Fontage

It looks like I'm stuck with these dopey text size options that Blogger thought it would be great to implement. So, can you help me decide which size to go with?

There is this one, which is called 'normal', and is a fair bit smaller than I'd like it to be. Bit of an eye strainer, don't you think? And there are two options even smaller than this!

Or else there is 'large', which looks like you've inadvertently put on your Nan's reading glasses by mistake. Large is right.

So what would you prefer, Valued Reader?

Normal looks normal in Google Reader - maybe you just need to tweak your style/template.

I vote normal. Also, because I follow along in Reader.

The choices aren't great. But go with normal.

Karen said...

Like you, I'm not that keen on either of them. But I think the normal one too. The large one might look a bit "shouty" with some topics...

Doesn't look too much different in Reeder.
It is a bit saddening to think that all the hard work that goes into blog formatting is lost on rss readers isn't it?

Ali said...

Yes, I was going to say too, the small font looks exactly the same in Google reader. So I'm with them.

Pedro said...

Large. I'm going blind.

I will agree with karen, go small cause the other larger one could appear to be shouty.

I know I'm chiming in late, but I can't believe most people voted for the "normal" (better name: "teeny tiny") font! I'm youngish (!), and am having serious trouble reading it.

The larger one does add a layer of old-manness, but at least it's readable! We'll get used to you speaking loudly, you'll remind us of our beloved but slightly deaf Grandpas.

Either that, or I'll have to switch to Reader (bloglovin' is no good for adjusting font sizes, obviously)...

Thanks for the input, guys.

I'm still torn, as I dislike both options. I do get what you're saying about the shouty thing, but at least it's readable. The annoying thing with the big one though is it's even bigger than the text size in the post headings. Dumb.

Anyways, maybe I'm worrying too much about fonts. Come thou font.

Do you want me to take a look at the template and see if I can make normal look... normal?

Ben McLaughlin said...

Mate thanks, if you're not too busy, that'd be awesome.. how do I give you permission again?

I don't know if this means it's fixed, but normal looks normal to me in my browsers.

In any case, I'd recommend going with the smaller size and letting the hard-of-seeing zoom in on their browsers if they need to. Large writing makes you look childish, which just doesn't gel with your sophisticated content.
