After what seems like months of deliberation, I have finally changed the theme of my blog to a much brighter, cleaner theme. Overall, I’m happy with the result and I think the main improvement is that my blog is now easier to read. My previous theme, iNove, was one of the most popular on WordPress and I enjoyed using it because it was easy to customize. However, my new theme, Evolve, is even easier to customize and has many more features and layout options. I’m still experimenting with it and tweaking a few things (hence the title of this post) and I’m looking forward to adding more features in the future.
Unfortunately I have needed to deactivate one of my favourite plugins – Max Banner Ads. It worked really well in my last theme and I liked the way I could place banners almost anywhere in my blog. However, it doesn’t quite look right in Evolve so I have deactivated it and I will use Evolve’s built-in “ads” feature. I’ve also deleted some other widgets and ad blocks which I now realize were just cluttering up my previous theme. I really like the “clean” look that a lot of blogs seem to have these days.
Finally, I’m hoping that my new-look blog will motivate me to blog more. Monetizing my blog is less important to me now so, in the future, I plan to blog more about the things I am interested in away from Internet Marketing. If you visit my Twitter page using the link at the top of the page you will find out more about me and see that I’m interested in gadgets, the internet, sport, music and movies. More posts related to those topics will follow.
