It’s all about fonts

Typographic clarity comes in two flavors: legibility and readability. What’s the difference? Legibility is a function of typeface design. It’s an informal measure of how easy it is to distinguish one letter from another in a particular typeface. Readability, on the other hand, is dependent upon how the typeface is used. Readability is about typography. It is a gauge of how easily words, phrases, and blocks of copy can be read. (by Allan Haley)

First off I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick
question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t
mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.
I have had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out.
I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost simply just trying to
figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Kudos!

Legibility is the ease with which a user can not only read the text but also understand it. In my experience as a designer, I saw it as the most overlooked part of user experience.

Hello, I think your website might be having
browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog in Firefox, it looks fine but when opening in Internet
Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give
you a quick heads up! Other then that, awesome
blog!

Hi! Thank you for the heads up. Do you know that less than 10% of desktop and laptop web traffic comes from Internet Explorer? It makes up less than 3% of all web traffic across all devices on my website.
Not many users are coming to my website from IE, sorry for the inconvenience I highly recommend to use other browser IE is slow and has terrible security! Cheers!
