It’s certainly a vibrant ORANGE … but methinks I like it ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

Are you on acid or what woman?

If you keep this flash back to the 70's up you will have to be smacked.

The baby stoped "Sh"ing his pants so now we all have to look at the crap.

Back to pics of Florida please.

Ugh I think I'm going blind -
methinks it stinks
I wish I had more blog accounts so I could post over and over again how utterly hideous this looks, it makes me ill to look at it.

Being the spiteful B’ that you are you'll keep it just to drive me away.

IamwhoIam said...

Can you say "Ugly"
very very "ugly"
so very very "ugly"
"ugly ugly ugly"
ugly is what it is
so truely ugly

Just incase you missed it
I think it is ugly and you shouldn't keep this butt ugly header and background.

So, I take it someone here doesn't like it? hehehehe...

Well, I can add a picture to the header again so it's not completely puke (P-U-K-E, not PUCK) orange. Though orange DOES go with the whole "Florida" thing, right??

I thought it was pretty cool and totally different from any other blog layouts I've seen. Re-adding all my links is a real time consuming pain. I kept my old layout, all backed up, in case there was a mad outcry of disgust.

Keep the opinions coming, though. The jury's still out!

ROFL!!! OK, I LIKE the header, but the background is... well, not my cuppa. Different strokes and all that,eh?

nikki said...

Screw them all, I like it. But then again, I am obnoxious.

Kaytabug said...

I like it. Orange doesn't bother me...it doesn't look like shit or puke. I really like the lil multicolored squares on sides, or I guess that's the background... Whatever, it looks NICE!!

ChrisB said...

Honest truth~ I'm still out on the verdict. I do find some of the busy backgrounds like this one, a bit hard on my eyes and the orange is quite bright. However, I'm sure I would get used to it!

C.L.J. said...

It works. While it is bright, I'd describe it as "vibrant." There's a good contrast, so the page isn't hard to read.

I do think that the title block is oversized.

Sayre said...

It's very bright. Once the blank spots load though, it's okay. What's supposed to be in the left hand sidebar? I get an aborted web page in there, sort of.

misti said...

I love it!!! :) It's colorful and pretty.

Hey, is anonymous, Lois??? ;) I learned about your spelling, chica.

Chris is in love with the passiflora and he likes the lantana. ;) Thanks for giving us a tour. We should do things more often!!!!

SwampAngel65 said...

Misti, Yeah, I have a strong feeling "anonymous" is Lois. Can't spell worth a crap, so who else could it be? hehehehe! I had fu showing you guys around. Let me know how the seeds and cuttings do!

Sayre, on the left is supposed to be a link to cbs4.com weird new stories. You're not getting it??? Very strange!

CLJ, I agree. I think the title block is a bit too big. When I try to add a picture there, it keeps going off center and looks bad. I'll keep playing with it until I figure something out.

Thanks for all the imput folks!

Mariposa said...

Very lively!!!

Blue Momma said...

I like it, but I'd make the text a bit darker. My old eyes might struggle a bit...... I think making the text a bit darker may please some of your haters, as it'll balance the orange a little more.

Of course I like the orange, so to hell with everyone else!!!

I think I'm gonna paint a room this color, though.

IamwhoIam said...

Only thing missing is the Happy Tree Family. Google it if your unsure. And you will have covered all forms of obnoxious - I think I might have to post a particular pic of a particular someone. Swamp angle, more like clif diver.

Olive said...

Okay here goes my opinion. This is not your personality - the background squares remind me of the seventies. It is a bit too much for the page.

Orange is okay, I guess, but I did enjoy the pics seeing that this is a journal of Florida. Color is fine but tone it down a bit. Maybe something pastel? Try different colors of nature (and not green). You are out there often enough.

Keep a joyful spirit.

Laura said...

Wait! Where am I??? LOL

The first background reminds me of a quilt, for some reason.

Very colorful and bright!

This layout has all the pictures my old one did, since they were all in my posts. the only exception is a header picture. I will work on that and if I come up with something nice, maybe I'll be able to convert some folks.

Yes, it's a bit loud and colorful. I wanted something different! Something fresh and new! And not one of the standard blogger layouts.

And if a certain person posts a certain picture, I will be OUT FOR BLOOD! Yes, I'm talkin' to you!

Sorry, don't really like it much. But I'm a guy anyway, so what do I know?
