My New Rating System!

I am always looking for new ways to improve my blog and one of the things I felt would make my reviews more interesting was a unique rating system.  With the help of Parajunkee Design who also designed my blog I now have a unique and fun rating system.  Tell me what you think!  Thank you to all my fellow bloggy friends who gave me your opinion on what you thought I should use (the dragon and the tea/coffee cup was very popular) but I ended up going with a less noticeable element from the header but made it a little more unique.  It is both Harry Potter and slightly Alice In Wonderland inspired and I need to offer a huge thank you to my good friend Esphixiet at five by five for her help in coming up with the "rating" on the labels.  For an example of how my rating system will be used click here.  The worst possible rating is, Drought of Disaster and the best is, Elixir of Excellence.  Make sense?

This new rating system is absolutely AWESOME! I have to admit, I'm a bit jealous of you now. Though I'm looking forward to your next review and your first chance to use your pretty new ratings! :)

Wow! They really pop on your background. I love the quirky design - reminds me of love potion #9

Amber said...

OOooOO maybe you could do a "love potion #9" for ones to add to your ultimate favorites...? Not every perfect score makes it to the favorite list [at least for me].

I kind of want to watch the movie again now :D

Lindsey said...

WOW thanks for all the comments and LOVE! Parajunkee is an excellent designer and very quick and best of all her prices are very, very reasonable! I backtracked to a few previous reviews to add my new rating system and I LOVE IT!
