A Note From The Blog Administrator (Dave):
A while ago I mentioned that I would change the blog look every month. I've found that I get several comments about the blog. Some find white print on black backrgounds hard to read, some find black print on white backgrounds hard to read. Some like really bright backgrounds, some prefer darker somber ones - and they like them for reasons more personal and substantial than 'that's pretty' 'that's not'. All have legitimate reasons for their requests. I do not believe that I can actually do a blog that is designed with absolute universal appeal and meet all needs of all people with disabilities. Therefore I decided on monthly change. That way hopefully I get all of the people some of the time. I appreciate the feedback you give me, I just hope that you appreciate that, if you don't like it right now, wait a few weeks and it will change. Even the change thing is a solution that doesn't work for all - I have some readers who get very upset with change and would prefer to have me leave it the same all the time. For these readers I have an agreement that I email them two days before the change so they are prepared. That has seemed to work.
One reader had the solution of simply coming on to the site, highlighting and copying the text and then pasting it into another background on their computer that was more friendly to their needs. I liked the creativity and the problem solving done there. So maybe if it's a bad month for you, design wise, you can figure a solution and share it.
Be patient. I'm trying my best to meet all needs.
