Chocolicious

When I first started Tien Unscripted in December 2010, I spent days trying out different themes because I am fickle-minded like that. I particularly wanted a blog theme that is easily readable because I wanted my writings to be the centre of attention. So only themes with a fairly wide width appealed to me. But then I also wanted a personalised look for my blog so that it won’t look too standardised.

After changing and readjusting to at least 5 themes, I finally settled for the default Twenty Ten because it still has the best readability compared to all other themes – my opinion. I particularly like its clean look, large fonts and it comes with lots of theme options. My full attempt on personalising the overall look only included usage of typekit fonts and a plain green coloured background instead of the default one. I wanted to tweak it more but, well, I have neither HTML nor CSS knowledge! Plus WordPress does not allow CSS alterations unless you pay. I personally hated the header image!  But since I am hopeless in coming up with really creative design or ideas of the like, I had to settle with the standardised image from WordPress.

I was telling myself week after week that I would think of a nice photo or image design to go onto the header, then that would make me happy. Alas, weeks went into months and this morning, I decided I would just do away with the “really catchy and awesome header image” and just use a more artsy and stylish theme to make up!

So…..tadaaa…..the new Choco theme from WordPress!

Hope you like it as much as I do. Tell me what you think 🙂
