I click 'next blog' on blogger and wonder "why do so many blogs have a black background'. Nearly half of them are black. Some have a pink background, others are just white with pale circles.
Since plain white seems bland and business-like, perhaps the blogger wants to be 'un-bland' or cool. On the other hand, perhaps they feel dreadful and black reflects that mood.
I like the blogs with photos. I recently saw one of a person's trip to Iceland. (Sorry, forgot the link). The girl is an artist and that talent shows in her photos.
Now, if only we could get rid of these stupid adverts that clutter the blogsphere!
