Title: Colors: The "How to choose colors" question
Hopefully the title of this thread has pretty much explained to you what my question is.
How do I choose specific colors for my website?
As of right now, I only know that I would like subtle blues, and subtle yellows on the site. The site has a white background, and the content text will be black. As of now that's all I know. If anyone can help me out, it would be much appreciated. Either tell me how you go about choosing colors, or point me in the direction of a useful resource
Thanks a lot!

I go through a few steps when choosing a color. First I reread this excellent color theory guide, then I make a logo or site in several different colors. I'm talking about maybe 6 or 7--green, orange, red, yellow, blue, cyan, purple, etc., and then I get other people to tell me which they like best from a distance AND which one they like best when they look at it close up.
