I would like to take this time to thank Brian Gardner, he has helped me customized the wordpress theme to my liking and needs. The Revolution theme is a wordpress template/theme which I have purchased to give you the proper structure of my new blog.
The revolution theme is used for a news aspect but I liked the idea of giving my posts more exposure by popular categories that I decided to purchase this theme from Brian. Why the Revolution? Again the structure of what I wanted was there, it provided more room and exposure for my already busy blog.
My blog is still young and it has been developing over the months. I have personally went through 3 facelifts (I must be an ugly blogger) and with this new addition, my 4th. I wanted to create a more interactive layout and navigation to the reader, and not just a "blog." I have also increased the Blog Real Estate on my blog, giving more authors and bloggers a chance to advertise their ads within the blog.
Here is a snapshot of the old layout:
This free theme was also done by Brian Gardner, its perfectly neat and used properly to the structure of a blog. As you can see from the sidebars - it is a little messy. The fact which I can provide more exposure to specific category posts kept me eying this theme for a while, ever since it came out.Since I use to be a web designer I visualize the problem of blogs, OLD posts will never be seen ever again! It just keeps getting pushed to the back of the archives, lost and alone.Brians' Revolution theme provide more exposure to recent posts and on the front page until a new recent post is posted within that targeted category. It provides a new navigation to the end user. I can alternate or recycle old posts, but why duplicate it - when it can be referenced.
With the new design - there are new plugins that I have worked with some programmers, found, or I created. So you may find some interesting things within the blog itself.
