Clean non-blog-looking themes? (7 posts)

    Hi all.

    I've been trying to find a nice clean, basic but sleek theme for my blog. It's nearly three years old and is becoming cluttered..but I just can't find any themes. A lot seem to follow the same blog-style template with posts scrolling down and down.

    One site I absolutely love (content - but the design especially) is Devlounge. It is beautiful and I especially like the idea of using "clusters": having one post at the top, and using excerpts for 4 or 6 other posts below. It's just really functional and looks terrific.

    But I can't find anything similar, and nor do I have a hope of designing it myself! Should I head over to the WP-Pro and shell out some cash, or does anyone know of a template which might suit?

    Thanks in anticipation

    Will

    Did you see Hemingway Reloaded over at the Theme Viewer site?

    Thanks Michael. Looks very nice, if a little too simple! But it's a great start

    Try my new generic blue theme:

    It's clean and simple.

    While you may not want to tackle writing your own theme from scratch, I suggest you take one you like, then alter it to meet your requrements. You can also change the colours, etc. That way your site will look unique and not like a generic blog.
