wednesday randomness and blog envy

Studio Waterstone seems to be addicted to red for some odd reason. Let's face it, a touch of red doesn't hurt anyone now, does it?


Blog Envy: Blogs,Banners, and Design

When you visit a new blog what's the first thing that pulls you in - the VERY first thing? For me it's the banner. After that, the content must be fun and fascinating. But it's the "front door" that is first noticed.

Here are a few ratha nice examples (as we say in the south).
I hope you agree.

So tell me...

What grabs you first, design or content?


  1. Design pulls me in, but it is the content that keeps me coming back.

    And now I must know...are those rivets on the red leather? I'm loving that new design!

  2. I agree Kelley!

    They are rivets, but I didn't put them in. They decorated the front of a handbag that I took apart! Thanks for the idea though. I love the studs and I could add something similar with rivets. :)

  3. I'll look over a blog because of the design but I don't return unless there's content...just as Kelley pointed out :) Still, this is a huge reminder that I need a new blog header...maybe this weekend!

    Love love love the red, I almost bought myself a third pair of red shoes this weekend and talked myself out of them...how many pairs of red shoes does someone really need??

  4. I do look at the banner first off. Color is important to me, but the content will keep me coming back.

    Red - everyone needs red in their lives!

  5. first the design, then the content. Like the other ladies said, I won't come back for design if the content isn't there.

    red is FAB - O!


I love reading each one of your comments. Thanks for your visit and have a wonderful day.
