Xavier has a great blog. But I can only read 2 paragraphs at a time before I have to switch to some other website.
Michael Bane is the same way. Great content, but I can't get to it.
They aren't the only ones.
Black background, white text. SUPER eye strain. Black background with with text is saying to me "I hate you, stop reading my blog, I hope your eyes pop in their sockets like forgotten Easter Eggs that a near sighted grandpa steps on in his sandals and black socks as he putters around the yard."
And people that read at work can't look at these kinds of websites easily either.
For GOD's sake people. Black background on a web design hasn't been cool since 1998. I want to read you, but I can't. No one else will say it because they like you. They are worried you will change it and blame THEM if they complain. Blame me. I don't care. Use me as your excuse. Curse my name and call a plague of locusts down on my house. All your fans will still read you after you invert the colors, but so will I. And DOZENS of others that are silent now. Silent and blind.
But change it.
Try Blue on Red. Or Red on Blue.
BANG! - The post is over at the other blog this morning. .
