For keeping colors looking good together since I have no inherent sense of fashion or design I use color schemer as it will show you which colors are complimentary. There are other tools available that do the same thing but I use this one.
Hey Mark, good improvements.
The only thing I would say is to distinguish the links from the rest of the text. I can see a difference, the color of the links reminds me of your background color (a sort of dark blue), but they can easily missed.
Range, you mean the unvisited links in my entries, right? Right now, they’re #347, and the background, and the background is #333. I can see how that would be a bit easy to miss. I’ll have to think about what color would fit. The schemer suggested #7171d0. It looks alright, though a bit fluffy.
EFL Geek, the color schemer’s a geek tool if I’ve ever seen one. I wonder how it works.
Yep those are the ones!
I didn’t even notice the numbers until you mentioned them. Maybe they should be black?
Tom, originally I thought about black. The reason I decided against it is that I thought it was too intrusive. I don’t want people to notice the numbers unless it’s a post with a lot of comments and they’re reading through it fairly careful. They stick out on trackbacks, but I’m hoping they’re as unobtrusive as possible.
Range, I’ve tried a couple dozen colors… still looking.
Yeah, I can understand that!
I used to do a lot of graphic design and coming up with the right colors can be a challenge sometimes.
Hello! I found your site at random, while doing search for teaching English in Taiwan. My sister and I are both ABC (american-born Chinesee), can speak/read fluent Mandarin she moved to Taiwan, and assumed it would be so easy to snap up a teaching job. Instead, she experienced lots of reverse racism! But she ended up with a great job as a drug store manager- not anything she ever imagined being able to do. Anyway, just wanted to give my support. You have a great site going. Jia you!
Reverse racism! I’m not surprised. It’s good to get some testimony about it though.
Hi there. 🙂 I know this is quite an old entry, but I wished to comment to thank you for this anyhow. I was looking for a way to make my own comments in a different style class and this helped out immensely! So thank you for your contribution!
Thanks – this worked a treat. Just a note for any WordPress users looking to this on a multi-author blog, you can replace the email@example.com bit with the get_the_author_email() function.
