After my last post ‘Case study‘, I nearly packed up altogether since for while there all my blogs were blocked by the IWF (along with thousands of other WordPress.com/TalkTalk users). It’s taken a while to get back in the groove but cue the lights and along comes a feeling of cheer and the fairytale feeling that wishes can come true.Now I’m not really one for window shopping or trying on clothes for the sake of it but when it comes to WordPress themes I’m a bit of a junkie. As soon as the new theme post pops into the inbox, I dash off into the dashboard and try it on.
Many times I’ve looked at the possibility of premium themes and/or custom design where I can modify fonts, colors etc to my heart’s content. The problem is how to justify the annual expense when the blog itself does not earn its keep. Ads are not the answer as my adage is ‘I’m a person not a purse’. Even so, free themes come with ads aimed at the visitor which makes me feel a little guilty.
No blog theme is a one-size-fit-all and for this my more wordy blog I’ve been very happy for a while with the magazine style ‘Expound’ but for a short seasonal change I’m getting into the ‘Spirit‘ of the season – and I hope this does not make me sound like a freeloader – but Dear Santa if you want to pop a premium theme into my stocking here are some I particularly like the look of:-
I’d love to hear from anyone with theme preferences, and those who have bought into flexibility and premiums choice. Meanwhile I hope the magic of Christmas is growing on you.
