I'm just about done making some necessary changes over on Style Bard Shoes, and next I'm going to be redesigning Style Bard a little bit. But I'd like to get some opinions from you.

Would you rather keep the background black, like it is now, or would you prefer to see it in white, like SBS is now?

Would you like for Style Bard to stay focused on fashion-related topics, or would you like to start hearing more about my personal life, while I continue to post about fashion as it integrates with my life?

Any other changes you'd like to see? Please send them over using the email link on the sidebar, or leave a comment.

We're movin' and shakin' over here. Go take a peek at the redesign going on at Style Bard Shoes. On top of aesthetics, I'm going to be adding some exciting new features. I want to really define my baby-sister site, give the shoe-loving readers what they want.

As I grow online and my affiliates and experiences grow, I want to reflect that in terms of your experience. I do know that this growth on my part (from Judy's Book to SBS to HerFabLife to my current underground projects) has meant some serious slacking on Style Bard, and for that I am sorry. Once SBS is on its feet again, I'm turning my redesign eye back to SB and making some great changes here, too. I want a strong, separate voice and message for each site. (Actually some stuff is different over here already, but it's all behind-the-scenes, sorry!) I want to figure out what the original Style Bard means to me now, and where I want to go with it. Style Bard will still and always be your direct connection to my unfiltered voice and thoughts. For better or worse.

Please keep an eye out, and as always, thank you for your support and patience.

400 Posts!

Hello! Guess what? Style Bard Shoes has hit the unbelieveable 400th post! That's 400 times the Style Bard sat at her keyboard and put together a picture of a shoe she loves with details about its sale, lovingly combined to create a shoe sale bulletin for you. That's more than a year's worth of a sale a day!

Recently, we've mixed it up with some special features, such as St. Patrick's Day for a week (all green shoes), and currently, Easter for a week (sophisticated spring sandals, etc). However, I must promise you -- a makeover! Who doesn't love a makeover? Full disclosure: I haven't been excited about the site in awhile, but I came up with some ways to make the process much more streamlined for readers and shoppers alike (it'll be both more entertaining and user-friendly). I'm probably going to take a week off sometime soon to implement the changes and get on the ball. It's going to be exciting, and I hope you think so, too.

In the meantime, let's celebrate 400 amazing posts with a reminder that Style Bard and Style Bard Shoes are both up for some great awards -- the Fabbies and the Glam Network Awards! Here are the links -- pretty please throw some votes my way! It's a modest blog in these here parts, and we don't expect to win, but I'd love to represent my humble following if you can spare a few minutes of your time.
