SECRET BEHIND MY BLOG'S BLACK THEME
Now coming to the revelation of my black ideology, I'm a person who likes black color, though I'm not really sure when my La Affair flourished with it but I have always liked whatever black stuff I owned, such as my black point pen, my black t-shirt, my shoes, my black tie, my black blazer and etc etc. So, it was quite obvious that my web-page would look no different than my black t-shirt :).
The second most important reason why I fell for the black background was the comfort of reading, which I enjoyed with the white text on the black background. Moreover, I have my very own philosophy, which also gives me a strong reason to persist with the black background with white texts. The philosophy is- "In the dark world I want to spread the light using my bright white colored words". I'm a passionate writer, and I believe when I write my intent is very pure. The color white is a symbol of peace and purity, deriving the same are my words in my texts. The white text color represents my pure intent and the peace I pursue by following my passion for writing.
The third reason is a technically driven outcome, which I realize is very useful. A technical study has shown that an all white web page uses about 74 watts to display, while an all black page uses only 59 watts. Of course, the study results are more effective on CRT monitors than on TFT or LCD monitors, but taking into account that 35% of the market share is still with the normal CRT monitors it is still an important factor to be considered. So, I have done my best by using the black background in an effort to save whatever little power I could save.
So, those were the reasons why I have an all black theme on my blog. Hopefully, it might have made some sense but if you still have some suggestions regarding it then you are most welcome.
