Design Consideration

Are you designing your blog templates from scratch? Consider this:

Not surprisingly, male subjects tended to assign higher ratings to pages designed by men, and females preferred sites made by women. But the researchers said they gleaned important tidbits by looking more closely at the ratings.

Women seemed to like pages with more color in the background and typeface. Women also favored informal rather than posed pictures.

Men responded better to dark colors and straight, horizontal lines across a page. They also were more pleased by a three-dimensional look and images of “self-propelling” rather than stationary objects.

So, my blog is so manly then, being rich with straight and horizontal lines. I don’t think I don’t want to add more colours now, not yet. But I do have a lot of pictures to attract woman who, according to this research, prefers informal pictures.
