Hello my dear blogglings/readers!
Guess what? Musings of an Elf has had a total redesign! If you haven’t noticed (haha). Annnd I kinda totally love it. I’ve only been meaning to redo my blog for, oh, a year or so. Not that I would ever procrastinate. No way.
Anyway! I finally took the plunge and spent much of last week prettying up ol’ bloggy. AKA, a complete redo. Even made a new blog button!
So why the major change? Well, for starters, I was getting worried the excess of pink might run people off. Not everyone shares my affinity for pink. Eheh. So don’t worry, my few male followers, you don’t have to be ashamed about reading a pink blog anymore. You’re welcome. (Though, admittedly, it’s still rather girly. My ultra girly-ness cannot be contained. #UNASHAMED)
But more than just getting rid of the pink for people, for a long while now I’ve been wanting a much cleaner, more professional look. If I ever get a book published I want a site that at least looks like I know what I’m doing (even if it’s only pretend, shhh).
Lastly, it was just time for a change and to update things around here. I’ll miss my pink blog, but I’m super happy with the new look, and excited to have things a bit more organized and neat.
BUT I NEED YOUR HELP.
I’ve literally been tweaking this blog to death. My ability to be indecisive is so strong it could probably win an Olympic medal.
SO GIVE ME ALL THE OPINIONS.
What do you think of the header? Anything I could do to improve it? How about the sidebar? Everything look good? As for the pages, I will probably be updating them. I added an About Me page and fixed the others pages a smidge, but I didn’t have time to do everything I wanted. (Also blogger pages and me are notorious for battling. It always formats things weird and makes me want to throw my laptop out the window.) (Just kidding, I love you, Laptop. *pets it*)
Basically, I just need your overall opinions about the whole design. Are all the pictures showing up? (Another thing blogger and I fight over. >.>) Do you like how it’s all laid out?
ALSO. The thing I really need thoughts on: How do you like the font I’m using for posts? My old font was sooo small, I don’t know why I’ve been using that for so long. Again, I want a cleaner feel for easier, more pleasant reading. It’s embarrassing how long I took trying to settle on a font and font size. And I’m still totally indecisive about it. *moans* So PLEASE. Tell me! Is this font good for reading and look okay with the design? Is it too big? (DO YOU SEE HOW BAD I AM AT MAKING DECISIONS??? Even simple ones.)
DO NOT HOLD BACK YOUR OPINIONS. You will not, in any way, hurt my feelings. I write this blog for YOU GUYS, and I want to give you the best experience possible here at Musings of an Elf.
Speaking of which…
Not only am I improving the blog’s look, I want to make my content the best it can be. I think I’ve started to find my niche with blogging. (It only took my like 5 years. *rolls eyes*) But, again, I write it for YOU. I don’t want to bore you guys to death.
So my question is this:
What kind of posts do you want from me?
Are there any types of posts I do that you’re not wild about? (It’s okay! You can tell me. Please!) What kinds of posts do I write that are your favorite?
Do you have any specific posts you’d like me to write?
This is mostly a writing blog, so if there are any writing thoughts/helps/questions/opinions/ramblings/etc. you want from me, TELL ME. Or just bookish discussions. Or lifely things. Or…most anything really. And you can tell me any time at all. If you ever have an idea of a post I could do, share it! I’m on a constant hunt for blog ideas (coming up with ideas every week is tiring *collapses*), and I want to make sure I’m writing things you guys actually want to read, so TELL ME WHAT TO WRITE. Share your ideas.
I absolutely love blogging and connecting with my readers and fellow blog buddies. All you guys are the BEST! *hugs for everyone* I can’t thank you each enough for being interested in my nonsensical ramblings. And I want to strive to make this place something you do actually want to continue reading.
SO GIMME YOUR THOUGHTS. (Or do I have to buy them for a penny? A penny for your thoughts…? Ahem.)
Okay, okay, I am done plaguing you guys with questions. (But my indecisiveness has no bounds! I need help.)
Well, since basically this whole POST is
questions (sheesh, Christine >.>), I really don’t need to
add more. But let’s recap: Do you like the new design?
Anything that could use tweaking? AND do you have any
types of posts you’d like to see from me? DON’T
HOLD BACK. Honest thoughts are my fave.
