First of all, I've been working on my blog the last few weeks to fix a problem with it not showing the text in the newest version of Firefox.  As far as I can tell, this is only happening in Firefox.  If you are having this problem, please email me and let me know so I can figure it out.  For now, I'm going to be using a different color other than the default black to solve the problem. 

I have a new template set in my shoppe:

 You can buy it here.

I'm also participating with Helen and Christy in the current quick page exchanges at goDigital.  The full size exchange goes until September 25 and feature's Christy's kit "It's a Guy Thing."  Here is a preview:


 You can buy Christy's kit here 20 % off.  I created a new template set just for this exchange and it's my Busy Boys template set #02:

 You can buy this set here 20% off for the exchange.  If you use this template set along with Christy's kit, you will get my Football Brag Book Template set for free:

I'm also participating with Helen in the brag book sized exchange featuring her new Jeans4U kit through September 30:


 You can buy Helen's kit here 40% off.  I created my new Floral Fiction Template Set #08 just for this exchange.  Here is a preview:

Find out how to get this set free here.  You can only get set #09 by participating in the exchange.  It won't be for sale after the exchange.

Thank you for free template. I'm using Firefox 3.0.1 on a Mac and I don't see any obvious text problems.

I wasn't seeing your text with the new firefox, but now I do see the postings, so whatever you changed worked. You're busy woman! :) Great exchanges... I'll spread the words about the 40% off too! :)

Sharon Kay said...

I was beginning to get worried about you since you hadn't posted in awhile. Glad to see you again!

Thank you for the free template.

I'm using firefox 3.0.1 on a pc and it looks fine here.

Thanks so much for the wonderful template! I'm using firefox 3.0.1, and your postings show up fine for me. The Post Comment link is in white, so I have to highlight the area to find it.

I was going crazy trying to find DST insider....then I learned that it was only for GOLD members. FYI for all of you out there that aren't gold members. :)

Can you edit your css on blogger?

I would look for this:
#main {
color: transparent;
margin-left: 10px;
margin-bottom: 10px;
padding: 0px 10px;
border-left: px solid #000000;

and change the 2nd line to:
color: black;

I can now read your blog, but not the comments. I use Firefox 3 under Ubuntu (linux).

I don't think this is the solution, but it could be great to choose a background color that is the same as your background paper. This way, the text is readable before the paper is downloaded.

  • Just when I think he knows better, my 10 year old son plugs the bathroom sink and the emergency drain in the sink basin to soak his grow creature, turns on the water, and forgets about it until we notice water flooding out from under the bathroom door! And yes, he locked the door so no one would bother the grow creature!!
