Old WordPress Theme – 2016.06


Last month, I switched to a new WordPress theme. Today, I switched back to my previous theme. The new theme simply wasn’t working for me, but I’m glad I tried something different. Also, one of my New Year’s resolutions was to develop a new theme and stick with it for an entire year, at least. I’ve not started on that resolution yet (apart from giving it some thought and making a few quick notes), but I’m thinking the new theme will be more closely related to this one, so I figured I switch back to it.

Anyhow, I’m pretty excited to get started on the new theme (it that sad?) and hope to make a start on it soon.

New WordPress Theme – 2016.11

My new WordPress theme.

My new 2016.11 WordPress theme.

About a month ago, I decided I’d make another attempt at redesigning my WordPress theme. I really liked my previous theme, but I was concerned that its stark minimalism was a little too restrictive. So, I thought I’d try to come up with a design that would give me more options for including different types of content.

I activated the theme yesterday, and this post really only exists to mark the date, but if you’d like to take a look at the theme, it can be found here.

Since WordPress now powers a quarter of the internet, it is obvious that there is no dearth of awesome free themes for WordPress users. There were several amazing themes released for blogging, magazine, portfolio sites, and more. Plus, we also got a new default theme: Twenty Sixteen.

Because there are so many to choose from, I found some of the best themes of 2015. These are all free and guaranteed to make your site look beautiful.

A nice collection of WordPress themes from 2015. I’m not sure if I’ll ever use any of them, but I like browsing through these lists for inspiration.
