I tried to ignore the little voice telling me to change the color here, but it kept nagging at me and nagging at me. For some reason, that voice had decided the blog was too hard to read--to much contrast, too much a strain on the eyes. I was going to go gray with the background but then went, "Aieeeee!" I couldn't handle the gray and off-white. Restful, maybe, but b-o-r-i-n-g and institutional.
I tested out some various colors, and this one seems OK to me. Please let me know what you think--not the aesthetics, but the comfort. The ease of reading. How do your eyes like it? I can't live with start black text on a white background, I don't think; but I can make it more viewer-friendly.
So whaddaya think?
