Opinions Wanted:

I am in love with LeeLou Blogs layouts and templates.
#1 they are adorable!
#2 they are free!
#3 they are user friendly!
SO, here are a couple of questions for you...
Is Sassy Sites too cluttered?
Did you like the 2 column layout more?
Do I have too much going on?
What blog layout do you use?
Please give me some honest feedback.
I would love to hear what you think!

It is really busy. I am not super familiar with the layouts but I think that simple is easier to read. I also think black fonts are easier to read. Love all of your content, but maybe simplify?

I really like the look of Sassy Sites! The variety of colors and visual design patterns is attractive to me and draws me in ~ makes me think, "This looks interesting, let me explore!" I used to have my blog set up just like this, with the wide column in the middle and a skinny one on each side. After a while, I changed it so that the two skinny columns are both on the right, with the large posting column on the left, and I like that better for me. Thanks for asking our opinion!

I think that 2 column is less busy and more easy to read. I use a 2 column and change my margins so that my text area can be wider and things don't seems so crammed in. Love your site and look forward to seeing the changes!

Did you change it already today? I was on it earlier and I thought it was a little different. I like the one column on one side, and then the wide posting area. That's how I do it on my blogs. I think having two small columns works, but I think having them on the same side together looks better and less busy than having them together. (does that make sense?) I love your blog and all that you have on it! Thanks for what you do! :)

It is a tad busy. Maybe just go white on the background but keep the fun headers and stuff. As far as columns, maybe try 2 skinny columns on one side and then big writing column on the other? Just a thought. I have seen that and thought it was nice.
I love Leelou layouts too! it's hard to do something new but just do it!

I think it's pretty as it is :)

hey girl!

less is more. we downsized to 2 columns, got rid of all the blogs we like on the sidebar since we follow who we like anyway & the list was getting loooong, then we made links to everything else.

everyone keeps mentioning it but 1 sidebar but wider works well.

love all your cute embellishments. i wouldn't get rid of any of that, it's so fun and shows off YOUR personality! and you cannot get rid of your signature chandelier!

:)good luck!

I had the same type of 3 column layout that you did and I thought mine was crazy busy! It was just too much on both sides to look at. I did some searching and figured out how to change it to a 2 column design and keep the same background. It was changing some HTML stuff but it walked me through it. It cleaned it up a TON! Hope this helps!!

Found you over @ Social Parade on Friday! I'm your new follower. Come visit and follow back!

I think it's a bit busy. The center column isn't wide enough so your text is running off into the design and is next to impossible to read.

I tend to like a simpler look, a little less scrapbooky, but that's just me.

It's your blog....it's all about what YOU like!

I don't think your blog is to cluttered at all!

I think your blog is cute & I think you should go with whatever you like BEST it's your blog!
It looks GREAT!!!

I love the layout but I wouldn't list so many blogs that you follow because a person has to scroll so far down to follow you and also see the about me which is what i look for alot... also the SASSY SITES in the header should be a little bigger. Cute, cute, cute though!!!

Tara said...

I really like your layout! I much prefer the two column look though - makes it seem a lot neater. I agree that you need to move YOUR stuff up to the top so that it's easier for people to become followers. Overall, this look just totally suits your blog.


Sasha said...

Did you change it already? I like the feel of it but I do think 2 columns are easier on the eyes. That's what I have over on my blog. I think you can have TONS of fun with the header and background tho to express the personality of the site. But I'll love Sassy Sites no matter what it looks like!


Cassie said...

I like the two column layout. That is what I use. I prefer a white background that way I don't feel like I am missing something.
Hope that helps!!
Thanks for asking!!

As a fellow LeeLou background girl, I often wonder the same thing. I love her backgrounds, but wish that perhaps the could be adjusted wider to allow more text/column space.

I started with the three column layout, and then switched to the two columns. I think it's more natural for our eyes to move to the right, so having the column on that side works better.

You're site is great. Keep up the great work.
