Re-Designing My Blog?

Lately I have been feeling that my blog needs a face-lift.

It seems so dark, yet that was completely the opposite of what I was originally trying to achieve.

I am using bright colours to make it interesting, and a simple layout to make it easy to follow.

Yet I have had the urge to completely re-design my blog.

I have some ideas which I will implement once my essays, assignments, and exams are out of the way!

What would you like to see on my blog?

I've been thinking of redesigning my blog too. I like the design of yours though; it's dark, but the colours stand out and are easy to read. I actually think it looks more funky than dark, but I don't know if funky is what you're going for.
My suggestions:
-add a blog roll?
-use warmer colours?
-try a new template?
-rethink the header?
Funny thought: if you can, take a scene fron The Office (since that's one of the first things I think of when I hear "that's what she said"), and put yourself in it. I don't know if that would be allowed though...copyright and all that.
Hope that somewhat helps!

I would like to see more rainbows and perhaps some puppies as well.

Actually, as long as the content is good, it doesn't matter so much. You've already got that, and a nice header to make it your own. A blog roll with something other than Perez Hilton is the only standard feature I really see missing.

I really love your blog layout! Its one of my favorites! I sort of mimicked it a bit when we created the ihave1wish blog because I love the neonness of it!!!!
It is definitely far from dark! its 80s meets today!
And, def. keep the header!!
But, i would agreet that the blog roll could grow! hehe!
keep up the awesome job! I really enjoy your content!

Laur Lore: Thanks for the suggestions! I am definitely going to give it more thought once the craziness of final semester is over! I was going for a funky look originally, but I've noticed a lot of successful blogs use light backgrounds. I'll have to think about it!

My boyfriend made a similar suggestion, except he thought I should write to the writer's of the show and somehow get them to put my link into the show- ya, because that's going to happen! ahaha Thanks for your suggestions!

Phronk: Rainbows and puppies- hmmm I'll have to reaaaaally consider that! haha

You are right about the blog role. To be honest, I have been neglecting for some reason. It seems as though that is the only blog I faithfully visit every day, if not more than once a day (sad, I know). I will def get cracking on that! Thanks so much!

Emlocks: Thank you for your compliments! I was going for that whole look when I started it, but I'm one of those people who get bored with things after awhile. I'll get highlights in my hair and a week later I'll want my original colour back! haah

I'll have to take a look at the I have 1 Wish blog, you posted it on our class blog right? Thanks again for your suggestions.
