It’s late and I’ve spent the last few hours changing, tweaking, searching and previewing a plethora of WordPress themes. I won’t go into the list but I was looking for something that looked clean, and easy to read on mobile and desktop displays.
I wanted a theme that allowed me to use a featured-post image alongside excerpts on my home page and that didn’t repeat the featured image when a visitor clicked and went to read the post.
This was not something I found. I then spent the better half of an hour looking for a way to edit the code on the theme inside WordPress. Didn’t like the result, so I went looking again. So now it’s very late, my eyes hurt, (I’d turned off f.lux to check the colour scheme, app worth trying if you spend a lot of time in front of your screen) and I’m wrecked.
So quick fix? Choose one that looks okay, activate and save and get busy at what I am interested in doing. Writing. The themes will come and go, the look, the trend, but your posts will stay. Write them to outlast your themes.
