Note: The votes via comments and email for A outnumbered the votes for B, as you can see. I have disabled the links below and taken those temporary sites down.
Thanks to Benigna Bide’s question about functionality, I’ve got both versions of the new and WordPress-improved Suzanne Says… installed on my development server.
Here is Version A
Here is Version B
Currently, they are functionally the same, meaning neither does any ‘tricks’ that the other one doesn’t do. The main difference is the look and feel. I’ve put some posts on them so you can see how each handles things like pictures, lists, and quotes.
Feel free to get click-happy and then come back here and leave a comment telling me which one you like best. Remember – these are going away when I do the actual move, so any comments you leave on either one won’t be around for long.
And thanks for your input. I know this is my blog, but you guys are the ones who read it and if I create something that puts you off, them I’m kinda defeating the whole purpose, so your opinion really does matter to me!
Here’s my two cents worth if it’s even worth that. LOL!
Both versions load a whole lot faster than Blogger does.
Version B loads a lot faster than Version A.
This is totally my opinion, but Version B is a lot more aesthetically pleasing to the eye than Version A. It’s not as busy…
Another thought here. Could you make Version A with the major part of navigation on the right instead of on the left? My eyes tend to drift to the right side for navigation, but either side works well.
Just food for thought… 🙂
I definately like version “A” better. I am not on lots of blogs so consider it a novice opinion…
I agree with birdwoymn. Version A is much nicer. Version B is boring to look at. Nothing to stimulate the I and make you want to go there. I mean I love you and all and would probably still read but why not please the eye as well.
I think the A is better than the other.
I like the color gradation of the background on A better, but prefer the cleaner lines of B overall. I think the all-white of B is a bit…boring. I also agree that I like the navigation links on the right more, too. Perhaps a happy compromise can be reached between the two designs?
I vote for A. But it kinda sucks that only two posts are on the main page.
