There were a few other WordPress themes in consideration when I swapped out my livery the other day. Instead of keeping them all to myself — especially since I’ll probably change things here again in a few months — I thought I’d share a few of the other ones that I liked.
You might notice that they’re all strongly opinionated. Opinions are something that I really appreciate in a theme. I’d rather have my site look like something than just blend in, you know?
This lowkey reminds me of a Campbell’s Soup can and I am into it. I also love that it throws the featured image out the window.
Featured images are something that I just came around on. At least for this site. So not doing them anymore seems like a mistake.
Another absolute banger from Anders Noren. I’ve been a total sucker for a tall serif lately, so the font face he’s picked for the title really appeals to me.
This one is more magazine than blog — which is why I ended up passing it by — but do I like the boldness of it quite a bit.
I came very close to going with this one! I might not have kept it pink. But, then again, I might’ve…
Still, I love the post title layout on the homepage and how it plays off the image. It’s all very bold, yet understated at the same time.
I think some people will see the mommy blog example and nope out of this. If that’s you tho, you’re robbing yourself of playing around something truly interesting.
