The New Theme, Version 1

In which our author explains the reason for the change and documents the old theme.

I was looking around recently at the WordPress annual themes and was looking into Twenty Sixteen. While it hadn’t spoken to me when it was released, it did have some features that seemed perfect for me now. The first is that images are given even more room to breathe in this theme. Since I’ve featured photography quite a bit on my blog over the past 11 years, this was something I definitely wanted. I have toyed with the idea of having a separate blog for my photography that has a dedicated photography theme, but since my tastes are always shifting, I think it’s better to just keep it all together on one blog. Another feature is the addition of pull-quotes – something I was trying to figure out how to do via plugins. Finally there is the sub-title you see above – I love those. I plan to have some fun with it in the future.

I’m not in love with my header images (I have five of them randomized – each representing one of the things I like to talk about). It’s currently based on the one I had on Twenty Thirteen. I will toy around with some new ideas over the next few weeks.

It’s been almost exactly a year since I last changed themes!

A reminder that until the cache clears, you may see the old theme for a few days. I’ve also decided to remove the ads from the side to give more space to the content. Also, in the past 10ish years I’ve earned a whole $130 from the ads. It’s not really worth it to me.

Well, here’s the newly abandoned old theme, for posterity:
