  2. Thanks for the giveaway. As for improvements? Personally, I prefer a wider posting column and widgets only on one side... but that's just me :o)

  3. Hmmm, I'm new to blogging so I'm not sure about improvements...I think I'm with Sarah on a wider post column so everything doesn't get so drawn out, and I'd suggest some eye-catching banner underneath your blog name.

  4. Thanks for the great giveaway... The columns do seem a bit skinny. Other than that, looks great! :)

  5. Thank you for the giveaway! I agree with others in that the columns need to be wider. Also, you have such a cute blog name you should create some kind of visual that associates with your blog. You could have a button, header, or overall design theme. Something to do with fruit :)

  8. Well, at the risk of sounding unoriginal, I'd have to say, I'd prefer a wider posting column.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  9. I would say wider posting column and maybe change up how the labels are displayed because it takes up so much space

  10. Even though I'm new to your blog, it looks super to me and I cannot really think of any necessary improvements? Maybe a larger or bolder font for us gals with lousy vision LOL ;D

  11. I like a wider posting column too. IF you do widgets on both sides, switch your blog from a 2 column to a 3 column to take up more room on the monitor. Other than that it looks great!

  12. im an old follower and i love the blog the way it is.

  13. Thanks for the giveaway! I think if your tabs at the top were more noticeable. Other than that all out of all the other blogs I have visited today, yours loaded the quickest!

  14. I think your posting column needs to be wider than your side columns. :)

  15. From what I see, everything looks fine. If anything the labels just makes the left column a little cluttered....

  16. Thanks for a great giveaway.
    A wider middle column would be great and a little color on the banner, otherwise, all is good.

  17. It would be pretty to have a picture or drawing of fruit and books together at the top.

    Also, I don't know I am signed up on Google Connect or not because all I see is the word "Followers". Could there be something wrong with the widget.

    Keep up the good work!

    Maybe you could change the font/design of your header -- some graphics or a fancier font.

  19. Thanks for the giveaway!

    I'll throw my voice behind a wider main column. But I'll also say that I really like the collapsible archive you have. I don't like when blogs are missing that.

  21. I like it the way it is. Everything is easy to find.

  22. You need mores space for the blog

    ReplyDelete
  23. I think the blue of the background is extremely pretty, but kind of bare. But at the same time it seems like the less unnecessary stuff you have on your blog, the quicker it loads - which is a real convenience. Overall, I really like the blog! :D

    Thanks for your generosity, and for participating in this amazing blog hop. Happy Fourth of July(and/or Canada Day) ! :D

  24. Thanks for the chance!
    The only thing I can think of is that maybe the middle column could be widened. I wouldn't really do too much because the page might load slower.

  28. Thanks for the giveaway!

    I agree with some of the others. I'd appreciate having the middle column wider.

  29. It seems like the labels on the left side are overpowering that part. The colors are lovely, along with the background. The columns need to be widened a bit, so the reader can feel less claustrophobic while reading. The buttons are cute and interesting to click on. I'm glad you have the archives because I would have no idea where to go to look for something specific if I did not see that.

    That's basically it. THANK YOU VERY VERY MUCH FOR THE GIVEAWAY!! C:

  30. Thanks for the giveaway :) I think your blog is fine! Personally, I think the post column is a little skinny, i had this problem too with my blog, so I just changed from 2 sidebars to 1 sidebar. Just a thought, but I think its fine!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Thanks for the giveaway! For improvements, I would suggest a wider middle column and maybe a new header/banner at the top. Something to showcase your personality :) Love your blog though!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Hi! Yes, something to do with fruit and that would add more color!
    Thanks!

  34. Thank you for the chance to win!

    I like the idea of an identifying image at the top. It helps blogs stick in your memory to have a logo.

  35. Maybe create a button for the site? That would help liven things up a bit! :)

  37. I am not sure what improvements would be needed...I think it looks great and I really prefer blogs that have giveaway forms to fill out instead of making you write out a lot of posts to enter.
    Thanks,

  38. Other than widening the middle column, I think it is perfect.

  39. I think your blog is just fine! (: But if I had to choose one thing to improve, for me, it would probably have to be the background. When I go to various blogs, they have an awesome background that draws my attention and various pictures as well. Like in I am a reader, not a writer, her blog has a big picture in the title, something like that.
