No, I’m afraid I didn’t build, paint or Mod Podge an actual soap box. I’m stepping up on one. I know…”If you can’t say anything nice…” right?
I may be about to break that rule. Can I mask it in the name of constructive criticism? Or perhaps curiosity?
I certainly haven’t been writing my own blog long enough to earn much street cred (and whatever I had I lost by using that phrase just now anyway) but I am a little curious why people choose to write posts with the text centered on the page.
I don’t mind pictures that way–it’s how I place pictures as well. And then captions that go along with the pictures also look just fine centered.
Am I weird in thinking that it’s a little hard to read the words when they’re all centered? Maybe I’m just missing something. Or maybe this could be the start of a left-aligning revolution! (no political reference intended)
I’m sure that anyone could find annoyances in my own writing (my tendency to think I’m funnier than I actually am?)
And while we’re on the subject of formatting, what’s everyone’s position on the double space after a period? I’ve heard it’s been dropped down to one space, but out of habit I add 2 spaces almost every time. So let’s make a deal. Please don’t stop reading my blog because of inconsistent spacing, and I won’t stop reading yours because it’s centered 🙂
(Sorry, is that also really annoying to put emoticons in blog posts?)
Alright, stepping down now. Let me have it–do you agree with me? Disagree? Have something else to say? I wanna hear it!
