We are making some serious changes at Layers of Thought – and would appreciate your opinion


Can you believe it but Layers of Thought is almost one year old? May 21 was the date of my first awkward post. My goodness. I can’t believe what I have learned over the last year, and I still have not begun to figured it out yet.

When I got the bug to start a blog I had no idea what I would name it and what it was going to be about. In fact the name came to me in a flash as I was setting it up on Google.

Well, considering that things have changed and developed since then, we feel a need to keep up with different times. So John and I have come up with several new theme names and a few headers which we will be considering for our new blog concept.

Help us choose which one to use. The new names we are considering are on the blog logos below. We like all of them but are not sure which one that we would like to represent us. Below are the four we have created to choose from:


I'm thinking the one to the right since the blog name is black and easier to see?

Of the two below I’m thinking the top one since in the bottom one, well, there is quite a lot of bottom in the picture.



But on thinking about it further, this last one is particularly telling in that he’s reading the book upside down, which definitely fits the new blog title. So dear readers and friends, what are your thoughts?

End Note: To update this post for newer readers, when first starting Layers of Thought – our original header used the picture below. It was quite fun and our blog was remembered because of this great shot.

Hence the “April Foolery” we created with the pictures above. If you would like more fun please see the comments from this post. Needless to say we had an absolute blast the entire day and taking the above photos!


Here's to April Fools!

I can't decide if this is an April Fool's joke or not, nor can I decide if I'd rather it be one or not. On one hand, I think "Layers of Thought" sounds pretty great and has meaning. On the other, any single one of those pictures would make my day, especially the 2nd and 4th ones. They just make me laugh for some reason. Maybe it's because I'm strange...

Um, April Fools?

I like the one with the black title. But boy is he brave to be on the web like that.

Bill said...

Yea, that's really a tough call! Oh dear me.

Should get a pic of you both in the tub, reading books upside down.

And maybe a bigger, more complicated word than thoughtlessness.

"Layers of skylarking monkeyshines." Hmm?

;-) (Cute post.)

The one with black text, and then of those other two the one with not so much bottom ;)

ThePageTurner said...

This is hilarious. John has great humor!!! I'm impressed. The black letters show the best I believe.

Aarti said...

Well, hellooooo John! ;-) I would go with the blue, of course. Go big or go home, I say.

Happy April Fool's!

Kerri said...

Happy April Fools - But since you asked anyway - that last picture is priceless.

Missy B. said...

I agree with should be a picture of both of you reading in the tub! ;)

I would go with the black letters, if you are serious about this.

April Fools!

ThePageTurner said...

Hahaha! This is what I get logging on before my first cup of coffee and not realizing the date. Is this an April Fool's funny?

Charlie said...

This is a TOUGH one because you're making me think.

#2 is okay, but too much feet. (nice tootsies, John.)

#3 would be good with the book upside down.

And I don't think your blog is thoughtless--just the opposite.

BTW, Happy April 1st from a fool. Or something like that.

Shellie! I was so taking this seriously until Logan pointed out that it was April Fool's Day.

Though the one at the bottom should replace the girl you've got at the top -- is it a coincidence that it's at the bottom, and you can almost see JD's own bottom?! ;-)

Too funny; I like the Utter Thoughtlessness one, but black instead of pink letters :)

Unknown said...

April Fools Everyone!

We hope you enjoyed our post, we had a blast putting it together. It has been in the works for months.
