DearCrissy.com : winter edition : looksee? (20 posts)

    My WP blog: http://dearcrissy.com

    OK, just "strutting my stuff so to speak." The hard work on this theme was done by IanD, who did the Stanch theme for WordPress... Stanch done originally by someone else, for Nucleus, I think.

    I'm using the Falbum plugin to showcase my photography and artwork.

    I have obviously heavily modified the visuals of the base theme, though.. it doesn't even look like Stanch anymore. I'm sure it looks like a huge clusterfuc(...) on the inside, but, pretty on the outside... right? :)

    thanks for looking!

    I think it looks awsome... great job!

    I would however suggest removing the Yahoo ads.They take up a lot of the sidebar and I'm gonna guess you arent't really making any dough with them anyway.

    Cheers

    I made fifty dollars just yesterday... :) And I'm not joking, YPN! is paying out great right now, and I'm seeing between 400-700 unique viewers to my site per day.. even with a few clicks, the revenue is supporting my hosting easily.

    Very nice, Crissy! It's winter-y, but not overly Christmas-y, which will be nice in Januar-y.... (sorry - couldn't resist! *laughing*)

    Nice job Chrissy!

    BTW, the Yahoo ads look fine and I certainly would not begrudge anyone earning a little bit back from their blog:)

    one change - when I find a new site, I like to see their post history. It helps to get a feel for the blogger. You don't have any archives link. I'd like to see something like this included to help jump start the navigation. Just a thought.

    I do have an archives link... don't you see it? Or do you just think I should do it differently?

    I've actually tested that archive system like you linked, but since I post so often, it was making a really long page.. I might have 60 posts per month :)

    Sorry, I totally missed that (it's the florescent lights) Given your posting history, your system is probably best. Maybe one day I'll need to switch to a similar system (hope, hope)

    Nice site, I think I forgot to mention that before.
