Keep It Simple.


I have been playing around with a new design for awhile now, and tonight I finally decided to take the plunge. This one has been a little more challenging than others because I have had to move html sections around to get what I want. Thank goodness for google and a few great tutorials I found to help along the way. Things aren't perfect yet, but hopefully I can complete everything over the next week. 

A big reason for the change (again) is that I want to keep this design simple. You know that saying ... keep it simple stupid. As much as I love all the fancy dancy backgrounds, etc, it becomes too much. I hope to step things up a notch or two around here, and I think that a new, simple design will help with that. I hope!

Have a great weekend!

    Great pic!
    I don't know, I like a bit of background to break up the white. But what I like visually rarely is in sync with the rest of the world. LOL.

    1. Until recently, I felt the same. I'm loving the simplicity of black and white right now :)

  4. i like it!

    and i understand, sometimes simple design is all you need. that's the main reason why i changed mine as well, last week. i felt like it was too crowded, there was too much color (although i followed a color scheme). in the end, i just wanted something more neutral and simple.
