Making the links obvious

Today I showed my Dad the front page of the blog and he barely noticed the links.

At one point he even asked me why some of the text was blue.

I guess this just shows that Jakob Nielsen is right — fewer people notice links if the links are not blue and underlined.

So since one of the major points of this blog is to explore the use of links, tonight I changed the wordpress theme to make my links underlined, though it may detract a bit from the minimalism of the theme.
