As I already commented elsewhere, stop whining about hat tips, other people had this piece a day before you did. You are living in a cocoon if you think that anyone who links to this story must have gotten it from your blog.If you want to increase traffic, you should get rid of the black background on your blog. It makes the blog hard to read, hard to make out dates, etc. There are too many blogs out there to regularly read one that causes eyestrain. Trust me on this one. Your readership will go up if you change the color scheme.
See, look at the above comment. The white letters on black background are a halbe tzore, but the green on black background is virtually unreadable. (The blue on black isn't too hot either). You want light background, dark print.
My readership is fine thank you. Though I would change the color if I knew how.
Where do you see green on black?
Can you see the name of the article, without highlighting it with the mouse?Can you see where it says "post a comment"?Nope - one can't see any of these clearly. Why do you expect people to read and comment if your color scheme doesn't even allow anyone to see where to post a comment?
YOur monitor is probably to blame. There is no green on black here.
The names of the article is in white, all caps, a breeze to read.Post a comment is in green, a very pretty dark green, that is perfectly visible against the background. You need a better monitor. Or perhaps adjust your settings. Neither need to be highlighted in order to be seen.
"This post has been removed by the author."is also not in a color that shows up well. dov bear, you're being a fool(what a surprise). I know that one can fiddle with settings. If you want to know a surefire way to drive away traffic, it's sticking with this color scheme. Obviously, I read your article, and I figured out where to comment. I'm just telling you that I'm on a decent monitor, and a lot of the links don't show up well. This is my considered opinion. The poor contrast is bothering lots of other people, who, unlike me, are not bothering to tell you about it. By all means, if you like this color scheme stick with it. But I suspect you landed up with it by accident and have no idea how easy it is to change it. So I'm telling you, it takes a few seconds to change the template, and IMO you should try. if you don't try, then don't cry to me about your low readership. If you aren't too proud to kvetch and moan about yoru desire for recognition in posts and comments all over the net,, you shouldn't react so badly to a practical tip. Also in my considered opinion. Love, your friendly anonymous tipster
Most, if not all, of the "kvetching" is shtick. Sorry you don't get the joke.
