New WordPress Theme

Once again it was time to change my theme and shake things up.  This time I went for something a little more simple that I can build upon.  This theme is called “Pride” by Wpdesigner.  I have already begun altering it and will continue to do so until I get that warm fuzzy feeling that let’s me know it’s perfect. Speaking of which, I really like this theme it’s clean and effective.  I didn’t like the 3 column theme so I removed the middle column and expanded the left one.  The colors are smooth and the curvy sidebar is a nice touch.

While I’m at it I’ll probably be changing a lot of other things around.  I want to find a way to make this blog more useful, not only to me but also to other participants.  If you have any ideas let me know in a comment.
