I have a logo at the top of my blog … it looks great on a white background! In dark mode, however, it looks really bad.
I turned to our old friend, CSS, to get me through this problem. First, I created and uploaded two versions of my logo: a light mode version and a dark mode version.
Now all I had to do was add the Custom CSS to overwrite the light mode logo hard coded into the HTML in the theme files with the dark mode logo.

CSS I added to the Hello theme, by Ricky de Laveaga.
CSS I added to the Hello theme, the only dark theme in the micro.blog theme gallery. It even has a light/dark switcher!
I really like the [Marfa] theme but wanted to give it a small personal touch by changing the default color for links.
There’s a small downside to having a podcast running on your main Micro.blog subscription. If you submit your podcast to Apple Podcasts (or anywhere else), Micro.blog by default defines your podcast title and artwork based on your blog. So your blog title is the podcast title, and your podcast artwork is your Micro.blog photo.
Manton plans to add the ability for everyone to change the podcast title and artwork in the Micro.blog dashboard at some point in the future. Until that feature is available, you can make the changes yourself if you’re using a custom theme.
