I gave myself a makeover!

After working on and off for five months of frustrating design work, I’ve finally redesigned my blogs! (B-Sides got a coordinating makeover, too.)

I’m not sure why, but it is MUCH easier to design someone else’s blog than your own.

At any rate, I am hoping to accomplish a few things with this new redesign:

  • Sleeker, less busy design – maybe even more professional (but probably not).
  • MUCH faster loading time (let me know if this isn’t true).
  • A change of scenery.

Hope you like it!

  1. It seems to take a tad longer to load, to me, but I LOVE it! Much sleeker and more professional. Love the colors, the layout, the font, all of it! Great job!

  2. Rachel, thanks for stopping over at my blog this week. I have been reading yours, and I love, love, love the "Mom Jeans and the Dreaded Long Butt." I was howling! You are a very talented writing and I look forward to reading much more from you! Come back and visit anytime!

  3. Very nice! I like changing mine up every now and then, but I am doing my best not to! I love the way this looks!

  4. Beautiful! I love them both! I really like the colors, and it is a lot less busy. I liked the other one too, but I think this is more visually appealing. I love the picture of Ali on B-sides! I don't think it is any slower…maybe even a tad faster. Looks great!

  5. I didn't completely pay attention, but I think it didn't take so long to load. I remember that the last one took a sec, but seems like this one popped up. Either way it's great – and of course you are worth waiting for!!

  6. It looks great! And I agree 100%…it's so much easier to design for someone else than yourself! I STILL haven't found something I'm 100% happy with for my personal blog.

  7. I think I've already said it a couple of times, but what's one more…love it! And yes, it does load much fast and look more "professional" ;)

  8. I do not like it, I cannot see my Ali's picture everyday when I turn it on. (sniff, sniff, boo hoo)

  9. I like it and I'll let you know about the loading time next time I hop on from my phone. That's where I really notice it. In fact, there are some blogs that I don't even go to from my phone anymore. It just takes too long.
