WordPress is working on a new theme for 2010, called “Twenty Ten” http://2010dev.wordpress.com/ The new theme supports a lot of built in options for customizing the banner, background, and typefaces. Kubrik was a great starting place for a lot of <= 2.8 themes, but with 2.9 and 3.0 coming out, it’s time to embrace the upgrade. Go WordPress team!
I’d like to coin the term “click affinity” in the world of web design – if it does not already exist. I just realized this concept when I visited the Wall Steet Journal’s online magazine site and was immediately tempted to click on many of the stories. It was a difficult struggle as I had many other things I needed to be working on (ie: no time to visit that site) but there was still a pull to get into their content. In addition to having good design and usability, the real core piece of being popular online is having good content, which is: Unique / Original Up to date Well-written / Easy to understand I believe having valuable content, content-teasers, graphics, and yes – even ads will increase that content’s “click affinity,” which will engage users. Try to present good content! Raise the click affinity for the items on your website.
I’ve been thinking that I need to revamp the site again, maybe do a more custom template. I don’t really do any advertising here, nor do I plan to, so I’m thinking of going with a minimalistic theme that just highlights the content well.
