Earlier in the week I asked you to help me pick a new color scheme for VeryGoodPoints. I asked you to pick from three options:
Option 1 – leave theme black and white
Option 2 – change to white background with 1 accent color (if you choose this option tell me what color you suggest)
Option 3 – other suggestion, you tell me what you think
Boy, was I amazed at the number of responses and how many people had such different opinions. One reader posted this comment
If you’re planning to provide the same information as every other travel blogger, then by all means change the theme to look like them, too.
If, on the other hand, you plan to continue to provide a little different perspective, you plan to occasionally remind us to act like we all share this little blue marble floating through the Milky Way, and don’t plan to post credit card referral links, well, that’s a horse of a different color
Please keep the existing theme. It’s unique and it’s a great visual cue when I hit the site that there will be something that I want to read.
Well Scott (and everyone else who shared similar sentiments) here's a promise: I am not going to provide the same content as every other blogger. I will never post affiliate links and I will remain unique!
So, what did I decide? Well, you may have seen some tweets and buzz about my newest project, First2Board, a new travel blogger community co-founded by LufthansaFlyer, our business manager and me. While our new site officially launches on March 1, I'd love to give you, my readers a sneak peak…and you can also see the color scheme that won out in the end. Here's a little hint…
So, who won the $50 Starbucks gift card? Head over to First2Board to find out!
