Size Does Matter

Caution - Squinting blogger at work
Is it me, or are they making print size smaller on the Internet these days? My eyeglass prescription is up to date, so it can't be that. Are demonic forces trying to deny the population access to information by making the font really, really small?

I don't want to be part of that, so I have been tinkering with the font size on NBA. But there is such a thing as too big, and I don't want to seem like I am being really loud.

We appreciate your comments, and would be interested to hear if recent changes meet our goal of making Not Buying Anything better for readers.


  1. My opinion: as a netbook user (low power consumption) your new blog design requires me to scroll around a lot more, even in my RSS feed reader. Most browsers already have font-increasing options if people want them anyway.

    1. It is good to know about the scrolling issue as I am aiming for little to no scrolling, but I guess it depends on what you are using to view the blog. I am working on a lap top.

      Thanks again for the feedback.

  2. Personally I appreciate the new look and font readability. But (as the above commentor says) I can always use the ctrl + to change fonts that I can't see well.

  3. Thank you for the feedback - it will help me make some decisions for further changes.
