New design - how do you like it?

Better? Worse? Good? Very good? Just OK?
anything goes in comments.

Better.
I always found it confusing to have to be presented with a long list of previous blog titles prior to getting to see the body of the latest one. Whenever I refer people to your blogs I would have to say - scroll down the page...

Jerry said...

One other thing - the pop-up window for entering comments is far too small...always have to increase the size.

Hello Walter...Thank you for the time you spend sharing with your blogs. I subscribe to your blogs and have noticed recently that a setting must have changed...before a few days ago your pictures always came through the subscription feed. Now, I only see the words you type in my reader and must actually go to your blog to see the pictures. I use RSS feed to subscribe to more than 100 blogs around the world. Was this change a conscience decision on your part?

Thank you again for all your time and efforts.

i like it better in general, but when viewing your blog via google reader (an RSS feed reader) no photos appear. This means i must leave google reader and visit your site directly to see any photos. So for me and potentially many others, that is the down side. im not sure if there is a feature when setting up the feed to change this.

Would rather read on white paper even when electronic; but this really does not mean much - some very good newspapers are tinted and would never complain!

As long as the reading keeps being as good as it usually is, where the headers are isn't the end of the world. Wouldn't know which to call 'better' unless I had to.

just a thought...

New look is great. I do like how the blog archive isn't at the top of the page anymore.

I also have to agree with this post from above:

I agree with previous comment - archive at side is much better. Design is better then before.

I agree about the images - I subscribe to this bonsai blogs bundle: http://www.google.com/reader/bundle/user%2F16036541317089998975%2Fbundle%2FBonsai%20Blogs
via google and look every day. Most days there's a WP photo set and now it's empty.

Better layout, but the design could be improved if the title had more contrast against the background. In other words, I don't like the colour combination!
Still love the blog though!

Hello Walter
Im graphic designer so i can give you quite professional opinion.

Overall refreshment of the blog is very good. Color pallet is well chosen. Everything is clean and clear, just one small advice, the new post color in blog archive section could be more stand out, maybe dark green will work well.

Hi Walter
Warren, here again.
Thnx very much for including the
"Blog Archive" on the sideline. It makes it all much better.

The rest I don't even look at because I am so busy reading and looking at photos ;-))
