    I have been using atahualpa which I've been pretty happy with but our blog is gaining popularity and I think it might be time for version 2.0.

    We definitely want to start offering advertising at some point so a theme that is friendly for managing that type of stuff is a must.

    I have been noticing that our blog is kind of drab compared to some others. I have noticed that other blogs in the top tier of popularity are making better use of the real estate on the blog - especially the footer. I also notice that most have larger and more prominent social networking buttons. I would also like to have an "as seen on:" section since we are starting to get some press as well.

    Another feature I have seen that I like is the rotating images and featured posts at the top of the page. A few blogs that I like the look of and feel they have a better overall design:

    http://www.inmalafide.com/
    http://www.nomadicmatt.com/
    http://theplanetd.com/
    http://www.wildjunket.com/

    Last but not least I'm looking for a mobile theme plugin. I have seen there are a couple. There one that is specifically for iOS that I'm not real impressed with and if I install something I would like it to work on all mobiles. The standard theme looks ok on an iPhone but I don't know about other mobiles? Any recommendations here?

    Also looking for some good facebook and twitter buttons but I made a separate thread for that here: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/best-twitter-follow-and-facebook-like-buttons?replies=1

    Our blog is http://www.singledudetravel.com/
