I NEED YOUR ADVICE

Several friends have told me that they don’t like Sanity’s Bluffs template, format or whatever you call it. I like it, but if it is causing some hurried people to glance and run………you know what I’m talking about………I need to change it. A very nice lady followed my directions in setting this blog template up. Irma, from digitally essential it was. There is a button in my sidebar over there, to Irma’s website. If you need help with your blog, I recommend Irma. She did just what I asked her to. If my blog sucks in your mind it is all my fault. I thought this would be just what was needed to draw people further into my blog upon first glance. It is the words here that are important. I dabble in photoart, but I want to communicate in words. Here is a little template starter I came up with. I did the graphic work. Now imagine this little truck logo in the right top corner, instead of the artwork there. Would that be better? Comments will be read and answered.

I think your template is kinda cool and unique.
But sometimes.. change is good too.

I'd offer advice but you'd probably threaten to shoot me. You can delete this comment if you want.

Nah, graham, I can take it. Did your girlfriend run off with a truckdriver or what???
You don't likea truckdrivers, or is it lorrie drivers?
Let's hear your advice.
And shooting is not my preference, I like running over better. Maybe I should leave it alone, but you know you have made me curious. You want me to what????????

Hello - surfed in here through blogexplosion.

I like your current template better than the one you want to replace it with, it's pretty nifty - but maybe the new header image will look better with a cursive font.

in the end, it is about what you like and want. it is the words that will make people either come back or not.

too much emphasis is placed on appearance over substance. i choose substance whenever i can.

Your site looks great, as it is I think, WL...
If you wish more traffic... I would suggest you post more and often.
You got a great head on you WL and you put out a lot of very good reads...
But I guess it’s like fishing... The Bait you have the most confidence and comfortable with ... usually catches you the most fish!!!
Good luck in whatever you pursue...

Agree with "kavitha" - I think your current headers is better than the toy truck idea (I think it would look a bit odd; corny?).

I find the dark grey background a bit oppressive (make it a bit lighter, perhaps?), but content is the most important thing, and you can never please everyone - in fact, you can probably please hardly anyone with a blog, especially with the design, which means you really have to go with what YOU want and what you like; that's the most important thing. Other people will just have to get their own blog & do their own design if they don't like yours!

I thank each and everyone for your input. It has really helped. Sanity's Bluff will remain the same for awhile longer....
Have been really busy, and wish ole webloafer had more time to write. It won't be long until retirement time and I am going to wear out a few keyboards.....I am stocking up on them now, since they will be more expensive in the future, and they will be needed.

I like you design. Fresh and original. Now it did take a bit of time to download the top graphic, but other than that - it's cool. By the way, thank you for adding a link to my site. I will blogroll your site also.

I like truck drivers fine :) web loafer, I was referencing this comment you left on my blog:

My friend, you visited my Elizabeth and Condelezza website, and you were polite.........
My friend, we have to protect our country from those that hate us



ELizabeth Dole and Condelezza Rice could win....any battles.....

that the scared.....lol
that the unprepared....lol
that the stupidmothers that..lol

I wantyou to know....I know and love America

some weazzelie prickerly...weinerly...scumbizzlely...macoronniaprickadoesitaation


I have a bullet reserverd for your head, but then again...I think I'll just kick the liberalism out of ya.

If you survive....I'll want to know why you were so stupid


And afterwards I was referencing the fact that you deleted my response on your blog.

Blogger web_loafer said...

graham....
I don't remember...
I have no memory of anything like that
I take the fifth

Just a few textbook dodges.

I'll talk it out with anyone. I can't remember why I deleted your response, or even if I did it on purpose or accidentally......or even if I did it.

Yesterday is nothing I waste time on......

Am too concerned about tomorrow, and if my grandchildren will have the liberty, i love, or the freedom I worship....

You see freedome is a worshipable thing....since the creator declared....YOU SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH...........
AND THE TRUTH SHALL MAKE YOU FREE...





THERE IS NO FREEDOM OUTSIDE OF GOD, AND THAT'S IT............

USUALLY POLITE, PEOPLE, EVEN THOSE DISAGEEING WITH ME.....HAVE A VOICE HERE, BUT I BROOK NOT VULGARITY, STUPIDITY OR UNAMERICAN THOUGHTS.

IF YOU DON'T LOVE AMERICA


YOU ARE MY ENEMY.....

YES LET ME SAY IT AGAIN

IF YOU DON'T LOVE AMERICA

YOU ARE MY ENEMY.

PROVE ME WRONG
