Second Theme

Okay, second up is a theme called “Freshly.” I just loved all the input yesterday. It’s so nice to know what some of you are looking for and it’s kind of funny to find out what each of us like.

I will say, my eyes don’t do black backgrounds and white fonts so I’m not including those. They almost hurt my eyes so I’m pulling rank on those themes. We all have our favorites but I’m putting them all up and will leave them up for the day so everyone can see them and tell us what they think.

Please be honest and remember, tell us what you like and what you don’t.

    These fonts are kinda small too. I’m also not fond of this stuff:

    The fonts seem so “cold.” That’s not the word. What word am I looking for here??? I also don’t like that date thing on the right top side of the post.

    Are we too fussy?

  2. This format looks even smaller than yesterdays. I’m seeing a ton of space on the sides. Your header photo is sliced too thin. The font is small. The icons are miniscule. I’m sure that’s adjustable; I’m not sure it’s worth it though as this format will probably be voted out.
    Have a great night! Looking forward to the next change. 🙂

      LOL Jean. Thanks. I’m thinking you’re right. You know when you’re looking at them at the theme site, they don’t look like this and you can’t see how things like the comments and stuff looks so you almost have to do this and all the input is great.

    It’s somewhere are there LVISS. I’m not doing the black ones though.

  5. Joy says:

    I really don’t care for all the gray along the sides. It doesn’t seem like it’s this much on the preview.

  6. SKL says:

    I actually like this better than yesterday’s. The fonts are still too small, and yes, there is a bit of clutter here and there. But I like the link to the next / previous post. Was that there before? I never noticed it.

  7. Laura says:

    I like this one much better than Ocean, although you’re right, the font is really tiny. I don’t mind the date, and it might be handy if we ever wanted to go back looking at stuff.

    The comments are WAY better than yesterday. Easier to follow threads, and no stupid “logout” button to have me logging out six times in one day.

    There isn’t much that I don’t like… except that the picture is too skinny – I like the bigger one… but this one doesn’t ‘trip my trigger’, you know? It’s nice, but it’s just kinda there.

  8. Sue says:

    I also like this one better than yesterday, but everyone is right. The font is too small still! I wish we could do original style but add some color to it. This isn’t the one 🙂

    I like this one way better than yesterday.I actually didnt notice the font being smaller,is it darker than Ocean then?I can read it better whatever the reason.I like the grey sides.Is it missing you ladies name under the posts(who wrote it/or from)?I like to see who its from.

  10. Lucy says:

    I agree with most of the feedback above. I also do not like white font on a black background. It makes it hard for me to read. I like the date on the top of the post.

  11. Just a Mom says:

    This one is better than yesterday but so far I still like the “old” theme. This one is just kind of blah with the gray and black.

    • Joy says:

      That is why I’d only had the one JAM. I really like that one. I did find a few others I kind of liked but there was always ONE thing I didn’t like. I really liked one but the comment button was on the top of the post. So your read the post and have to scroll back up to click it. Just little things like that. It’is good to show them for all to see.

      I also really hate how small the banner pic is. I thought it was small before but it’s half that with this theme.

  12. Nikki says:

    Well this is better than yesterday but still not jumping out at me saying….I’m the one!!!! The header is too thin, and I’m not a fan of the date on the side. The font is fine for me…I don’t know, seems boring to me. Maybe we are too fussy!

    • Joy says:

      If we are being to fussy, we still have the one we liked and have had for 2 years that we can go back to. I just thought a change might be fun. It is kind of fun doing this with everyones input though. Because when you’re trying to pick one, you don’t really know how everything is going to work and look until you are using it. In the preview thing, it only shows you how it’s going to look and not how it all works.

      The fonts are very small to me and it seems “sharp” somehow. Not friendly and soothing on my eyes. But then, yesterday’s wasn’t soothing on my eyes either. It was too busy in the comment box.

  13. This is pretty similar to the one yesterday in terms of the fonts and borders, but I much prefer the way the comments look here – they look like they did on the them you guys used before, and not all boxed in like the theme yesterday. So I rather like this one, because the grey is just as soothing as the blue from yesterday, and it looks neat and tidy.

    I like the color option on the sides instead of the white. I don’t know if that is something you can change on the old one or not. I have the same thyme that you “girls” do funny I notice you changed the name of the blog. I like that Us Girls our views. That’s a nice blog name.

  15. Frankly, it’s the content I come for. I don’t deny that a ‘look’ gives a certain feel to a blog, but I come back because I enjoy reading all the different opinions and ideas.

    My biggest beef with this theme is: I can’t tell who wrote which post. That bugs me!
