Many people go under the knife to take years off of their face. Nips and tucks are made, injections are administered and when the bandages come off and the bruising goes down, years have been taken off of their looks and they appear to have gone back in time.
That’s kind of what has happened with my theme.
As mentioned in the “Inquiring Minds Want To Know” post, when I started blogging, the birth of this blog’s name first appeared in written form, in my notebook.
Over the past three years, I’ve tried to replicate that “feeling” with a theme for this blog, however no theme I found suited me, so I stuck with a more generic look.
When I recently spotted this theme, I knew this was “it”.
Hence, the process began, and after weeks of tweaking, it’s time to unveil my new look.
Although many bloggers use premium themes, I’ve stuck with free ones I find online. Granted, links are often required to be left in the footer, but for the work the theme author has put into creating these works of art, I feel it’s a small price for their contribution to blogosphere.
As I was working behind the scenes on my new look, I wondered why bloggers choose the themes they do.
So, now it’s your turn,
Why did you choose the theme you use for your blog?
Is it a free theme? Or did you buy it?
Either way, did you also customize it to fit your needs?
P.S. I still have a few more tweaks to make to this theme, however in the meantime, if you find any links that aren’t working or spot other problems, please let me know.
