I have had a number of requests to lose the ‘shooting’ picture, so I tried out some new designs today and liked this one. I wanted something simple and ‘to the point’. Please post feedback in the comments section; as I have mentioned, I don’t have much of an eye for design. Ideally the design will encourage people to click on the ads every now and then… please comment on that as well, if you have experience with ad placement.

I think it looks a bit plain, not that the “shooting” picture was much better though. I’m not good with design either, so I don’t have much input. One suggestion though… a few of the blogs I read regularly have Amazon ads, that when a reader clicks through and makes a purchase, the blog gets a small percentage. A lot of people spend a lot of money with Amazon. Not sure how you go about getting the affiliation, but it may be something to consider. The ads generated for this site by google adwords, are not ads that a recovering addict would likely click on. Good luck. Love your posts.

I totally understand that its hard to choose a good theme. The gray text is a little hard to read. What about that logo everyone voted for? The other commenter is right about the Amazon ad too.

I can’t say that I minded the “shooting picture” too much. As for a response to the current I actually like it, looks pretty nice. Perhaps insert a couple orange hexagons where the : is currently? 🙂 Anywho just really glad to have found this site so great to have a place to discuss recovery and not fear criticism.
-Ope also have really enjoyed all the links on the side. Keep them coming 🙂
