Blogging 201: Day Four

Trying out both the Desktop view and the Mobile view on a bunch of photo-focused themes.  

These themes were recommended by Michelle of WordPress:
My favorite photo-focused themes are Spun and Autofocus, but Oxygen might be my favorite all-around awesome free theme.

I had some problems with my widgets rearranging themselves when I tested various themes on my primary blog, so instead I tested them on my new ‘Art Gallery’ blog that I started yesterday. I copied four older posts that weren’t really suitable for my Travel blog into my new Gallery blog, and made them private. This worked quite well for getting a basic idea of how each Theme shows up. But in order to see how the ‘Feature’ pages work, all the posts have to be published, NOT private. And I’m not quite ready to go there yet with my new blog.

Spun looks great but for some reason the desktop view is all the photos are in black and white only – I wish it was more like the mobile view.

Autofocus does seem to clash big-time though – I think it would only work if I was taking all one type of photo, like all flowers or something…

Oxygen seems to be the best choice for now, and maybe later as well, as it has a ‘Feature’ page option that will work once I get some more posts published.
