    Hi everyone,

    I am thinking of switching from WordPress back to Blogger, because no matter what I try, I can’t get my WordPress blog looking as I’d like it. I would really like to avoid switching, as I’m happy with WordPress’s mechanics so far, besides some frustrations with the themes. Basically, what I’m trying to come up with is a theme that is so painfully simple (Just a white background, minimal to no design features, that uses a serif font). Basically, here is an example from blogger of what I am wanting to achieve: http://www.beehivecraftcollective.blogspot.com/. Simple! Simple! Simple! Instead of what I currently have at http://www.notmytypewriter.com. Any advice would be very welcomed, as I’m planning to make the switch to Blogger in the next few days if I can find a simple fix.

    Thank you!

    The blog I need help with is notmytypewriter.com.

    Hi. Have you tried http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/ ?

    You can select to filter results by criteria (Clean, Minimalist, White, etc.)

    Have you experimented with all the themes yet? There are a lot, surely there is one of them that you like.

    You can remove widgets to keep it simple.

    I recommend to use The Journalist v1.9 theme and do CSS ‘trick’ to change its default font (Lucida Sans Unicode, font-size 13px) to Georgia font-size: 15px.

    Check this page how it’s look –> http://oogituu.wordpress.com/2011/04/24/mengubah-font-paragraf-wordpress/

    <div style="font-family:'Georgia';font-size:15px;">
    Your post...(in HTML edit mode)
    </div>

    note: I myself don’t use Typekit;)

    You might want to check out Under the Influence. You can have 2 or 3 columns, add your own header, which could be predominately white. I think the fonts are just want you are looking for.

    Here’s what I did with the theme.

    Thanks so much for the suggestions everyone! I appreciate it. I will spend some time this weekend trying to adopt some of these suggestions. Thanks all.
