Coming back to WordPress.com, I wanted to apply a fresh, new theme to my blog. If for nothing else, so to ‘mark the event’ 🙂 .
At this point in time, there are 337 themes to choose from. Out of those, 183 are free, the other ones are premium. When you look at this line-up of fancy themes, it’s easy to become drawn to the ones with spectacular photos, so I have to stay focused on what it is I really want. For one, I have to like the main font, as I don’t have the paid upgrade. Fonts have always important to me, and I think even more so nowadays, with all the mobile devices. Got to be ‘readable’! 🙂
So, yesterday I was looking through the newest, free themes. All the older ones, I know pretty well — I check them out as they’re being released. Over the years, I’ve found the themes made by Automattic [=WordPress], are the best in the long run … most stable. Mind you … that’s only ME, and it’s just a feeling I have.
Right away, I fell for a brand new one, called Scrawl. I loved that theme! But wouldn’t you know … turns out that one of my friends couldn’t comment! From what I understand, in her view, the sidebar is constantly displayed, covering the whole comments section.
With stuff like that, I get like a terrier with a rag … I have to figure it out! I pored over this all afternoon, yesterday — we wrote back and forth, she and I, I tested it on the other computer with Windows on it … there just wasn’t any way I could reproduce the problem. Eventually I gave up and applied the default theme Twenty Fifteen, which is nice too.
On a different note; just for fun I’ll post these three photos of our snow levels right now! In a week or two, I’ll take the same pictures again, to see how far they’ve gone down. After all … yesterday was First of Spring! Ha ha!
