Web Designers: Don’t Condescend to Boomers — 6 Comments

  1. I get grief occasionally because I have a dark background and white words on my blog, but the original design was given to me free by a professional designer and I’m too cheap to buy a new one.

    6pt fonts are eeeeeeevil. Even for us 30-somethings.

  2. Thanks for support. You know as I look at this site, it’s really pretty poor because it’s small light blue font on white. It’s a theme, so maybe I need to poke around and see what’s out there.

  3. Do that, please. One could go blind trying to read the links on the right side. On the other side of things, a senior (as distinguished from boomer) friend has a super large font on her site. I find that almost as frustrating. The same with Seniors Grand Central.

  4. Thanks, the post did some good! I’m not crazy about large fonts either, like Savvy Boomer.
