"I was referenced to your group's blog ... from a posting at ... It looked like something I would enjoy reading.
However, I simply could not because the black background and text color selection for the blog made that impossible (for my eyes at least).
I thought I would drop you a note of "criticism" (pun intended), in the hope that whoever your webmaster is could be convinced to change those background and text colors to something that is not so difficult to read.
Please take this input in the positive manner that it was intended."
Basic legibility is obviously an important issue (which has not been much discussed since our opening posts). In response to the first post on this blog (what-this-blog-is-about) I wrote:
I think a white background would be more appropriate for an evangelical blog:
- a) more echoes of positive biblical symbolism;
- b) better approximation to brightness of original manuscripts (both parchment and papyrus);
- c) better reflection of the history of the Bible as a published book;
- d) I could probably read it without squinting.
So what do you think? Is our blog illegible or difficult to read for you? Would you like a new design? Let us know in the comments.
