Notice anything different about me?

No, I didn’t get a haircut.

No, I haven’t lost weight.

…………..

Yes, it’s the new theme! Ta-daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

I really like it, like a lot a lot. Others who shall not be named aren’t as keen to it but that’s because some people don’t like change and aren’t female so pink and green aren’t exactly his thing. Okay, we all knew it was Kevin.

I decided to just go for it since changing my theme has been eating at me for quite some time, and then I spent a few hours tweaking this thing like crazy. I’m still waiting for the guy who developed it to tell me what to do about the header but it’ll do for now.

Isn’t she pretty? If I were wearing say, a new dress, I’d be twirling around while I preen.

There are a few options I haven’t exercised yet but overall, the theme is exactly what I wanted. It’s got a few extra bells and whistles and a lot more widget area, so I could spread things out without feeling quite so cramped. The footer looks way better and I think navigation will be infinitely easier, too.

New items are an Archives page in the main menu and social media buttons to the right. And let’s not forget about the font. I’m no longer publishing in the Georgia font. Thanks be to God, I have moved on and can have a nice, easier-to-read font on my blog!

Pretty spiffy, right?

I lurve it.

And for anyone who has questions about upgrading to a Premium Theme on WordPress, they do give you the option of getting a refund if you’re displeased with the theme overall. While I don’t think I’ll be asking for one, it’s nice to have that peace of mind.

Hooray!

Edit: I updated the iPad feature included with this theme, so that for those of you who are lucky ducks and have one, you’ll see a specific launch image when you add Zoe Says to your home screen and open the site from there. (I’d be pretty honored if one of you out there actually added me to an iPad home screen.)

  1. Love the new theme! It fits you perfectly 🙂 I personally embrace change and love to mix it up. Keeps things fresh. Time well spent Zoe!

  2. It looks great! It’s nice and clean and seems pretty easy to navigate.

  3. I love the new theme. It seems more like you from what I’ve been reading.

    • Thanks very much! Your comment made me laugh. It is definitely more me. Though, this theme is even girlier than how I have it. I disabled the hearts throughout and decided to go with a different background than just having it be pink. Still, it’s easy on the eyes.

  4. I LOVE it!!! Especially the background image on the sides – what is that, shadows on stucco? Whatever it is, it’s perfect. I really need to work on mine… sigh

    • Haha, it’s a texture I bought in a set. This one is called Vintage Clouds. I thought it offset the colors of the blog nicely and was relatively neutral. Glad you like it!

  5. HEY ZOE! LOVE THE NEW THEME! CHANGE IS GOOD & YOU ARE AWESOME!

  6. LOVING!

  7. Love this! Hardly even looks like a wp.com blog. More like a website- very clean and nice. 🙂

  8. Love it–love the colors, love the font, and love the idea of change its own sake. It’s awesome!
