Where has Lyn been?


My poor, neglected blog! I see my last post was made in early March. I have a couple of blogposts I intend to write, and I hope to be able to make time to do that over this Memorial Day weekend.

Hello, everybody! I will admit that after I had applied a new template to this blog, thinking it would encourage me to blog more, it had the opposite effect: I blogged even less. I still write the occasional blogpost for Webshoo as well as the weekly blogpost for SQPN's Catholic Weekend, but as far as my own blogs here on Blogger and my even more neglected blog at LiveJournal... well, let's just say I found other things to do besides commit my thoughts to computer.

So today, right after the recording and livestream of the latest episode of Catholic Weekend was completed, I decided, on a whim, to apply a different template to my blog. I figured KISS (Keep It Simple, Stupid) would be a great place to start. So I applied a very plain simple template (the one you're seeing now). I will work on updating links, cutting out old links and putting in new ones. I see a lot of old links on the right-hand sidebar that will need to be trimmed.

That will happen gradually. In the meantime, here's one blogpost. I hope to be able to come up with more in the days to come. Thanks for reading! xxx

I prefer simpler blog templates, actually, so I'm happy with the change! Except for the text color. Is that something you can adjust? The gray-on-white isn't the easiest thing to read. According to my browser, the gray is color #666, so maybe that's an additional incentive to use a different text color.

That's interesting. It renders itself black text on white background for me. I thought of a darker background, but then I remember my cousin's blog, and his light coloured text on black background was impossible to read. What colours would work best for you?

I remember this blog! :) I like minimalist design too. Looks great. The content area appears grey on my Chrome browser as the JohnF mentioned.

Black on white would also work for me, but that's what you're seeing, so it's apparently not rendering the same for both of us. Dark navy blue or dark purple or dark brown would also be OK. I don't remember what your original colors looked like. I know the joke is to try hot pink on slightly darker hot pink.

Ouch, my poor eyes! Hot pink text on darker pink background, indeed! :P John, the blog had a green outline! but I think it was black text on a white background. I'll keep playing around with it. Roy, minimalist looks nice and clean. I don't know what I was thinking when I chose the previous template. :P

Thanks for reading and commenting! x

Okay, I've changed the text colour. Let me know if this is easier on the eyes.

JohnF said...

Much easier to read, thanks! Of course, now you need to post something else. :)

Hehehe, yeah, well, there is that. Let's hope the Muses are with me. When I'm a little less busy. :P
