My little blog is in need of some new finery.
~ deer trail across the front field ~
Just like the deer trail above,
Sweetpea Path has barely wavered in style, direction or sideline accoutrements
since hopping onto the internet five years ago.
Oh my, has it really been that long?
Why, some blog authors I know have changed their look half a dozen times
within that span.
Our time has come.
And I'm so excited !
~ picnic table, weathering ~
Dunno exactly when, sometime early in the new year I expect,
I'll be shaking it up around here. Gonna stay with Blogger [am comfy here]
but I've been feeling the need for pages/tabs up top [more elbow room to add information],
a little less clutter in the sidebar [maybe no sidebar at all],
and well, just the opportunity to enjoy more template options such as fonts & picture placement;
perhaps even a header with photos in it - imagine that.
My current template is so old, no one joining Blogger in the last few years has had
the option of using it. It's terribly limiting and I do believe
I've plum outgrown it.
So this is to let you know there may be a bit of chaos
while I sort out my new *look*
I was wondering, ahem, if I could ask you something ...
~ sun flares at winter solstice ~
You see, nowadays there are SO MANY options for page design/layout
I'm spoiled for choice. And I'm a bit confused if truth be told.
A few details I'm certain about and the rest are up in the air.
What better way to get a temperature reading than to ask those of you who stop by,
what do you most like to see on someone's blog?
What welcomes you? What makes you want to come back?
If you can spare a few moments, would you kindly leave a comment
[or write a quick note via the email link on the right if you prefer]
and let me know what blog attributes you like best ...
Meaning, as a visitor & reader, when you arrive on someones blog to peruse a post
what is it you really like to see there and what are the blog functions which make that easy?
Although this blog has served as my online journal - tailored & tuned in a personal way -
there's no denying how very important you folks are.
I thank you in advance for leaving your thoughts.
