Make It New

Keeping on a role with my ex-pats, tell me what you think of two things:


1. My new blog look. I'm obsessed with birds, and I love the double-whammy. I'm also obsessed with contrast, and red is my favorite color. Also, I thought it might be nice to finally have the context of my blog title within reading sight.


2. My new pen name. Whaddya think?

Summer Frey...that's hot. ha. ha. But I do like it!

The red is a little hard to read, but I like the red bird, and the BW header.

Hey, you asked!

Summer Frey said...

You mean the blog title? I think it's because the image behind it is blurred...

I guess people know what the name of the blog is by this point, right? So maybe it's okay.

Love the black and red...and never before notices what came before ...and this time concentrate...so I enjoy that too. The birds flying through the body are a little Hichcock-esc...but I like the change. This is a design that will stand out.

I love the bird background, I looked for bird backgrounds when I was designing my blog but couldn't find any good ones. Summer Frey is a cool pen name :-) I'm having a prize giveaway over at my blog if you're interested in winning some goodies (including some great books!)

The image in the header may be a little blurry, but it matches the birds' wings, so it works really well.

And it looks mysterious....

I've spent a couple minutes scrolling up and down, watching the birds...it's fun, lol.

I love the organization on the right, too.

I give it two thumbs up!

I like it a lot, the birds give a sense of movement, that's got to bring good luck right?

I have to admit I was going "who is this summer frey i'm following?" LOL!!! And it's you!!! Wow! It's a great look - birds flying free!!

I like it and I was immediately drawn to your blog header too!!!

Yay for your new blog design! Take care

I like the new look and the blog is easier to scroll. It was a little jerky before.

Hi Summer,
The birds are a great choice. Love the header with the cardinal. I also like your new pen name.
BTW congrats on finishing your NaNoWriMo novel.
Take Care,
Amy

i've been planning to get a tattoo of a flock of birds for a few years now, so i totes enjoy the new blog look.
And the name seems good as well. How did you come up with it?

Jules said...

I like it! Especially the way the cats seem to be looking at the birds :D

Now I feel I need to work on my graphics :)

Colene Murphy said...

I LOVE your new layout! And I had to doubt take the name. I was sure I knew who's blog it was but didn't recognize your name! I love it though! It's lovely.
