The essence of blogging is content, unfortunately that has been forgotten by many.
It’s easy to find themes that are built on heavy imagery; completely forgetting the basic premise of blogging being an online journal. I’ve pushed for simplistic design for years and believe that we will see a revival in minimal design not only in the blogging world, but throughout the entire web.
And yes, I shamelessly self-promote my own WordPress themes.

Embrace typography, white space and remember â blogging is about content, have your design reflect that idea by drawing attention away from other elements and keeping the focus on the text.
