New look Blog - what do you think?

New look Blog - what do you think?

Any input would be good. Have the changes made the blog look more professional, or a bit too busy?

Cheers

Steve

I like it, but I think losing the lines around some of the boxes - especially the sidebars - would make it look less busy and easier to read.

TD,
Is that better, or should I leave the centre section boxed?

kate said...

I like it, wondered if i was ay the right place.

Daily Referendum said...

Thanks Kate. You always worry that any changes will put people off.

I think the Conservative Party logo in the background is distracting; I find it harder to read the posts.

PS: I like the 'stripped down' look.

Cheers Mr Gruff,

I'm trying to find a way to make it more like a watermark, but I don't have a decent photo editor. I'll keep trying.

Mr Gruff,

Is that better?

Good look - apart from the 'tree' logo. Generally a clearer layout..

Daily Referendum said...

Cheers Phil,

About the Tree Logo, does it still make the blog difficult to read, or is it that you don't like the logo?

I must admit, I'm not at all keen on the party's new green identity.

oh i forgot to say that sometimes when i come here it says internet exploere cannot open.

Hello Kate,

Yes that's something to do with posting youtube videos. I've noticed that it happens to other blogs. There must be a fix for it. I'll have to go hunting on google.

William Gruff said...

It's definitely easier to read but would it be impudent of me to suggest that I think the blog would look better without it?

Whether or not, your blog is one of my very few more than daily reads. Many thanks.

I spent all afternoon cleaning my monitor screen, until I realised it was the Conservative logo. Also, it takes longer to download the blog.

ThunderDragon said...

It's certainly better without those lines!

I'd suggest also experimenting with the sidebar lines but not the middle box and without them all - or maybe a lighter colour line!

I like the tree background.
