Spiffy new look

Because I got tired of the template I was using, I've spiffed up LIT SOUP to make it ultra-pretty.

Free Wordpress template that was modified for Blogger + my widgets reinstalled + fiddling with the LIT SOUP graphic a bit = sheer awesomeness

I am very pleased. =)

It is very pretty! I love the flowers and colors ... might have to poke in more often.

word verification - immemul (I feel like I'm mumbling trying to say it properly)

Looks nice!

It startled me at first. I thought I'd stumbled upon someone else's blog! The new look is marvelous (not that the old one was shabby). I also think the date tabs on the side are handy.

Nice job.

I just put plowed through Westerfield's Uglies Series (was stoked about finishing 3 books in 12 hours but dang, turns out there's a fourth???) so the "ultra-pretty" term is currently creeping me out. I'll go with a connotation-free "beautiful."

Awesome, nice work. I've just recently started learning how to set up my own Wordpress sites, and the breadth and variety of available themes amazes and delights me!

Oh, I like it. Good job! Just the right touch of "writerly".

Love the change! Makes me want to acutally come to your blog more instead of just reading it through Google Reader.

Very purdy!

And you should be proud, it looks fantastic. The color is appealing, much better than the old parchment look, and your blog is at the center of the page so it's the center of attention as it should be rather than being squished to the side. Good work.

Lovely and floral. Perfect for Spring.

I like this MUCH better than the other, which is such a common blogger template that it looks worn-out every time I see it.

'Never seen this one before though! It's great!

Griffin Asher said...

Looks awesome! :-D

Thank you all!

I'm using a fancy LCD monitor set to 800 x 600 because of my vision, so the old template always showed me the blog in the middle of the page...didn't realize that wasn't the same for everyone else.

This template, actually cuts the sidebar in half for me, but I can deal with it. I figure it looks better for people with bigger vision. And I can still read my own text, etc, which is all that really matters to me.

I love your new look. Well done!
