A New Look for Doodle Whore

Sunday, March 02, 2008 with 15 comments »

Hey kids. I'm trying out a new template for the blog. It's the html version of getting a new weave. I was experiencing growing pains with my old two column format. Please let me know what you think of the new look by commenting to this post. Also, give me a shout out if anything is behaving strangely, missing, or causes your computer to explode. Thanks for your input!

    Very nice template, and well organized. That being said, hate (which is a strong word) being taken off the page for an ad. I'm increasingly seeing this trick on a lot of sites. Just annoying. Otherwise, welldone!

    Not to knock Keith, but I use Firefox and Adblock and Adblock by default blocks almost and ads it encounters. I don't see the ads at the bottom of the blog unless I'm on Internet Explorer.

    Other than that I'm happy with the blog redesign.

    I totally agree, Keith. That full page ad thing is super annoying. Keep in mind that I'm just a lowly blogger trying to make a couple of pennies here and there (cue violins). Someday when I'm huge like Perez I can remove the intrusive ads for more passively annoying ads.

    All seems fine in IE7. No glitches or issues but I do have to say, the old one was so pretty and clean. It was soothing. This one seems less soft if that makes sense???

    I really dont care as long as I can see your drawings.

    I hate those full page ads too so I dont use them but then again, I dont make much from the blog. It's my other businesses that I make $$ from so I can tolerate it.

    I turned off the full page ad feature. It's ultra annoying and I wasn't making any bank on it anyway. And when I say "bank" I mean pennies. Literally.

    DW,
    Maybe we should add those widgets that other blogs do that say "buy me a cup of joe or maybe a cookie". Then it takes the person to paypal to donate. I can beg with the best of them.

    Your new weave, I mean template, looks great!

    I don't see any text on the black background unless I highlight [click & drag w/ my mouse] an area. I could just be me...BTW -- using Firefox.

    Thanks Emma. I've had similar problems using Firefox where some elements don't fully load. You might have to reload the page holding the option key to freshen it up. I'll investigate.

    Hii everyone...
    i'm a subscriber of your blog and i absolutely love it!
    The new template looks fantastic... organized, love the header!! :D
    I'm using firefox and i can't find any problems with text or links... everything is visible...

    hiii poorbritney, i have that think with a coffee and a piece of cake to see if someone wants to buy me some, but thats not much successful. of course i don't have the courage to take it off, hoping someday someone will make use of it!! :D

    Anyway Doodle love ur new template and keep doing a good job ;)

    I love it, very beautiful!

    Gilmore never ever left PoorBritney a comment :( and I may have another breakdown, and DW I do like this one but your other one was good too. Both clean and not cluttered. No issues in IE7 so far.

    Have been reading this fairly religiously ever since you got linked (lucky fellow!) in GOTA, and I gota say I love what you've done with the place. Looks fab, nice and clean. Looking forward to the next doodle! :)

    Your new look is snazzy - I like this design better than the old one. I agree with Poor Britney, as long as I get to see your doodles I don't care what format you use! Keep up the good work..
