I have been using this template ever since I started blogging a couple of months back.

I have sought some comments on the readability of this blog eg. colour, font, placement of items etc. and so far, I received two comments that the white coloured text against the dark background colour makes reading difficult. I think there are many other nice templates out there especially the ones from Wordpress but I have no idea how to import it into blogger.

Yesterday, after much trial and error, I changed the template of my food blog - Hochiak! Delicious Asian Food. Am still not satisfied with it though. But I am waiting to see if people like the new look. If they do, I will just let it continue.

And then, if you might have noticed, I do review some nice food places once in a while and have the reviews posted up here. Since the reviews are based on Malaysian food, I wonder if I should put these reviews in my food blog instead.

What say you?

I quite like the white text on a dark background, in fact I'd even go so far as to say I find it a lot easier to read lol

Your food site looks very cool, that black background makes the colours of the food stand out REALLY well. Very yummy looking! :)

Change is good, change is fun, change is inevitable. Hehehe. But it is a lot of work though, to copy and paste the side bar stuffs. (5xmom who forgets her password to blogger beta)

You can get some of those wordpress theme templates from Gecko and Fly. I used one of it for my Mothering Times blog. And yes, white on black is a bit of a pain to the eye. Hehe.

Suggestions:
Please use Times New Roman font, a good basic serif font, size 12 or 10.

Also, yellow text on blue background is good.
