let's put it to a vote

Okay, to ya'll that read the last desperate plea for assitance, and even if you didn't, I need your help. I've put into action a very helpful tutorial for adding a third column on a simple blogger template. I've added my kick-ass header, and some basic elements you'd find on this page. This is what it will look like, more or less, if I decide to put this format into action. I've created another blog so everyone can decide for themselves. Since you guys are the one reading this blog, and I don't want it to assault your eyes, I thought I'd let you have the final decision. I personally like both. I'll add a little poll thing and we'll see how popular the new on is. Here's the link:

I just picked a random phrase for the blog title, don't shoot me in the face.

So, let me know?

This is just my opinion, but while I do like the new layout I think the posts should be in the middle since the right side is so heavy visually (oooh…don’t I sound fancy? Lol). Also, is there a where you can get rid of the “hosted by imgur” off of the banner? If those are your photos you can probably replicate the banner without the credits. But that’s but me being finicky (which is why you wouldn’t believe how long it takes me to update a new layout).

I am preferential to white blogs though. I have no idea why (though white is my favorite color and they are usually easier to read). And I like the title. :)

The new header is VERY cool and more than a little creepy. I do think it fits your blog better than the present header. I really, really like the present header, but it's not edgy enough for you, I think. ;-) I agree with Alana about preferring the posts in the middle.

I really like the new header, but I think that you could do a lot more with the sample blog to make it work. Personally, I am not crazy about having all the sidebar stuff on one side. I did have my own blog that way for a while, but over time if you are not careful it can become a little cluttered looking. If you like the new layout, I suggest just playing it until you are happy.

i love the new header and quite like reading on a lighter background (its a bit easier on my decrepit eyes!). i have a question, i too was recently playing around with a draft template for my blog, and noticed that the followers disappeared on the draft - i see this has happened on your draft too. i'm worried if i change it all my followers will be gone, do you know if that will happen or not? (i tried the google help but it didn't really give me a good answer)

mummazappa--Oh, well thats not a draft, its a completly seperate blog. If you change the template on a blog thats currently active, I doubt all your followers will disapear.

Love the header, and like the others I prefer the posts in the center. The white is a bit hard on my eyes, but as I seem to be the odd man out on that one, you should probably just ignore my opinion :)

I think the colour scheme is prettier the way it is, but you should add the new banner. But then I very rarely click through from bloglines, so I read your blog without seeing the layout.

I like the colors on the original blog better than the new white background, which is a little harsh. And I agree with the others about having the main posts in the middle. Maybe update your original blog with the new header?
