“Your site looks like crap” and other comments people have posted about my blog.

I’ve received a bunch of comments about the design of my blog. Many people feel that it’s too hard to navigate, too sparse, too simple and not nearly attractive enough. I’m not sure I agree. I think it’s very easy. I like the use of white space. And at the end of the day, it’s easy to read.  But here’s what you’ve said:

“Does anyone use that ugly teal color anymore?”
“Where’s the navigation? I’m looking for older posts and they’re all the way at the bottom. I hate that!!!!” (I love the four exclamation points.)
“Uggggg – I love the writing, hate the blog.”
“I’m a freelance designer who will happily redesign your blog for you.”

OK – I give – I’ll try some other designs.

You can be my mini focus group. Think of today as a quantitative testing methodology. Your choices will be counted and tabulated. The results will be immediate – as I will keep my blog in its current format – or in the newly redesigned format beginning tomorrow.

Vote. If there’s a format you particularly like and I didn’t include – please let me know. Click on any image to see it larger.

The Current Format:

Choice #1:

Choice #2

Choice #3:

Choice #4:

Choice #5:

Choice #6:

That’s it. Seven choices in all. I’ve picked them all for their simplicity. Some have easier navigation. Some have areas for images. Some are just nice and easy.
I can live with all of them. What do you think? Fill out the poll below. Thanks.
