Day x-2: Ubgrading!! (This spelling is a choice!)

After some difficult with the default blog setup, a theme has been chosen. I’ve recently been informed that blogs with images and infographics get more traffic. This seems fairly obvious but apparently not to me.

!! Can I start a paragraph with two bangs!? I’d like you to know that I’m shocked even before getting to the first letter of the paragraph. Why am I shocked? There are a lot of themes and I’m fairly certain that the one I pick will have an effect on how you view the site, and how I manage the site. Seems like kind of a big deal.

How many blog themes are there? At least 217. Who has time to evaluate them all? Not me, so I’m going to do what I can and pick one to try. Then, I’ll probably try another, and another and see how they work or see how long it takes them to drive me crazy enough to switch.

I can’t tell you how long I’ve been looking at all these themes but I have started to notice that there are a lot of features and I’ve found that I’m able to search by theme features. It’s starting to make a bit of sense now even if I don’t quite know what features I want or need.

My thoughts are that I’d like a calendar on the blog because I’m aiming to create content daily. I’d also like somewhere to put some ads. Remember, part of the blog plan is to generate some ad revenue. If I’m going to do that then I’m going to need somewhere to put the ads. It turns out that one of the features that you can search for is WordAds which allows more space for ads. We’ll explore that later. Another feature is custom-header. I like the idea of being able to make my own header. A lot of these themes have a lot of slick formats too but I’m slightly concerned that I’ll need to spend too much time messing with the formats to get stuff the way I want it too look so I’m searching for something midway between a simple list and complex frames.

If this was video, this is where the montage would go. We’re gonna need a montage!

I finally made a selection. I went with one called Arcane but I I may look into one called Opti in the future.

New Features! I think. I don’t really know if I was able to do things with the last theme but even though there’s some frustration because…I don’t know what the hell I’m doing. Not anybody’s fault but my own; not to worry though I’ll play with it enough to get it working. It’ll just take some time.

Alright, feeling good about making this blog look better for you, hopefully it’ll encourage more people to visit and stick around.

Oh, and I just remembered something. I was once talking to a friend and I said, “I think we’re gonna need an infographic.” To which she replied, “I know what nympho means but…” Classic.
