Opinions Needed

 
This morning I was making the guys their favorite Pudding Cookies , and I was thinking about how I haven't updated here for so (too) long. Working full time and raising busy boys saps me and sucks my creative energy into oblivion.
 
I've always envied those bloggers who don't have to work and their full time job IS their blog. They create these amazing posts and gorgeous pictures. I was once able to do that and I LOVED it....maybe someday I can again.
 
Until then, I think what I may need is a new look. That's where I need some opinions....I'd love to have a more simple, clean, organic look for Sunday Baker. Something that is more "me". What do you think?
 
Do you like the layout I currently have or do you think a change is needed?
 
And, if you know of a blog designer that does a beautiful job but doesn't want my entire month's income to do it, please email me (tanyab30 @ charter.net) or comment here.
 
THANK YOU!

Hi. I like your blog just the way it is. I love the colors. How long have you had it like this? Again, I like it.

Save your money for your delicious recipes. I like the way your blog looks

I personally love the way your blog is right now, but do whatever you feel is right for you! One thing that might be helpful (unless I just haven't found it) is to add a page that is just all of the recipe names in their categories with links to the posts. I enjoy looking through the healthy living recipes but have to sort through each post. I'm fine with it, though if that's not something you want to do. I'm glad you posted again!

Thanks for the opinions-I really do value them! And Amanda, I fixed the link to the cookies :)

I like your blog the way it is. I personally just want good recipes and it doesn't have to be fancy for me.

your blog is very user friendly, love the cartoon of you, if you change anything maybe a few boys hanging around in cartoon image waiting for the Sunday Baker to give them the baked goods. enjoy you blog so many of your receipes I make with my 7 grandchildren (not all at once)they love to bake,cook,make candy etc. You need to remember this is your outlet,just a fration of who you are,a wife,a mommy, work outside the home,crafter,baker,blooger just keep your focus and when you can blog you blog,when you cannt post on fb,when you cannt do that your priorites are being met FAMILY FIRST (but a quiet outlet is needed,just visit blog land when you can.

Please don't fix it if it isn't broke. I am a fairly new follower and love it the way it is. In fact, the photo of the cookies on the rack is so tempting I just want to reach in and sneak one. I couldn't so I popped a few in my own oven from a supply I keep frozen in balls ready to go.

Just linked to your blog from Two Peas and I think your site is great! I see no reason to make any changes - especially when you are already busy enough! I need to tell you that I pinned one of your cookie recipes on my Pinterest Board, but will of course delete it if you have any objections. I will also add it to my Favorite Blogs I follow board if you don't mind.

I love your blog as is!! BTW you don't have to have long posts, just funny day to day posts are cool, too!

Also, have you ever given any thought to having "guest" bloggers from time to time?

I love your blog the way it is... I always have!! I think I have blog-related ADD because mine has had at least ten different names since I started doing it. I love that yours has stayed consistent.
