WordPress is a great CMS (Content Management System) that allows the user to blog about their everyday life, business, and /or personal interests. Like many bloggers out there on the web, this is a form of expression and what better way to express one’s self on a blog then with an appealing theme. I personally like a nice clean and sleek theme that exudes elegance such as the fusion theme that can be found at http://dev.digitalnature.ro/fusion/wordpress/. This theme has many good qualities such as good use of white space, interactivity and a good color scheme.
The great thing about white space is that it illustrates consideration for your viewers. You do not want to burden your readers with a cluster of items or elements on screen. If you don’t use white space in a reader-friendly way, everything becomes unreadable on your site, no one will want to visit your blog and read what you have to say. That clearly defeats the purpose, doesn’t it? White space is like having a clean, organized room where everything can be found. Everyone loves to find things easily. Therefore, making white space is a critically important factor for a WordPress theme.
Another element that I like about the fusion theme is its’ built-in functionalities which makes it interactive. The interactive elements include some for resizing text and changing the spacing of the paragraphs within the theme. These functionalities allow the viewer to adjust the theme to their comfort. This feature alone makes the blog more user-friendly and inspires more interaction, more time on the site and an overall better user experience; good user experience generates return visits and loyalty. Finally, I like the sleek color scheme of the fusion theme. Color Scheme is virtually always important to aesthetically please the visitors and readers. Too many colors can cause a reader to be distracted and too little can cause disinterest and boredom. I believe that color portrays the blog’s mood, feel, and appeal. A good combination works wonders.
In conclusion, the fusion theme has the great qualities of white space, interactivity and a good color scheme which makes it an appealing theme that will make people want to come back to read more.
