No Blacks, and No White On Black: Not a Race Thing

If you are a blogger of any breadth and have been doing so for more than a month, you should already know this.  I feel annoyed that I have to write this.  I’m trying to read other people’s writing on their blogs about writing and I don’t know why they haven’t figured this out:

NO WHITE TEXT ON A BLACK BACKGROUND……EVER!

And I mean never.  It hurts the eyes and is obnoxious to read.  Typically, you should always have darker text than the background it’s on. Lighter text on a darker background usually means you should be kicked in the junk.

In general, you should also shy away from dark backgrounds unless balanced with enough white space.

There, I’ve said it.  Now go fix your shit.
