New Look

Just a short post to welcome you all to Music Obsessive’s new look! After a year and a bit staring at that yellow screen, I decided that a fresh new image was called for so set about checking out alternative templates. Having decided on this one, I then discovered that everyone and his/her dog uses it from Layla’s Classic Rock to TR1-Guy. So I agonised over it for a few days, not wanting to be a copycat, but in the end thought, sod it and did it anyway. It suits my layout perfectly so here it is. You can feed back through the poll on the right side bar if you wish your thoughts be known on the subject.

PS – Hearty congrats to Layla and Bloggerhythms who both feature in the top 100 music blogs as calculated by Alexa. Well deserved! Go check ‘em out.

I like it! It looks clean and fresh - and your profile pic looks very music scholarly and author-ish :)

One of my friends once said one of my pics looks very author-ish (surely that must be a word?) and I laughed, but secretly it has been cemented in my thoughts as 'the' author pic. If I ever get there - sigh!

LOL! 'music scholarly and author-ish' - Blimey!

And there was me trying to look distinguished...damned digital cameras.

Look forward to seeing your 'author pic' with renewed interest!

Thanks for the mention! I like the template - its the same one I use on "Writing from the Inside Out" we have good taste :)

I love the new look. It's far better in my opinion. Thanks for the kind words about my blog.

Barb/Charlie - thanks for the positive response!

Just need to get my blog up in the top 100! *shuffles away plotting*

I did enjoy the previous look of your blog, however, yellow does wear out, I realize now.

It's the time of the season for... a new look!

Nice pic, too! It could be that the stripes on your shirt subconsciously echo and reassert the authorly qualities of the books on the shelves behind thee.

Or, something like that!

cheers, Ad

Hi Adrian - thanks for the comment. Yes, I'm afraid the yellow had to go, it was driving me nuts!

Interesting comments about the photo - ever thought about training to be a psychologist?:)
