I noticed on Coté’s blog a few week’s ago that he was using a very big font size.  At first I thought it looked goofy, but after I while I thought to myself “damn if this isn’t easy to read!”  I played follow-the-leader and changed the default font size setting of my WordPress blog from the default 75% (normal letters approximately 10px high) to 120% (normal letters approximately 22px high).  Since then, I’ve gotten a number of compliments from friends and family who can now read the blog easier (and aren’t familiar with the browsers’ font scaling controls).

So unless you’ve got a really good reason to keep your font tiny, why not follow Coté’s lead and make your blog’s font real big?
