Decided to do a little theme switch. This one’s from the WordPress Theme Competition. (I’m not more specific because I’ve changed my mind which one to go with like twice since I first wrote this post.)

I was so, so, so tempted to go with Taft. (Shut your mouth! I’m just talkin’ bout Taft.) But I understand the images required by the CSS are like a half a meg download, and it only looks right if you happen to have the right fonts installed (I do). So I’m gonna back off on that one. (Oh, I’m also digging Museum but I’m not sure what tolerance my readers have for marble buttocks.)

I’d like to come up with my own someday but I don’t know if I want to wade into CSS that deeply. There’s a lot of structure to a WordPress page and it seems like it’d be a big headache to get it all looking nice.

  1. That headache is precisely why I’ve stayed away from using it embedded in an existing site. Making it look like the rest of my site would be SUCH a headache.

  2. Hey,

    Thanks for your vote of confidence in Taft. I’m working on updating it making it more image, font, CSS, and validation friendly. Keep your finger on the pulse, one of these days I’m going to get to it.
