Troubles Reading Blog?

I've heard from two people that their monitors don't provide a clear enough delineation between the bright blue font & the black background that I used in the post before this one (i.e. it's hard to read). Is that the case for you? If so, let me know! I don't want you to be getting eye strain over this!


  1. The blue that you used for your post earlier today is the only one that I have trouble seeing against the black background. I even cleaned my glasses thinking maybe that was the problem! All of the other colors you use are fine . . . it's just that that pretty blue doesn't show up well enough against the black background.

  2. Reading on a dark background in general is hard, but that bright blue is particularly bad. The golds and whites show better.

  3. Yes, the bright/dark blue color is a strain on the eyes.

  4. the bright blue was a little harsh, lol, but the one you used today looked good!

  5. The dark blue against the black is a little hard on the eyes. The lighter blue is better.

  6. Thanks, everyone! I've gone back and changed that bright blue color on the original post . . . and will try to remember to not use it again.

    Please don't hesitate to speak up in any sort of instance like this, though! After all, if no one says anything, I don't know there are problems! :)
