New Look

This weekend I had a little fun with a Blogger Banner. I really like the banner, but I am not sure it quite MATCHES the rest of the blog...so I am going to mull it over, and maybe I will be changing the black to white, which would make my friend HK OH-SO-HAPPY.

Since I am totally NOT a graphic designer NOR an htmler, I am pretty proud of myself for making it happen, I could not have done it without the help of Amy's Post on Design Mom.

I also added a few ads. My DH suggested it. I like the one on the right being pink and the one on the bottom looks nice, so I am ok with it...we'll see if I make any money. I already wanted to click on a bunch of them, but I have agreed not too, so I googled them on a new page instead.

I also added RECENT COMMENTS on the bottom, just FYI

anon, it's not meant to be my best. And hopefully by reading my blog you will know that I am not all about looking my best all the time anyway....I love this picture...it is how I feel a LOT....and that's why it's PERFECT.

I was going to email you last night but was too tired but the email was going to say that I LOVE THE NEW PIC for your blog banner. It's SOOOOO you. When and where did you get it taken? Love it love it love it. Is O wearing the rabbit fur thing you wore for the wedding?
I do have to agree with the white/black thing.

Ok Melissa, I can't change the entire look of my blog according to my guru amy, b/c it will mess up all my htmls and stuff....so I was playing around with my word paint---I have no fancy photoshop...and I came up with this new banner, with more black, and I kinda like it....what do you think?

I vote yes (to the NEW new banner)

Kage said...

well put marian, well put

Melissa said...

Definitely like this one better but I still don't think it matches the rest of your blog (not that I have any sort of authority on this subject). Before it seemed more like clean, organized chaos - which is what I love about the pic - looks a little crazy but you are in full control. Can you put the lettering against a black background and just have the pic on white?

Kage said...

Oh melissa, that would require safistication in photoshopping that I simply do not possess, but now that I know how to change it, I may start experimenting...we'll see..............

Melissa said...

either way - it looks good and the picture is awesome. did I mention that? love love it.

I love the picture and how you have added more black around the pictures. Very fun and totally you.

On my screen I still see the old "Glass Posse" title as well as the new one. Am I supposed to?

Kage said...

Carrie, yes, the old title will remain unless I upgrade, and I have been advised not to upgrade....so enjoy reading GLASS POSSE two times...just in case you forgot while you scrolled one inch, which incidentally is also totally me....Did I tell you my blog name was Glass Posse btw?

Not a fan of the new "look". Just sort of chaotic to me... also the Google search bar is smashed off to the side when viewing in Firefox. The banner's abundance of white just doesn't seem to "go" at all with the rest of the page.
