Save Me From Myself  

Sunday, February 10, 2008

Hello all.

I have been playing around with the look of my blog, as you can probably tell. I don't know much about writing any kind of code, but I do know how to cut and paste, and that, as it turns out, is enough to use a template. :)

The problem is, although I like the new look (I didn't like having a boring generic template) I've already received one comment that the white on black is too hard to read, and therefore that reader may not come around as often. Now I have spent the last fifteen minutes or so trying to figure out how to change fonts and text colors and all of that sort of stuff so that the page isn't annoying, and I am beginning to wonder if I was succumbing to my own perfectionism problem, trying to get the look "perfect," or if I was actually trying to make the blog easier to read.

Anyway, I figured at this point I better quit while I'm ahead, or I could be up all night obsessing about this. I'll probably be thinking about it all night anyway!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

    Wow, the whole concept of your blog is very thought-provoking and challenging...good stuff.

    I'm afraid that I'm going to have to agree with the other person who said the text/background combo is hard to read. I noticed in your profile that you're 35...well, I'm 10 years older than you. Brace yourself, because in 5-7 years you'll get to go through the vision changes a lot of us old gals are experiencing right now. :)

    I really LIKE the concept behind the colors you're using. It's unique, it's pretty, and it shows a lot of personality. But, as much as I hate to say it, it IS hard to read...I'm sorry.
