I liked the blue background better.

The color contrast might be a bit too low...

I hope it's just for Halloween - black background with light text is just a bit tough on the eyes.

I am having a hard time reading parts of this.

hmmm..... glad I asked. on my computer, it's a dark green background with light blue links and yellow headings. I made the change as a complicated answer to some comment spam problems I'd been having, taking it as an opportunity to change other stuff. which parts, specifically, are hard to read? (links, visited links, hover, post titles, all text, etc.) also, why would it appear black on some people's computers & green on mine?

It's green on mine. But it is quite dark-like black. I like the butterfly.

The text is harder to read. Is the text size smaller or does it just appear smaller?

it is smaller.... basically I used a template from blogger and then changed the background color and some of the other colors in an attempt to make it look like the color of my chalkboard. the new font size came from the new template. I guess I could make that a bit bigger. I don't want to play around with the colors for a day or so until I get some advice/feedback on exactly why it is hard to read and which colors are giving people trouble. it is very readable on my (mac) screen. I used hex codes.

Help. I have no aesthetic sense whatsoever.

Is the size better now?

Size is ok, but the background appears as black on my screen, and it is hard to read the blue lettering against it.

I see a rich green background. The writing is not hard to read, but a bit larger might be better. The light blue links make a nice offset from the white. Love the butterfly against the green.

I have GOT to learn to do this stuff.

The background is dark green on my monitor but it's still hard to read the text, even with the bump in size.

The text size is much improved. However the blue link against the green does not stand out.

You may want to try other bright colors for the links because the yellow in your titles stand out beautifully.

The comment section is also a link and it is a totally different color than the other links.

I am green with envy--it looks great!

Maybe we could call this template, "Progressive Green." Hmmm... It does have a certain cachet.

Instead of CCC, maybe a DDD or EEE -colored font would improve the contrast.

On my monitor it's not too bad though.

It's hard on the eyes...but maybe that's because my eyes are 56 years old!

I like it. I've been thinking about changing my own template, so this is interesting to watch. I like the typeface too.
