Blogging 101: Love Your Theme

Since I became a member of the WordPress community of bloggers in June 2014, I’ve enjoyed experimenting with a variety of themes.  A few that have graced the contours of my blog over time have included: Sorbet, Fictive and some that apparently are no longer available.  Or rather, I should say, I don’t recognize any other themes that I’ve played with among the vast number of themes that are currently available, either gratis or for purchase.

A few months back I bought the Promenade theme, and after playing around a bit with the background colors, I finally landed on the current warm, coral tone to which I’m so often drawn. While I may continue to tweak things, I’m happy with the results.

Until now. Until this assignment! There are so many other interesting, quirky, wonderful themes – more than I remember. So many more to choose from. Sigh. For now, though, I’ll stay with what I have. Perhaps sometime later, after I feel I’ve gotten my money’s worth, I’ll switch to another theme.

It’s kind of like decorating your home. It’s where you live, where you spend much of your time. It makes sense – to me anyway – to feel comfy and warm and to feel, well, at home when you’re working on (and playing with!) your blog.

So.  Have fun with it.  Start decorating!

  1. Good point! Decorating your blog does feel like you’re decorating your home. It’s extremely personal in both cases.

  2. Oh gosh, don’t tempt me. If I fall down the rabbit hole of fooling around with my blog theme, my productivity level will sink even lower than it already has! Although I have to say I really like the look of yours…..
