Do you have a Blogger blog and want a new look? Well check out this site I discovered for some great artsy free blogger backgrounds.
Beautiful Blogger Blogs?
I was just checking out a member's website and I was struck by how beautiful her blog was. It was a simple free blospot blog and i thought, has Google come out with new backgrounds? Google blogger backgrounds have generally struck me as not terribly exciting, but definitely serviceable. And of the course the (free) price is right. But I never really considered the backgrounds to be especially beautiful...
Here's a screenshot of the site, Gabriela Bijoux, the site whose background intrigued me so.
Isn't that background gorgeous? I love how it's offset with the daisy.
Not a Google Background...
Back to my question. Did Google come out with new backgrounds for it's free blog platform? No, they didn't.
It was simply a background supplied by Shabby Blogs.
Shabby blogs has lots of interesting stuff to check out for the free blogspot blogger.
Seeing this site got me thinking...
(This is where I should note - I have a head cold as I write this and the neurons aren't quite firing properly today. Forgive me if this post doesn't quite "connect" as lucidly as usual).
It got me thinking about the importance of the website background for jewelry sellers.
The Importance of a Good Lookin' Website for Jewelry Sellers?
It can be argued a few different ways...
Should you make a visually gorgeous site when you sell jewelry? Or should you keep it clean and simple?
Etsy for example has a very clean look that really showcases the handmade items that are posted for sale.
I like clean and simple myself, but then again a visually pleasing site could really grab a visitor right off the bat and might be enough to keep them away from that back button. I'm not sure which makes more total overall sales in the end.
Just a few thoughts today from my fuzzy head cold head.
P.S. What are your thoughts? Clean and simple? Or do you like a visually stunning website theme when you shop? Which do you think makes more sales? Comment below.
