Today’s assignment: try out at least three other themes — even if you’re happy with the one you have. Include at least one you would never think of using.
Choosing a theme for myself is never easy. With so many themes available, I had spent quite a lot of time before I chose the Yoko theme when I just created Otaku Daydreams. For today’s assignment, although I tried out a few other themes, I still decided to stick to my current one, Yoko.
Why did I choose the Yoko theme?
To me, the theme of my blog reflects me and my personality. Yoko is simple but nice. I’m not a person who likes to stand out, so it fits my personality. Somehow, I feel that the Yoko theme matches my blog title, Otaku Daydreams. The header is big enough to fit a picture of my favourite anime, Fairy Tail. This represents “Otaku”. The default colours of the theme include white, blue and light grey. Since they aren’t bright, bold colours, they give a calm and relaxing feeling. You can only daydream when you’re calm and relaxed, so the colours represent “Daydreams”. Put the two words together and there you go, “Otaku Daydreams” is formed.
Nothing is perfect, and there’s always something about a theme that I don’t like. For Yoko, what I dislike is how the main text is written in grey. I would prefer to have it in black so it would be clearer.
I have been looking around the blogs I’ve followed to see what themes they have. Even without the prompt from Zero to Hero, I look at other themes very often. Yet, what suits other people might not suit me, so the Yoko theme is here to stay, unless I change my mind one day. I love my theme.
