I’ve changed my blog theme to something that features black (or gray, it seems)-on-white text, for those who have long asked for it. Comments on the new design would be appreciated, and will sway me on whether or not to keep it, thanks!

    Yes, a thousand times yes. Easier on the eyes = more eyes likely to come around and hang around = your (very useful) data reaching a wider audience. One humble blogger’s opinion.

  2. MUCH more easy on my eyes and brain. I can barely get thru a paragraph of white-on-black, but I can read black-on-white forever. Go for it, sez I.

    i don’t know if it’s that i’m tired right now or something, but this is really irritating. keep the old one or maybe have two themes and allow people to choose

    Though I didn’t mind the old theme too much, this one’s definitely better.

  5. I slightly prefer the old theme, but I know that different people have different headache/epilepsy thresholds than myself, so imho the trade-off is worthwhile.

    It _is_ easier for eyes, though slightly more black font would be probably even better and more clear. It’s not that the old scheme was not good, it’s just this sheme tires the eyes a bit less.

  7. Yes, I like it. I find it much easier to read and pleasant looking.
    I have noticed your side bar for the first time – whether I found the previous amount of black confusing or another reason I can’t say.

    Much better. I think there is some research that suggest that dark text on light background is easier to read.

    Thank you! The white on black was a real strain.
