I got carried away doing things that fall under the “Bling Your Blog” assignment before it was assigned. I wasted a lot of time during Collection I playing with colors and figuring out how to mix blog streams and static pages. I added a couple widgets to the side: a text widget with a bio and another with the menu. I will probably tweak the colors again—they’re too bold now.
I checked out other themes and decided that I like the default twenty-sixteen theme. I am a fan of serif fonts and menus along the top, which are defaults in this theme. I’ll probably keep it. I haven’t found any problems yet that require a plug-in to fix, so I haven’t installed any extras.
