I don’t know whether this will resonate with you as a reader, but I saw a blog just now that I think looks very nice.
The site in question is named Freunden von Freuden – which I guess is Friend Of A Friend – and being the curious kind that I am, I wanted to know what theme the blog was using.
I opened up the style inspector in Safari, but the theme is named ‘fvonf’ which is of course derived from the name of the site.
That wasn’t telling me much so I popped the URL into What WordPress Theme Is That and it said that it was a modified TwentyTen and that the modification was done by Chuck Heckman.
His website is a heckchuckman (cute, eh?) and here is a link to some of his other work.
These are all self-hosted sites, but I guess most of the changes in FvonF could be imported into a WP.com site with the CSS upgrade.
I have been away from Edinburgh visiting my mother who is ill in hospital. The news was bleak but then things have improved.
I don’t usually talk about my own personal circumstances or feelings about my personal life here on this blog or elsewhere on line. But this is cathartic.
