One Big Old...

Thank you, thank you, thank you...for bearing with me through the insanity of my blog "remodeling" project. I have a whole new appreciation for the people that design blog templates!!! I hope that you like the new look - it definitely serves the purpose for which I made the changes in the first place...and that is to be able to have more features in a format that anyone can easily view.

It took me awhile to find a basic 3 column template that fit my needs and much more trial and error to turn it into a fluid 3 column template with all of the widgets and gadgets and customization that I wanted, but I think it turned out pretty well. I did have to change the functionality on a couple things (like comments), but please take a moment to look around and if you find anything that isn't working, or looks goofy, or seems like it isn't working as well as it should, PLEASE let me know! Either leave a comment or convo me if you're on Etsy, or e-mail me at sales@mysticwynd.com. Of course, I'd also love to hear any general feedback on the new look as well!

Since I'm in the whole "change" mode (in more ways than one - middle age is not for the meek), I'm also looking for feedback as to what you would like to see more of, or new ideas for articles, promoting, features - whatever you have. Of course, nothing goes simply - I just now attempted to add a "poll" in the left sidebar only to find out that the colors of this particular gadget make the choices virtually unreadable against my sidebar background and they're not something I can change. I have a request for assistance on the Blogger help forum, but in the meantime... here's what the poll choices are in the order they are listed in the sidebar! If you would please vote for any or all of your choices, I would be eternally grateful!

The choices are:
More Informational Articles
More "Fun" Articles
Giveaways/Prizes/Freebies
A Weekly List of Etsy Shops Having Sales
Background Music

Of course, I'm sure it's actually perfect just the way it is ;) but humor me and vote anyway!

Thanks again for your patience and especially for all the well wishes and positive thoughts over the last couple weeks. For the first time in a bit, I feel like I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and it's not an oncoming train!

Peace, Shalom, Namaste, Blessed Be... Hugs and love to everyone!

I removed my last comment, I missed the section of your post about the voting colors. That was my suggestion. :)

I like the layout a lot. Good job with it!

Thanks Robert and Blissful Blooms! I'm still waiting to hopefully have someone respond with a fix or hack for the poll colors! It figures... last year they (Blogger) got complaints about the light color they were using for the text on polls. Now it's the opposite for me! Hopefully they'll make it something that is customizable!
