Blogging? Or just writing words?

If you're blogging with .Text I thoroughly recommend reading Josh Ledgards guide on CSS and adding some style to your blog. I've spent a few mintues and made some "improvements" to my blog.

    Hey that was cool… I pimped *copied the css* for my biztalk blog 🙂

    Cool, although a lot of people only read most posts (unless long) in an aggregator, which generally means that the style loveliness is lost.

    Hey Kevin, what about all those readers to get here using MSN Search (or some other search ending). Don’t forget them.

  4. Kevin Daly says:

    I don’t forget them, trust me, nor do I subscribe to the (somewhat Scoblesque) view that styling is pointless for blogs since nopbody goes to the actual sites anymore (which is an exaggeration).

    I was just pointing out an unfortunate fact (and I think it *is* unfortunate – I’m very much in favour of people making good use of CSS, which is why I’m one of those people who nag about CSS support in IE not being finished yet. In spite of the fact that I’m too lazy to do a good job of it myself – I’m ashamed to say my latest effort ( actually falls into the "Bloody Hideous" category).

    I too do most of my reading through an aggregator, but depending on whatever survey you beleive 70-90% of people still just use IE to read blogs. A magority of my blog hits come from google searches… Not much I can do to make the RSS feed look better, nor would I want to really control how it looks… but I know a lot of people that just browse to my blog and wanted to change things up for them.

    To be honest, I normally just use aggregators to alert me to posts that I might be interested in, and then go to the actual web site to read them.

    I like the full experience, so to speak.
