Check out my new theme

As you can see, I’ve rolled out a new theme to this website. It’s an awesome theme called Freshtweet which incorporates a number of Twitter-ish ideas. Here are some of the great features:

  • Change color styles with a single click
  • Choose a featured category via the theme options area
  • Integrate Feedburner and Email link subscriptions
  • Integrate TweetRoll widget with one click
  • Simple and clean design
  • jQuery sidebar
  • Supports threaded comments
  • Drop down categories at a glance
  • Prominent search area
  • Easily integrate “Recent Comments With Avatars” plugin
  • Compatible with WordPress 2.8+
  • Easy access to admin area for logged in users
  • Optimized for search engine traffic

I find WordPress an excellent platform for blogging, as you can change the look and feel of your blog anytime you wish, without losing any of your content. And I use it for non-blogs too. It doesn’t matter if you’re a professional Orange County web design firm or just a sole developer building websites in his free time (i.e. me), but it’s always a great asset having a platform you can build on easily.

What do you think of it? What would you change?

  1. I like it, except.. well, this is going to sound persnickety…
    I think the area in the upper right (where the browse button is) would look better if it were moved over a bit and lined up with the top of the far right column.

    Overall, I think you did a great job, it offers the visitor a lot of information without giving the feeling that the blog is cluttered and overfilled.
