Weigh in Wednesday

Light vs. Dark blog background

Uh, this is tough. I never really thought about it. I am a rather girly girl, though, so I'd go for anything pastel, pink, purple, baby - blue. I think dark backgrounds can appeal to me but the rest of the blog has to look very epic too then.
One example is the Parajunkee website -it's dark but it has those cool animations and the great fond!
I just noticed that the post background on that site is white and while I don't think that's a must (look at my blog, duh!) I certainly believe it's important that it does not take the tiniest bit extra effort to read the text!

  1. I like this question :) I find it funny because I'm not a complete girly girl at all (i'm not a tom boy either), I'm kind of in the middle. My fav color is blue not pink, but my blog is totally pink lol! It's a salmon pink but pink nonetheless. In the beginning, I didn't picture my blog to be pink-themed but lol you get carried away... Hehe

  2. Great answer! I totally agree with you on reading on a white background...it just feels really effortless. I guess that's why books are all printed on white-ish backgrounds anyway, haha! I really like your text background, though! It's a bit dark, with character, but it's not too dark.

  3. Good response, I couldn't agree more. I think the biggest issue is if the background color and text color are contrasting.

    1. Yup, I sometimes wonder how some bloggers are able to read their own texts :)

  4. I agree with you. I'm not a fan of just plain white backgrounds, though. I love your background and how it looks like someone's doodles. Very cute! The blog has to be easy to read, too. :D

    1. Aww, thank you! I'm glad this design exists because my own doodles? so not made for the public eye!
