Spring Cleaning

Deciding to go for a clean, bright new look, we implemented a template change on the website this weekend, which I sincerely hope didn’t interfere with anyone’s reading and or visit to us.

We were going for fast-loading, clean, and definitely uncluttered. But, if feedback says otherwise, we might bring back the previous look (if that’s a preference) although I am hoping you, dear reader, like me, love this easy to navigate fresh looking template.

So don’t be shy, let us know your thoughts on the new look by leaving us feedback in the comments. Also, if there is anything else you would like to read and or see here, on the Kissed By Venus web site, let us know. Thanks.

    You really want my opinion? :-) Alrighty.

    This looks like “everybody’s” blog/website. Not that that’s bad, it’s just common. Also, the light green is tough on the eyeballs.

    The good thing is the pull down menus have separate pages. On the other site, it was difficult for me to get to the entire list of interviews, without closing a bunch of toolbars, to make my screen larger.

    I prefered the colors and general layout of the original.

    Hi Bobbi,

    Thanks for stopping by and commenting about the new look. As I said, any and all feedback is appreciated, as well as welcomed.

    In response, bearing in mind tiny text is difficult to see, especially in light green, I have upped the font size by one, and will address the light green in the sidebars as well. More to come.

    I like the clean/simple look but would pink instead of green text be too “girly” – maybe a dark fuschia…?

    Tonya, fuchsia does sound fun but maybe a little too in your face for some. Bobbi was already having problems with font size and the green.

    The whole idea I was going for was not only the fresh, clean, spring look, but the tie-in to the name: Kissed By Venus, with the leaf motif as in apples from the tree of knowledge, Eva and all that. But maybe it was all in my head. Laughs!

    I love the new layout–it’s clearer looking, precise and more of an eye-pleasure read. Thanks so much for this change!

    Thank, Robinet. I did a few tweaks after Bobbi’s comments and, so far, everyone’s liking the results. Don’t forget to let us know if there’s anything you would like to see added, as well.

    Thanks again.
