    How do I choose between the 2011 and Linen designs? I have the Ocean design but want to change up. Which of these two themes offer the most options?

    The blog I need help with is



    Theme selection is an entirely personal choice, only you can decide what you want your blog to look like.
    Of course, you aren’t stuck with only one, you can always change it over if you don’t like what you see the first time.


    Of course, it is personal. My question is functionality. Which offers more – or best options for more creative posts. I dont know how to interpret what Linen does. It is a Premium theme – so it isn’t quite just switch. Also whatevef I choose will require time to fine tune.

    Well, you have not defined what “functionality” you are looking for. Creativity is what you make of something. That is in all ways personal. But if you have some specific requirements which you can define, then you can use the filters here:

    We volunteers cannot advise about premium themes because we have no access to experiment with them. But lots of us know about the other free themes and their ins and outs…

    There is also this possibility for you:

    If a Premium theme doesn’t work out we offer a full refund up to 30 days from your purchase. To cancel your purchase and obtain a refund, please use the Cancel button on the Store -> My Upgrades page. You can always switch to any other Premium theme or one of our other fantastic free themes. And don’t worry, we’re adding more and more free themes all the time. :)

    I would also suggest that you make another free blog and make it private, export your current content, import it into the second blog to experiment with the free themes which are available on With your content visible you can play around with all the different features, options, and quirks. How do tables work? How do images and galleries look? What if you learn a little html and the wonders you could do with that? Do you like the way quotations look? Can you make custom excerpts? What do category/tag/archive pages look like? How do the menus look? What about custom headers: and background colours? Are there featured images? Are there various post or page templates? and lots more options to consider.
