I've revamped my blog and I value your opinion

Well, I faffed about this morning and I think it's worked.
How is it looking at your end?  Are the font's OK?  Would you prefer less curly letters?  What about the colours - and the background?  Not too distracting?  I tried to get the background the right size - but it may show as tiled on some systems.  I did have fun last night playing with the graphics programme to create the background and header.
Those who know me, know that they have to drag me away once I start 'colouring in', because I get all enthused about new gadgets and colours and effects.  I try to remember that 'less is more', but it's so hard because I want to add more and more and more.....
There is no 'bad' comment - it's all constructive.

I like it. I have here 2 screens in front of me and moved it to the other screen as well. Amazing on one of my screens the cats in the middle shine through and the writing has 2 different colors bc of that, and in the other screen the writing has all the same color and the cats are more in the background.
Both versions are lovely, and easy to read. I find it not distracting. It's lovely. I would leave it as it is.
Is the 2012 subject cats for any chance?

I really love the purple background and cats on the left. The font looks fine too me. Personally I am finding it a bit difficult to read with the cats behind the post but it may just be me and I do need new glasses anyway!

But on the whole I love it!

BTW just emailed you! x x

The only thing I'd change is the cats behind the posts. The colour choices are great.
I like that you have lists right at the bottom of the blog. I was wondering hat to do with my 2011 finishes list. I might move it there too!

Well, leave it to me to e different! The cats in the background are fairly pale and don't bother me, but I have trouble with how light the text is. I'm not saying it has to be black, but at least with some deeper tint to the blue, please?

Looking good, love the purple and the paw prints but just want to second what Shebafudge posted about the cats behind the post - sorry Bronny

Hey B girl, how are the hols?
All good for the new set up from me. Taking into account what has already been said though, maybe making the centre green wider so that the cats are on the extreme right will be easier for most to read. I just need to remember to put my glasses on so that I am not squinting to read - lol.

Cute. Very cute. I can relate to getting over enthused with designing - the colors, the art, the layout. Been there, done that. I like the colors and the cats. Layout is nice. Only thing I find for me personally is the style of lettering in header and color of lettering in your posts. In the header it seems fuzzy. My eyes seem to have to go "wooooo", then adjusts, then sees the wording." The font color you used for your posts is nice but I think it needs to be sharper, perhaps darker or another color. Is to close to the background color. Again, very nice job on the changes. I enjoy reading your blog, Bronny. Abbie
