Bold New Look, Same Old Content

Welcome to New Look Gentlemen of Leisure! 

The blog's second birthday has come and gone, which makes it high time we change things up a bit with a new look. Let us know what you think of the new layout, color schemes, and the logo I cobbled together using free Photoshop-esque software I found online!

Also, blogger has recently added the ability to insert jump breaks into posts. So for posts of significant length, you'll now see the beginning of the post, followed by a "read more" link that takes you to the full post. 

So you'll see something like this...




...which takes you to the rest of the post. This help cut down on page load time and will be especially nice for our readers with fancy mobile devices.

    It looks sharp! Maybe the only teeny tiny suggestion I would have is to outline Gentlemen of Leisure in black, if possible. Yellow can be a difficult color on which to focus. Otherwise it's very fancy and I like it!!

  2. yes i think a black outline might make the title pop a bit more. Otherwise it's great. I like the faster load times and the new color scheme.

  3. Thanks! I'll do what I can, but I make no promises: the software I'm using isn't a whole lot better than MS Paint.

    Frankly, I'm hoping that the banner as it exists now is only temporary: a placeholder until I prevail on my brother to use his art degree and fancy Mac software to put together something a little more polished and professional for us.

Comment. Please. Love it? Hate it? Am mildly indifferent to it? Let us know!
