Oooh… It’s So Pretty…

Published June 4, 2009 - 1 Comment

I’ve had a few comments about how “pretty” the blog’s new look is. I’ll admit that it is definitely more visually appealing now, but I feel a little guilty taking any credit for the new and improved look. For people who don’t already know, one of the great things about WordPress is the seemingly endless number of free themes available. I’m sure that Blogger has themes too, but I didn’t have much luck with that platform. Once I finally figured out how to get WordPress installed properly finding themes was easy. Installing them was even easier. I downloaded a few and dropped them in the hosting directory. Now I can switch between different themes with a single click, and what you see today may not necessarily be what you see tomorrow. But for now, I like the way that it looks.

Anyone who knows me well realizes that my creative talents do not extend to graphic artistry. My infamous stick-man drawings are about as good as it gets. WordPress themes are a godsend for someone with my limited abilities (and even more limited patience).

This is a work in progress, and as always, I look forward to hearing from people who are much more familiar with this than I am. If you know of some fantastic new theme, widget, or website… please leave me a comment. Maybe we can all learn something here.

Thanks for reading!
