coffee, classics, and craziness has a new look!

My blog’s previous theme has been around for about three years and tonight I decided that it was time for a fresh look.  After some browsing through WordPress’ themes and tinkering with a few options, this is what I landed on.  I think it’s a cleaner, simpler look than the old theme and I like it. (I don’t love it but I like it better than my previous theme.) (WordPress doesn’t have a lot of variety with its free themes, though.)

So…what do you think?  Let me know in the comments!

  1. It’s definitely very simple, which is not at all a bad thing! But the background color does feel just a tad dark and the contrast with the white text boxes is harsher–but may just be my eyes 🙂

    I second Maribeth on the colors and contrast, I also prefer a wider column (where the posts are?), that’s just my personal preference, but I do think it would make posts easier to read.
    I think you can edit free themes, right? I have wordpress, but not the free wordpress, the self-hosted, so I’m not sure of the difference (also, not sure of much on mine, plenty I want to change there). But when I was on blogger you could change the free themes


    1. I can edit free themes, but not a ton. Like I said, I don’t LOVE this one and it seems to be getting quite a bit of negative feedback, so I think I’m going to switch to something else.


  3. I miss sidebars. I love sidebars. I love getting to see people’s tags and past posts — in fact, I’ve gotten to where I almost never follow a blog without being able to find those, because I want to get a fast feel for what they talk a lot about.

    But I like the peacock blue color, and the contrast doesn’t bother me.


    1. Sidebars are probably why I don’t love this theme. 😦 Some of the sidebar stuff is in the footer, but you have to click a separate button to bring it up. I’m not totally happy with this theme…I’m probably going to change it, based on everyone’s feedback. 🙂


  4. the previous template have a touch of fun but this dark blue background makes me gloomy and I don’t know, it just seems too serious maybe, I think you do write some fun posts… although I am a fan of one column templates.

    have a lovely day.
