WordPress Theme

I’m seriously considering purchasing Chris Pearson‘s Thesis theme. For some reason I have started hating the look and feel of my own site. I want to change everything about it. It’s looked pretty much the same for almost 4 years now…

Update 2008-08-21: I did it. I bit the bullet and am now running Thesis. What do you think?
Update 2013-09-29: I have changed the theme on this site once again. I built this one from scratch, but based it primarily on the amazing medium.com design.
Update 2017-02-01: I have changed the theme on this site. I again built this one from scratch, but based it on one from Pixelarity.
2024-01-23: I built a new theme based on bootstrap and am probably going to roll with this for awhile.

  1. Meh. Not sure I’m a fan of the new theme. I’m so accustomed to the center format of your original layout – the additional columns makes the site look too busy but maybe after a week or two I’ll change my mind.

A few years ago I was trying to determine what cocktails I could make with the alcohol I had at home. I searched the App Store but couldn't find an app that would let me do that, so I built one.
