Marketing 101. Consulting 101. PHP Consulting. Random geeky stuff. I Blog Therefore I Am.Emails from Tim About Font Sizes and Readibility
You've convinced me to start a weblog, although it will mostly be a family
thing, about my 6 year old son and what he is up to. I'm still debating
between Radio (I like the easy RSS) and Blogger Pro (I like the ease)
P.S. I tried to print out your "16+ tips.." but the type ran over the right
margin, using I.E 5.5.
P.S. A hint for your book. Most bloggers have their type size too low, and
have it fixed absolutely, so it is hard for people who aren't used to
staring at tiny type on a screen all to read it. Your friend noopy
http://www.noopy.org/bloghorn/ is a case in point.
Sorry, I do seem to have been on a bit of a tear about readability
recently, and your site seems to have borne the brunt of it.
I have Opera 5 with the banner ad installed and use it sometimes, although
I must confess mostly to test out pages I produce. I love the tabs, similar
to the ones in NoteTab. I've used the zoom function on it, but it really
screws up pages sometimes, especially the display of graphics. I also tend
to leave the "use user .css" stuff alone, so that I can test my own the
pages the way the majority of (Opera) users will see them. I haven't seen
the "little author/user mode toggle button" - maybe it is in 6. The real
problem is that I have customized IE so much with add-ons like the Google
toolbar, surfsaver, roboform, etc. that it would be very hard to give them
up, much as I dislike MS. Plus, I want to see pages the way the majority of
users see them.
At least I will download Opera 6 when I get back to my home machine - maybe
it does better with the magnify feature.
Thanks for the notes. Keep on bloggin'. I'm just starting up mine, and I am
reminded what discipline it takes to write something other than email every
