    Hi!

    A while back, I made this theme. The idea, originally, was to start a Blog using it. But real life got in the way, and it probably will keep getting in the way for a while. So I thought, why not release the theme?

    Of course, the theme was made for my self, whit my tastes. It's really simple, it has no custom menus, no fancy animations. But I kinda like it. Any ideas how to improve it to submit, functionalities I should add, etc? or should I just scrap it?

    Keep in mind I'm not a designer so any advice you have, however basic it may seem to you, could help me. :)

    thanks!

    Hello!

    Okay so since nobody else has responded, I thought I'd throw some of my initial thoughts into the comments -

    And just so I am clear - this is ALL meant to help you out. I am in no way whatsoever praising or downgrading your work!

    1. Line-Height of the body text just seemed too short. Increase it - give the text some room to breathe.
    2. Font-size of the body text also seemed off. Maybe bring it down a px or two.
    3. Gallery - You can't tell which links are which unless you hover over them. That's not a good User Experience...
    4. Column Width - if you have a wider screen like me, the body text gets awfully long. Maybe have a 3rd column on the right, and sandwich the body text between the two? Just saying...

    Anyways, I hope that helps you with some direction to go and maintain/enhance it!

    Best,
    Connor
