New Blog Format

Today, I completely obsessed about finding a new format for my blog. I have found some great templates to start out with, but I am not sure which one I am going to use as my base. I need to look at functionality as much as design. I have narrowed down to these 8 designs. I am listing them below and I would love your feedback in the comments!

  • Option 1 - This is very clean and I like the tabbed recent posts area. I am not thrilled with the grey header on top. Maybe too corporate.
  • Option 2 - This one has some really cool functionality. I just wonder if it's too blue.
  • Option 3 - This one is really cute and I like the tree columns. It kind of says food to me. Well especially since I added the cute header!
  • Option 4 - This is a very clean blog format. I really like it. I would just need to come up with a clever header design.
  • Option 5 - This is very simple and clean.
  • Option 6 - This is pretty clean and pleasing to the eye
  • Option 7 - This is so ideal for cooking, but so lacking on the functionality front. I would like to combine the graphic of this design from Option 3
  • Option 8 - I like this design and even fiddled with making my own header. There is a lot of functionality that I haven't implemented yet.

So what do you think? I would love to hear your opinion!

Options 2 & 3 came up as the same format, which I agree is too blue. Don't really like the layout of # 6. #5 & #8 don't have enough contrast to suit me. I'd say my favorite is Option 4 because I love the color contrast of the red & white, but there's a bit too much white as you scroll down the page. Is there a gutter color option on that one?

I like #4 too... guess it's the red...! Shades of blue and white are nice but feel corporate to me...

Is it possible to use the cute salt, pepper and food images in a header for #4?
