• I agree with you but I would add that the blog owner also has to really enjoy the theme as well. The owner will be staring at the thing more than most so he/she had better like it.

    Well if owner likes his theme but it is unreadable crap – he can enjoy it all he wants… In dark, cold and lonely corner of Internet. :)

  • A WordPress theme might also affect one’s mode to write. When I changed to a theme with smaller typography, I felt more encouraged to write more short posts – thus keeping my blog more frequently updated.

    However, when it comes to the appearance – author and (end-)users tends to disagree. A template that we call minimalistic and clean, might be regarded as plain and boring by them. Take Minima in Blogspot template for example.

    I’m still working on a template that will satisfy both. That, if can get my CSS skill more polished =)

    Sometimes it is hard to show restrain and keep your vision over what people tell you about blog looks. I had been numerously told that my blog looks boring.

    I am aware of that interpretation but that doesn’t mean I have to act on it just to please people who prefer more lively designs. And sacrifice my own ideas of how my blog should look like.
