Welcome to the first ever giveaway on Something Deep and Witty!

You might notice that newer posts look a wee bit different. Being a bit of a font-o-phile, I fell in love with the Daily Drop Cap site and thought I'd incorporate it here. But is it the right look for SD&W? I want to know your opinion.

Please take the poll on the right and let me know what you think. You have until Friday at midnight. THEN--and this next step is very important--leave a comment on this post letting me know you took the poll. At the end of the week, I'll randomly draw a winner from the comments section for a free download of Fount for Kindle. (Don't have a Kindle? Don't worry! You can read the book using Kindle for your PC.) The winner will be posted here on Saturday.

Good luck!

Okay, I didn't vote in the poll, because there wasn't an answer that matched my opinion. I like the letters themselves, but I don't think they fit your blog design as it is. If your blog had a more streamlined look (like a white background, more basic font for titles, a less-busy header image), then the drop-caps would work. But with the patterned background, the fun title font, and the collage header, the drop-caps look too cluttered. So either simplify the blog design or drop the drop-caps. But obviously, design stuff is very much a matter of opinion!

Thanks, Andrea! I had similar thoughts.

"Drop the drop-caps." *snicker*

Alright, well since none of the voters left a comment, Andrea, it looks like you're the winner! I'll send you your copy of Fount for the Kindle in the next couple of days.
