Does a New Look Make a Better Blog?

Industry Observer

We will soon find out. You might remember that I did a post about my blog identity crisis and got some great responses to my questions. The first thing I asked about was what made a good design, what catches your eye. I thought a lot about the design question, and came to the conclusion that I wanted something more individualized than any format that comes with the usual blog service.

So I got some help, and we came up with a new blog design. We asked some people to look at the beta version, took their feedback, made some changes, and now…it's my new blog! I hope you like the look as much as I do.

Thanks to all of the Active Rain community for your feedback and encouragement to me as a novice blogger. I appreciate the support this extraordinary group provides.

I really like the look of your new blog! I am thinking of turning one of my websites into a blog. Before I go through and read all your post & comments that are linked above... who designed it for you?

Thank you Ladies! Michael D. Pollock is designing my blog. We are not finished yet (I guess a blog will never be finished...), there are still a couple more things we need to integrate and a couple of bugs need to be worked out. However, the main design, feel and color-scheme are final and I am very happy what transpired out of Michael's "organic" approach....

Aahh. Thank you. I found him at the bottom of your blog and clicked on the link, but I wasn't sure if he was the creator.
