Because I can’t make simple decisions without over thinking them. 06 Friday May 2011 Posted by IfByYes in My Blag is on the Interwebs ≈ 8 Comments Tagsblog layout, Blogging, blogs, Polls, socks, themes Happy Friday everyone! I have some questions for you guys: Should I get a New And Improved Blog Layout/Theme, which is prettier and fancier, but still contains that old If By Yes charm? Take Our Poll If so, should I do it now/soon/Mother’s Day or wait until my blog’s Two Year Anniversary in June?

So, either 100% of people like your blog the way it is, or I’m the first one to respond. I actually think yours is one of my favourites, design-wise – it’s simple, it’s clean, nothing pops up or moves around or whistles, and I can always find what I’m looking for. It loads quickly, too.
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. And this coming from someone who gets the “gotta change this bloody thing” itch on my blog fairly regularly.
Don’t worry, even if I do change the layout, it’ll stay clean. I like a clean layout. Don’t know why I can’t keep my own house that way.
Things that would stay the same: white background, general colour scheme.
Things that might change: more imagery, a little more elegance.
Good point about the loading. That will encourage me to keep it simple even if I do change it up a tad.
But we’ll see.
I’m not overly keen on socks – unless I’m in bed and my feet are cold – but if you’ve find a theme you think you’ll like better than the current one … well, it’s your blog, do whatever you want with it. 🙂 If your blogoversary is in June, might as wait until then and use the event as excuse to give your blog a little gift!
Goodness knows I keep changing things around on mine ever so often. I think I’m a bad influence on myself.
I have no real opinion, so I didn’t vote. I like the look of your blog a lot as is, but I’m not opposed to change if it makes YOU happier with it. (Totally NOT helpful, but there it is!)
When I first saw this comment turn up on my dashboard, I thought it was in one of the politics posts and I was like “BAD KERRY! BAD!”
But it’s totally ok to not vote on THIS poll 😀
I voted ‘yes’ and ‘now’, but just because I think restyling could be a fun thing to do (not that we ever have).
Hi, I'm Natalie. said:
As long as you don’t have moving bits in the background, I will love it. (The really-popular wordpress snowflakes last Christmas made me want to bash my computer against walls. =)
LOL. I liked the snow, but as a rule I hate moving stuff, like cheap animated gifs and such. A little too geocities/angelfire, you know?
