What did you expect? Turquoise?

Alright, show of hands. How many of you prefer a clean, uncluttered blog? Nice crisp, fast-loading white background and minimal header?

Has anyone been to Mandy's blog lately? You might have noticed a slight change. She's always had a thing for color and her blog is no exception. She has claimed turquoise as her own, and ran stripes down either side of her blog. Note the turquoise in the before and after pictures in the before and after pictures below.

I used to be her primary blog layout advisor. As such, I constantly advised her to go with a plain white background. Obviously that never happened. But really, I didn't expect her to take my advice. So imagine my surprise when she took a step away from the wild side with a toned down background.

When I stumbled into having a blog of my own, you can guess which color I picked for the background. Yep. #ffffff. Who's with me?

Well, just for today, in honor of Mandy easing up on the brightness of the turquoise on her blog, I'm going bright. At least it's not turquoise.

Pin It


  1. I love it - Real Men can pull off pink, at least that's what I tell my husband every time I add some pinkness in our bedroom.

  2. hahahaha, too funny. I love the pink. :)

  3. I think Mandy's blog looks awesome... hmmm... wonder why that would be?

    I'm impressed with the pink... but I definitely think the #ffffff suits you better.

  4. I picture your blog with more of a baby pink color. Go figure :)

  5. If you go pink I will have to stop following you. Pinks tinks.

    1. OMG! It blinded mw when I submitted the comment! Get rid of it now I beg you!
