Background Check

I love visiting all of the cute, creative, fun, unique, challenging, and inspiring blogs out there! Don't you?

In my travels around the blogosphere I've discovered some really neat blog designs from Thecutestblogontheblock.com. So, I decided to branch out and download a cute background for my blog. But, now that I've done it, I can't decide if I really like it. Is it too cluttered now?? What do you think? Also, the credit line is covering up my post titles and I don't know how to fix that.

Please leave me a comment and let me know if I should keep my new blog background -- or go back to the simple pink background I had before. I just can't seem to decide . . .

Elizabeth;

Keep the sweet pink background! I think you are right: although I LOVE polka dots, it clutters your area and takes away from the amazing and delightful family photo on top.

Hope this helps!

Love,
Karen

I really like the polka dots and pink ribbon. But, I wouldn't keep it if you can't move the wording over your titles.
And it seemed that your blog loaded much slower than before.
With that said, I enjoy reading your posts and will visit either way! :)

I like the background. As to the wording, I wonder if it's got something to do with where you placed the code when you added it to your layout? It will depend on the template that you're using but I added mine to the gadget bar at the very bottom of the blog and not to the side or top bars. I hope that makes sense.

It does make your blog load slower (mine's getting incredibly slow now that I have linkwithin) but it's lovely to look at. One of the fun things about blogs is that you can keep changing them!

Thanks Jules! Your suggestion worked for moving the credit line! I think I might keep the new background for awhile -- it is cute and fun! But, I will probably go back to my pink one eventually. I like the simplicity.

It is fun to switch it around once in a while, but I did like your pink one better. I was going to change my background recently and the "cutest blog" site was acting up and I couldn't make the change. I need to go back and check it.
