Layout Change, Yay

Yay. New layout.

I’ve had my previous layout for quite a while – I think a couple of years? Or more? Yeah, THAT long. I still love my previous layout. I think Mystique is the best wordpress theme ever in terms of layout, colors and options available. Alas, I have to change. Why? Because it had issues since wordpress had major updates and well, I couldn’t stand the issues no more. The developer seems to have abandoned the theme since there has been no updates since last year.

Trying to find a wordpress theme that I like has been a pain the ass. Seems that you can hardly find layout for blogs nowadays, simple blog I mean. With a sidebar on the side and the content column. No. It’s all fancy magazine style now. I hate them all. Ones that I do like are not free. I don’t see why you need to pay like $100 for ONE theme that you need, or pay monthly for ONE theme that you’re probably gonna use for years like I did? Ridiculous.

Well this is the best theme I can find. Not much options to customize, and I had to deal with the theme php files to customize a little bit of this and that but after couple of days of stressing out, I finally like how it turns out despite it looking a bit plain than before. I’m not 100% in love with it because my heart is still with my previous mystique theme and layout but this will do. It’s the best I can come up with. Also cleaned up a bit, so it don’t look so messy now.

I’m hoping to get back into blogging more often now. Consider the layout change as my first step of coming back from my long hiatus. Toodles.
