Just curious...

...can everyone see my new background? If you can't, let me know. If you can, what do you think?

Update: For those of you who say that it's loading slowly, is it slower than the old one or the same? Do backgrounds load slower than a custom designed template? Anyone know? I know that sidebars that are full of widgets seem to make a blog load slower, but I didn't think the same was true for a background.

  1. I can see it, but dare I say it, I don't think it is as nice.

  2. I like it, but it's a little slow-loading. Might be a problem for some.

  3. I have the same problem as Love2Learn Mom. The old template took a while to load, too, but on my machine this one seems even slower.

    That said, on this machine the template I'm using also loads slowly. Hmmmm....

    :)

  9. Loads fine for me, just a second after all the other parts of your blog, including sidebars. I'm with Gae, though, to me, it's not as nice. Thanks for being humble enough to ask our opinions!

  11. It is a little slower than your last one. I think your background should reflect what you are feeling. If you like it, that's great!

  13. I like it. I like how clean the whole blog looks. It loaded quite fast for me.... maybe faster than the other. Maybe not, but at least as fast.

    They all take a long time but yours didn't seem to be long at all.

  15. It loaded fine for me too but on my old computer it usually takes longer for backgrounds to load.

  16. Loaded just fine for me! I think it's lovely...simply elegant!

    Although my son loves it, I'm not sure I can actually bring myself to use the garish fall template I'm currently playing with. ;)

  24. I love it - glad you told me about it, as I wouldn't have seen it in the Google reader. Loads the same for me (DSL). Very antique and elegant.
