OK, if you follow me, I NEED YOUR FEEDBACK!
IF I decide to keep this blog going, I need to spend several hundred dollars so that I can use the classic editing format. I don’t so much care about the money, but I do want to make sure it will be worth the expense. This is because, if I upgrade, it is going to require a massive re-working of this blog. Again, I don’t care about the time, I just want to know that it will be worth the effort.
I prefer simple designs, so that things are easy to find and can be navigated quickly. But the modern trend seems to be toward complicated designs. To my way of thinking, complicated is distracting and — honestly — lazy. It smacks of substituting ‘bling’ for actual content. But this is a personal bias and I know it. My goal should be to do whatever I need to do to reach my readers. I need to cater to them, not to me.
So, here is what I need to know:
Do you — the reader — prefer the simple way I have designed this blog page, or would you prefer the more modern, ‘busier,’ magazine-styled format that seems to be in vogue these days?
Seriously, I need to hear from you on this one — please.
