Here’s a picture of a pretty lady to distract youse:

But that’s not to say mechanical, or minimalistic, is necessarily undesirable (I don’t want to deal with the complexities of the guts).

Basically, the default components of a WordPress blog are:

  • header
  • content
  • sidebar
  • footer

And there’s a high probability that most web pages are designed like this, especially when there is navigation. A WordPress blog then becomes like a library card catalog (yikes, youngin’s won’t remember those) and visitors can easily access entries from past dates. Before CMS existed, most HTML designers were linking pages manually. I’ve found myself doing that to this day and it’s still a pain, especially when I want to post all sorts of junk simultaneously without having to worry about organization.

So far, I’ve been trying to really minimize the layout.
