New Blog Header

What do you think of our new blog header? It was designed by Rachel, one of the 13 talented children of Loren and Gloria Wissmann. The Wissmanns have a traveling bluegrass/Gospel band and also happen to be friends of the Duggars. Look for a giveaway of their latest CD soon.

Rachel also designed a new header for our Facebook page. (Click here to view.)

  3. Hello, it looks really nice, great job! It made me wonder if Scott Enlow made new pictures of the whole family like the ones you use here on your blog.
    Because it's been a while and it would be nice to see some new ones :-)
    Above all I'm really looking forward to the new episodes (hopefully someone will put the episodes on youtube) and a big thank you to you ladies for keeping this blog, it's really nice and for us, from The Netherlands, a great way to keep up with the family
    with best regards from The Netherlands

  4. I think the new blog header is great! Nice to see Derick now in the line up. One suggestion: I think it should say Jill and Derick instead if Derick and Jill. Since Jill is the Duggar. But regardless its great!!

    2. That is annoying me too. Jill and Derick, not the other way around :-)

    3. My husband and I are simple people, and are Christian, but not extremists or fundamentalists (or whatever you would call the Duggars) and I always put his name first also. He is the head of our household, why would the head not come first?

  5. Beautiful redesign! Thank you so much Lily and Ellie for your dedication to this page. I love following the Duggars.

    Thanks!

  20. I love it! Only TLC needs to release some new family photos because everyone has done some serious growing up since these photos were taken!

    ReplyDelete
  21. IMO, the script if vey pretty. It's hard to tell if the photos are updated ones. Aren't the kids more grown up now? Are they the same old photos? They need to be updated. thank you

    ReplyDelete
  22. Love it!! Great job!! God bless ya'll!!

  23. It looks great! You girls do such a great job of honoring the Duggar family and keeping us informed. Thank you so much!!!

  24. I like all of the names, but the title looks old. Kind of 90's style. But hey, the title doesn't matter. Great blog thank you for posting every day!! I would love to see how the younger duggars are doing also. Thanks again!

    ReplyDelete
  25. No way!! I love the new blog header. I can't bealeve Rachel did this. I'm friends with the whole wissmann family. Josiah wissmann is a pilot and his wife abie and their two kids Joanna and Asher came to stay with us for a few mounths while they were here joshia instructed my brother David to fly. And now Dave's a pilot with a little more instructing by Ben atnip help because Josiah couldn't instruct him all the way cause he could't stay here that long. Thanks wissmanns and atnips, duggars and most of all thank you Lillie and Ellie for this wonderful blog. :) God bless you all.

  26. You don't have to publish this comment, this is just a random question I was wondering about. Do you know what that Duggar girls' hair is naturally like? I've seem them with super curly hair all the way to straight hair. Are there any pictures of them with their hair unstyled and just natural?

    ReplyDelete
  27. I like the new blog header, especially the look of the Duggar Family in yellow. Great Job Rachel!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Looks great! : )

    ReplyDelete
  29. I know it's hard to do, but I think it looks cleaner when the background on each picture is the same. Other than that...it looks great:)

    ReplyDelete
  30. I looks awesome! Now you just need updated pictures of everyone! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  31. I like it a lot!! Awesome job!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I love it but i just wish all the pictures would have been renewed not just Marcus' picture because all of the duggars have grown so much since than. Thanks anyway!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Wow!!! Rachel did an excellent job!! Looks awesome!!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Love the new design but just wondering if there was going to be any photoshoots in the near future? With the children/grandchildren getting older and all the new changes. Just curious if u were going to update the rest of the photos along with the new design?:)

    ReplyDelete
  35. I think ya'll should update the pictures!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I like the new script blog heading. Keep up the good work Rachel

    ReplyDelete
  37. LOVE the new header, looks great!! To the poster who asked about the girls' hair, I am not an authority on the subject, but I recall an episode many years ago on some of the ways the family saves money, which included the girls perming their own hair. One of them remarked at the time that Jinger has naturally curly hair, like her mother. I don't think the girls are perming their hair now, but I think they use a curling iron. Any way you look at it they each have beautiful hair and I am so glad they wear it long, so pretty.

  38. I love the new blog header! Very pretty and eye-catching. I like that you updated Marcus's picture too. :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. It's beautiful! Just wish the pictures were updated and Josie was next to Jordyn. I know you're going in birth order but she looks separated from her 'family'. JMO :-)

    ReplyDelete
  40. What a cheerful looking header, great job!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Kind of like it but there are some changes I would make:

    - write the names of Derick & Jill with the same big letters than the others
    - I would make the whole header blue
    - Update all the pictures not just Derick & Jill's and Marcus's.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I love the layout and script! But I would like updated pictures,but I know it is hard to get updated professional photography of their family :) Thanks for updating Marcus' and Jill and deriks pictures!!

    ReplyDelete

    The only photos that are new are of Jill & Derick (taken in November) and of Marcus (taken in March 2014). The rest are from May 2012. The Duggars took updated pics, but we never saw them.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I agree with others who have said Jill's name should be first. Beautiful banner. Love the fonts she used. :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. Can we have some updated pics of everyone? Those are from like 2 years ago:)

    ReplyDelete
  48. I was thinking last night before any one had posted on this blog subject that Yes the New header is Great but given time some of the younger Duggar's from Michael up wards need up dating some where in the not to distant future. Then I thought I would be great if Lily and Ellie did a Younger ( when they where little) and older version of all of the Duggars in one of their blogs. I know when the Duggar's have birthdays older and younger photos are posted then but it would still be great to see what they all collectively looked like as young children /babies and compare it to now. Maybe some of them looked a like as babies and others not.

  49. I love the new header, nice job! Everything on this blog is always so tastefully done. We really appreciate you keeping us 'connected' to our favorite family! Love from Alabama!

  50. Since a few people have said something about Derick being before Jill I guess I'll throw my two cents in. I'v e noticed that a lot of people put the man's name first no matter the context. Is that good or bad I don't know just something I've picked up on with many couples I know. mostly older couples but because of the Duggar's values I think it works.

    ReplyDelete
  51. This new style header is very pretty. However, I think that updated pictures of all of them is needed at this time, if you're going to update the header in the first place. Also, Josh and Anna's family and kids need to be separate, not in birth order of JimBob and Michelle's children. It looks as though Josh's 3 are his siblings instead of his own children...

    ReplyDelete
  52. Love the changes but agree that Josie needs to be before MacKenzie

    I LOVE it! How did you meet Rachel? I read the Wissmann family blog too, and I know they're friends with the Duggars. Thanks to all of you for your good work on this blog

    ReplyDelete
  54. I really like the new design. The only thing is I think Josh and Anna should have their kids under them. They are not Duggers children but Duggers grandchildren. And updated pictures would be nice also. Thank you so much for the blog and all your hard work

    ReplyDelete
  55. I really like it! But, PLEASE update pictures! Also, make the entire header blue, it looks kind of off. Really well done. I'm impressed.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Not so great, old pictures and out of order.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Why dont you post some of the negative comments. Post one, post all

    I meant November 2013 which is the first time Jill & Derick met in person in Nepal. That's also when they started courting as Derick asked Jill to court him at the end of their trip just before Jill & Jim Bob left to go home.

    ReplyDelete
  59. It is lovely it would just have been nice to put Jill and Derrick rather than Derrick and Jill as it is Jill who is the Duggar, just because she is married doesn't mean she becomes second best.

    ReplyDelete
  60. If I can make a suggestion:

    Update all the pictures, especially Mac & Michael!
    It should be Jill & Derick, not Derick & Jill. It's a blog about the Duggars! Keeping the letter J continuous!
    Wow, some of the kids have changed a lot since. Really, update the pictures!

    Great job guys! :)

    ReplyDelete
  61. thanks for your efforts here on the blog header, but I agree that it is Jill who is the "Duggar" and her name should appear before Derick's. Also, all of the photos need to be updated. These kids are grown and still look like children; ALL of them. Also, yes, Josh's kids don't belong in the JimBob/Michelle birth order; it looks like they are indeed Josh's siblings instead of his own kids.
    The script is nice, the photos are bigger, and closer appearing,, but it's the same blog. Update all the way, or don't at all.

  62. "It's just a blessing to be able to be part of the lives of these beautiful families through the blog world...." Yes, yes, yes! You took the words right out of my mouth! :) Thank you, Lily and Ellie, Duggars, Bates, etc., etc.!

  63. Generally speaking, I have wondered if putting a lady's name first is connected in any way with 'ladies before gentlemen', but I really don't know. I don't know if one is more correct (etiquette-wise) than another, or if there is some other reason for putting the man's name first (the man being the head of the home, for example)?

    ReplyDelete
  64. I am sorry to be different from the majority but I don't like the new blog header as much as the old one - it looks more old fashioned. Also it would be better without the grey and I think the names are too big. I hope you are not just going to post comments from people saying they like it.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I love the show I watch it every day. I even memorized the names.
