Blogging 101 : Love Your Theme

Yay! Final day of class before weekly break at Blogging U!

Today’s assignment is : Try out at least three other themes — even if you’re happy with the one you first chose. Try one you’re drawn to, and one you would never use.

WP has a huge repository of beautiful free themes, when I first started off it’s so much fun to try on various themes and dress up my blog.

After several tries I landed on Hemingway Rewritten. The bright banner and clean background are features that appeal to me most.

Just a little downside I discovered, with the white palette I’ve selected, for hyperlinks and the calendar, the colour for the links vs. non-linked fonts are pretty indiscernible. You have to have really sharp eyesight to differentiate the colours.

Few days ago I’ve also optimized my blog and trimmed the extra widgets which may weigh down browsing traffic for some readers.

Oh besides I’m going to try something new today — adding polls!

If you’re reading this, I would love to know your thoughts on my current theme.

Thanks for voting! Every vote counts 😉
