Have you noticed that there are less and less amazing WordPress themes that are free these days?
I wanted to change the theme of another blog that I maintain. I searched some sites I used to get themes from but I found that they are being sold now. I do understand that theme developers need to earn from their work but I miss the good old days when there were so many free themes to choose from. These days, one site has one free theme to offer, usually in exchange for a subscription to their blog. The rest of the themes are being sold or contain ads.
Another thing I noticed, WordPress themes have become too professional-looking. Most are created ala-magazine type where the front page has a slider and posts are displayed like small articles in magazines. Blogging has become too cold and the warmth provided by old free WordPress themes is no longer there.
