Look and feel of blog, plus comments26 August, 2006
I’ve decided to change the way my blog looks because I found the typeface and font size of the previous theme (I think it as Simpla) was difficult to read, especially when it’s text heavy (which is the way I tend to write).
So I hope you find this easier on your eyes.
I find that with the themes available, it’s always a compromise – I find something with the clean looks I like, but the fonts are too pale and wimpy (and there’s no facility to increase the font size except by adding “STRONG” to the html).
I’ve also taken off the need to register for wordpress membership if you want to leave a comment – I didn’t realise that this was the default option. A friend of mine who blogs with blogspot told me it deters comments when you have to register with the blog site. I agree.
Another thing my friend raised was that she had problems searching for my blog because there is no search facility for blogs on the wordpress.com homepage. Just a joining button. Hmm … why is this when blogspot and livejournal have search facilities?
