Blog Bitching: 2 of 7

Blog Bitching 1 of 7

Today I am bitching about practices many of us, myself included, do often, things that just chap my ass. I am posting a series of seven ass-chapping blog practices. If I come across as an asshole at any point during these posts, it’s probably because I am in fact an asshole.

2) light text colors: Unlike blog titles, I think colors can really enhance the text and create new levels of expression within the blog text itself, but I simply cannot stand it when an author chooses colors that are so light that they do not show up well against the grey in the background. If I have to highlight the blog to invert the colors so I can see to read it, I don’t read it. It’s bullshit. Pick a color that contrasts enough to allow me to read it. How hard is it to skip the pastels and use dark colors? Want to express yourself and your artistic sense? Fine. Do it with black, navy blue, forest green, burgundy, purple, or brown. Leave the yellow, pink, orange, azure, grey, and white crayons in the box, because I can’t see that shit to read it.

You know what I do?

Other than that!

Hmmm... or that

Wow! You can? I must give it a go... but where am *I* gonna get a bears ass and a tub of chocolate sauce from?

I'll tell you seeing as you aren't gonna get it, and are starting to freak me out with your depravity.

I highlight the text. Click drag over the text. All nice and inverse... but a shit load easier to read.

I just started using color again in my posts and I try my hardest not to use any really light colored text. Like instead of yellow, I'll use gold, but it's still kinda bright and hard on the eyes so I avoid it whenever possible. I try to be visitor friendly, but I don't get many visitors anyway, so I let whatever little bit of creativity I have shine! Just not in sunshine yeller (that's hick for yellow)!

Have a great day 5 speed and bitch on dude! Lol!

I'm guilty...yep. I realized the pinks and some of the lighter blues don't show very well...but that was during the "honeymoon" period of learning how to use the color.

Unfortunately, I used the lighter stuff when I would comment..and then after it would can't hardly read it. So for anyone/everyone I used light color on...I am soooo sorry. In my post I can fix it..but in comments...on other's blogs you can't otherwise I sure would've.

~~~ Just me, poppin to say HI! ~~

DT, maybe not guilty of this specific bitch, but you are by no means innocent, despite your frequent claims to the contrary.

Bulging, I have absolutely no idea what the fuck you are talking about. Strangely, it is still very funny.

Digdug, AMEN, BUDDY!

Sil, maybe you are, maybe you ain’t. I’m not here to judge or correct anyone. I’m just bitching.

Sinful Jes, I will bitch on, FOR SURE! This is fun. I like to bitch!

Sgt Dickhead, please remember to show proper respect for my blog guests. I’d hate to smoke you old bags and end your day with a 9-10-11 (It will take nine doctors ten hours to remove my size eleven boot from your ASS.) You nasty straight-leg piece of maggot infested cannon fodder, look lively when I’m talking to you! You straighten your shit up NOW, soldier, or so help me, God, I’ll have your soggy ass low-crawling through the saw dust pit all night!

Slide, your current dark purple is very nice. I like it a lot!

Tiller, that’s hilarious. I’m glad you’re the only one who has done that (So far)
