You may have noticed that I’ve been tinkering with the look of my blog recently; I like to switch things up, and one of the reasons I love WordPress so much is their vast collection of free and customizable themes. Official blogging wisdom says your blog should have a consistent “brand” or “image,” preferably connected to your title/niche/etc, but my approach is much more about colors I like and the general “feel” I like the space to have: fresh, calming, welcoming.
I’m really pleased with the one I’ve chosen now–lovely colors, clean look, and the ability to change the header image whenever I choose. The photo I’ve chosen now is one I took last year on a family trip to Longwood Gardens; I had never been before, and now I can’t wait to go back this year! I like the colors here, but also the play of light and shadow, and the sense of texture it has, considering the woven texture of the background as well.
What do you think?
