A Question of Fonts

enternetusers Site News 6 comments

Today I had an email from a reader who suggested that the font of my new design might be a little hard to read - especially in large slabs of text. What do you think?

I’m taking an informal poll in comments below. I want to make reading this blog a natural and easy thing so if the font is hard on your eyes I’m more than willing to make some changes.

To see a post with lots of text look at this one as a test.

Let me know what you think and I’ll try and adapt the overall thoughts into my design.

  • Just happened to be online when you posted this, so excuse the quick response!!

    I really like the new layout and must say that I don’t find the writing hard to read at all, I’ve checked the ‘alot of text’ post and various others and I can read them all fine, I actually like the font, what is it??

  • I think its fine. What font is it exactly?

  • Perhaps it is a little bit narrow…

  • Arial Narrow, right? I think it’s fine also, but perhaps you could offer an option I’ve seen on other websites where the reader can pick the size of the font? Several tutorials exist for this online. I say gauge how many readers complain about it within a certain period of time and then you can make a decision on whether or not to change it.

  • I’m fine with the fonts.
    Have you considered creating a favicon though?

    They add that extra professional touch

  • I think the font is OK. Maybe a couple of changes would help - a bit less space between letters and a bit more “gutter” (whitespace) on the left and right sides - but I wouldn’t make any major changes.

    I found the font on your old layout very hard to read, the new one is much better.
