I recently learned of the Blueprint CSS framework, and wanted to apply it to a project I’m doing for work. However, I needed something simpler to try it in first, so I used it to design a new WordPress theme for this blog. This is something I’ve been wanting to do for a while, but it wasn’t really a priority.
Overall, I’m pretty happy with how it turned out, and Blueprint made it easy to get the layout right without hours of CSS fiddling. I’m not a CSS expert by any means, so often hours of fiddling are unavoidable if I need to do some complicated CSS.
For comparison, here’s an archive of what the old theme looked like:
I still want to theme the comments at some point, to get the Gravatars bigger, but it’s not a high priority. That aside, what do you think of the new theme?
