Liketh..no Liketh?

Aloha!!!!!!!!!!                                                                                                              This actually shouldn't even be counted as a post...but I'm shameless and it's my blog...so what the heck :D....

Made so many changes to the blog now I've lost track and my old template...I still need to figure out the best colour settings and how to get the pics to be outlined...but enough xml and html for a week....I'm leaving this template for a week, after which I'll change it to a lighter template with way too much girly motifs for my liking but I think that would be the preferred option.

So you guys can act all important and let me know how you the new look is. You can be honest no worries but don't forget the name I go by!!! 

And oh what does the picture have to do with this...nothing at all...but it's everything my sordid life is right now. My dad is currently breathing  down my neck to stop working  Yep, I've maintained the image of - if I'm on the comp I'm working- so I shall stop with this baloney now :P

okay, even if you had not asked an honest opinion, i would have given you one, i am frank as well as honest :)
1. you have used more widgets/gadgets than required
2. u can see they are not fit with the sidebar.
3. cannot tell you about color mix, but i prefer light colors.
4. look, even your title is not visible clearly...

so i'll suggest, use some lighter theme, less widgets :)
use one sidebar and one customizable footer instead of 3 columns, because ur content is most important ...okay enough suggestions :) (dont think i am not going to read ur blog if you will not change these things :) )

lemme know when you get some ideas.. :D :)
WE should seriously ask PV to help us out or actually do a post on 'design a template'... i'm still not happy with the blaah one i have.. :| .. i wish i could jus doodel up or photoshop something and put it up.. but i have noooo clue how to do that with the html blah blah thingy.. :(

@Sharan....thanks dude...I know the widgets look all crammed up here right...but I like all of them:(...I don't feel like giving them up...so this week will work on working on the HTML code...I've had a 2 column for smetime now so thought I'll make it 3 for a while...but with the dark background minimalistic it should be...Thanks anyways.

@V:You know I come across these great photos to put as the header but they don't mesh with the background :(....I'm good at photo shopping never tried doodle though.

Superrrnickkk...!!!! said...

I agree with sharan... However since you dnt wanna give them up.. I feel you do can add select a layout that fit them properly.. Lighten up the background.. Since u like purple.. Light background makes the post more appealing.. Tweak n see the color combinations with purple.. White.. Light purple.. Dull grey.. N on a personal note.. Use light templates that can load faster.. When blog loads up fast the reader reads more.. Comments more.. Visits more and likes more.. :) wel that's my take though.. Who said being simple wasn't cool eh..?? ;)
happy blog redesigning..!! (if that's the word to use..!! )

@Prithivi: Thanks...lighter template seems to be the vote so far...so yeah will use the girly lighter template till I get another one..Thanks for stopping by :D

Rahul said...

Hmmmmm.....first reaction-awesome....second reaction-color combo a little off....third reaction-u a s.w engineer or sumthin????how the hell did u manage to play doodly-doodle-do with the xml template and all?????:-D

@Rahul: Indeed...why else would my life be in such a rut...I don't do coding for a living though..I just like exploring things and XML is hardly that difficult...I managed to change a lot in this original template, but then got bored in between...the other template is much neater and pleasing to eye but I lose the girl and top and I'm in a luuuuuuuuurv with her...need to look out for a header which will give me this and the lighter tone that seems to appeal to everybody.

Red Handed said...

Colouring life purple all the way..in the header isnt visible possible..and also the comments are kind of hard too read. Just an opinion..i looooove the header otherwise. Its beautiful!!!!!

The new look is refreshing, I plan to give my "blog"(in air quotes) a facelift as well and you've given me some ideas. Thanks for that.

I think you can play a little with the contrast wrt to text color and background color, the wordings on some of the widget headers seem to extend outside the box and the comment section is kind of hard to read. Purple obsession is loud and clear :D.

I love the kisses, the comments are a bit too dark to be read, and i would love a bit broader text window please :D

too many demands there, eh :D

Let go of purple, JUST ONCE, give it a try, at least. Come on, now?

The DRAGON in the skin of a goat ;-p said...

First up guys...I ain't giving up Purple...nope never ever...not a chance...so rest it...but yeah thank you so much guys...I appreciate that all of you have taken so much time to consider my request :D...I just wanted to have all the flaws rectified and work on the final tenplate in one shot...

@Guruji:I never reached the comment section to tweak around it...let me see what I can do with this template first, will then move on to the lighter one...

@Chints: No not too many yet ;)...Thanks for visting and commenting mi lady...some of these purple kisses for ya :D

Machi:You know my answer.Heck even you have purple on your blog so quit it...give constructive ideas Machi, don't attempt the impossible :P

The DRAGON in the skin of a goat ;-p said...

@Red: I know...something weird about this template..it even considers the blog title as a visited link...noticed that the other day as wel...just too lazy to work on it now...and yeah I love the header too...something about having a girl there but still not making it way too girly apeals to me :D

Stranger ! said...

Why did you change when you had the perfect one? :S . I so loved the previous one :( Anyway, I hope this will get better once you rectify the flaws :)

PeeVee said...
