If you haven’t noticed, I’ve not only changed the template, but I’ve also upgraded my blog. This is a step I’ve been planning for a while, and I know I’m going to enjoy the benefits a premium blog brings!
Right now though I’m stuck on a conundrum. When I updated to the Hemingway Rewritten template and made the background black, the default font color was grey. A few of you expressed difficulty in reading that against the dark background, so I’ve been manually switching the color to white right before I post. This was a decent workaround prior to upgrade, but now that I can change the default color, I need your help. The device of access seems to make a difference, as I was looking at my blog with my phone today, and the grey letters were easy to read.
Here are the colors I’m considering as compared to the default right below:
The Shameful Narcissist Speaks (default)
The Shameful Narcissist Speaks (white)
The Shameful Narcissist Speaks (plum)
The Shameful Narcissist Speaks (pale cyan)
The Shameful Narcissist Speaks (pale green)
The Shameful Narcissist Speaks (light sky blue)
The Shameful Narcissist Speaks (medium gray)
The Shameful Narcissist Speaks (custom color d9d9d9)
The Shameful Narcissist Speaks (custom color 6bf2be)
With that in mind, all you need do is answer two questions:
- What color works the best for you?
- How do you typically access WordPress (computer mobile device)?
Looking at the preview, I like custom color d9d9d9 (or a close variant). It’s not blaringly white for a stark contrast between the black, but it’s not as dark as the default gray.
Let me know what you think, and if you have any other color suggestions, I’d like to hear them. Afterwards, I’ll have to figure out the exact way to actually change the font color, but that’s a story for another day.
