I want a new blog layout. The theme I currently use is “Oulipo” and I like it, but I want something new. I sat on WordPress for a good hour, clicking the “activate” button and then immediately undoing it.
I’d like to have a dedicated title area, something a little bold, but also very clean and easy to read. I want my tagline “I’m just talking to myself…” to be displayed near the title of my page because I like it and I think it’s clever. I don’t want a big chunky header or a picture. I want the text in the sidebar to actually be readable. I don’t want a lot of color, but maybe a dash as an accent. I don’t want clutter, not lots of stuff by the title of the post, but I do want a date to be displayed. I do want the links I embed in my posts to stand out, i.e. be a different color than the text and not simply underlined.
Maybe I really am getting old and set in my ways. But really, is a nice, simple, elegant, clean theme too much to ask for?
