Whether you’re a seasoned blogger or a newbie just starting to dip their toes into the water, a WordPress theme that matches with your own personal taste and style is always key. I’ve found, in my time blogging, that the aesthetic of my blog needs to consistently inspire me. When I visit the homepage, does it set off creative sparks or does it have me craving a change? If I can visit an old post and be charmed by the smallest details in the sidebar or the simplicity of my logo, then I know the blog theme is one I’m happy with.
In a lot of ways, a good WordPress theme sets the tone for the way people absorb your blog and its content. Does it flow? Does it stand out? Does it have flecks of your uniqueness? Getting all of those things on your first try isn’t easy, and often, it requires months of tweaking until you get it just right. Still, starting off with a theme that sets the foundation for what you’re looking to achieve is key to your success.
