Last week we released Genesis 2.0, as well as the Sixteen Nine theme. You might think that Sixteen Nine looks familiar, which of course it should, since it was the theme I was using on my site here for a while.
Now that I’ve made a few promises and plan to write personally here, I have redesigned the theme I was using to be more minimalist. I want all of the focus to be on the content and quite simply didn’t want any other distractions.
Typically when I come up with a new design I am asked on Twitter if I’ll be making it available over at StudioPress as a theme folks can buy.
Because the theme I’m using is similar to the Sixteen Nine theme (centered, minimalist version), we’ll be holding off the release of it as we push out other themes. But hang on there amigos, I have some good news for you.
