WordCamp Notes – Attractability, Readability, Irresistibility Online

Liz Strauss smacks John Pozadzides around over his blog design while talking about what goes into good design.

  • readability – white space is your friend. Echoes from those technical writing classes.
  • John P. edits his CSS on the fly… and gets crap for it. Hehehe.
  • adjust the type based on the font
  • different headers should have different font sizes – h1 twice the size of the default font
  • you should care about what your blog looks like and that it doesn’t look like everyone else’s – who else with
  • a canned theme feel like they are being lectured by the pricipal?
  • using archives – using dates vs not using dates and archives
  • related posts – put key words on every post
  • look at the wall and then look back at your blog – where is your eye drawn to?
