A Rose By Any Other Name

As I've been finding new blogs to follow and watching blogs I've been following get make overs, I have noticed that white seems to be the trend in blogging templates.  At first it was a trend that I disliked greatly and vowed never to follow because to me... they all looked the same.  Over time though I've started to look past what I initially thought were boring themes to see the little unique differences, and now I think I like the look.

I suppose where I'm going with this is that I've been thinking of giving my blog an overhaul, and I would like your opinions on it.  First - keep the theme I have or join the trend of simpler, more minimalist themes and make it a little more personalized?  Also, do you know anyone who enjoys designing blog themes?  

Secondly - I've been contemplating renaming my blog.  "Come Along Pond!" fit well for a while, but recently it just doesn't seem like 'me'.  I don't have any other ideas though at the moment, so again... any thoughts or suggestions!

Thanks for helping me out and I look forward to hearing what you have to say!


  1. I've always kind of liked the minimalist look just because they tend to load quicker with my slow internet connection (as long as the sidebars aren't insanely cluttered with ads!! Ugh!). lol.

  2. I began to enjoy the simple, crisp white look more and more...hence my recent redesign of my blog. :) I think maybe carrying over the subdued soft pinks and beiges to a white template would look pretty. As for names... 'Simply Amanda,' 'The Bookish Rose,' 'The Catholic Rose,' 'Of Roses and Books'...

    I know I'm throwing out a lot of rose-themed ones. ;) I think you should play around with your name or a phrase you love. Excited to see how things go!
