The other day I found a new blog and it was so hysterical. The person was similar to myself in that she loved Seinfeld and sarcasm wasn’t a mood, it was a lifestyle.
There was just one problem.
Her entire website was laid out in center format.
I mean, how can I read a blog where your eyes have to continually skip around to find the start of the next line?!?!
It blows the very technique I employ to speed read. My brain now has to seek out where to put my eyes instead of just automatically going to where the text should be.
So, that’s the end of that. If I can’t speed read through your blog, I’m not even going to visit it.
Which brings me to another distant memory. I downloaded a free Kindle book that had the same layout. And every single review of the book complained about it. If you aren’t a speed reader, you have no idea what I’m talking about.
But if you are a speed reader like myself, you are cursing me as we speak aren’t you?!?!?!
To all of the other people who can read a 400 page book in under two hours, and comprehend it, I make you this vow:
I will not do this to you ever again.
Unless I’m writing a poem or other work which requires it to be so. And of course, pictures will always be centered in my blog. Because it is way more distracting to not do so.
So I guess my vow isn’t very strong. But I got you to read a few more lines of stupid, hard to read text like I had to suffer through yesterday.
I pay it forward like the internet is always telling me to do.
