    I don't know about anyone else, but I find the red on black really hard to read. White on black is OK, but red on black makes my eyes hurt.

    I tried a few different colors for a background but i didnt like em so i stuck with a black background and changed the text to a more brownish red color, something a little softer in tone, what do you think?

    I think that made it a bit worse as it is darker and hard to read against the dark background. How about #FB4737? It's still red but a few shades lighter than your current color.

    I like it, it does look alot better and is easier to read.
    Do you think i should keep my blog at blogspot or go with my own website and domain name?

    I haven't dealt with blogspot but I've been looking at Wordpress.com for a free blog. I'd probably go with the free option there (yourname.wordpress.com) to begin with. The free option does cut down on your options as far as things like theming, however. But I see it as a good starting point since you don't have to spend any money to find out if you are going to stay with blogging or if it is just going to be a passing fad.

    I have used Blogspot, and like it a little bit. It's not too hard to figure out after playing around with it. I do believe that you can simply get a domain name and use that. If I'm not mistaken, it will simply be a sort of redirection to your blogspot domain (don't quote me on this as I haven't really been in the whole website mix for a while).

    About your site, I am guessing you used the recomendation from LAJ_FETT. If so, I think it was a good choice because it's definitely not bad on the eyes. One thing though, the text on the banner is a tad hard to read around the symbol.
