OK I get it now!
Someone told me that the font colors I have been using are really hard to read... and I was confused because in order for them to show on a black background, I have to use light colors. Anyway, as a test I subscribed to my own blog on bloglines, and sure enough, it transfers over my font colors!
I am going to work on finding a way that my text shows on both black and white backgrounds! Sorry for all the eyestrain!
