New Blogger, new color

I finally surrendered to the "New Blogger" collective. Resistance is futile.

Allegedly, this is a lot easier. We'll see; so far, it seems the same, but with more bells and whistles. As it is, some of what I had on my page has gone away, so now I must get it back.

But--I did get to change the color. I thought green for Ordinary Time would be nice. What do you think?

Hi Father! The color itself is nice but I find it too dark to read on comfortably...

I like the green, but the gray lettering is a little too light.

I would stick with the green, but darken the font colour, or change it to dark blue maybe, or lighten the green. But then that would not be a nice green.

Way too hard to read--and readability is extremely important. Personally, I like consistency for a blog and would stick with a color and use it as my identity. But then again, I don't have a blog so...

I've been on the new Blogger for a long time but am still using my old Classic template (which the new Blogger blessedly allows you to do). I've never seen a compelling reason to go with the new template system, especially since the only annoying thing about editing my template by hand was waiting for 1000+ pages to republish—an annoyance eliminated by the new Blogger's dynamic page creation. Besides, the TicTac theme (a variant of which I use) wasn't translated well to the new template system.

Having just finished Disc 4 of Ballykissangel, green is my new fave color (or colour...). And if it isn't growing nearer to St. Padraig's Day, I'll eat my shamrock.

I agree that the color is a bit harder to read. (But then, I probably shouldn't talk. Mine is almost impossible to read, and I do nothing about it.) Finally, I don't really care, just so long as the "Fr. Martin Content" doesn't change...

Don't hold your breath for "shocking pink" . . .

Nice, I like the wider columns. The color looks good too. I have no problem reading the text on my screen.

Recently came across your blog. I like how the site looks, the green color isnt too pale or too dark. I like the new blogger because I can do my Google Mail and blog posts without having to log into various sites at once.
