I had really planned on sticking with the OceanBech 1.0 theme for at least 6 months before moving on, but as much as I liked the look, it was definitely a very 1.0 theme. I had to do a lot of hacking around in the CSS to get it to look “just right” and even still there were some things I was less than pleased with.
I really didn’t want to be “that blogger” who changes the theme of his blog as the mood suits him, but I was really getting frustrated with what I felt were some limitations of my previous theme. I’ve spent some time the last few days really perusing the themes that met my very basic requirements: three columns and widget-ready. After much reading and reviewing, I’ve settled on “Subtle” (a.k.a. Glued Ideas). I like the look and feel very much and there is an active development and support community at http://www.gluedideas.com/.
As always, expect some minor tweaking in the days/weeks ahead. I won’t have time to mess with this stuff once school/grad school starts in a few more weeks.
