A couple of months ago, I ordered a new vacuum cleaner.
It arrived and I tried it. I found that I was not at all
pleased with it, so I returned it with a note saying:
“This vacuum cleaner sucks!”
A week later it came back with a note saying:
“It’s supposed to!”
I haven’t told why I use these colours on my website – the light bluish background, and the darker greenish colours surrounding it. It isn’t because I like these colours more than anything in the whole wide world. I think they look kind of nice, but I could probably find a lot of colours I would think was nicer to look at – but not necessarily as text background.
I have once read that your eyes are less likely to get tired, if you read text printed on light blue paper. It doesn’t reflect as much light as white paper but is still light enough to make the letters distinct, and somehow this colour should be the best choice.
I don’t know if the same conclusion can be used on computer screens – but that hasn’t stopped me from trying. In an effort to make the Blog easy and eye-saving to read, I have used this background colour and, to reduce light, an even darker colour on the sides.
Your health is my concern. 😉
I haven’t been writing for a while. I’ve been too busy doing things I get paid to do, instead of doing things I like. 🙂
I have a few things I would like to write about when I get the time.
Some of the planned blog posts in 2008 are a status on my quest to improve myself (at the moment I am working on not worrying so much) and a post about finding the truth in music (or through music? or TV-series?). That one is going to take some time and at this moment I am not sure it will be worth the time. But it will probably be fun to make the necessary research, and I think it could turn out to be both entertaining and intelligent (or I could be wrong).
What about the rest of the blog posts in 2008? Well I don’t know yet.
