When I moved this blog over to WordPress, I noticed that a lot of the WordPress colorscheme was in shades of blue. So I deliberately picked one of their blues and made my banner and buttons acceordingly.
But it is not a colour I would have chosen myslf, if I were thinking about it from scratch. In fact, the very last version of my Blogger blog was themed around the colour you seee above, which I still like. Green is my favourite colour anyway, and I wanteed a kind-of midnight-greeen shade, nice and sombre so as not to offend anybody’s eyes! A nice high contrast with the page.
I was thinking of changing my scheme to this colour. What do you guys think? So far as I can tell, most people read my posts through the reader, so I’m hopeful most people won’t particularly care.
I think any of WordPress’s buttons and the calendar would continue to be the blue that you see today, because I don’t have control over them. The page background would continue to be the same off-white that you see today, and the page text the same dark grey colour (and font, and size). The things which would change are the border, the banner and any other of the badges I created, like the award-free one to the side.
