HELP! Should I do a blog design update?

I am considering doing a blog design update.  I was just going to change a few things, but now I am thinking I may do a complete overhaul.  What do you guys think?  If you are an email or RSS subscriber then you will have to email me or click on this story to take you to my site so you can comment.  Thanks!

Aww….I love your header. It makes me want to go run in the grass and be free like a kid again. 🙂 Sometimes that's how I feel when I catch a really great deal!!

But I always say….if you heart tells you that your blog doesn't feel right, then change it. It's like your own little home. It needs to feel comfortable and needs to feel like "you."

I say go for it. If you think your blog could do for an update than it should.

Tip for your new one theme: I love how simple it is to find things and how uncluttered your current blog is. If that helps at all.

It's always fun to play around with the blog. Be sure and share places you've checked out for those of us who may want to jump on the wagon with you. The only negative I have on some blogs is that if it takes too long to open due to all the graphics, then I don't become a regular

I love your layout and design, but understand the desire to shake things up a bit and change the room around. Are you thinking new header, format [two column instead of three], a little of both? You could always set up a test blog of your new format, have your readers check it out, then make a decision on a final change, too. Just a thought. Either way I'll still visit. =)

Coupongeek – thanks! That is what I was going for when I first found the design. I still love the header, but I do wonder how first time visitors see it (since there is nothing about finance in it)

Kristy and Kathy – I will definitely keep the organization. I was going to add a drop down menu so I could organize it even better. And I was going to change the sidebar pictures so that it loads more quickly. I do like my current template. The part I keep going back and forth on is the header (and I would change the colors up a bit too if I changed the header).

Anne – I like that idea. I am going to keep the three column layout with the columns on the bottom. I can keep the categories/top posts/archive on the front page that way, which I think makes it easier to navigate. The two column layouts always seem to end up with lots of stuff pushed way down on the page.

Oh, and I will definitely share info as to who I go with and who else I found.

I definitely like drop down menus
