Help! There are too many themes…

I cannot be the only blogger here who is having difficulty deciding which WordPress theme best suits my blog. They say that choice is good, but, to be honest, there are simply too many to review and pick from.

I have spent quite some time going through myriad styles that are offered me, some look good, others just don’t work the way I want them to. It is all so time consuming and tedious after a while. I would like to get a great theme and just stick with it – I am told having a “recognizable identity” is the thing to do on social media if I am to make anything useful from it. Given the rambling nature of my this blog, then at least I should try to have a consistent ”feel” to the page. Underlying all this though remains the point that this was really set up to try to promote my art for sale, so I do need to make sure that there some good images placed in prominent positions on the posts, without compromising page load speed.

So, that being said, you are now looking at the current iteration as of 24-Apr-2017. I would appreciate any feedback on the current blog layout (called Baskerville 2) – is it appealing or appalling? Is easy to use, or a pain to stroll though? Is it fast enough or does it drag when loading?

Please let me know.

    1. Thank you, Pete. Now that I have figured out how to stop the images double posting it seems to be a lot better. My other question is does it load fast enough? I have an old laptop (I even blogged about that) and it does seem to hang for a few seconds when loading the blog. I wondered if it was the same for others.

  1. At first I was confused (doesn’t take much to do that to me) but then I saw along the side all the search thingies for month, main themes, etc. and that makes it easier to navigate. Also like the masthead in dark and white with touches of color. Good one. Probably the best thing is to keep it for a month or two and see how easy it is for you.
