Blog Revamp!

In the next few days The Purple Pumpkin Blog will be changing! I’ve been working on a new design for my blog which I hope to launch in the next few days…I hope you like it – I know I do!

It’s not to say that I don’t love my existing design, but it’s time for a change. I debated with myself about moving over to WordPress, but you know what? I love using Blogger and so, that’s where I’ve decided to stay. Plus, with over 1000 posts to my name, the thought of having to move it all filled me with dread!

I’m not only a blogger, but also a website designer and blog reader – I know what I like and don’t like to see.

I’m deciding which bits should stay and which bits should go – specifically things in the sidebar, where I have [at the moment] a lot of stuff – some of which probably isn’t necessary…I think I’ve got all the stuff I need to be there in the new layout, but would love to hear your thoughts – what do you look for in a sidebar? What do you not find particularly helpful? What information do you want to see “above the fold” (without having to scroll down).

Let me know in the comments below this post!
