Blog Makeover

So, what do you think of the new blog design?

I stayed up late working on it, so it's all I have to talk about today.

Notice the nice social media buttons on the left? Notice my nice little intro blurbs on the right? Notice how I finally went to a three-column template?

I have to admit the three-column thing is going to take a little getting used to. It feels a bit crowded to me right now.

Note: The color scheme was inspired by an outfit I wore the other day. True story. I was just really liking the whole peach-mint-gray trend going into spring and summer, so I decided to incorporate it in my blog.

Maybe one of these days I'll hit on a blog design that I'll actually like enough to keep for an extended period of time, but this . . . I'll probably at least stick with it through the summer. It's feeling very spring-timey to me, and I'm liking that.

What do you think? Like? Dislike? Too crowded?

Be honest, is it too crowded? Because that's what I'm most concerned about right now.

Share your feedback below, por favor? Gracias!

First off, I love the colors!! I think pastels paired with grey just looks so feminine. I'm on the mobile app do I can't get a good idea of whether it looks crowded, but your new header and signature look cute :)

I love, love, love the colors! The font on your header is super sweet, too. It's a lil crowded with the three columns for my liking, but other than that, it's fabulous! You asked for honest opinions ... :)

I love love love the colors! You did a nice job. I would only say that I don't like having to scroll to the right to see your far right column. If there was way you could change the spacing that would be great. Otherwise it's perfect! :)

Stephanie said...

I think it looks great Callie! You did an awesome job! :)

I understand about the 3-column crowding, I had 3-column for a while and went back to 2 when I wanted to simplify, but I don't think it looks crowded at all. A lot of the blogs that I've designed recently are asking for the 3-column, it's very popular :)

My only thing is that I have to scroll left or right to see all of it make it TINY to see it all... but I love the colors and it doesn't feel crowded necessarily... just very...big.

Not crowded at all. I like 3 column :)

It looks really good, Callie. I never would have thought of putting those 3 colors together, but it works well. I like the clean and simple appearance.

Jessica said...

Your new design looks so great! Now you'll have to write a post on how to change your blog layout!

Amanda said...

I like it! It's "official" looking, like you're an experienced pro at blogging (which you are, in my opinion, very unlike my sporatic-blogger self!). Great job!!!

Lyndsey said...

I think it looks great! And I love the colors you chose, very spring and summer friendly!

Jessica Elyse @ Memoirs of a Mommy said...

Love the new look! You are sooo good at designing blogs. I may need some pointers on the social media additions. They have been giving me a headache!

Ashley said...

I Love it!!! Great job! Everything looks great - and not too crowded!! =)

Kate Craig said...

I like the simple design and round pictures. Have you used any tutorials for blog design? Any site recommendations?

Melissa said...

I love love love the colors & the blurb under your pic. I personally don't do 3 columns for the same reason, i think it's too crowded, but your blog really looks cute. i LOVE the font of your blog name & social media buttons. SUPER CUTE.

I wish someone could do the social media buttons for me... hint hint?! ;)

Melanie said...

Meghan said...

I love it Callie! I especially love the circle pictures of you and your boys. Very well done.
