…changing/removing the word origin in the bottom right of my images, above the URL. Thank you, and I appreciate them (really!), but I’ve decided to keep it as it is. Here’s my reasoning/rebuttals:
“Change the font it’s in because it’s weird/small/ugly”
I actually have a special place in my heart for that font because it’s readable even as small as five pixels high. A normal font would be a blurry mess; a normal font at a bigger size would be just as weird. Utility wins over beauty on this one. I will experiment with another font, just for you guys, but don’t bank on the weird small font changing.
“Make it grey instead of black”
Black text on white background: that’s what I’ve always done with this blog, and I think that’s what I’ll always do. I’m not sure, but I think a bit of random grey text in the corner would be even stranger. Anything different draws the eye, so it’d likely add distraction, not minimize it.
Of course, it’d be prettiest if I could just not do the origin at all, but I can’t do that, so this is kind of what we’ve got. I’m sorry, everyone. :c Just focus on the biggest words and try to ignore the corner stuff if it bothers you?
