Blog Makeover - Before and After

For a long time I have been considering the switch from Blogger to Wordpress for a lot of reasons. One of the biggest motivators was that I wanted to feel like a big boy. Most the blog designs I envy are wordpress blogs. Any who, until I see more value in switching, I am sticking with what works for me. For now, I like the changes and hope you do too.

I want to get some opinions. Here is the old design:

I was going to post an "After" picture but that seemed redundantly redundant.

The new design was inspired by the RESISTANCE post. What do you think? Is it a little too tough looking for me. After all, I watch Oprah, cry when I watch Extreme Makeover and the past week I have had a Selena Gomez song stuck in my head. In my defense, I do like Ultimate Fighting, Weight Lifting and the 1969 Camero SS (my dream car).

Let me know what you think. After all, you guys are the ones that have to look at it when you check my blog 8 times a day and comment after every post. (**hint hint** wink wink)

Mos def more masculine... but I like your old one too. And I LOVED your tag-line about climbing your own Mt Everest as we are all doing that I some way or another.
I'm glad your blog makes you happy and keeps you accountable.

I like it. Grey is masculine, cool, and calming. It's very different than others I look at.
