The Face Lift

Everyone in Hollywood is having cosmetic surgery done; why not my blog?

I’ve only been involved in this blogging thing for a couple of months, but I got tired of that old home page of mine. It had a sort of generic, almost government-issue feel to it.

So I decided to go for a face lift.

What do you think?

Second try:
This is lean,mean, with sharp good looks.

Little Ms Blogger said...

It is a bit warmer -- the last one was a bit formal.

willow said...

Snazz-eeee!! Looks great. I've been contemplating the same thing. Was it easy to do?

Berowne said...

lakeviewer: Thanks so much for the great comment.

willow: "Snazz-eeee!! Looks great."

Thanks so much for the compliment.

"I've been contemplating the same thing. Was it easy to do?"

Nothing to it. As long as someone else does it. :-)

Berowne said...

Little Ms B.: Your comments have all been very helpful -- thanks.

Dedene said...

Très décontracté! I agree with Ms. B, this is much friendlier.
Is that you brushing your teeth?

Berowne said...

Mercy bewcope, Dedene.

>>"Is that you brushing your teeth?"<<

Oui -- ils en ont besoin. :-)

Kevin Musgrove said...

Wow! That was a hell of a shock!

Brilliant, it feels like a Krazy Kat Kompilation (I mean that as a Kompliment!)

I'm so glad you explained that. :-D

Thanks for the comment.

Jeanne said...

Oh, B, it's gorgeous! I love your lean-jawed avatar.

(Sorry I haven't been around much lately. Between losing the computer and trying to get the new one set up, I haven't spent much time in Blogworld lately.)

I adore it! Just right, not over the top. Great font. Amazing signature. Masculine yet creative. Nice.

Everyday Goddess said...

Love it~!
Decidedly masculine.
Maybe it's the stripes and the bathroom mirror, but it all makes me think that I'm in a movie with Kate Hepburn and Cary Grant. Which is fine with me because I love those two!

What a great comment -- thanks.

Never thought I'd wind up in a sentence with those two -- thanks so much.

You've made my day -- thanks a lot.

I think it looks great!

Pat said...

Popped over from Kevin's. I find it quite pleasing but the vital requirement is - is it legible - and it is. Clever boy!

Berowne said...

tattytiara: Very glad to hear it -- thanks.

Berowne said...

Pat: "I find it quite pleasing but the vital requirement is - is it legible - and it is."

Interesting that you say that. The first font I chose looked like my name was Jim Something. :-)

French Fancy said...

Oh I love this new look

Yep, 10 out of 10

the iNDefatigable mjenks said...

I like this. No offense, but I'm not a big fan of orange, so the old color-scheme wasn't my favorite.

I like this. It's got a good feel to it, plus I like the colors. Maybe too much e-nipples in the header, but still, overall, I give it a solid thumbs up.

Eleonora said...

Very nice look, colorful yet elegant. I love the description of the old look, it was kind of regimented in fact.

Ciao
Eleonora

Berowne said...

French Fancy, mjenks, Eleonora: What great comments. Your support means a lot -- thanks.

Enchanted Oak said...

I don't have any comparison, since I didn't see the old you. But the new you is definitly pleasing.

Vic said...

I had to go back up and look for the nipples after mjenk's comment. I don't know, I think I like them. :)
The layout overall is great! Very clean and the color palette is pleasing to the eye.

Berowne said...

Enchanted Oak: "I don't have any comparison, since I didn't see the old you. But the new you is definitely pleasing."

Thanks. But you understand, that picture isn't really of me. Although there are strong similarities -- for example, I too have been known to occasionally brush my teeth. :-)

Vic: "The layout overall is great! Very clean and the color palette is pleasing to the eye."

My cup is runnething over -- thanks.

Jess said...

Sorry I'm so late! I just wanted to pop on to tell you that your new layout looks absolutely smashing.

Berowne said...

Jess: "Sorry I'm so late! I just wanted to pop on to tell you that your new layout looks absolutely smashing."

Thanks -- your friendly comment smashes equally well. :-)

Tinsie said...

The only thing I'm not sure about is the font size. I would have liked it a little smaller as it looks too big on my screen. Other than that, it's thumbs up!

Berowne said...

Thanks, Tinsie, for your friendly comment.
