I Need Your Opinions...

I need your help!

It's cool and dreary outside, the kids are away,  and no one "needs" me right now, so I've been experimenting with the look of my blog.

I've always liked this Barn Board Background (say that fast 7 times in a row!), and have been trying to figure out how to make it fit with my blog, and still have it look simple and easy to read...

For those of you who are just reading this now, I had some white text, which was kind of hard for some eyes to read (including mine).  I made some changes, and like this much better!

I'd be interested to hear what your opinions are!

Thanks...and enjoy your weekend!

  1. It looks good to me, but I live in a barn.

  2. I love the beautiful and bodacious barn background. It goes well with the theme of your blog. But you're right; without that nice tan base the right hand column is a little tricky to read. I'm not very clever on blog templates so I don't know if you can put a background behind your "About me." If you can, my humble opinion is the rest is perfect.

  4. I am not keen on the white writing. It is hard for these old eyes to read. FWIW

  8. I like the barn background. Good that you changed the text, too. As for myself, and I am speaking for my own eyes, I prefer darker colours, as I find them easier on the eyes. The white screen is so hard for me.
    You have a great blog, I love what you have done.

    I like it. The barn boards fit with the theme of your blog perfectly. I have enjoyed reading all about your life on the farm.

  10. I noticed the change right away when I went on your blog today and love it! The barn look is so nice and rustic, and really fits your blog (in my opinion)!

  11. Alica, I can read this just fine, particularly on the left side main text area with the tan background. The sidebar on the right is a bit tricky with the faded background...however, it's not an area that needs as much ease of reading like the main text area does. I love, love the Barn Board Background for your blog!! I think it was created just for your blog, don't you think?

  12. I like the look of the wood. I designed my very first blog by using similar boards....it just seems to have a warm feel.
