WordPress WednesdaysEver since the launch of WordPress 2.5, everyone is excited about new ideas for themes, as well as the new ownership of WPDesigner.com!

These are some exciting developments, and I am getting excited about the future of my blogging life – including getting a new theme for this site. I have tried to keep my content and appearance fresh, but I am ready for some changes that will help me feel like I’m getting a good return on my blogging investment.

There have been some serious setbacks with this site, including loosing my archives to a twitchy finger, gaining a Google PageRank of 4 and watching it drop to ZERO.

But, it is almost the middle of 2008 and it is time to claim my destiny!

I’m looking for an affordable theme designer who is willing to work with me to create a new identity for this site as I work toward improving my site’s brand.

Of course, a new theme should have plugin compatibility and have a fresh, timeless look that is appealing to my core audience. Even if we tweak an existing theme, I want it to feel personalized and more unique than the average theme.

Leave your suggestions for designers and themers in the comments or send me an email.

UPDATE: I kept looking and looking and found this theme, the Mandigo theme by tom, which has enough pink to make me happy as well as widget support – no more hand coding for me (I hope!) . Okay, that theme was really bothering me and I just had to switch back to old faithful. However, keep the comments and suggestions coming, and I will do a roundup in a few weeks. ~ Ellie

Update 7/22/09: I am currently using SuperPress as my theme, and it works great!
