New Blog Design

If you haven't noticed, our last actual post was on last Tuesday. One: I apologize. Two: We have reason. We've been working on a new look for the blog for a few weeks now and it all came down to final tweaking this week. Jeremy and I have been looking forward to this for a while now. We wanted to transition into the new look secretly without announcing it, but it's been a few days now, so I think it's time.

We love keeping things fresh and new and design is one way we can convey that. I hope you guys appreciate the lightness of it haha I know the dark purple made it hard to read sometimes. We're not dark people, so we think our blog should represent us as well as our taste in books.

If you're reading this in Google Reader, I hope you'll stop by the blog and see the new look. Tell us your thoughts. We love hearing reader feedback!

This week we'll get back into the normal swing of things. I wouldn't want to disappoint you guys :P  I won't wax on about this anymore because it's not something that needs to be drawn out. So, thank you guys for all your support!

UPDATE: We will be making a new blog button soon to go with the new design.

UPDATE: Grab our newly designed blog button on the lefthand sidebar!

  6. I like the lighter look with the glowing toward the center and it a bit more shaded toward the edges.

    Also with the lightness, the different text boxes seem to just float. Plus it's clean, simple and classic still.

    I'll need a new blog button though! Great redesign!
