How about that?

While mulling over design changes, I came up with this banner that tries to mix together some of the feedback that you guys gave me. It's more "Note to Self-y" without being ridiculously cliche, and I returned to the old catch phrase. Plus, I think it gives me a lot of colors to work with.

I have to say this is a little girly for me, but it works for now. I'm a little disappointed that no one liked the martini header! That actually was my original idea for a banner before I let you guys get a hold of it... Oh well. Nothing is final for now, I was just tired of looking at an ugly page.

Note to Self: I'd still love to hear any ideas you guys may have (that means you Colby, you idea hogger!), so continue to comment away as I play with things.

I liked the Martini header, but in being a smartass, I was forbidden from saying what I actually meant.

MJ said...

Livin - No no no. You can be a smartass, but you have to still say what you mean - that's what gives it the "smart" part. Otherwise, you're just an ass.

There's nothing quite like a perfect opportunity.

I like the design too. And if you photoshop a rabid ninja squirrel gnawing on one of those pencils, it'll no longer be girlie.

cheers!

I like. I disagree that its girly. Chuck Norris wouldnt have it as his header, but most anyone else would be comfortable with it.

Note to Self: Because the voices in my head have to have a way to communicate with one another.

But, if I took away the smart part, wouldn't that make the result a dumbass?

P.S. I think that footnote counter is wrong (my numbers seemed to have increased without any additional comments).

Im a fan of the color scheme. but the banner is just OK. the font gives me an eye-ache.

(hey, you said you wanted critisism)

K - Hmmm... rabid ninja squirrel would be a nice touch...

VV - Would Chuck Norris be on blogger?

CM - HAHAHA! That sounds like a better tagline for yours than mine lol.

Livin - Only if you take away smart AND add dumb...

SM - Thanks. I'm still not a huge fan of the banner either...
