Fictional Candy has a new design!

Ok, so its a work in progress.  But I just got permission today from Lidia Misfit (please see my Artist Info tab to see more of her work!) to use her wonderful Candy Zombie... and so I am slowly working out the kinks.

Still on the list?

  • Drop Down Menus
  • New Button (Edit:  I have a new button!) >>>>

So what do you think?  Yay or nay?  My goal was to get something a bit more edgey, more sexy, a little raw.  I like horror, paranormal, romance, and erotica books.  But my design previously was a bit tame, so I'm trying to amp it up in tiny bits.  A nip here, a tuck there.... I want it to showcase my personality and tastes more, and those don't run pastel. Yet I don't want to alienate any of my audiences. 

Let me know your thoughts!  I'm very new to blog design, and I don't want to switch to Wordpress as of yet.  I generally like simple designs, so I don't want to go to crazy...

And now I'm rambling.  Yikes!  Talk to me!  Tell me what's up!

Much love
Liz

  1. Nekkie mens? Maybe in your button? I'm a fan of abs. :)

    I like the color scheme. And the zombie is definitely different from the sprees or whatever it was you had. I love me a good zombie story.

    I feel the need to go and watch Shaun of the Dead.

    1. Yeah, that candy was from when I first started my site, didn't know anything about anything, and wasn't even sure anyone would read it. It was definitely time for an upgrade!

    1. Thanks! I think this one is a little more "me" than before :)

  3. Looking good so far Liz. Learning how to "tweak" a blog design has it's ups and downs but it makes your site "personal" and if you do changes yourself gives a sense of it really belonging to just you as well.

    1. lol very true. You'd never know I used to design websites (back when the internet was kinda new!) and I had a 4.0 in college with programming courses. But those only really taught me that I hate programming! :) It feels good to play with color and design though!

  4. Yay! I love redressing my blog. It's kinda like changing purses, but not nearly as easy, but oh so fun to do and wear.

    1. Yes, exactly!! I have the hopes of getting a few favorite little themes and rotating them. I don't think I necessarily have to just stick with one thing to create my Fictional Candy "brand". Maybe my "brand" can be "change"! :)
