Is it too techy??

I have been playing around with a super 'techy' blogger template and I just don't know if it the sort of thing I want in the long run.  It is unusual and fun, but not quite what I think of as a blog template.  Any feedback??

Test Palette 1

Test Palette 2

I have way too much time on my hands tonight.  Waiting for the final "lights out" for the girls camping in the basement, I came up with another layout option.

    1. Thank you for your feedback Mami, I can always count on you!! You are right, it's not permanent, I can switch it up if I don't like it.

  2. I am the LAST person you want to ask if "it's too techy" LOL - - - I''m the gal who's still kicking, screaming, and dragging her feet about NOT switching over to the new blogger interface.

    I'm also the girl who has kept the SAME blog background/style since June of 2006 just because I like it and don't like change.

    However - - - if you want my non techy opinion, I like sample palette 2 better than 1.

    Thanks for all your visits to my blog today. I would LOVE to take you antiqueing with me - - - when is your NEXT visit to central Wisconsin???

    BTW - - - do you realize that you are a "no-reply commenter?" That means you haven't linked your e-mail address on your profile page. It doesn't SHOW there, but folks can click it to e-mail you and ALSO if you put it there, when bloggers like moi get the e-mail alert about your comments, we can reply directly from your comment in our e-mail to your e-mail. Saves discussing all our "laundry" over here in your blog comments! ;-)

    1. Thank you for the reminder. You told me about that before and I kept forgetting to do it. I have no idea when I would be in central Wisconsin...hahahaha.

  3. in your FF post below...I had to laugh, the sitcom vs. living with it in real time...yep, sure 'nough.

    Oh, and I check both new templates out...and for me personally, I like the clean looking template #2. [did I just say #2?!!!]

    1. Thank you Lisa!! I like to change things up too much, I think. Haha

  5. I'm not a fan of number one. I don't like the magazine style for a blog. It makes it too hard to see the most current post, you wade through all the little items and it feels cluttered.

    Personally, I am on self-hosted wordpress using the Duet theme. But you have to pay for that :) I think simply uncluttered is best when it's strictly a blog.

    1. I think you are right, Andrea. It is a bit too 'busy' isn't it??

    1. It is, and thank you, I do like what I have now. I hadn't even thought to use the header, duh!!! Brilliant!! I do like to play around, maybe a bit too much at times?? I was trying to be 'chill' about that for a while, hahaha.

  8. I like number 2 for purely selfish reasons---since I could spend hours browsing around reading about the pictures, etc. I'm old and have to get back to work! I agree with Mami. I changed a couple things on mine, assuring myself that 'nothing has to be forever.'

    1. Hahaha, I also liked the way the pictures moved around while I moused over them.

  9. I like what you have. I agree with Jennilee, just change up the header and such for a change if you need one. I do prefer template 2 of the two you shared. The first one is too much.

    1. Thanks Jamers!! I really do like the simplistic style of what I have. I just need to get some photo editing something to make better photo things for the header. I mean, what else do I have going on right??? ;-)
