Google+ Reading Teen: Vote on our Button, win a book!

Vote on our Button, win a book!



So, as you may have noticed, Reading Teen has had somewhat of an identity crisis.  We just can't decide who we are.  So we need your help.  We are trying to decide on a button and we want to know what you think!  Here are your choices:

#1 The Star



What's good about the star is that it is easily recognizable and it's what we've had on our header since our creation almost one year ago.  Plus, it's pretty.

or

 #2 The Chess Pieces

Photobucket

What's good about the Chess Pieces?  We're sometimes known as "the blog with the chess pieces" so they're kind of like our mascot!  Plus, it's pretty too.

Here's the new one.....based off of your recommendations!

#3 Red Chess Piece





Give us your feedback, and if you want, you can enter to win a book off our Second Hand Saturday shelf!!  There are a gazillion books to choose from!!

  1. I chose the one with the star because I love the burst of red. I do like the chess one, but not as much as the star. Good luck in making a decision!

  2. I like the chess pieces button - although I think the chess pieces would stand out a bit if you add some red to them - like how the star button has the red star except make the chess piece red.

  3. The red of the star definitely pops. Is there any way you could add a chess piece next to the star one #1? That would look really cool. And then you would have both in one button.

  4. I like the chess piece because I associate chess pieces with your site more than stars (because of the chess piece ratings in your reviews). Yet, I think the star button looks more eye-catching. I agree that if one of the chess pieces were red, that'd probably sway me more toward that button.

  5. I agree with the idea of adding some red to the chess pieces one.

  6. I like them both but I think the one with the star is more you!
    Thanks for the chance to win a great book and I hope I helped with the Identity crisis dilemma!

  7. They both have good points: Chess is YOU and the star has red which increases attractionFangs, Wands and Fairy Dust

  9. I had to vote for the red star. That is what first caught my eye for your website. I think it fits so well! The chess pieces are cool but that is your rating system. I so hope the star wins! Good luck with your contest! Either way, I will still come visit!! :)

  10. Great idea for a contest. I love them both, but I totally recognize you by the star and I like it because it has some colour to it! Good luck!

  11. Voted for the star one, and I think it's prettier than the chess one :D I don't really like the text placement for the chess button.

  13. I think the Chess Piece one is better, but I think it needs red or another color in it to stand out more, like a red chess piece or something.

  14. I like the first button better because I'm really not a fan of the text placement of the chess piece one. If the text was different on the second one, it would have been my pick.

  15. I like them both, but I think that the star appeals more to teens.

  16. I had to revote because I love #3.

  17. I revoted! I love the third option that you've created. Nice work!!

  18. Ricki- YAY!!! I'm so glad you like it!!

  19. I re-voted, too. The new button looks GOOD!

  20. I prefer the chess, for the third one, the red chess picture a bit to stand out, instead of blend in with the background. Perhaps you could try apply a few brushes on its edge?

  21. I voted again, this time for the Red Chess Piece, although I wish the star was bigger, I liked the star!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I liked the red star one best. I was going to go with the chess piece, but I didn't much care for it being black and white. Maybe if it had a little bit a color to make the image stand out a bit more. ^_^

  23. I love the red chess piece! That is a great compromise.

  24. I like the chess pieces too, but like everyone is saying, I would add some color in there. :-)

  25. I like the star. Mostly because I think the chess piece is too twilighty. :/

  26. I have a blog button from you on my blog roll on my site (http://www.ilikethesebooks.blogspot.com) from a while ago. It is like choice #3, but the chess piece is white. That one is my favorite.

  27. I like the star becasue as a lot of people said, it's like your signature! when ever I see it, I always think of Reading Teen!

  28. I like #3. Although if #2 had some color I would of voted for that. Great contest.

  29. I would've chosen # 1. But When I saw that you did a button with the star and the chess piece - #3, i think its perfect! I recognize the colors black and red as reading teen colors.

    ReplyDelete
  30. For me, the #3 is the best. I like the star as well as the chess and red color. Please pick #3! =)

  31. I like the chess pieces (#2) the most!
