Are you searching for a new look too?

Well, I was and I hope you like my new look. Before you get started, let me tell you it took a lot of work.work frog-1339892_640

But a big thank you goes to writer and blogger who just happens to be my sister, Sheila Good, for her suggestions. After several hours, and lots of swearing, I got it done without destroying my original blog.

If you’re thinking of changing your look, here are a few tips that might help.

  • First, start a new website with a different name of course and made it private.

This private website is your testing ground. Private means no one can see it but you. You can manipulate it, change the theme and just have fun until you get the right look without destroying your original blog.

  • How do you know if a theme has a page that will work for landing?

There are websites on WordPress.com that have multiple pages. This is why it’s important to play with different themes. Once you find a theme, go to Pages – Add New Page and click on Page Attributes. (this box is usually on the far right.) page attributes

Under Template, there will be choices. Default or as in mine Guestbook. Other themes templates are named differently. If there are no multiple templates, time to try another theme.

 

  • Next, go to Appearance, Customize and select Static Front Page option. static pageThere you can  select which page you want as your landing page.

 

I hope this is a little clearer than mud, and it helps you find just the right theme for your website.

But, remember to make a different website for your experiments.  

Now it’s your turn. 

How did you select your blog theme?

Any suggestions to make it easier for others?
