where do we go where have we been?

As you know BA has been around a while now, we started on 360 as a little joke and I had so many emailing me sending me PM's on 360 "add this" and "do this" so along with my own posts on there a lot of the posts on BA's 360 page were thought up by others some even written by others under the BA handle .... ha ha you thought I wrote everything on there didn't you well I didn't others had the password for the
BA 360 page, it wasn't always me whistling

But here though, it is mainly me well seems like it anyway and yes I know you can't be anonymous on here but the anonymous name of BA doesn't mean the same as "hiding" it's more like "Hello my name is ..... and I'm an addict"

We want you to stand up and tell us what you like to blog about, why you blog what puts you in the mood so to speak hee hee
Bloggers Anonymous has been around since when ..June 06 a joke a little play on the addiction that we then had for 360 that we still have for blogging where ever we are where ever we come from even those form MsN who **shock** don't blog and seeing as we are going into our 3rd year now I want more member participation Joy was always great for that, we've lost Joy into the great blog in the sky, Dana well she's somewhere on the Rez , Snow Bunny no idea don't think she knows either but Susan(Red7) myself and Mister E are still around we will be as well great bloggers never die .. or is that once 360 famous always 360 famous ?I don't know
Anyway we are are still around, thing is right so are you guys and you do know how to post on a group right ...right you do don't you haven't forgotten or anything?rolling eyes

Readability and size

One of the most important things for anyone reading your page is readability
If they can't read what you've written they won't read it

Now I've seen a couple pages today (yes I've been looking) that where either blue on a dark background or had a flashing gif background I opened that one and went "OH [swear removed]" and closed the page didn't even bother to really look at what was written
The blue text at least I could highlight it but the flashing background oh boy way too much sorry

Of course size (which does matter) comes into play as well, before I post I allways choose "Normal" from the font size drop down list makes the text a little bigger and easier to read

Yes I could because I use Firefox choose [View > Page style > No Style] or hold down the ctrl key and scroll my mouse wheel so text is bigger and on a plain background but hey lazy person here I like to read things straight up

So if you are a theme designer or you are just starting or maybe you don't know anything about CSS and use Custom Colors or a default background, please make sure that things are easily read
If you have to cross your eyes and squint at your page to read it then chances are others will have too as well so make it easy on everyone remember when you are posting what color your page is it's an easy mistake to make because compose is black on white to make the text colour a dark color by habit .. or even yellowish orange or brown..

You may have to highlight some parts of this so you can read it
