New Look for the Blog

There are going to be some changes around the woodlands. To start with, the old blog is getting a facelift, with the Bear right up front, where he belongs. The Bear has made two versions, one that contains sort of a mission statement while signaling the playfulness of the Bear. The other is simpler.

In a sense, this is your blog, a gift from the Bear, to the extent you want it. So the Bear likes to solicit feedback on changes. Do you like the first one or the second one?

  2. Mission statement is good. #1.
    Thanks for your daily gifts. You have a generous ursine heart.

  3. I like the green bar version. I would replace "fish" with "tear heretics limb from limb", but that might be difficult to fit in.

    1. Oh, I could fit it in, but it would be very tiny. And the New Bear prefers conversation and an easy style of proselytizing.

  4. I faded in the interior of St. Peter's Dome for a more complex, layered look, but also it is perfect to show that the Bear is just a plain ol' Roman Catholic Bear. I am wrestling with the direction for my blog, and many people probably won't like the new emphasis.

  5. I like the mission statement - but the first time I read it I thought you were comforting the fish also!

    Any way to work in goats?

    1. The Bear is delighted at such a whimsical reading of his deliberate non sequitur.

  6. Version #1 for me, but whatever you do, don't change the Bear!

    1. The laden Bear is original artwork by my daughter, so I would never change him. (Although he did get flipped from looking to the left to the right!)

    1. Looks like there is a consensus. The one that's up now, with the fade into St. Peter's dome, is what we'll use. So people like the pretty picture. I wonder if they're going to like the next article?

  8. I love the new look, especially the motto! :-)

Your comment will likely be posted after the Bear snuffles it. Please, no anonymous posts.
