Oooh! I think that I found my theme – finally!

Yippee! homeschooljournal.net just added this awesome Tropical Breeze theme and I love it! I have been playing around with themes for the past week or so and had not found one that was “just right”.

I really liked the dark maple one, but it was, well a little bit too dark. More fall colors which are beautiful and I like in the fall, but are not really “me”. I am much more the spring color type.

I also liked the blue one that I tried for a little while, but the tagline (the throwingmarshmallows quote) was not as prominent (and since that really is the basis for this blog, I want it to be obvious). The blue theme also is actually a very narrow column blog. I tend to write long blog posts (what, who me?) so the wider the better or else people are scrolling forever!

So here we are today with this lovely apple green and purple blog. I love it! It actually did not have the tagline on it at first, but I emailed Andrea and asked if it could be added and in less then an hour it was! Talk about great service.

Of course, me being the picky person that I am, I have a few tweaks that I would like to see. I would love to see the blog title and tagline a bit more prominent (like in the Dark Maple theme). And I would like to have the sidebar titles be a bit smaller and maybe a different font.

But overall I love it so I think that I will stay with it and be happy! At least until they start adding some more new themes….

About throwingmarshmallows

I am a homeschooling mom to two sweet, energetic boys although I am probably not exactly what you would expect (definitely NOT your stereotypical homeschooler, if there is really such a thing). I support progressive political causes (yes, liberals can and do homeschool!) and I have found a spiritual home in the Unitarian Universalist Church. I have no real idea of how I want to use this blog, but will probably focus on homeschooling, things that I am learning from my boys, personal thoughts and opinions and maybe some liberal politics thrown in, who knows!

    I like this theme. Andrea gets credit for getting it ready (and finding it I think) for the site.
