I’ve been blogging on WordPress for a little over a year and I’ve had this theme, the Choco theme, since the beginning of December. Before that, I was using the Delicacy theme, one that self-describes as a “culinary-oriented WordPress theme.” In case you haven’t figured it out yet, I am not a culinary-oriented blogger.
Prior to switching from the Delicacy theme to this Choco theme, I created one of those polls so that my readers could give me feedback. But at the time, I didn’t have many followers or readers. In fact, I averaged only 5.4 views a day for the first five months of my WordPress blog.
And when I conducted my poll back on December 3rd, I received a total of four votes. Three out of the four voters recommended switching to Choco. And so, with such an overwhelming mandate from the voters, I made the switch.
Just for grins and giggles, I went back to that post from December 3rd and saw that four more votes came in since I last checked the tally. Here’s where that December votes stands as of today:
- 50% voted for “Switch to Choco. Time to shake things up a bit.”
- 25% voted for “I don’t care. What matters is your content, not your appearance.”
- 25% voted for “Stick with Delicacy. It’s you. Why rock the boat?“
So even with the late arriving absentee votes, half voted to switch. And switch I did.
Fast forward to almost August. I’ve been thinking once again about a makeover. A little nip here, a little tuck there. You know, to keep things fresh and vibrant.
But, at the same time, I like my Choco theme. It’s relatively clean, easy to read (I think), and it doesn’t overwhelm. At least I don’t think it does.
So I decided that it’s time to, once again, put it to a vote, although this time, I don’t have a replacement theme in mind.
My post today includes a multiple choice poll asking you, my loyal readers, if you think I should stick with Choco or switch to some other theme.
After all, now that I’m averaging close to 200 views a day — woohoo — I’m hoping to get more than a handful of votes.
So here’s the poll:
As a special bonus, I’m also going to ask an essay question:
What is your favorite WordPress theme and why?
Please respond to this essay question in your comments.
Thanks. I’m looking forward to your input. Remember, vote early and vote often!
