Keeping It Simple

I really enjoyed this posting on www.zeldman.com: web design news & information since 1995.

THANK YOU for the screen shot. I was actually already aware that the type on my site is big. I designed it that way. And while I’m grateful for your kind desire to help me, I actually do know how the site looks in a browser with default settings on a desktop computer…

The first thing you might notice reading www.zeldman.com is that is it easy read, and yes, it is true, he uses really big type on this latest version of his web site in order to best share his thinking with his audience—and to think outside of the box. That’s when it occurred to me that one of the things that I am enjoying about blogging is the ability it gives me to present my thoughts to our oven community without the clutter of traditional web design, and all of the demands of links, navigation, colors, fonts, logos and layout. It gives me a sense for freedom to just think and write. Nice.
