Make it Yours

 

The theme I chose has a light mood, is fun and colorful and I think these are good representations of who I am. The header has an image of a building which represented to me city life; it has elements of nature such as trees and clouds; and it still looks as though it is a notepad or scrapbook of some sort. I grew up in Vegas so I am most definitely a city girl, however I appreciate nature and all of its bounties. As previously mentioned, I was an English major so I do have somewhat of a creative side.

I think there is a fair amount of white space: not too much, not too little but I think it will only look better the more content I add to it. The colors of the theme are inviting and I think visitors will feel welcome because of them. As far as columns go, so far there is only one (a side bar), however I would like to add another one, perhaps on the left side, I just haven’t quite figured out how to do so yet. The website vandelaydesign.com contains an article titled “25 Examples of ┬áThree-Column Blog Designs,” which I discovered is exactly what I am drawn to. It may be because everything is neatly organized and easily accessible, with the main part of the page in the middle.

What I like most about the theme I chose is the text and the design of it. Each heading is appropriately sized and colored to grab the attention of readers. For example: the Recent Posts and Recent Comments headings (and subsequent ones) are larger than the text in the body and lime green to emphasize importance. The headings of titles of blog posts are black as is the text below it, and I feel that this flows well together.

As far as I know, the only thing available for edit with my chosen theme is widgets and menus, but I could be wrong. I hope that I am able to change things such as the banner, columns, color and add images, because although I am happy with my theme right now I do tend to get tired of one design fairly quickly. thecutestblogontheblock.com has some really cute banners that I would love to play around with, so hopefully I can figure out how to do it soon.
