I REALLY Need Feedback On This One

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.

Thanks, B3A

  1. It really doesn’t matter. Just make the page the way you want too.

  2. Honestly I care more about the content of this blog than the design. So whichever you choose I’ll still be here.

    1. I’m with you on this one. Simple and basic. I don’t need the distractions, just what you are saying.

  3. Hi Victor,

    Simple blog works for me. 😊

  4. Simple is better – the content is what matters. But is WordPress part of the anti-conservative Big Tech? I worry about censorship from them as things progress…

  5. I’m “Old School” so I follow the K.I.S.S. principle. You can also add a donation link to cover the incurred costs. Time is valuable and should be treated as such.

  6. I also care more about the content than the format. I don’t like too busy. Many times when I get the email notification I am very pressed for time & wading through emails is time consuming. I always read your blog & appreciate it no matter how stressed I am with email drudgery. I much prefer a simplified format because I don’t really have time for a lot of fluff. Rest assured if you change to please a majority input I will continue to read every word. Just stop with all the nonsense about quitting. You must never quit no matter what.

    1. Never quit? As much as I appreciate your opinion of my worth, I’m not all that important — not in the grand scheme of things. But, thank you 🙂
