I think that another mistake that beginners make it making their text too small. In your siggy, there are several things you could do for your text. #1 - All of it could be bigger, you have lots of blank space so make the text as big as possible. #2 - your drop shadows are too far away from the text which makes it very hard to read. A distance of 5 px. is about the max you should have and that is for very large text. The size you have should be 1 or 2 px. and the shadow is too dark, set opacity at about 50% and lighten the color. #3 - a white stroke paired with the drop shadow helps the text stand out.
