MMM New Look

I need your help! After 18 months of writing Mom’s Monday Memo, I changed the appearance last weekend, and I need your feedback.

When I began writing I chose a design with color in an effort to give readers something more visually appealing than just words on a page, but over the past year and a half I started added more images to my posts and felt the green background, yellow titles with red emphasis and brown border was becoming a distraction.

Please leave a comment below in the box “Leave a Reply” so I can determine if I should go back to the original look, keep the new one, or look for another alternative. I’m anxious to read your suggestions.
