Sprucing Up the Joint

I've been making some minor changes to my blogroll. Both Mr. Chips and Ogretmen are taking some time off from blogging, so I've temporarily (I hope) deleted them, but I have added some others. The edusphere is an ever changing place---and even if some of these blogs aren't new, they are new-to-me. There are a couple of other blogs out there which are "wait and see" for me. I like blogs that have new posts at least once a week---and preferably more. Even if the quality of the writing is grand, one piece every few weeks just isn't motivating enough to add it to my sidebar. I like my blogs a bit on the provocative side, so if you've seen one recently that pushes your buttons, let me know. I might like to check it out.

I've also been thinking about getting a new template design. I've had this one for two years and I think I'm ready to freshen things up a bit. Any comments on the one shown below?

We're coming up on the last week of summer holiday here, which means that I'm down to my last opportunities to spruce up the old homestead, too. It's time for me to do some paint touch-up, prioritize the last few projects, and see what I can accomplish as the summer winds down. Well, after I take a nap. :)

I'll miss the ladybug!

Only one question: is there enough contrast between the blog text and the background? (Can't tell from the picture.)

Naps are good. :-)

Might be a size issue, too. A little bit larger font would help. I agree that the contrast is important.

My sweetie thinks I'm more serious than daisies---and he's right; but, I can't resist things with dots and I could use a bit of silliness.

I can always try it for awhile and go back to the "old" one. We'll see if there are any other precincts heard from. :)

Just remember, sweetie...daisies never tell.

I really like you template! It's clear, quiet to the eyes and original, even after two years, so no need to change it imo! Enjoy your last week of vacation!

Thank you---for the comments on the template and the good wishes! I hope all goes well for your school year. :)

I actually really like your blog as is. :)

I like your "ladybug on the leaf" version of "a fly on the wall". Keep it!

I'm always wanting to change my blog up, too. :) I like the new design - fresh, different, and attractive. Worth a try, anyway!

Thanks. It looks like I might be outvoted. :)

A girl just needs a new outfit now and then, you know?
