I have changed the background of my blog to Queen Blue (CSS Color #436b95). This helps the typeface of my blog to look its best and to be easily read (that’s important in blogging you know). I don’t want to pay for the custom CSS option from WordPress.com so I needed to be creative within the bounds of the free options.
Queen Blue is a good blend of lighter and darker shades. I recommend it if you want a change in how your blog looks without many visibility issues. Check it out.
