Ah, the question of Blogger or WordPress. Both have been suffering from relatively nerdy designs lately compared to other platforms like Tumblr, Squarespace, and Virb. Even though WordPress has a history of customizing themes, still finding a simple and fashion-friendly base theme to work off of is difficult. I know, I've been searching for a new theme for Eat, Sleep, Denim for ages and finally found a theme on Blog Milk (the new ESD site launched yesterday). A year ago, I had posted about Blog Milk who had limited edition themes for Blogger. Now the shop has opened to WordPress so you don't have to make the headache-inducing move to WordPress (or vice versa) to get the look and feel you want for your blog. What's more, is that with the limit of 15 installations per design, your blog won't look like everyone else's.
These are premium themes, so they do cost around $79 to purchase. But for those who are not tech-savvy, and would rather spend their Saturdays galavanting around town than at the computer, it's well worth it, as the themes are indeed simple, but nuanced enough to stand out from the standard themes available. Some of the features that I like are the static navigation bar on “Structure,” and the elegant use of typography. Either way, it's worth a trip over to Blog Milk for inspiration.
