Quick Question

I’m trying an experiment and I need your help. I post my blog posts on my iPhone, rarely looking at them on my laptop computer. And so it’s hard for me to assess, for most of you who probably use laptops or desktops to read blog posts, if the normal font size for my posts is too large or too small. So, I’ve changed my font size on my blog’s theme from “Normal” to “Large.”

Here’s the way it used to look before making this change:


Now that I’ve applied the change, here’s my quick question:

Do you like the larger font size better? Is it easier to read? Or do you prefer the way it was before?

Let me know in the comments.

Thanks.

    These elderly eyes say the larger the better.

    Hey, no fair. Your title is ‘Quick Question’. And that’s three questions. And none of the answers you get to them are likely to enlighten without knowing the platform being used.

    My tuppence: it’s futile wasting time and effort trying to second-guess such things. Even if you get it (sort of) right for this moment in time for (some) of your readers, it won’t be very long before Something Changes To Upset The Apple Cart All Over Again. At the end of the day, if you have something worth reading, those interested in what you have to say will figure out how to read it.

      Good point, but if I can make my posts easier on the eyes(and maybe more visually pleasing), for those who do read my blog, isn’t that a good thing? The gist of my question is whether a slightly larger font does, indeed, make my blog posts easier on the eyes.

        I do hear what you’re saying. But it’s rare to have web browsers that lack a zoom function (Ctrl+mousewheel is the default on desktop systems), or the ability to render content in other than the designer’s intent, although browser software on dumbphones is generally limited in respect of the latter.

        Too many fool themselves into thinking that they can tweak web content visually; the reality is that the web isn’t WYSIWIG, it’s WYSINWOG.

    Yeah, larger the better, in general, though I use the reader on my browser mostly which displays a plain font, black on white.

    If this is the larger size that’s fine

    Font is great easy to read on my iPhone but there are a couple of blogs where the font is too small to read easily

    🙂 As someone who uses their laptop computer to blog, I have to admit that I love the larger font size.

    Here is something to think about, Fandango:

    People who visit your blog via their web browsers on their computers and their smartphones will see the difference in the size of fonts.

    However, those who use the WordPress Mobile App will not notice any difference.

    Why?

    Because the formatting is different and the fonts are standardized.
