Just for the record, that's NOT me in the photo
I was recently told (by a woman) that I'm too big. Generally, that would be an incredible ego boost. This time, however, it deflated my ego. Size is important to me and I always do my best to please. Unfortunately I can't please everyone.
I can hear sporadic gasps of horror . Before you scratch me off your blog list, let me explain.
In my previous post, I complained about bloggers who use microscopic, annoyingly unreadable fonts. And I boasted that my font is always LARGE because I actually want you to see what I've written. I consider it to be a courtesy to my readers, or at least to their over-strained eyes.
I had no qualms about what I said, and I was feeling uncharacteristically cocky (no pun intended, of course).
Then I received the comment that deflated my ego. One of my readers informed me that my fonts are so LARGE that she has to scroll back and forth to read my sentences.
I have never intentionally intended to induce forced scrolling. Honest Injun (no racial slurs intended).
I'm always open for suggestions and I was extremely pleased to receive the gentle chastisement. My first thought was:
What the hell device is this Bimbo reading my blog on - - a cell phone made by Mattel?
I hadn't thought about ipads, because I don't like them and don't use them. My large fonts are specifically for computer users, who have reasonably large monitors.
In all fairness, anyone who endures the agony of scrolling simply to read my humble blog should be commended. It's not my intention to cause misery of any kind. Well, not much, anyway.
So, here's my question (and not a moment too soon):
Does anybody else have a problem with my BIG FONTS? Have I unintentionally inflicted any of my other readers with the heartbreak of ESS (Excessive Scrolling Syndrome)?
If so, let me know and I'll consider decreasing my font size. Even though it will shatter my ego. Not to mention piss me off.
My fonts might indeed be annoying, but you have to give me some points for my humor.....
