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.
