Meet Super Blogging’s New Theme
April 27, 2008
I understand that you all might be thinking that this blog already got a new design pretty recently, and if you are thinking that, then you’re right. The answer is that yes, Super Blogging had been using the Revolution News theme as of March 5 – until now, that is. While the entire set of Revolution themes are excellent and probably the best magazine-style themes I’ve ever seen, I have found that they’re not right for this blog. Thus, I decided on the great free theme PassionDuo.
Like I said, I completely love the Revolution themes, which is why I was so excited to use one here in the first place. It’s a very professional and organized theme. However, I found that that type of theme is best for blogs with multi-authors, or ones on multiple topics. Using that theme helped the organization and helped keep the spotlight on older content, but the blog didn’t feel like a blog to me – apart from that, it was also a lot harder to keep up with.
That doesn’t mean I would totally rule out magazine style themes for blogs in this niche, or even for my blog. I think it is very important to experiment and find what’s best for you and your site. And obviously, the demands of your readers will always be changing so sometimes that requires for a change in design or how you run things as well.
I’m not sure if using the PassionDuo theme is a permanent decision, because that all depends on what YOU think. Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think about this theme, and if it’s right for Super Blogging. Also, if you have any other recommendations, don’t hesitate to send them to me – I’m all ears to your suggestions and I’m open to any other theme choices you might know of!
One big question though: is this theme better than the previous one? Let me know what you think about that as well.
