I actually released the Bliss theme on the day of the site launch. It hasn’t received a lot of publicity though.
It’s a blogger’s theme; how could it compete with the likes of the magazine-type themes around here?
I think it’s time to let the world take a good look at it. Check out the theme demo.
You won’t see anything fancy here. It’s purely a blogger’s theme. Nothing more. Nothing less.
The focus is on your content. I put a lot of work into making sure the typography was readable. I’m fairly certain there’s a style for just about any element you can think of.
The default style adds a three-column widget area in the footer. With appropriate CSS work, you could move it anywhere (well, almost anywhere).
It’s definitely ready for our child theme concept. Actually, I have a child theme brewing for it right now that’ll show you a bit of what we can do when we get our creative juices flowing.
What’s with the theme name?
I named this theme Bliss because that’s what it was for me — getting back to the roots of design, designing for the sake of designing. Not being a code monkey for a bit. I was happy to just be working on the design side of things a little more than writing so much PHP.
Don’t let the simplicity fool you though. You won’t find a lot of other plain ol’ blogger’s themes with what this theme has under the hood.
Give it a test spin and download it if you just want to blog.
