Time for a new look?

So… it’s my birthday.  Yay me.  😉

That really has nothing to do with what I’m planning on asking you today, but I figured I’d throw it out there.  LOL

I’m thinking it’s time for a new look here at TD 365.  I’ve got a couple different themes I’m considering and would love to hear from you – the people who actually read the blog.  What features are important to you?  What would you like to see me add?  What would you like to see me lose?  What would you like me to keep?

Here are a couple looks I’m considering – both very different from one another.

Theme Licorice:  Brings with it a very easy on the eyes palette.  Simple navigation.  Use of “featured images”.  Full posts on the front page.

Theme Mystique:  Brings top of the page “share-ability” with facebook and twitter, and a cool uncluttered widget for clickable content (one click brings up the tags, links, and categories without refreshing the page).  Uses “featured images”.  Full posts on the front page.

So…  the main things I love about about Mystique are it’s easy twitter and facebook sharing, and the neat content widget.  But I have to admit I prefer the look and simplicity of Licorice.  However, there’s always the possibility of just keeping things as they are.  LOL

  1. I like Mystique! Modern and easy to read and looks easy to navigate!

    • You are definitely in the majority. LOL
      I love it too… but it’s going to mean major work to switch over. Licorice is an easy “plug and play”, but Mystique will take a lot more work. If I can find the time, I think it may be worth it though. 🙂 Thanks for weighing in Jamie. 🙂

  2. Hey girl! I like the Mystique, but you know there should be a widget tool or something that you can add Twitter/Facebook etc. to the actual posts – I know there’s one for Blogger. You might look and see – more options for you!

    • Hey Becky! Yeah.. I’ve got the twitter and facebook sharability on each of my posts currently… but they little, and not real noticeable. LOL I love that in Mystique they are up front and center – big and bold right at the top of the front page.

  3. Okay, I’m a dork, I’ll admit it… but I’ve got a thing for interesting numbers/patterns. And well… voting, as it stands is pretty neat. LOL 55%, 33%, and 11% (plus some .3’s and .5’s and .1’s).

  4. Well, Mystique it is. I swapped it out today. 🙂
