new blog background

My old blog background expired, so I went back to The Cutest Blog on the Block and found this one. What do you think? Too dark? Too pink? Too funky?

I'm not sure I'm going to keep the text colors as I have them now or not. I'm not sure about the blue...


  1. Since you asked...I find this background unappealing. The harshness of the black on white, the pink design seems obtrusive and neither seem to support your them of birth.

    Just take it for what it's worth. I think you post some great topics but I personally have a hard time staying focused to read it.

  2. Lehia, I really appreciate the feedback. I didn't design the background, so it's not something for me to take personally. My doula training materials emphasized that when making a website, it is important to consider your audience's taste and whether or not the colors and graphics you choose align with the image you want to present. I asked about the black and pink background because I honestly wasn't sure it did all of that, even though I find it appealing myself. Just because I like something doesn't mean my readers will. I also am probably not seeing it as much as my readers are, so if the colors make it hard to read, I may not notice that.
