I've been asking questions about my blog on Twitter, and a few notable things have come back:
- Text shadow on hover makes you feel seasick
- Text shadow is fine on headers
- Colours on the footer are hard to read
- It all feels a bit busy
So, many of these things can be remedied simply, but I can't get it out of my head that you just skim the content because it's all bunched up. The white space for the text is compressed against two differently coloured, high-contrast sections which mark the edge of the world. Instead of helping you focus, I feel trapped when reading it.
So, I reach out again, what would help alleviate this? What would make you read more on this blog. It's not a for-profit enterprise, it's simply putting my opinion and some of my work onto the Internet.
