Thank You, Thank You, Midnight Lily!!


A girl needs a makeover every now and then, and I was so depressed about the way this blog looked before - so generic and dull and ... bloggerly.

Some time after Midnight Lily had morphed the Visitor the moodiest, scariest dude in the blogosphere (though where has that banner gone now??) she left a wistful comment on his blog about how she longed to take the appearance of my blog in hand ...

I got in touch with her. She designed. I suggested. She tweaked.

And here it is. I absolutely love it!

Lydia Teh said...

Hey, nice header! Bright and breezy, but I think if you size it down a little, it'll look even better.

suanie said...

lil ms d said...

Yvonne Lee said...

Hi! Changes are good. Spells fresh to me.

Hey, how about putting your caricature on the header?

Sham said...

Yeah - I agree - should have Sharon's caricature on the banner.

Take a look at this website: www.psbooks.co.uk

bibliobibuli said...

bibliobibuli said...

Chet said...

LOL, as I was reading the comments, I found myself thinking "but the size fits Sharon, wat ... "

*please don't hit me*

As for the look, hmm ... quite chinky, wor.

Alex Tang said...

wah, Sharon, nice, very very nice. but I agree with the others. A bit smaller...

starlight said...

very very nice! but have to echo the others' sentiments about the size.

bibliobibuli said...

i've dropped a line to lily re. your comments, and many thanks for them

animah said...

That's not Sharon. That's Dora! Aw Man!

Yvonne Lee said...

Aminah! You got it right! That's Dora. I was figuring for a long time until you mentioned Dora. Anyway, everyone loves Dora and everyone loves Sharon.

Lotus Reads said...

You're a lucky girl, Sharon, that's a great makeover, I really, really like it! :)

I'm scheduled to have one around the end of October - I can't wait!

Spot said...

Looks great, but i also must add to the "smaller, please" vote.

Wd be even excellenter if it were your eyes peeking out! Failing which, a Sharon caricature. :)

boo_licious said...

Wow! I love it esp the Sharon lookalike on top. If Midnite Lily wants to revamp my blog, I'll hire her straight away.

The Eternal Wanderer said...

Looking good, Bib! Neater and less compressed. Very wholesome! ^_^

*^_^* "slimmer" header's been passed on to sharon already.

bibliobibuli said...

Hi Sharon,

Beautiful header. Perhaps now you want to change the colour of the top bar (suggestion: silver?) and also the colour of this background to something lighter than dark blue.

I haven't been here for awhile, and what a surprise! I actually like it. Is that your real bookcase in the back there? Lovely. You've helped me keep in touch with all the great literature in English out there, as well as other literary issues. Keep up the great blog!
