Freelancedom Design Changes

19Jul08

Despite not being the most tech-savvy person around, I’ve been working this weekend to deal with some of the design quirks on my Freelancedom blog. With the magic of plugins, and my husband’s web design capabilities, I’ve managed to make some changes that I hope readers will like.

I’d love to get the no-bullshit opinions of my friends, which is why I’m posting this here, so without further ado…

On the side of pure aesthetics, Michael has managed to give me a border around my content, a background pattern, and a little bit more color. I’d appreciate your input, in the comments of this post, as to whether these design changes are a positive thing, or whether things such as the background image make things too busy.

I’ve also updated up “About” page, so that there is an actual photo of me in place of the giant apples that were already there, and additional information on how to connect with me via Twitter.

Back to the main page. You’ll notice, in the sidebar, that I’ve added an option to subscribe to this blog via e-mail updates. There are also links, farther down in the sidebar, to the most popular posts on Freelancedom.

Within posts, you’ll also be able to subscribe to comments, and also bookmark favorite posts on your social bookmarking site of choice (hint, hint).

I’d love to hear what you think of these changes, and would also welcome feedback on what you feel is missing from Freelancedom. Many thanks!

    Hi there. No bullshit opinion from me: I like the new look of freelancedom because it is clean, pleasing to the eye, and easy to find elements that I usually look for (about you page, RSS feed, archive, etc) BUT i would like to see more of your personality in the header somewhere whether it be with some sort of image or a subtitle of some sort because often that is what will make me read further into a blog rather than just moving along
