For a while now I’ve been pondering a new look for ABW. While I mostly like the current theme, it has a few drawbacks. The problem is that WP.com doesn’t have many themes to choose from and, of the ones I like, each has one big thing wrong with it that serves as dealbreaker. This wouldn’t be too much of a problem if I could customize the CSS, but in order to do so here I’d have to pay, which I wish to avoid.
Anyway, I’ve picked out some styles to try but I’d love to get feedback from readers on how they feel. Stuff like is the text too small or the reading area too narrow or does the whole thing just feel too crowded, etc. Starting later today and switching up every two or three days, I’ll change the theme and put up a post where anyone can comment on it. No matter if you’re a longtime visitor or someone who just discovered the blog, I’d love feedback from everyone.
Also, if you’re a WP.com user and truly love your theme, pimp it here and tell me why. I’ll add it to my list of ones to try (if it isn’t there already).
While this is going on there will still be regular posts and one of the widgets on the sidebar(s) will always be a list of recent comments so you can keep up with ongoing conversations.
