@simonwoods Nice! I like the way you've outlined everything on the feeds page too.

@mikedotfm Thanks! Being late to the web/tech environment often feeds into a certain type of insecurity so getting this stuff done feels that much better.

@eli Thanks, Eli. I like to think we're all making it easier for each other to get the work done.

@manton Thanks, Manton. I remember feeds being one of the prominent subjects of conversation when I started on MB and I'm convinced that everybody who cares about them can contribute, even in small ways, to making them friendlier for non-tech people to get into.

@jmreekes Thanks, Jimmy! I'm glad you think so; I try to not spend too much time on making decisions about the appearance since it's difficult to know what's good and also very easy to change everything.

@simonwoods I also really like the feeds page. I like how you explain what feeds are and suggest rss readers. I hope you donโ€™t mind if I copy some of that for my own blog - too many of my friends donโ€™t know about feed readers.

@simonwoods I donโ€™t typically like dark themes, but yours is great. The whole site looks good. ๐Ÿ‘

@smokey Thanks, Smokey! I was iffy about moving to dark but always wanted to try it for my own site having used it on a previous project.

@simonwoods I agree with @smokey. It's the first dark theme I can remember with colors that are really easy to read. Even easier to read than the white background in my Timeline. I added your mumbles feed to my growing list of Micro.blog feeds in Feedly. Keep up the good work.

@simonwoods I agree with @mikefm, very nice dark template. I ran into a bug that you might be interested, the post-title on single-posts is only marginally lighter than the background. Thought you'd like to know.

@svenseebeck Thanks, Sven! All squished now. I'm sure I'll keep finding them. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

@simonwoods I feel you. i keep running into issues all the time. Fix them, probably create one or two new issues in the process and eventually switch themes and start all over with this again.
