Why That? Why That Particular Theme?
My Blog’s background theme is Baskerville 2 – l like the layout and the broadness of the panels and l like the impression that it awards the reader upon first glancing upon it. I have chosen bright colours in display support as l like bright colours and yellow and black for me is nice and eyecatching and l think it makes the blog more attractive and hopefully more appealing to outside/external visitors.
I don’t use the Reader and by now, you should know how much l detest the Reader because it dehumanises our blogs and confuses me in some respects … many of us pay for our blogs … and WordPress encourages bloggers to use the Reader which then takes away all the ‘attractiveness’ of a blog because fundamentally it’s there for internal users of WP as opposed to visitors not using a WP blog?
So if most users only use the Reader what’s the point to them paying for a nice attractive blog with a Theme when the Reader strips out all the format and just rolls data like a cattle feeder? That’s not the question by the way, that’s just me trying to understand it … yes, yes, l know convenience, hyper efficiency … BUT that leads me to a specific question which is ….
What Theme is your blog using and why did you opt for that one over something else … what were your motives towards selection?
