The Bishop's Blog

I have just had a email from Bishop Michael Campbell's secretary to tell me about The Bishop's Blog. He is I think the first English bishop to blog.
Well done to the Bishop of Lancaster.

"Wot, no Comments?"

Is it really a Blog without the opportunity to make observations?

"THE BACKGROUND COLOUR FOR THIS BLOG> One reader finds it difficult to read and wants me to change the background. Two problems, first I do not know how to do this and secondly I cant see where the problem is. I use a light green background and Verdana print in a fairly large format. I find it easier to read than most blogs...but I would say that. Anyway, what format might be better and how do you achieve it" ?

Lots of "silver surfers" are conservative Catholics and read these blogs with difficulty if the font/colour/layout is challenging.

I'm sure there is an explanation for the problem with green. Macular Degeneration alters colour perception. An opthamologist would explain.
