I've decided to do something a bit different. My site has always tried to be more than a blog, and "skillful". I've never been good at web design so my sites always look bad :p
What I have done is written a site that is just about my blogging and although it connects to the same news system (and therefore the same news) it is meant to be has JUST a blog.
I quote maddox
"I've chosen a black background for most of my text because it's easier on the eyes than staring at a white screen. Think about it: your monitor is not a piece of paper, no matter how hard you try to make it one. Staring at a white background while you read is like staring at a light bulb (don't believe me? Try turning off the lights next time you use a word processor). Would you stare at a light bulb for hours at a time? Not if you want to keep your vision."
The site is basic, but so is google and they get millions of hits a day. So shutup. Although I'll have you know that the site is completely CSS driven and Is Valid XHTML 1.0. So it's well coded.
Anyway. Hopefully people who don't have internet working (josh), get internet working soon (feel free to give me that screen too).
And the link for this site!
It really couldn't be any different.
On the topic of dark sites, I also tried this colour scheme as I like ucosty.net/matthew's site which is dark.
