When I was busy preaching about the importance of proper font, a funny thing was on the way and I was not aware of it.
Blogoversity feedback tours took me to distant lands of adventure. Some blogs had tiny font, so I suggested them to increase the font-size. They thanked me for it and I wished them well.
( I so wanted to use that word–blogoversity, my friends didn’t take that as a suggestion for our new alumni forum, finally I am using it anyway!)
What happened next?
When I visited those blogs again–I found a large font on almost all of them. I was elated, because I thought they had considered my suggestion gladly. In turn, upon meeting them again, I thanked them for their consideration.
Friendly and good?
What is so funny about it?
I actually forgot that I had used the zoom function of browser every time I visited those sites. Most of you know about it–(CTRL+++) would zoom the font out on any screen. On most of them, I was using a 125-150% zoomed version of font. As I used this function, the browser stored the enhanced version in its memory for every site. This setting remains intact unless I clear cache memory of browser, so, every time I was visiting those blogs again, I was, actually seeing the zoomed out version.
I thanked them and they happily accepted.
Thanks for reading!
