    hello,

    my wordpress blog is at http://stolendesign.net/jesse theres lots of stuff on there but please don't leave due to information overload.

    Specific things you might be interested in are some songs I have recorded http://stolendesign.net/jesse/?cat=17.

    Mainly I guess it's the install itself that is going to interest you.

    feedback is welcome and appreciated.

    It looks nice, except that with my old eyes I cannot read anything because of the tiny font size.

    mmm good call on the font size, my Dad says much the same thing.

    yeah i didn't really think that title through. ha

    Going to second (third?) the font-size call. My "comfortably well into my 30s" year old eyes are struggling a bit. The design is nice though, looks good.

    so the font is to small then?

    It's not impossible (my eyes are actually older than most around here). I think it's not so much the font SIZE as it is the lack of contrast against all that white. Now, I'm not a fan of black background sites at all. But neither am I a fan of white background sites.

    Philosophizing: for years, we've had black ink or graphite on white paper. Now we have the internet, we have the rainbow at our fingertips, and still there's vast expanses of plain white background with black text (or in your case greyish).

    I don't revisit sites with white (or black) backgrounds. Try using some colors. (um. Not that my opinion means much....)

    I'd agree: a little to small, and too light.

    In my opinion, you can -- perhaps -- use tiny fonts (although I'd call yours smaller than tiny) for short bits of text (like menu links; again, perhaps) ... but assuming that people will squint to read your entries is assuming a lot.

    I'm not sure what i make of this … BUT I have given the body font a bit more contrast.

    Yeah. It's better....

    What to make of it.... nothing, if white is your thing. Or black.

    But white, black, and shades of grey are so - limiting.

    Hey I really like your pictures page. What did you use for it? A plugin (which?), or did you just start posting your pictures as blog entries?

    I don't really see the need to use 32 million colours just because i can. I find I play around with colours then come back to white.

    It's somewhat ironic to be having this conversation on a site where it's all about the white black and grey.

    As to the gallery, it's a plugin from http://qdig.sourceforge.net, I wrestled with it a bit but it's all there. The developer is very thorough with his support to.

    The extra contrast helps -- at least for me. :-)

    Exellent work!

    Dunnoe if you changed the font size or not, but it's perfect here (Mac: Safari and Firefox) I love 9px type (1em @ 62.5%)

    That gallery is so pretty, it really out to be a plugin!

    beautiful.

    "I don't revisit sites with white (or black) backgrounds. Try using some colors."

    I was taught to put black text on a white background if I wanted my visitors to actually read my articles, instead of cursing my name because they can't see them. Every site I've designed has had a white background. I'm an artist, so I know color has its place---and its place is not behind text.

    Very nice except for the small font size or lack of contrast. Now that I see you can get qdig to integrate with WP, I may try it again. The galleries look very nice.

    Nice design. Enjoyed the music.

    How did you do the picture albums? Did you code that yourself or is it some kind of plugin? I've been having problems getting PhotoPress to work, (sigh!).

    hey thanks!

    The Gallery is a plugin detailed in my post above ... or the footer of my site. i also used the wp-plugin for qdig (which is the gallery plugin) which i forgot to mention earlier. Again I had to edit it a bit to make it do what i wanted.

    "color has its place---and its place is not behind text."

    hehe

    Your font size is small. I really like the page tools on the Jakarta theme [increase-decrease font size; print page, align-left/right/justify text; and bookmark this page] and all except bookmark work great in firefox -- but forgetta bout MS Explorer. The font goes from small to gigantic.

    If anyone has a fix for the Jakarta page tools or a multi-tool script please let me know -- Thanks !
