I guess I'm just not a big fan of change after all.

Heidi said...

Oh my gosh Miss Molly...I love it!!!! Your blog looks fabulous

Do my eyes deceive me? It appears as though those flowers on the border are practically cousins to the dreaded Mary Englebrecht. You will never hear the end of it from me. And no more knocking "M.E." to me.
