Narrow Blog

I've been asked a few times, 'why is your blog so narrow? There are so many templates now, why not choose a wider one'. The answer is accessibility. Sure my blog is narrow when you are viewing on a computer who's screen has been set to huge resolutions. On a computer with traditional 1024 by 768 though, it fills up almost the entire screen, with a bit less than an inch on either side.

I keep the narrow width because it's better to have it too small than too large. At least the whole page is visible. If it appears too large, the user must horizontally scroll, which is a pet peeve of mine. And if you find it too small, you can just hit Ctrl+. (Firefox should even save your preference for this specific site, so others will not be zoomed but when you come here, it will be)
