From A(quene) to B(eacon)

It was time for a little refresh. While I still enjoy the clean look of the ‘Aquene’ theme, I felt like a change. With the new year coming up, I thought this was a good a time as any to play around with my blog.

I decided to go for the ‘Beacon’ theme. I love how you can add blocks of categories to bring in a bit more diversity on the main page. Two things bug me, though:

  • 1. the ‘follow’ button of the widget to follow my blog per e-mail is orange. I’ve changed the colours of the links, but I don’t know how to change this stupid button, haha! So I decided to move all widgets from the sidebar to the footer. Looks nice too! 😉
  • 2. I can’t remove the second tab at the top that now says ‘most discussed’! Sounds a bit pretentious to me, but maybe I’m just too picky. What would be a less ‘annoying’ title for this tab?

What do you think? How long do you generally keep the theme of your blog? What type of theme is your favourite?

  1. I think its worthwhile playing around with new themes, but rarely actually do a full up change. One thing I like about the new blocks is that there is the variety of formats available, whichever theme you use.

    1. Yes, the variety of formats is very nice! In nearly seven years, this is only the third theme I’ve switched to, so I hear you on rarely doing a full change 😉
