Sidebar

Are you chuckling, Debbie (in NY)? I've shared with Debbie before that when life feels "out of control," I change the blog....something "under my control".

I finally got some of our new family photos loaded into the sidebar...but I can't decide if I like the big photos, or if I should go back to thumbnails? What do you guys think? Does it make difference in the loading time?

I like the photos that are there. I also liked the thumb nails though. I don't know which one I prefer.

None of the photos want to load for me, but I've been having trouble with my 'bronze' level DSL service lately. We've been praying for you as well- you and your kids are such an inspiration to me. I can't imagine being in your situation with my five!

I like the larger photos, which makes it easier to see all the lovely faces of your family!

I like it and it didn't make it longer to load for me. I have cable internet, though.

I didn't have any real issue, but then again I have cable, and your site has been cashed in my web-browser. Sites that have been cashed always load faster then sites that have not been cashed.

You can clear your cookies, cash, etc and test your own site speed using: http://www.numion.com/Stopwatch/

Remember not everyone has cable or DSL, tons of people still have dial-up. You want your site to load in 5 seconds! That's the best,

Up to 10 seconds is okay, but you may start to loose those readers that have dial-up still.

If it's more then 10 seconds then it's bad for everyone!

Linda - I also like the larger ones so I can see the FACES of everyone.....I'll leave them large until I have more time to upload thumbnails if that is the direction I go.

Thanks for the input.

Becky, my 5 are much bigger than your 5....

Sis:

You know we love any foto's of you all. However, the big ones show more detail. Whatever!

I like the larger photos. So much easier to see all of you :)

I like this blog template too.

I'm praying for your family.

De'Etta,

I love the big ones - very happy :0) And mine still loads fine.

I'm cracking up with you about changing the blog... I think I do the same thing!

Sadly, I've been neglecting mine for the last two weeks. We've been busy playing, and I'm working on a project with a friend.

Still praying for you all,

Julie

Love the new look!

Berry Patch said...

It loaded great and I love your new sidebar.

De'Etta @ Choosing Joy said...

LOL - I don't know that the new look will last long. I had put the patriotic 4th look up the end of June and was leaving it until we arrived in Japan (due to be 7 July in Misawa)...but you know that story.
