Blame it on the recently wrapped-up redesign of the AAJA-LA site, but I want to redesign this site again. I know, I know — I just redesigned the site in December, after shifting to WordPress in August. In my defense, I had to redesign in December because I broke my theme, but whatever.
Anyway, I’ve been shopping around for a new theme, in preparation for when I upgrade to WordPress 2.5. My upgrading really has nothing to do with you, but upgrading is sort of my excuse for a new theme.
Anyway, I’ve been looking around, trying to find themes with “good bones.” What do I want? Let’s see, I now want to go back to a fixed template (meaning everything stays the same size in whatever size browser you’re viewing it in), three columns (but I seem to be waffling on that…), with serif fonts and good blockquotes. Is that weird, that I want good blockquotes? Anyway, I also want the categories to show up as summaries, not just headlines, the way my theme does now. Oh and its important that the post space is wider than 500 pixels, since I like to make my biggest photos 500 pixels.
You can check out some of the themes I’ve found that sort of fit the bill one way or another via my WordPress tags on Del.icio.us. I really like Imagination, but I also like Refueled’s Simple Themes. But I think if life were perfect, I’d use Shazia Mistry’s Sakeena. But I don’t think Sakeena is available for download yet.
The other thing I was wondering…Trin was saying I needed to come up with a design I liked so I could stop redesigning. Hehehe, I don’t think I’ll ever stop redesigning, but he does have a point. Is there a picture or thing that you think of when it comes to my site? My site is so all over the place that I can’t think of just one thing.
Anyway, if you think of anything let me know.
