My site, http://www.spokesandpetals.wordpress.com, is currently using "The Twenty Eleven" theme. I'm really wanting to give it a fresher look, and am considering both "Sight" (free!) and "Profile" (fancy?).
I am wanting to keep the same(ish?) content and (ideally!) want a theme that will switch over pretty smoothly, instead of my having to spend days piecing it together to look decent. When I did the live preview of "Sight" it didn't show any pictures, so I'm curious: does the user get to select the showcased image for each post? Also, the site title, "Spokes and Petals," looked terrible. It took up three lines, and the sight description was even worse, written in a tiny font being crowded on the same line as "Petals" Does this just look terrible b/c the live preview is set for a much briefer title?
Also, what are the merits of "sight" and/or "profile" over "twenty eleven"?
Quick backstory: I write about the wilderness within cities--animals, plants, waterways, etc., and how we interact with it. I'm looking to do a lot more writing in the coming years, hoping to make it a legit part of my income. (I have a book deal; squee.) Ideally I'd like to put together a website that advertises myself well while also featuring real pretty content. And, ideally, I'd like to not spend too much extra money on it, because I am quite low-income.
Any and all feedback is appreciated! Unless all you want to do is to sell me a Russian bride; all good on those at present.
The blog I need help with is spokesandpetals.wordpress.com.
